At first, I saw him as everyone else did. But then, I saw him for who he really was. Recognized the beauty beneath the pain. Loved the quirks disguising the insecurity. Embraced the man who hid behind the boy. But there was so much more… More I didn’t know. And once I did, I couldn’t let go… Of the boy. The man. The lover… …even if his past is threatening our future. Nothing will alter what we’ve built.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given this book through New Adult Book Club on Goodreads and the author for an honest review.

This book was a sort of ugly duckling romance. I loved that she is able to see past his ugly duckling issues and see into his soul. Although I will not give the end away, all I can say is that is so awesome. Not only is she able to see him but he helps heal her. I did expect her ex to be a little more prominent in the book because it seemed to lead me there based on what she says at some times, but I was glad the book stayed focused. Good read!
