4.5 beautiful, bleeding stars!

After few first numb chapters the story did a good number on me, changing from a little too fast and shallow to something perfectly heartbreaking! Patch Up is a perfect mix of everything I love in new adult Stephanie Witter made phenomenal job at creating another gut wrenching story about fighting with depression and twist and turns of life that ho ...more

Early on we learn, the asshat ex Sean, abused her the duration of their 3 year relationship. Physically, mentally, ...more
Skye (the main character) is fragile but has a great inner strength. Duke (the "hero" though that isn't really the best term) is pretty swoon worthy and he also has a great depth with many different layers.
The romance is slow-building and that makes it feel more realistic. The storyline is strong and holds its own without the romance and then the roman ...more

Thank you for giving it a try!

I was so excited to receive this ARC! When I say excited, it's the understatement of the year! It's so fulfilling to receive an ARC of a book you want to read. It's nice to have a chance at something you want so badly.
On with the Review:
One subject that gets my panties in a twist is abusive relationships or abusive anything for that matter. On that note, I started this book with that in mind sin...more
At the start, Skye is fragile, broken, and afraid of the world after going through a trauma that lasted for years. But, she is unknowingly strong, her inner strength enabling her to function at college, barely. Every day, she works to overc ...more
From the very beginning when she sent me Chapter 1 i was completely hooked on Skye's (main character) story and i needed to know her secret and why she was so broken.
I was almost begging Stephanie for the next chapter and the next chapter!
Then there is Duke. *sighs* He could see Skye's pain but also had issues of his own to deal with, he seriously irritated me on more than one occassion to the point of wanting to kick his ...more
I had the pleasure and honor of beta reading Patch Up for Stephanie Witter.
It is extremely admirable for anyone talented enough to be a storyteller to put in the energy, time, frustration, sweat, tears – and, yes, love, required to write a book and then have the courage to share it with the world. However, in Stephanie’s case, doing this is an even more amazing feat when you consider that she’s decided to write Skye’s story in a language other than her nativ ...more
I'm so, so, so happy that I signed up for this Blog Tour! I hadn't heard of this book until the author asked me if I would like to join the Blog Tour and when I saw the cover I instantly knew I wanted to read the story behind it! This book was a beautiful story about broken characters trying to come to terms with things that have happened to them and finding the strength to move on! I connec ...more

4.75/5 loved it, loved it. I rarely give that high of a rating for books.
I was not expecting this book to suck me in and spit me out towards the end. We learn about Skye (lol @ the Star Wars reference) and her abusive relationship with her ex. Skye clearly has sym ...more
Skye has been with her abusive boyfriend for 3 years till she followed him for their first year of college and yet he dumps her a week after because his words are that she's:
"Idiot. Dependent. Whore. Ridiculous. Ugly. Boring. A nobody. Nobody wants you. Nobody would miss you. Not sexy."
Physically and mentally broken, Skye avoids everyone and hides behind her frizzy hair and oversized clothes.
On her psychology class, she met one of the ...more
I finished reading this book in a day. I just couldn't put it down and no matter how much my body wanted to sleep, my brain just wouldn't switch off and kept convincing me that I had to read just one more chapter.
Emotional roller coaster doesn't even come close to describing this book, and I found myself becoming attached to Skye and Duke as they tried to break down each other's barriers. I loved the way the pieces slowly came together, and felt such compassion for both S ...more
This story is about Skye and Duke. Skye moved with her boyfriend to his college, only to be dumped. And Duke is her psychology lecturer's TA. Now, Skye is in a bad state. She's been in an abusive relationship and she's currently portraying the symptoms. She doesn't liked being touched, she keeps to herself, she dresses in baggy clothes. Duke sees her in class, and sees a bit of himself in her, and decides to he ...more
I wanted to read this book since I saw the cover and read the blurb. The cover is gorgeous (and I think it has a lot to do with the story) and the blurb is very ineteresting. It seemed like my type of book.
Oh my! I am speechless and amazed! “Patch up” is a book that had blown me away! WOW!
I seriously didn’t epect to like it so much. Nor did it expect it to be such an amazine book. “Patch up” pleasently surprised me and o ...more
My Review :
This is heartbreaking, painful story about two broken souls. The story takes places in college where Skye met Duke, ones of the TA in her in psychology's class.
But Skye can't stand to be touch by anyone and tried to be invisible to the world, her boyfriend broke up with her months ago.She hide a big secret a ...more
You know how sometimes you come across a book that just takes you completely by surprise? The way you connect to the characters… the feelings the story itself brings out… It lingers in your brain long after you’ve finished reading. It just stays with you. Well that is exactly what happened with me after reading this book!
Patch Up is a beautifully written intense story that will introduce you to a very brave young woman whose spirit has been utterly broken, no… shredd ...more
What I liked
Absolutely everything! As you can see there isn't a 'What I disliked' section in this post. Before I begin, I'd like to reiterate that this book deals with a sensitive topic. So be prepared, because as I told the author Stephanie before I sent a full review - I haven't read a book that has made my cry like Patch Up did in a while!
To start, I loved the college setting. Specifically that it took pla ...more
The fact they broke up doesnt stop Sean from beating Skye. This guy is a real douche. He terrorizes her and she takes it. No one knows the things hes done to her she has protected him and kept thi ...more

The characters are well defined and multidimensional. The reader immediately deciphers that Skye was involved in an abusive relationship with ...more
