"Maggie Young has a family as American as apple pie, some great friends, and a solid B+ average. She does her homework and follows the rules. And longs for something more. Something exciting. Something she can feel passionate about. And what she gets is him. Clayton Reed is the new kid in town. Nobody knows anything about this darkly handsome boy, and he stays aloof, even though every girl in the school is vying for his attention. He seems determined to keep the whole world at arm's length.

Girl: Oh I am such a good girl. My friends and I have known each other forever. I run track and don't do anything I shouldn't do.

Boy: I'm new. I hate everything.

Girl: Oh he's so hot and dreamy. I must be a sarcastic wench when speaking with him.

Boy: Oh this sarcastic wench is amazing. How did I ever live my terrible life without her?

Girl: Track and friends are dumb. I love this hot boy with the dark secret.

Boy: I am bipolar and have borderline personality disorder. I also like drugs and yelling and being a giant ass.

Girl: Oh he needs me so much. I love him and would do anything for him.

Boy: I will die without you.

Girl: Oh, you're kind of scary now that you've tried to kill yourself. I'll call my parents for help.

Boy: You should forget about me now that I'm in the looney bin.

Girl: I'll never love again.

Author: I must write a sequel.

Let me start by saying this Author is one of my favorites so when I picked up this book I instantly thought it would be great. While others loved it, it just wasn't for me.

I made it to about 60% before I closed the book. I thought that in the beginning we needed to see the back and forth mood swings to establish a connection to the story, but after seeing the same thing over and over again, I just lost interest. I became bored and honestly I could've cared less what happened in the end.

Clay was insane and Maggie was even more crazy for putting up with it.... I can understand that everyone has their issues, but these issues were too much. There was no resolution... I mean she got caught in her room with him twice. For me once was enough. I just didn't feel like the story was going anywhere. It seemed long and lacked the spark that makes you want to devour it in one night. The huge issue for me was the fact that the plot was too redundant.

I wanted to love this book by A. Meredith Walters, but I didn't. At this time... I do not recommend it. ( )

It was ok but not more than that, I was quite frustrated at times that Maggie kept thinking she could heal someone with such an illness (who keeps hurting her and turns with the wind on mood swings) with her love time and time again. That said, it's something I haven't read about before so an interesting topic. ( )

4.5 stars.

Maggie is your average high school senior with a seemingly perfect life, and it's boring her to death. That is until she literally bumps into Clayton Reed, the new guy in school.

"What the hell?" The guy growled, stooping to pick up the items he had dropped in our bodily fender bender...

"Oh I'm sorry, did I miss the stop sign." I fired back...

It's safe to say their first meeting was less than pleasant. Clay is all anyone can talk about, he's the hot and mysterious loner that never really talks except to trade insults with Maggie. When he finally does acknowledge other people he's usually moody and rude. For some reason Maggie is still drawn to him. Their odd friendship quickly changes when they fall hard and fast for each other, to the dismay of her family and friends.

"And Clay, for all of his flaws was my future. Whether my family and friends agreed or not.-Maggie

Maggie's relationship with Clay becomes her world. She repeatedly disobeys her parents rules, she stops hanging out with her friends, and misses cross country practice constantly, jeopardizing her hopes of a scholarship. She only wants Clay.

"Was all first love this intense?" - Maggie

Maggie tries her best to penetrate the walls that Clay has built around himself in order to get to the bottom of his mood swings. One minute he's fun, sweet and loving, next he's quiet and recluse, then he's angry and mean.

"...if I loved him, I had to love all parts of who he was."- Maggie

We start to learn that Clay is suffering from mental illness, (but I don't think that's a surprise to anyone...) Maggie is the only person in Clay's life that he feels he can trust with his secrets. He starts to become dependent on his time with her to keep him stable and less on his medication.

"This is all I need, Mags. Just you and me, together.- Clay"

Needless to say, things start to spiral down hill fast! Clay's behavior becomes erratic and unpredictable. He's self destructive and scaring the crap out of Maggie!

"No you didn't..." "Are you fucking crazy!"-Maggie
"Yes, Maggie. I am FUCKING CRAZY!-Clay priceless!

Maggie is in waaay over her head and she knows it!

"Clay, I love you. I love every single part of you. I need you to hold it together. Do it for me if not for yourself."

Maggie feels like she's losing him and she is terrified.

"I couldn't handle sitting by and watching the boy I love slowly slip away into the darkness of his mind.

Can she help him and more importantly will he let her?

How do I really feel?
This was a difficult subject. How do you love someone with a mental illness? It's clear that Clay didn't mean to behave the way he did, it's part of his sickness. Maggie knows that but it doesn't make his actions hurt any less. There were times that I wanted to hug Clay and tell him everything was going to be OK. Other times I wanted to choke him out! This is a hard road for them. I really can't wait for the sequel! ( )

WOOOOOOOW

Cuando empecé a leer este libro en absoluto me esperaba lo que me terminé encontrando .

Empieza como todas las novelas románticas de hoy en día ...

La chica conoce al chico más hermoso y misterioso y oso del colegio y hace lo posible por hacerse amiga . El chico , aunque reacio al principio , acepta este acercamiento y se deja llevar .

Hasta ahí lo normal .

Tras semanas de idas y vueltas en la amistad , crece la atracción entre ambos . Tanto que tras un par de intentos fallidos de manoseos y besos , ya no pueden seguir negandose que quieren algo más y deciden pasar a lo que sigue .

Seguimos bien? Lo mismo de siempre no?


La suerte está echada , Diego .

..............................

Este es el momento del libro en que yo pienso : "Bien ,que tengan relaciones y que salga el drama patético que seguro debe tener el pibe así ya me voy a dormir ... que lo hagan rápido que mañana me tengo que despertar temprano ."

Y ahí me equivoqué . Porque , obviamente , cuando un pibe con problemas es DE VERDAD un pibe con PROBLEMAS , nada puede salir bien . (O nada puede malir sal ?... si , es lo primero que sale mal)

No quiero arruinarles la sorpresa así que opto por no contar cual es el GRAN PROBLEMA que ataca a CLAY y lo convierte en un TRAVIS MADDOX pero sin idealizarlo ni excusarlo con falsos romanticismos ni flores . Este libro está más cerca de novelas como [b:Willow|4570768|Willow|Julia Hoban|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1393127347s/4570768.jpg|4620119] que de delirios eróticos como [b:Beautiful Disaster|11505797|Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)|Jamie McGuire|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358259032s/11505797.jpg|16441531] .

Trata sobre relaciones abusivas , de esas que aislan a las personas y las convierten en esclavos de la persona que aman , siempre jugando con la culpa y la compasión ; llegando hasta el punto de que quien está disminuido (quien es realmente la víctima) se contagia de la locura y termina haciendo oidos sordos a la gente que realmente se preocupa por ellos y priorizando a quien le hace mal .

Ufff , pausa para respirar ....


El acierto con el que está tratado el tema me sorprendió . No me esperaba semejante seriedad y realismo en una novela NEW ADULT y el final que le dio la autora era el único posible y aceptable .

Más allá de la escritura mediocre y alguna que otra cosirijilla molesta en los monólogos internos de la protagonista , es una novela muy recomendable a pesar de lo angustiante y difícil . Cualquier persona que haya sufrido lo que sufre Clay o haya vivido un noviazgo dependiente como al que es sometida Maggie , va a disfrutar mucho esta historia de desamor y desencuentro .

Me intriga saber de que tratará la continuación .
