Love, Hurt, Repeat – Vivyan Lynne

Oh my god! After the minor drama of the first book the sequel is the definition of “that escalated quickly!”

The whole feel of this book is darker than the first with each small moment building to culminate in…that ending. For the entirety of the final 2 chapters I was muttering “holy shit” to myself.

I absolutely loved hearing Damian’s side of things in this book. The switching between main characters really added to the frustration at both of them and showed how people can view the same situation so differently and why communication is so important in any relationship.

This book kept me turning the page, even as I cursed the characters and became increasingly frustrated with their terrible, immature attitude to relationships.

As frustrating as it was to read, I felt it accurately portrayed the kind of thought processes and drama that happen in late teen/early adulthood. That frustration that I’m sure many parents feel watching their kids go through first relationships and life mistakes is, I’m sure, similar to what I felt reading Love, Hurt, Repeat.

I really enjoyed the book, although enjoy feels like the wrong word in this instance! It had a powerful, underlying message and was very well written.

Disclosure: this book was written by one of my clients but I paid full price for the book and read it by choice.
