Second chances are for suckers.

Micah’s heard that expression before. With his first year of college in the books, catching his girlfriend cheating on him — again — he learns that lesson firsthand. The girl he thought could’ve been his high school sweetheart, turns out to be nothing more than a liar, completely destroying his trust.

No one has ever called Veronica fa

This is fourth in a series and the main characters are present and active in the previous books (including Micah's initial relationship with Lana). I recommend reading in order, though consider seriously if you want to continue with this one.

I've made it through a quarter of the story, but I can't bring myself to continue. Most of that is Veronica and anticipation of future events. Veronica could be a lovely character, but her body insecurity is killing me.

I can understand insecurity about your

Hero had a GF in high school who cheated on him twice. He has issues about that experience so when he meets heroine (who has her own issues of insecurity because she is overweight & thinks not as beautiful as him or his ex) it takes a lot for him to learn to trust again - especially when he finds out (view spoiler).

So this is one of those young college romance stories that we read all the time. Nothing new here. To be honest, this

That was really intense, the last book I felt this way about was ( one breath apart by Katie Mcgarry ) and it was as intense as this one, this deals with two VERY heavy issues and baggages that but it was approached in a very sweet way
I don't know if it has a positive message but the book did make me think a lot and made me uncomfortable many times, in a good way .. I still believe the relationship could be better but it was nice and really INTENSE, if you are not in the mood for drama avoid th

I received ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Through the Layers is a new adult, coming of age, contemporary novel that follows the story of Veronica, a college student struggling through body issues, and Micah, her artsy, ambitious, much HOTTER classmate.

It's a sweet read that takes its slow time burning through, with a mostly steady pace where no severe drama actually takes place until near the end of it, but the book mostly deals with everyday issues like Veronica's insecurities and Mica

Definitely had to go through a lot of layers

I will say I’m giving this book a 3 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️ because one, Veronica was very annoying and always whining about her weight and her insecurities about herself. I clearly understand what she’s feeling but seriously through the entire book? Like sheesh! To top it off her own best friend didn’t have boobies or was thicker as she. She was never insecure at all. A lot of times those who are thicker think women/girls

Just no

Veronica was just so hard to read. No one wants to be around someone who is that insecure, much less read about them. Others may have enjoyed their story, but I just couldn't get past my annoyance with her.

She shuts down and doesn't talk to her boyfriend. What's he supposed to think? That you still want him and not someone else? Because pushing him away isn't going to convey that message. The whole tshirt thing is dumb. And the brothers being macho males, really? All those were just so c

Great read!

This was my favorite book of the entire series. I liked it because I like the other books they actually had a relationship throughout the entire book. In others in the series they don’t actuality get together until the very end and then it’s over. However I didn’t like how she was always second guessing everything, she was In her head to much and some of the things she thought was ridiculous!

Keeps getting better

I have to say... each book in the series keeps getting better. I loved that this one started out with the relationship and we got to follow it through the story rather than have to wait until the end. This title deals with a lot of real, common issues and insecurities. I think a lot of people will find it relatable in that way.

Words cannot express the love I have for this storyline. I saw so many aspects of my life in this story. As if the idea for this story was taken from a chapter of two of my life. Body image insecurities are a daily struggle and even more so when you feel unworthy of the perfection you are in a relationship with. Perfect telling! ♥♥♥

Trust issues meet body image issues

Can people get over the pain others inflict on them? Can people get past the thoughts that bury themselves in doubt? I don’t know if this story answers those questions. But the struggle to come to terms with these issues and still find a way to love one another is heart warming.

This book sums of the reason of why I hate to read books about bigger women. The whole book is about how fat they are, how no one will love them, how gross they are and no way could the guy actually want to be with them because they are fat. Seriously Vero was so annoying. 2 stars only because the prank on Taylor was funny

[1.25 star] the author just keep repeating the same shit throughout the book. wanted to give up halfway but stick to it. either way i was dissapointed, the hero's ex finally give up all of a sudden, how i wish the hero will just give her 2 tight slaps.

I love Micah! Truly I do but he just didn’t grovel enough for me (after what he said.....I needed him to crawl and beg)

This is still a great read...and something I will no doubt have on my re-read list but it’ll only get 3.5 stars due to the lack of a much needed grovel!

It was extremely difficult to get through this. Veronica is a hard character to identify with because of her insecurities. We all have insecurities, yes. But when it's all you're about it's annoying. We aren't only our insecurities. We have good qualities as well, I just never saw hers.

I really liked this book but i felt it had too much adult content for me. No nothing went into detail, but still, it went from cute to just a tad bit dirty.

Pretty good, but Veronica came off as
Super annoying to me. I had a hard time connecting with her character and family.
