HEARTS AND BRUISES
by A.M Brooks
Release Date March 19
This book by A.M Brooks had me feeling all sorts of fckd up. Her writing was so good that you would never know that this is her debut novel.
Darrian King is a character you love to hate. But in all honesty I just hated him. Nora started out being feisty but ended up be so naive and a pushover.
The push and pull between the two was annoying. Not in a bad way as it worked well with their character development and the storyline. It was what we would say is typical teenage behaviour.
A.M Brooks definitely has all the issues of young adults perfectly depicted. So many aspects were covered in Hearts and Bruises, the pressure to do well, social standings, peer pressure, drugs, etc…
This book had me feeling frustrated, annoyed and had my blood pressure rising at a point or two. Lol
Book 2 cannot come quick enough. She has her work cut out for her to redeem Darrian’s character. Congrats to A.M Brooks on a awesome debut novel!
With love comes pain.
And with pain comes scars.
Believe me, I have had my share of it all.
After my mother’s death, my father couldn’t deal.
So once again, we’re moving.
To a town full of lies, darkness, and corruption.
All masked in sunshine and money.
But then I meet him…
My biggest mistake.
My biggest temptation.
A royal pain-in-the-ass.
And Darrian King is no prince.
He’s controlling, aggressive, and downright wrong for me.
But what he dishes out,
I give right back.
After all, love hurts.
And so do we.
