“Sometimes the love our heart needs to heal can be found in the familiar eyes of a childhood friend…
Julie Porter learned the hard way that trust is something which must be earned and not something to be given out lightly, those who say they love you are those who hold the power to hurt you most, and best friends can help you survive anything—until they move away.
Nick Owen knows a thing or two about a hard life. At a young age Nick learned how to take a hit and to make lemonade out of the lemons life tossed his way. Returning home after nearly two years of being away, all Nick cares about now is protecting his mom from the abusive hands of his father and catching up with his best friend—the girl who lived across the street, the girl he can’t seem to stop thinking about.
Finally reunited after two years apart, Nick and Julie are about to learn that age does nothing to protect you from life’s trials and tribulations, heartache and loss, but maybe together they’ll find a way to survive.”
If you know me, you know by now that I love a good drama filled story. This story gave me just that. It’s had so much emotion, so much history that after reading the story, it changed me.
What I loved most about this story is the great plot. We have two kids forced to live life’s silently and alone. Well, not alone but all they had were each other. They grew up finding solace in one another, creating a friendship of a lifetime. Then life happens. They are separated and one is left to suffer alone. When they finally come back to each other, it’s like everything stopped. As the reader, you felt the need for them to find each other once again. You want them to find peace and have the other save the friendship that is lost.
I like the their love didn’t come back together in one night. It’s takes time for them to open up and trust one another again. I loved that they found stolen peaceful moments that created such life in them. You can immediately tell that once their with one another, their whole personalty changes.
The Unloved is a highly emotional book that can capture any reader. The moments that dazzle the reader are the one that touch deeper into the soul. The gripping moment along with the loved that is form is a highly entertaining read. The Unloved is enriched with a great plot and moving characters. The Unloved is awesome!
I give it 4 BITES!
