Pretentious. Arrogant. Condescending. Cruel.
All words I'd used to label him. Exactly what I’d always believed he was. All that changed one spring morning when I realized I didn't know the man behind the facade at all.

Angry. Desperate. Broken. Mine.
All words I'd use to define him after I interfered. Once our eyes locked, I was all in. There was no turning back. He t

‘You don't get to keep walking away from me… At some point, I'm going to stop chasing you.’ In truth, I will stop chasing him, but I doubt I'll ever stop caring for him. There's only so much I can take, though.

I love you to the point of pain, Evie. My chest hurts when you're not near.

You're the most important person in my life, Evie. I was going to tell you right away, but the moment I saw you, all thought left my mind.

The reviews of this book were very mixed so I wasn't sure what I was setting myself up for in choosing this. Once I began there were no mixed emotions coming from this reader!. I was deeply invested in the two major characters from the beginning Loved the dual POV, the honesty in their dialogue & of course the heart-wrenching emotion.

A very raw and unusal story... There were moments when I loved it and moments when I felt it was to over the top. The subjects that are the focus of this plot a serious and the way they were handeld felt good. I as a rader felt that it was good to show "stuff" can happen to anybody and at any time. There is no guarantee just because you are of a certain gender and a have a certain position in society that it will not happen to you.

I really liked the characters and the plot but in the end I could

I could not step away from this book. From the moment I read the Prologue, I knew it was going to be emotional but I wasn’t prepared for the depths of emotions this story would evoke. The author did an outstanding job of conveying the emotional turmoil of the characters and capturing their brokenness. But was also in this story is strength.

The amount of strength and grace Eve’s character had was near saint levels. She was the true savior in this

I felt like this book was on fast forward. I saw the entire story going way too fast, like snapshots of time and couldn't get into any of the character's lives. I did not enjoy this author's writing style at all. There was so much emotion to dive into, yet it wasn't taken advantage of at all. There was a ton of telling, not showing.
★ Belle The Bibliophile ★
This book is a rollercoaster of messes. It's not I didn't enjoy it but there's so many things going on and the pacing was just too fast for me.

There were certain issues that I felt needed to be addressed but they're brushed off because of new revelation after another.

It's hard to explain but I feel like with all that's going on, it needs to be smoothed out a little bit.
Mediocre writing.
The heroine would go to the hero the minute he showed her any attention.
Great premise, poor execution.

5 stars

I have to say is wow. This book is more than just finding someone you connect to you in many ways. It doesn't happen overnight. You might not even like the person at first, but when that person becomes your life line, you learn that maybe it was always that person at the beginning. This book starts with this boy that is a total jerk to this girl. Just being a plain old bully, but the thing is, even when the bullying is going on there is

Growing up Eve was tormented by Cy. He gave her such a hard time during high school like a typical jerk. As time goes on we discover the reasons why he treated her the way he did. When you find out why your heart will break. I did like Cy and Eve as couple but they moved just a little too fast for my liking. I get that they have a history and she works for his mother but I wanted more of a slower burn with the couple. Despite that minor issue I really liked how they balanced each other out. They

Jesus this book had me feeling all different kinds of emotions, first anger towards Cy then sadness, then happiness. I was an emotional mess reading this book literally from start to finish the book had me in a blubbering mess, the topics are so close to home for me so I could relate to Cy on a personal level but even if that wasn’t the case I know this would have still been an emotional read nonetheless. The author sure knows how to tug at our heartstrings😢💔

This has been one of the most emotional books I have read this year. From beginning to end this book had my emotions on rollercoasters edge. And to me it was an ugly cry so you will need some tissues. But that just means this book has such an impact on me that in touched something deep inside me. But living something similar will do that to you. But I also love this book because it's one that brings to light how some things are done. How someone living in that situation are made to feel.

This book was a total roller coaster of complex characters and many twists and turns. I did have a hard time getting into it at first and lingered on the first few chapters for days before I really found the focus to really get into it. Once I did, it took off. Loved the two main characters Eve and Cy. They have known each other since childhood and come together later in a way they just really couldn't have Forseen. There is a dark and twisted path and reason Cy picked on her in school. There ar ...more

Deep- is the first word that comes to mind with this book. I literally went through a roller coaster of emotions throughout this book along with the characters. I was hooked from the prologue and could not put this down, it was read in one sitting. I love how it's not you average insta love kind of story, it feels real, raw, and deep. It was relatable and felt real. Overall I liked it a lot and really really hope we get to see more of Parker. Maybe a book for him too? Pleaseeeee?

I have read a lot of Michelle's book and I have to say this book is different than her other books. The book took me by surprise!! My feelings went from angry, to crying, to understanding. I really felt what Eve went through as well as Cy.

From the prologue and the first few chapters I didn't have the best opinion of Cy. I wanted to reach into my kindle and put my hands around his neck. I wanted to hurt him for being such a$$ t

Incredibly intense and deeply moving. Struggles we all fear in the dark of night. A deep love and forgiveness we all crave. This is another stellar story told with compassion and love by Michelle Dare.

Where I End was a great read. In the beginning I couldn’t help, but like Cy; even if he was a bully. He just drew me in. I mean there had to be a reason for his cruelty. Right? Now, Eve didn’t fit in with the rich crowed, but I liked that she held her ground. Fast forward a few years and these two are completely different. Eve is sweet and big hearted and now working for Cy’s mother, but when she over hears an argument, she couldn’t believe her ears. Or the sight before her. Instead of running a ...more

This book is hauntingly beautiful with some serious triggers but amazing and well done. Truly this was an emotional ride and all that Cy went through broke my heart. Evie was a very well written strong character who I could only hope to hold one ounce of her strength in real life. The author did an amazing job writing through these trigger and dark issues without minimizing what people would go through.

I struggled a lot with this book. The plot line was refreshing, I've read plenty of books about abuse, but not many on that point of view, so it was diffeRent than what I usually read. The problem was the story was told too fast. There wasn't time for me to relate to the characters or the story.

There was so much emotion to be explored in a story like this, but unfortunately I think the author missed it. The writing wasn't bad, but it also wasn'

“You’re my past, present, and future. Where I end, you begin.”

Where I End is one of those books I have had to sit down and think about before writing a review…it was so emotional! It was painful, at times very hard to read, yet it was also a beautiful portrayal of love, acceptance, and full of hope.

When I read the synopsis, I had no idea what an emotional journey Michelle Dare would take me on. Cy and Evie have known each other for a long time. To say they had complicated feelings f

He was Mr. Popular and I was his target. I don't know why he picked on me through out high school and made me the butt of his jokes. He was mean, cruel and I hated him. Well, I tried to hate him but part of me felt something for him, I mean he is handsome. I was at war with myself, having mixed emotions about a guy who is so swoonworthy but so mean to me. Why?

One day, I interfered and now I am in the middle. I learned something about him then and it changed everything. I saw him in a differen

"You're like a magnet, Cy. People can't help but be drawn to you." “People or you?” I had to ask. I need to know.

Michelle Dare is probably one of my favorite indie writers, she writes I read, that simple. There is something in her writing that simply conveys what her characters are feeling, and whenever I start reading one of her books I don't want it to end.

"Where I End" had the same effect on me, I get to love the characters and feel sympathy for them. A special characteristic of Mich

I am seriously speechless after reading this book. It truly had me captivated from start to finish. When I first started reading the book, it seemed like it would be a standard jerk from school falls in love with the girl he torments. Yes…..that does happen. But Cy’s story was something I’m not used to seeing from the male lead character. My heart truly broke for him and all the suffering he endured over the years. Doesn’t excuse how he treated Eve during high school, but it makes you understand ...more

I give Where I End by Michelle Dare five stars. Where I end is a standalone adult romance book. Eve was bullied in her High School years by a classmate who she always saw as being cruel and arrogant. Eve always believe this classmate was really like this until one fateful morning she got a glimpse into the real man and it was all just a façade. When Eve saw the real man, she realized that he was not only broken and angry but that he was hers and all it took was the lock of their eyes. No

Where do I begin with this book? Seems my black heart is melting as Michelle Dare is now included in my elite group of authors making me cry. This book had me right from the start, as I could see between the lines with Eve and Cy. But what Dare did with this story, my heart broke, and melted at the same time. Dare takes a topic, actually two, and puts them in the forefront of how someone would heal and deal with being put into that situation.

Cy was rich, popular and a bully in high school. He had his group of friends that were as arrogant/entitled as he was and a trail of women that were at his beck and call. However, he loved to torment a girl in school named Eve. He was constantly being mean to her as well as embarrassing her. Did he really des
