Review: But I Love Him

Hello, my fellow bookworms! I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend so far!
Today I’m back with a review for the first book that I read for the Magical Readathon! I picked this up totally on a whim  and flew right through it – the story was so well done.
Happy reading!! 😉


But I Love Him by Amanda Grace
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 245
Publication Date: May 2011
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read April 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Sometimes at night, I wake up and stare at the heart for hours. I think of how I collected each piece from the beach, how I glued it all together into one big sculpture. I wonder if Connor realizes what it means, that he’ll always have a piece of me no matter what happens. Each piece of glass is another piece of myself that I gave to him.
It’s too bad I didn’t keep any pieces for myself.
At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved – and needed. Ann can’t recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor’s rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything – and everyone – in its path.
This evocative slideshow of flashbacks reveals a heartbreaking story of love gone terribly wrong.
