hahhahaha it's the 2nd for me :) i might write a review but it has zero plot and reads like a fanfic

it doesn't have any plot at all and the last 150 pages or so were just pure fanfiction


Gabrielle Omgggg nooo stoppp my heart is breaking I think she should’ve stopped after ignite me

i think if you love the series then you'll be fine. i still love the characters and the writing, i just couldn't really overlook how nothing happened and the romance was just - for lack of a better word - fanfiction


Gabrielle The end of restore me seemed like there was a big set up for the plot so that’s shocking a

yeah the ending is addressed in the first couple of chapters then we move on straight away


Gabrielle It’s dismissed just like that??? It was a HUGE reveal

you'll understand when they explain it hahahaahaha


Gabrielle Okay ahhh I can’t wait was Warner as swoons as ever in this book despite the fan fic?

uhhhhh depends cause i liked the flashbacks but i found the present-warner pretty cringy


Gabrielle Nooo ugh I’ve always loved him I hope I don’t find him cringy:( you are so lucky you got it early


Kallie (The Book Binge) Nooooooo! I cannot believe Tahereh Mafi has ruined such a good series! Makes me so mad. I had little hope for defy me after restore me was such an awful fanfic mess. Thank you for the spoilers. I guess I am really done with the series. It will forever be a trilogy for me.

I see why you think restore me was a fan fic mess it barely felt like an extension of the series it felt unnecessary but i really loved it for what it was we got to see warner and his raw scene with his panic attack and we got to see juliette have a breakdown and cut her hair it had some raw moments but it was unnecessary i am scared for defy me


message 16: by Jennifer (new) - added it

Jennifer I read the spoilers and I'm glad I decided not to read this crap. For me, the series is only the first three books!


mahana @Jennifer I wish I had too because now I wouldn’t dislike the characters. They used to be my favourite but after Restore Me and this I’m just not feeling the same way


mahana @ Kallie I liked Restore Me when I read it (I don’t know that I look back on it) but I couldn’t really overlook how this one was just straight up fanfiction???? Especially with the last part of my spoilers like I’ll read over that specific scene and find it so awkward and cringeworthy


Gabrielle i finished defy me and... a lot of it does feel like fan fiction i am so disappointed


mahana @ Gabrielle No :(((( I thought you’d end up loving it

I liked it in terms of like seeing all my fav characters again but all the twists were unncessary like when someone is dead they are dead you know? like stay dead and then the end with warners bday like i thought it was out of place like it belonged as a scene in the last book or something and i dont know i just ughhh i love juliette still but i felt a kind of disconnect with the characters and the shower sex scene i felt like they were different people like i dont know and their love kind of turned into like a love sick puppy love instead of that heart stopping intense life altering love you know?
