ARC REVIEW ➽ ACHE BY S.M. SOTTO

9 April 2019

A second chance romance 
What happens when you fall for the boy next door?

Bea Norwood had the market on normal.
Drama free life? Check.
A single-mother who doubled as her confidant and partner in crime? Check.
A neighbor and best friend she trusted more than anyone? Check.
But that was until the day her mother remarried. The day that changed everything.

When her best friend's cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother's daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces.

Six years later, Liam takes a trip back to Lakeport to visit his family, and to see HER.
His first love.
The girl who holds his heart.
The same girl who shattered it six years ago without looking back.

Liam is hell-bent on seeing Bea again after six years, but what he finds tears his heart in half. Bea Norwood is a shell of the girl he fell in love with. Underneath the baggy clothes, and pale skin, he knows she's still in there somewhere, he just needs to find her. 
Liam will stop at nothing to win his girl back, but sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and Liam isn't prepared for Bea's truth.

'ACHE'
Is a full length second chance romance novel by S.M. Sotto

A word of warning: This book won't be for everyone. It contains themes of abuse. And may cause triggers.

Just like the title of this book, your heart will ache in the same way as these characters did. My heart broke in two, such a heartbreaking roller coaster of a read that gutted me to the core.

There were things I adored about this book, there were other things even for me were too hard to swallow. I went into this eyes wide open fully understanding what was going to occur and was prepared for the emotional turmoil that I was going to go through. And it honestly did put me through the paces, rage, sadness, disbelief, shock, the emotions just kept coming, and coming, and coming, which is what this author excels at. She's the queen at throwing everything at us readers, and like gluttons for punishment we call just keep coming back for more, but this is what I love so much about her writing. 

Her mother pissed me off to no end what I couldn't understand was how her own mother was so oblivious to the behaviours her daughter was displaying. How could she not see the change in her demeanour. Just hard to fathom. That is where the struggle for me occurred. That is where I felt such a deep emotional rage that gutted me..
