Together We Heal by Chelsea M. Cameron
Series: Fall and Rise #4
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Trish Grant is not a romantic. Okay, so she may read her share of romance novels, but that doesn’t mean she thinks that some fellow with a six pack is going to ride up on a horse and sweep her (literally) off her feet. Romance like that just isn’t for her. It belongs on the page.
Max Jackson noticed Trish at his cousin’s funeral, of all places. She was hard to miss with her citrus-colored hair, violet contacts and fiery attitude.
Trish was just as captivated by Max. He makes her laugh, which is rare, and it doesn’t hurt that he rocks blue hair and the most killer smirk that drives her crazy. Max is there for her during a rough time and even if she wanted to, she can’t shake him.
There are things about Trish that Max doesn’t know, and she’s not going to tell him. She hasn’t told anyone and doesn’t plan on it, thank you very much. But when Trish’s life is ripped apart by a dark piece of her past, will she let Max in? Or will she give up her potential fairytale to protect her already-scarred heart from further damage?
There were times when Trish got on my nerves a little bit in this book. She is really strong which I loved but girl is a little too hard on herself however I got the feeling that hardness when added with her past is what made her so strong. Her and Max are already in a relationship when the book starts which is a bit different but not in a bad way. I really love that we get alternating first person point of views (Trish and Max) because I feel that really helps me connect with the story even more. Breaking down Trish’s walls that she has built around herself isn’t easy at all.
Max was wonderful and I must say that any other guy would have walked away. He is smart, he works hard, and so supportive of Trish that he is the perfect book boyfriend! He really is and there were a couple of times where I was like “Is this guy for real?” Max is the type of guy that you want by your side to help you through the tough times. This book was difficult to read in that it deals with some subjects that may not be suitable for some. There is drug use, abuse, incest, etc that may be a trigger for some. However as horrible as those things are it is the hope and love that makes this story worth reading!
