Zar Evans is not your typical high school senior; in fact she is anything by normal. Dressing to the trendiest Goth fashion, Zar wears nothing but black from head to toe. Not that this warrants unwanted attention, but she is also top in her class and is looking at a full academic scholarship to Iowa State in the fall.

I think the fact that this is YA is what led to my rating. It was all very...meh..and I kept waiting for the shoe to drop, but it was more like a flip flop, not a steel toed boot. Does that make any sense? Lol

It just wasn't for me and the grammatical errors drove me nuts. sigh

This book is definitely suited for a younger crowd, I am 41 and while I can appreciate a good YA story, they are not at the top of my list. After reading the blurb and as bad as this sounds, I wanted Zar's darkness to be different or more than what it was.

The story of Loudon and Zar is what kept me interested after learning of her past, he was very mature acting for an eighteen year old. The blurb also mentions that Loudon is this big star athlete who is failing his classes, close to losing his

I received an ARC of Pierced Love from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This story by T.H. Snyder is a lot different from her other works, as this is a Young Adult book. It was a really great story, dealing with some real issues that happen in life today. We meet Zar right before her senior year of high school. Something has happened in her past, that makes her hate school, and the people there, and they treat her horribly.

After the first day of school she head out of town for a while

Have you ever felt out of place? Alone? Well meet Zar, she feels this way. Living day to day, just getting by. She is not your typical teenager, with loads of friends that she hangs out with every weekend, no but she does have a secret. A secret that even her family doesn't know about, a secret she deals with alone. She hides it, or at least tries to from everyone due to fear of the unknown.
Enter Loudon, not your boy next door, but a boy from a whole different school. A boy who has taken interes

This book definitely started out with a punch to get your attention and suck you in. It brought back some of my own issues from high school that I could really go without reliving. Although the story deals with several different issues, it felt like it was lacking in really telling us what Zar was going through. We saw a couple of scenes, how she felt about it, but we don't really know the extreme of what happened to her which left me fe

I absolutely love reading a sweet and romantic book. This was one of those books. A book where you just know that love is the key to everything, that it will save the couple and makes all things possible. I was completely lost in this story, wanting to learn more about Zar’s dark secret and what was holding her in her darkness. I was completely lost within the pages and didn’t want to stop reading until I had finished the story.

Zar was such an amazing girl. I couldn’t help but respect her and wa

I've read TH Synder's other novels that are in the romance genre and when I found out she was doing a YA novel, it piqued my interest. This novel touches on a sensitive subject of bullying and I give a huge BRAVO to the author for addressing and bringing it out in the open. I'm sure many teens or adults have been on the receiving end of this horrible subject and it refreshing to have an author address it and show you can work past it. There is light at the end of the tunnel where you feel like ...more

Pierced Love is one of those books that you can’t help but feel for the main character. High School teenagers facing the everyday challenge of bullying. As we all know, this subject has hit the news more and more everyday and it has gotten out of control. TH Snyder does a fantastic job portraying those struggles through the eyes of Zar.

Zar suffers from extreme anxiety attacks. Only, being a teenager and naive, her and her classmates don’t understand what is happening when her first attack hits

Wow! What a heart breaking and heart warming story. I don't think I have ever wanted to reach out and hug a fictional character as much as I did Zar. Poor thing was in a silent hell for so long and couldn't tell anyone. Suffering from bullies at her school and afraid to tell anyone. Having countless panic attacks and keeping them to herself so that the bullying wouldn't get worse. Trying to stay invisible until it is time to graduate and mo

A solid four stars for this sweet YA novel! Please note, this is young adult and not NA. The characters are in high school and while there are a few sexy moments, this is a clean read. No sex and minimal, if any cussing.

Zar is a broken young woman who is counting down the days until she can leave for college and start over. She is super smart but is shunned by her peers and suffers from depression.

This was a heartbreaking yet triumphant story, all rolled up into one. Dealing with some heavy issues that unfortunately happen in today’s society with teens, you get a glimpse into the life of one particular girl, and the struggles she goes through on a daily basis.

TH Snyder is a newer author and has already put out a two different types of books, she will be one to watch for with her interchangeable styles she is able to show. I personally don't love the YA book genre but being a fan of Snyder I decided to read it.

It was hard reading a story that illustrated a young girls harsh reality of bullying. The daily torture she put herself through in order to prepare for the mean words, hands on her and internal hate she had about why she was.

This was a cute YA read. We meet Zar and she is 18 about to start her senior year in HS. She has issues and has panic attacks. I know i kept on wondering what the hell happened to her?

Pierced Love is a great story about a young girl, bullied for years and nobody in her family has a clue.

The story is well paced, keeps you interested and has it's happy ending!

I can say Zar's underlying issues causing her panic attacks weren't as bad as I expected, not to take away from what she went through and how it affected her, honestly I'm glad it wasn't any worse.

This book really hit home with me for a lot of reasons. This book left me with a lot of emotions, sadness, heartbreak, sympathy, and happiness.

Zar had a secret for years and dealt with panic attacks. It amazed me how well she kept everything hidden away from everyone in her life. She was alone and had no one to turn to, until Loudon.

One meeting is all it took for them to fall in love. Little did they know, they would be together more than they realized when her brother is marrying his sister. I

An emotionally charged novel of a young woman who develops PTSD because of the death of her gran and five years of Bullying in high school.

Just this week I looked at the percentage of teenagers that are bullied and commit suicide in the USA. The statistics are horrifying and I wonder whether it will ever be eradicated?

It's concerning that not only are their copious amounts of young suicides but also far too many cases of PTSD. Again the onlookers either ignore or get involved in the bullying. P

Zar's story is written almost as a journal and you can't help feeling the emotions pouring out. Raw pain and glimmers of hope as she struggles to deal with the darkness that surrounds her. She wants to live in the light.

Her stress dealing with her emotions and her struggle with her peers was current and relatable. The subject of bullying was dealt with in a responsible and conscientious way .

This was a very well written story about a very real and difficult subject that unfortunately occurs much too often now in our society. This is a story about Zar and how she struggles with her last year in high school. She has been through a lot and can not wait for high school to be over so she can go and try to be "herself" again. She meets someone who makes her think that maybe things can change, but has to ask herself if that is something she wants and if she is ready.

I found this book a quick easy read. I felt for the main character, Zar, and what she was going through.. I think this book brings to light a pretty heavy issue that a lot of teens go through at school and that's dealing with bullying. Zar suffers from panic attacks and is trapped in this dark place which she wants to get out of but doesn't know how or where to start.. I like the lead male, Loudon, the person that brings about change for Zar. It takes a while to g

T.H. SnyderPierced LoveI don't want to give too much away in this review but I think this YA book-- certainly appropriate for 12+. This is the story of 18 year old Zar and how she struggles in light of events that occurred when she was in middle school. It is also the story of first love and unconditional support. This book is for anyone who has ever felt like an outcast; felt like they didn't belong but wanted to find their way back to the light. This book moved me and I loved it! A true winner ...more

This was a fantastic book. It shows how horrible the effects of bullying can be on anybody, not just a teenage girl, even years after it starts. When it continues, it only gets worse, and trying to dig yourself out of that depressed hole can seem like an impossible feat, especially when nobody else knows what's going on. I plan on letting my daughter read this, after skimming through and making sure she doesn't read any of the parts that aren't appropriate for an 11 year old, as I think it has a ...more

Let me just say I love T.H she is amazing!!. Zar is just like any teen girl she is dealing with issues that high school brings. Though Zar has a hard time dealing with these problems and goes through a lot of emotional trama. When Loudon and Zar are brought together by fate but is his love enough to save her from herself. Loudon is the sweet, charming and sexy knight in shinning armour and definitely one of my favorite leading men!! Loved this book hope to read more about Zar and Loudon.
