Product Description

Product Description


I admit, I didn’t think much of Charlie at first. She was rounder than the girls who usually caught my eye. Not my type. But when I saw her sitting in that booth alone, for the first time something in my mind or my instincts or my heart told me to join her.

She defied me.
She challenged me.
She gave me hope.
Before I knew it, moving forward was my only option.


I couldn’t tell you when it happened, but it had to have been a gradual change; I never moved too quickly.

If someone would have told me earlier that year what I was going to go through, I wouldn't have believed them.

Jesse was so different from anyone I’d met before. And everyone I’ve met since. He sucked all the life out of me, in the best—and worst—ways.

We don’t get strong overnight. For most of us it takes time. Strength isn’t measured by how high and fast our walls go up, but how easily we can watch them fall.

This book contains material that might be a trigger for some readers. Abuse and rape are implied, but not described in detail. Discretion is advised.

This book, sigh…

… it was emotionally taxing, sigh…

I have 2 of Amalie’s books waiting to be read, Word Play and Four Play, 2 light funny reads if I recall some of my Goodreads friends’ reviews. Then the cover for this caught my eye. I love the cover! I quickly read the blurb, it didn’t sound funny, but hey, I’ve heard nothing but good things about Amalie’s other books.

After reading this, boy was I in for a surprise! And kinda’ glad in a way that it ended up being my 1st Amalie read. I’m thinking if she can write angst like this, then her funny ones must be really funny.

You get the story of Charlie and Jesse, 2 20-something folks with normal jobs in a pizza place. For whatever reason, they each caught each other’s attention and what began was a friendship, albeit tenuous. Charlie, for all her past experience, is tuned in to Jesse’s feelings. Jesse, on the other hand, doesn’t understand his pull towards Charlie. I wanted to say the friendship grows, but not really. As Charlie figures things out, so does Jesse.

Charlie’s and Jesse’s issues are very real. I can’t relate, but they’re issues one is bound to know well enough whether thru personal experience or those of other’s around. The inner struggle, the aftermath of cruel actions, surviving, the struggles of daily living when facing demons constantly, trying to stay on the right path… Is this really romance? Not sure… Doesn’t sound like it, does it? Yet it is, really.

Maybe it’s just me but the blurb did not prepare me for the heaviness of this book. A few times I’ve asked myself if I wanted to finish it, yet something in the writing makes me want to find out more. At every turn of the page, I was getting impatient but worried at the same time at what could possibly go down.

This book isn't about fairytale and fantasy. It is a story that may seem like ordinary life, however it packs an emotional punch of infatuation, love, and hate.

Charlie is a girl who is drudging through life not truly living it. She isn't happy with herself or the life that she isn't really living. Then she meets Jesse.... who causes her to feel things that she has never felt before.
"There was something familiar about his pensive and bitter personality that made ignoring him next to impossible. I’d never been so conflicted with my pull toward someone."

These feelings not only twist her relationship with Jesse but have her questioning herself.

Jesse is a man all for himself. Selfish and careless with people's feelings....especially Charlie's. “No offense, but I wouldn’t care if you lived or died.” As he is blunt and harsh from the very beginning, I wondered is this truly how he felt....or was he afraid to feel.

The story is told in a dual POV style that Amalie Silver has masterfully used to allow us inside Charlie and Jesse's heads. The push & pull of emotions took this story that seemed to tell a tale of ordinary regular into an emotional roller coaster.

Thank you, Amalie Silver. Thank you for giving us different. Thank you for sharing Charlie. I can't wait for more.

I received an ARC for an honest review.
