If I would have known then what I know now.
If I would have known that having my heart broken at thirteen by my one and only friend, Garrett Rhodes, would never compare to the empty feeling at sixteen when I buried my mother.
If I would have known that changing schools in my senior year would throw all that back in my face.
Maybe … just maybe … I wouldn’t be in the hell storm I’m living in these days. Letting my past dictate my future, allowing the best of the best male MMA fighters bully me day in and day out and knowing no matter what I do, Garrett will always be the only man that understands me. I didn’t have to live this way. One day changed the course of my life forever.
Through all this mess, the one thing that I’ve found that keeps me centered … martial arts. And I’m damn good. If only someone would give me a chance to prove my worth.
All I can do now is make the best of it and try to not let the fight consume me.
Or has it already?
Let me start by saying I have been in one big fat book funk lately, which is ultimate hell on a blogger. But this book…This book I couldn’t put down. This book brought me out of that funk and held me in its grasp. I began reading and couldn’t stop until I was done. It was that good!!
There is absolutely no way that I will be giving anything away though, you will just have to wait to read it for yourself. Raven was such an easy read for me it flowed beautifully. I loved every single word of it. I never once skipped over or thought “hurry the hell up already.” I was held captive by this story.
Rian bless her heart endured more than any one young woman should ever have too. She endured though and she came out the better for it. Garrett is definitely book boyfriend material and I loved him. Ugh this is so hard to do because there is so much I want to say but refuse to ruin the least little thing.
