Title: Letting Go
Author: Molly McAdams
Publication Date: November 04th, 2014
Synopsis: Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen and believed they’d be together forever. But three days before their wedding, the twenty-year-old groom-to-be suddenly died from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. If it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger, Grey never would have made it through those last two years to graduation. He’s the only one who understands her pain, the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered. Jagger swears he’ll always be there for her, but no one has ever been able to hold on to him. He’s not the kind of guy to settle down.
It’s true that no one has ever been able to keep Jagger—because he’s only ever belonged to Grey. While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, he’s the only one who sees her strength. Yet as much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. Still they can’t deny the heat that is growing between them—a passion that soon becomes too hot to handle. But admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?
Review: I tried really hard to finish this book, I really liked Ben, he’s seriously a great male MC but he deserves so much better than Grey. She drove me nuts the entire time I was reading this book and the amount of times I rolled my eyes at her was ridiculous. I finally had enough and stopped reading when she flipped her shit at finding out that he was in love with her before her fiance died, like it wasn’t obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes. It was seriously one of the most childish things I have read a character do. And yes I get she was mourning her dead fiance, and that people mourn at different paces (I get this I just lost my sister-in-law) but damn girl it’s been a year, you want to have a relationship with this guy you’ve been friends with forever and you’re going to throw hissy fits over irrelevant things? Nope nope nope. Bye Felicia.
Recommendation: No, this only got 2 stars because of Ben
