until alex by J .Nathan
4 out of 5 stars
On the outside, Hayden is every girl's living breathing fantasy, brooding and devastatingly gorgeous. He spends his nights losing himself in alcohol and faceless girls, but it's all just a facade. An elaborate cover for the emotionless shell of a man he is. One who harbors too many secrets and destroys lives the way his was destroyed. It’s the reason he avoids relationships and keeps everyone at arm's length…
Alex’s life just shattered into a million pieces, leaving her with more grief than she knows what to do with and guilt so deep it’s destroyed the carefree girl she once was. Now she’s hundreds of miles from home, living with an aunt she doesn't know, finishing senior year at a college she’s never been to, and trying desperately to get through a single day without breaking down. She's never felt more alone in her life...
The trouble with Hayden is who he wants to be and who he is are in constant flux. And though he’d die before letting Alex learn the truth about him, he can’t be sure he's strong enough to let her in…or push her away. She’s the one person who just might see the real him
So where can I start with this book, I loved this story the author did a fantastic job bring the characters to life. This story follows Alex and Hayden who both have their own demon to bear. Alex is moving in with her aunty in the hopes of moving on and being able to forget about her past. Her parents have just died in the last month at the time of moving to her aunties. She is struggling with her feeling of fault where this is concerned .She feels like it is all her fault and she is having a hard time moving forward until she meets the sext man in 2c Hayden, he is the playboy who loves to bring home different girls every night just so he doesn't have to form a connection he has his own reasons for not wanting to get close. I really thought my heart was going to break at the start of this book. I wasn't sure what to expect the story line to develop into. I rode a very emotional rollercoaster with this story. I also found myself hating so of the characters. I thought Hayden was going to turn into the alpha male like most men do in books today but can I just say WOW! Loved ,loved, loved this Character A huge congrats to the author on a fantastic story .
