I had put off this book for a little while because the blurb didn't make me super interested. But I am glad that I finally read it in a moment of just really needing a book to read. There were some small issues but really it was a good book for me, a little rushed but not too bad. And it didn't leave me wanting to know what happens next.

Loved it!

This book deals with a lot of heavy trauma in the beginning. Sexual abuse, physical abuse, and suicide. It's not easy to read at times. However, there is healing and growth which I loved. It actually is the majority of the story at the end and nice to read. I wish there was more actually of these characters. I loved the twins and thought Bodhi was just precious. There are some steamy scenes as well. It mentions some mm, but there really isn't any. There is some talking about things but it's

Easy going.

TRIGGER WARNING! (Read story blurb and warnings before reading please)

NA. Contemporary Romance. Rh. 3 guys. Medium Burn. Mental Institution setting. HEA. Standalone. I like this story. The rh relationship was easy, which I think was really nice after the heart wrenching drama that occurred.

I enjoyed it

Trigger warning! This sorry broke my heart and slowly put it back. The MC is a strong girl to go through all she did and come out amazing. And the boys she falls for. Amazing! That twist with Silas I didn’t see coming, but loved it.

I'm sorry.... But what the heck did I just read?

I usually don't write reviews but I just had to on this one. Besides lack of punctuation, the story line was so far fetched that it was completely unbelievable. It was just not very good.

This was a story that touched delicate subjects but was handled with care and love and was very well written.

Conflicted - Spoilers!!!!!!!!

There were aspects that I really liked and some that frustrated the heck out of me. This author definitely has potential and this was a more positive than negative experience.

What I Liked:
The overall feeling of acceptance, love, choosing your family and hope was great. When I finished reading, I was left with happy feelings.
The good characters. There were a lot of wonderful characters in this book. Though I didn't feel I knew all of them well, they were all distinct

Interesting Read

This book has an interesting idea behind it's plot which I haven't seen done too many times and it was this that originally grabbed my attention. points definitely go to Sammy King for taking 'taboo' subjects and handling them in a sensitive manner. The book started off very well and I was thinking wow this book could be amazing and it certainly had the potential to be. Sammy king writes well and although I could often predict where the story was going I still enjoyed it one the

Interesting story

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and plot intriguing. There were humorous moments, frightening ones, and passionate times. There were some editing mistakes and sentences that were structured wrong or made no sense but otherwise it was a good story.

Nice story but kind of unbelievable *possible spoilers*

First off, I have a hard time with any book that has poor editing. I dont know if this is self published or not but the poor grammar and use of incorrect words made it hard to get through.

What I had the hardest time with though was I didnt believe the characters. The MC was abused, bullied and sexually assaulted in her past and suddenly she can stand up for herself and tell her story to complete strangers. I don't find that believable. The

What the f*** did I just read? This story is unbelievably ridiculous. It covers some tough topics which when done well can make a story but here it's glorified and sometimes laughable and then shoved into a reverse harem to make it mental illness and being institutionalized seem desirable.
Coupled with the grammatical errors and plot holes - well it appears some people don't mind.
After researching, I found numerous books by this author (with sub-par covers) which has me thinking she's a quantity

I’m not sure

I thought this would have been different. Bianca trying to commit suicide and ending up in a mental facility. Where she meets her guys who become more than just hers but family. I so wanted to like this but it was annoying to read a third person book! I finished it because I liked the characters I just feel like this was really poor executed!

Good book

I liked the storyline and the open dialogue between the characters. The subject matter was intense but was treated with respect. I look forward to reading more
