I used to think everything was black and white, truth or lie, easy or hard, that if I could just escape my strict, overbearing, abusive father, my life would be perfect. But since I’ve found a reason to risk his wrath and leave, to help a friend in need, I’ve come to realize everything I thought I knew is wrong.
Friends have their own agenda, honesty comes with a dosage of lie, easy doesn’t even exist, keeping secrets sucks, and love...love is the most painful thing of all.
Maybe if Quinn Hamilton hadn’t asked me to skip classes for the day and help him pick out an engagement ring for my best friend, I wouldn’t have fallen for him so completely on that sunny Tuesday afternoon and I wouldn’t feel so conflicted. But I did, and I can’t take it back, no matter how hard I try. So I have to deal with the fact that even I’m not as good, or honest, or caring as I’d always thought I was, and no matter what I do next, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me.
Quinn is such a sweetheart. I'm surprised this series doesn't have that many ratings. Each one of their stories are so wonderful. And they sound like such a great group of friends. I can't get enough of them!!
With Every Heartbeat, I Loved It!
Quinn and Zoey are very much like: they're both introverts, a little naive, and share a very similar past. Also, not to mention they both crave a liking towards each other but know it's not even possible to make something happen out of it. But once they are given an unexpected chance everything seems to fall into place how it SHOULD be. Linda Kage finishes this fourth book of the Forbidden series with a beautiful ending of how two people are meant to be for each and discover what it really feels to love someone. Through heartbreak, guilt, and fear they both learn that it's time to stop cowering away and fight for what they want. Big thumbs up to Linda Kage for, again, blowing my mind. 😁
