*Some aspects of this story may be sensitive for some readers.

I’m once again surprised by a book. I didn’t expect it to be like this.
It broke my heart, it opened my eyes and once again I’m thankful for the life lesson. 

I don’t remember how many times I’ve made assumptions about the women who are abused by their partners. How many times I’ve said “if i were her, i’d leave his ass after the very first time he touches me”. 
But this book makes you realize you have no idea how complicated it can be and you have absolutely no right to judge someone else and definitely you don’t know shit. 

So yeah, thanks for opening my eyes and breaking my heart in the meantime. This book is about victims of domestic violence. The romance part of it it’s totally overshadowed by it. Definitely not what i was expecting.
