See Through Heart

This book came in a recent book subscription box and I picked it out of my to-read pile because the cover was pretty and it wasn't long.

That makes it a winner already.

See Through Heart - Amie Knight

Ainsley came into my life in a flurry of vibrant colors, lighting my world up when all seemed lost.

It wasn’t our quiet nights by the creek or stolen kisses surrounded by a sea of cotton that saved me.  

It was her. 

She was my comfort when life threw one ugly tragedy after another at me. 

Until she dealt me the greatest blow. 

Now, abandonment, betrayal, and death darken every corner of my life.  Anger and hurt burn bright where love and trust once lived.  

But, now, she’s back.  Sure, she’s changed, but I see through it—straight to her heart.

Alright so in this book we have Ainsley and her pseudo sister Lori as young girls who meet a boy with suspenders, Adrian. They soon become an inseparable trio and the story follows them through the years, including the year that Ainsley and Adrian finally become the couple they were destined to be, Lori's untimely death, Ainsley leaving like a coward, and the end... which I can't tell you. I will tell you that for awhile there the book was literally TOO perfect of a love story and I was a little worried this would be a dud of a book. But then... just on time... Ainsley makes the biggest, most cowardly mistake of her life and I instantly hated her. Within seconds I went from love to hate with a character and I was taken aback by it. Things come around eventually and they both have to profess their love for each other in big ways but it's worth it. The slow roll to the end is worth it. So, so worth it. I'm giving this (I know, I'm crazy with these this week) 5 stars because I am a sucker for love stories that span since childhood and happy endings. Sigh. I can't help it.
