I was given a ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I have been waiting for what feels like a VERY long time to have a new book by Dani. And she does NOT disappoint. It was beautiful and heart breaking all in one.

We meet Margot and the girl has a lot of issues. Everyone in her life has used and abused her and has left her this broken girl who allows people to treat her like shit. My heart broke for her. You cannot help but feel bad for her and fall in love with her. I love Dani's characters beca

I'm not sure where to begin with this book. From the very beginning I didn't want to put it down! It was one of those "carry everywhere, even in the bathroom" books. It was very different than what Author Danielle has done before but still stays true to her realistic, edgy writing style. You won't get cliches here! The setting was beautiful but I am a sucker for the beach ;) Learning about Margot and watching her take her independence back was a ride and I enjoyed every minute of it. There was a ...more

Couldn't get through the first chapter. The phrasing is off and it reads very awkwardly with misplaced commas and strange dialog. Synopsis sounds interesting but I just can't get through it.

Fantastic story about healing and learning to stand in your own.

I loved this book. Margot is the kind of character you want to shelter and protect, yet encourage and push because you know she's capable of SO MUCH more than she allows herself to believe.

Growing up going from foster home to foster home isn't the idyllic childhood. As soon as she was of age, she packed her meager belongings and hit the road. She meets Maddy, another lost soul and the two become friends and roommates. Then she meet

There are so many things I love about this book. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I loved the little things, like the honey packets, plain iced tea, the nicknames and also the NC Hammers rock!
What I loved about this book, was that it wasn't rushed, you get to know the characters and understand them.
This is a brilliant love story, this is about a girl with a broken past and finds someone who truly wants her and feels the need to help her.
I would love to read more about Derrek and Margot.

Margot is living with her best friend and has a great boyfriend. she is living a wonderful life or so she thinks. Once she meets Derrek and Justin she starts to question her life, but there is a secret she is carrying that could ruin everything for her. Will she play it safe or take a chance on love.

Hi! I am Danielle live in Western New York with my husband and two sons. I never knew I had a dream to become a writer until I started becoming obsessed with reading in the last few years. The obsession began with Twilight and then matured to Fifty Shades. While used to reading mainstream best sellers, found a new love for indie authors.

I love to do paintings related to the books I read and event
