Review:

3,75 🌟 (almost four)

Secrets in our Scars is a good book, her author is more than good. I like her writing style, the way she describes feelings and stories. However the plot wasn’t one I usually read. I got over that phase a couple years ago and reading about it was like, damn it’s good but not what I expected.

Let me explain:

Daisy: Typical young girl, innocent, inexperienced, introvert. Trauma from past experiences (even her name designates delicacy). She’s not wrong, I’m a feminist and I accept every kind of woman and people, even though I prefer reading about a more determined woman that doesn’t need a man to become something or to grow up. I’m not trying to devaluaste men, they can help us grow but they can’t be the principal factor that has to be form our inside ( and that goes for everybody).

Roy: Rich man, bulky, dark past, powerful. (Nothing more to add). He was enjoyable, I liked him.

The story is well developed and well written but the characters weren’t too attractive for me, I’m tired of this stereotypes. In general is a good story. Both characters have chemistry and it gains momentum during the whole book. Also, there is not one midterm but two or three and that’s intriguing and makes you want to keep reading.

There’s drama and I love a good drama, my biggest problem was female character personality or way of acting and how she seem weaker than how she probably is.

Side characters are good. FC’s best friend adds the touch of humor needed. The aunts are so motherly, except for the fast trust in a stranger that’s showing a special interest in their nephew. You have MC’s people, especially Proctor, a surprising addition.

Ps.: Sorry for putting all my feminist thoughts in here, I’m no one to say how people has to be or act or whatever.

Overall, it’s a good book. I recommend it. From time to time we have to get out of our comfort zone.
