Vi and Penelope never fail me! I always enjoy their books and when it’s over I’m back to ‘what do I read now?’

That twist...literally made me gasp. Good job!

Fantastic read

I followed the case when it was happening in real time and after he died I didn’t think it about again. I watched the Netflix docuseries and decided to reinvigorate my mind with the issues that surround football. With the players, management etc. I also felt that the docuseries was more of a sensational piece rather than being informative. So, I came across Aaron’s brother’s book and decided not to read it because let’s be honest, the guy didn’t even show up for his brother’s trial so *shrug* I didn’t want to support him financially. This book had better reviews and was not only informative but gave a true look into what Aaron was like in his time of knowing Jose Baez. I’m conflicted. My mindset used to be it’s a or b. But knowing all the players who had CTE and what it does to your brain... made me feel like football truly is just a business. There’s nothing else to it. The players aren’t cared for once they leave the game. They are replaceable. Aaron should have had more support and the right people around him at all times however... would that have even mattered. It’s worth the read and some may say he shouldn’t be, but Baez humanizes Aaron in a way the media otherwise destroyed.

Great novel

Initially when I began this audiobook (I listen to audiobooks while working) I couldn’t get attached to it due to grace’s voice. (No disrespect) however, I love anything LJ Shen writes, so I have it another go and along with the story, I appreciated Grace’s voice as Jude.

As usual, LJ knocked it out of the park with this one and I became enthralled with both characters. I adored Jude for standing her ground on so many things and celian... well... I once dated someone like celian. attitude, personality and the way he guarded his heart.

Those types of men may come across as assholes and granted they are but once you get their love... that’s it. They’re yours.

As long as she continues to write her novels the way she does, I will always be a reader/listener.

Beautiful novel about second chances

I really enjoyed this novel. Made me cry a few times too and that is hard to do.
