Review:Waiting on My Reason by Devon Ashley.
Everything happens for a reason. I just wish I knew the why behind mine.
Five years ago, graduation wasn’t what it was supposed to be. Publicly humiliated, Melanie was more than happy to kiss off her high school sweetheart. But in doing so, she lost more than just her boyfriend, she lost the only other guy she truly cared for – his best friend, Shane.
Shane loathed the idea of returning to his small hometown. He just wanted to get in, help his best friend manage a legal matter, and get the hell back out again. But he wasn’t expecting to run into the one girl who got away, who always held a piece of his heart despite the animosity that lingered. Melanie could’ve been the one, but after everything that happened, trust was a serious issue.
She just wanted to do right by her son. He just wanted to do right by his best friend. And just when they thought they could find the strength to forgive the sins of the past, more secrets and lies bubble to the surface, threatening to push them irrevocably apart.
When i read the description of this book i said to myself that i had to read this one ,cause it sounded so good,and of course,because this is not the first book written by Devon Ashley that i wanted to read.So,when i received the arc for the review i was very,very,very happy.
I started reading the book ASAP and i can admit that i liked it from the first page,even if there it wasn't much.But my point is that once i started reading it i couldn't stop.This is not the first time when something like this happens to me..So.
This book is about two people who from the beginning ,from the first day they met,lied about their feelings,but after a few years everything changes.
All Melanie wanted was to be left alone ,so she could take care of her son and forget about the past.About the lies and all the bad things.I liked her attitude and her way of letting Shane know that she wasn't interested.That was at fist,what's next is sooo much better.
Even if she had to work so much and spend less time with her son,all she wanted for him was the best and she tried to protect him every single day.That's what is important.
But everything turnes upside down when her ex's best friend comes back in town and confronts her about something.
I loved Shane,but i admit that i wanted to slap some sens in him.He was charming and interesting,but somehow he managed to let himself be tricked by a a drunk guy.And that's why i wanted to slap him..I guess.When i started to read from his point of view i was happy and i was glad that i could read what he was thinking when he was around Mel or what he thought about the situation Brad put him in.It was perfect.And..Yikes!
Both him ,and Mel where too stubborn and i liked that.It was fun how they acted when they were together,that until the point when they started to yell .My favorite moment?When Melanie told Shane the truth about why everyone hated her..and the reason why Shane thought bad about her.Double Yikes.
This wasn't just a simple story.This was about a single mother whose life wasn't simple at all.All she ever wanted was to raise her son and never think about the past.But the past doesn't disapear .Exactly when you don't expect,it comes back and makes you remember everything.
