After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

Summary:

Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing it deserves is forgiveness.

The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Summary (Goodreads):

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

  • Out of all Colleen Hoover’s books, this is still my all time favorite and it’s the first Colleen Hoover book I’ve read. I fell in love with Will and Layken’s story and so as the slam poetry. I’ve re-read it this year and it still made me cry. I highly recommend this book. ❤ 🙂

“Choosing to be with you, isn’t a difficult decision, Jacqueline…It’s easy. Incredibly easy.”

eee

Easy by Tammara Webber

  • Easy  is the first book that made me love the New Adult genre. If you are going to start venturing on it, I recommend this one. It’s swoon-worthy, beautiful and romantic. Lucas… omg. *swoons* flawless. I’m not kidding. He’s just one of the NA men you’ll adore.

“Loving you is the stupidest, most selfish thing I’ve ever done, but I can’t stop. God knows I’ve tried”

Broken Juliet by Leisa Rayven

  • This is the sequel to Bad Romeo. Leisa Rayven truly captured my heart on her writing style and this series screams HOTNESS because it’s really intense. Like OMFG intense. Ethan Holt. I love you. I miss you.  GAH! He’s swoon-worthy. My Bad Romeo. ❤ One of my favorite NA books of all time.
