Review: The Things you kiss goodbye by Leslie Connor



Goodreads Description:
Bettina Vasilis can hardly believe it when basketball star Brady Cullen asks her out, and she just about faints when her strict father actually approves of him.

But when school starts up again, Brady changes. What happened to the sweet boy she fell in love with? Then she meets a smoldering guy in his twenties, and this “cowboy” is everything Brady is not—gentle, caring, and interested in getting to know the real Bettina.

Bettina knows that breaking up with Brady would mean giving up her freedom—and that it would be inappropriate for anything to happen between her and Cowboy. Still, she can’t help that she longs for the scent of his auto shop whenever she’s anywhere else.

When tragedy strikes, Bettina must tell her family the truth—and kiss goodbye the things she thought she knew about herself and the men in her life.

Leslie Connor has written a lyrical, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful story about family, romance, and the immense power of love.


I went into this book with a "MEH" type feeling, not having high expectations for it but not have low ones either you know?
Now, im always bothered by cheating in books, and even more so in real life xD
There is something about reading it that makes me fifty shades of uncomfortable with the characters, but I understand why it happened
Wait is this considered a spoiler?
Anyways, Brady turned into such a douche face!
Okay I should really say the book wasnt the light reading that I kinda thought it would be due to the emotional abuse and stuff, it was hard.
Her struggles with the school seemed really harsh but at the same time so read. Its things that people DO and HAVE gone through in high school , not all but... Well... Maybe...

Recommend it?

mmm sure, I guess... yeah
