    3.5 so beautiful at times but CONTAINS SLIGHT SPOILERS Parts of this this book were beautiful and I enjoyed reading it but it could have been , for me it had one major flaw.Wren has baggage,than anyone person should have but while she s suffered she s also survived, her body is covered it tattoos, her armour, her strength and her mask She s different, quirky, intelligent, funny and talented but she s weighed down by her past.Lee Hawthorne is a doctor who s life, on the su 3.5 so beautiful at times but CONTAINS SLIGHT SPOILERS Parts of this this book were beautiful and I enjoyed reading it but it could have been , for me it had one major flaw.Wren has baggage,than anyone person should have but while she s suffered she s also survived, her body is covered it tattoos, her armour, her strength and her mask She s different, quirky, intelligent, funny and talented but she s weighed down by her past.Lee Hawthorne is a doctor who s life, on the surface anyway seems perfect but he s also incredibly perceptive at times and he manages to see Wren like no one else has.These two meet when Wren ends up in hospital under his care, but there s something there, they both feel it and fate keeps giving them a nudge and putting them together.I liked the story and I liked both main characters, Wren needs Lee, she needs someone to love her and fight for her and Lee needs Wren as well otherwise he ll find himself living a life he doesn t want.Sounds good Yes it does so what s my problem When they meet Lee is in a long term relationship with his girlfriend Marcelle, things aren t perfect obviously because this is Lee and Wren s book but he s dating Marcelle when he meets Wren, then again when they meet and he flirts with her and again when they kiss for the first time.Now I know people have different ideas on cheating I had a discussion with a friend about a character in a book who had actual intercourse with another woman and she argued and still argues that this wasn t cheating because his heart wasn t involved I digress I know but my point is people will view this differently but to me it felt like cheating but if he d have gone straight back and ended his relationship with Marcelle because he has feelings for Wren then I would have let it pass but he didn t he continued on.Spending time and developing feelings for Wren allows Lee to really see his life, the way it s going and he makes decisions on this but still his relationship with Marcelle doesn t end and when it does it isn t directly because of Wren, well it is but it s not a case of I like someone else it s because he gets a puppy.This may seem a minor point and like I said people will view this differently but for me it s cheating and I didn t like it and nearly stopped reading, if it had happened earlier I would have done but it was 30% in and I wanted to follow this story and these two but the damage was done and while I really enjoyed the rest of the book I could never fully get past their beginning

    This is a very beautiful story that touched my heart I really really loved it.The weird thing is I thought of dropping it in Chapter 1 2 because its writing style didn t appeal to me and the story wasn t flowing, at all I am SO glad that I didn t drop and miss this beautiful book After Chapter 3, the book starts to pull you in Suddenly, I was really hooked and I realized it was 5 a.m when I finished reading it in one sitting.The characters are awesome, the story is touching and heart warmin This is a very beautiful story that touched my heart I really really loved it.The weird thing is I thought of dropping it in Chapter 1 2 because its writing style didn t appeal to me and the story wasn t flowing, at all I am SO glad that I didn t drop and miss this beautiful book After Chapter 3, the book starts to pull you in Suddenly, I was really hooked and I realized it was 5 a.m when I finished reading it in one sitting.The characters are awesome, the story is touching and heart warming and everything happens as it might have had in real life I liked the feeling of reality in it.As I said, the only problem I had with this book was its writing style First of all, the flashbacks aren t used effectively Also, the book is written in the third person narrative, which is my least favorite And from one chapter to another, the narration focuses on one of the main character s thoughts and feelings It would have been a perfect book with dual point of view Such a shame Still, I believe it is a book very well worth reading The story is worth 5 stars I took 1 point off because of the distracting 3rd person narrative, that s all.The plot This is the love story of Wren, a tattoo artist and Lee, a doctor Yeah, not a usual match, as you can imagine Dr Lee Hawthorn meets our heroine, Wren, at hospital and as his patient He operates on her and from the very first moment, he is enchanted by her unique beauty.Wren is very different from the women he is used to She is totally different from his girlfriend, Marcelle Yeap, he has a girlfriend he is not a man wh re Because of Wren, he starts to question his relationship but he cannot all of a sudden leave his girlfriend He has this period of confusion realizing etc Lee knew that with someone like Wren, the amount of time didn t really matter all that much She was the kind of person who could leave a mark with just one meeting. Wren is a tough girl whose whole body is covered in tattoos She has a barbell in her eyebrow Her hair is ink black blue She is enchanted by the handsome doctor with ocean blue eyes, as well but because she thinks he is out of her league, she is afraid of even dreaming about him.A few encounters with Wren makes Lee understand that he is settling with his present girlfriend A few hours around her makes him realize that he actually needs someone like Wren.Although I didn t like how Lee and his girlfriend were separated, I was glad that there wasn t a love triangle There was one small and short stolen kiss, though, while he still had his girlfriend After Lee is free, he goes after Wren but Wren is a damaged soul She doesn t easily open up to people and trust them Lee really works hard to earn her trust Thethey see each other, thethey realize that they have a lot of things in common However, Wren is the one who always feels it is not possible to last and upon each problem, she tries to flee Of course, Lee s parents cause a problem, too when they first see her but it doesn t last long when they understand how serious Lee is Also, after they are separated, there is no ex girlfriend drama at all, which was good I loved that the majority of the book focuses on the relationship between Lee and Wren.The push pull between Lee and WrenWren is afraid of loving Lee because she is sure that he will hurt her She thinks he is interested in her because she is different She doesn t feel she deserves a man like him so she believes that he will definitely leave her soon and she is afraid of being hurt, then That is why, he really has to try hard to make her believe that his feelings are real and they are not temporary Wren pushes him away inthan one or two cases.The past of WrenWren has a sad past When she finally confesses to him what she endured when she was a little child, we understand why she is hiding behind all these tattoos These tattoos have a story from her own life She didn t have to explain that her ink told a story Somehow, the phoenix connected everything She d been burned to ashes, and she lived to tell the tale But Lee could see she was still that frightened bird. Applauds to Ms Fournet Books in which victims of violence abuse are healed magically just by falling in love with a good guy or even by threesomes in some unbelievable books always piss me off They are not realistic at all So I was really happy to see that the writer emphasizes the importance of therapy in cases like Wren s Victims of abuse usually feel guilty and most think of themselves as unclean A self compassion therapy or something like that is what they definitely need to take And with all his love and devotion, Lee not only offers Wren a life where she feels loved, he also makes sure that she believes she deserves to be loved He does it by always sticking around her and never letting her go and also by encouraging her to have therapy I really appreciated this realistic approach to the matter Thank you, dear writer Final thoughtsI loved how the book made me feel The build up of Wren and Lee s relationship is very well done Although the 3rd person narrative disturbed me immensely, the beautifully written dialogues served as a compensation The book has its hot moments but mostly, it is highly emotional.Ohh, I mustn t forget about Agnes Victor Such cute animals that try to get on well, seeing their owners are doing the same They really add color to the story.Here are somequotes from the bookYou heard the man, Lee Let me go Her voice sounded completely hollow Step away I don t want to hurt you She took her foot off the brake, and the car started to roll He locked eyes with her but pushed back from the car You already have She said the way your folks looked at her only reflected how she sees herself That she s not good enough for you I have a long road ahead of me He kissed her thumb and spoke against it I ll walk it with you We ll take our time Wren was struggling to make herself understood, to try to put in words how it felt like he had redrawn the earth and the sky and the seas to make the world new all for her It was that huge I ve never felt so loved

    This is a very tender and touching story At first glance, it appears to be an opposites attract romance, but it s not at all It s about two people that have so much in common and want nothingthan to be good enough for one another The story ischaracter driven than plot driven and that was nice The story focused on their love and Wren s healing I would definitely categorize this as a sweet romance, but it wasn t cheesy Overall, it was a very nice and heartwarming read The hero This is a very tender and touching story At first glance, it appears to be an opposites attract romance, but it s not at all It s about two people that have so much in common and want nothingthan to be good enough for one another The story ischaracter driven than plot driven and that was nice The story focused on their love and Wren s healing I would definitely categorize this as a sweet romance, but it wasn t cheesy Overall, it was a very nice and heartwarming read The hero Lee is a pretty amazing guy that any reader will fall for

    This would be the most consuming couple but they are one of the most cute and straight forward in a way or the other.This book does not have streamy romance but it has a one that would make you feel much better when it ends This story revolves around Lee and wren.They are not actually polar opposite but they are some what may different in appearance.Lee is a doctor at a Charity hospital and wren is a tattoo artist.Lee is a fun loving and some what a childish character and wren is all colorful This would be the most consuming couple but they are one of the most cute and straight forward in a way or the other.This book does not have streamy romance but it has a one that would make you feel much better when it ends This story revolves around Lee and wren.They are not actually polar opposite but they are some what may different in appearance.Lee is a doctor at a Charity hospital and wren is a tattoo artist.Lee is a fun loving and some what a childish character and wren is all colorful and a total tattoo girl.Lee and wrens meeting each other was quite a scene that no one would like that happening to them.Wren collapses after completing a tattoo and needs a urgent surgery and Lee was the doctor who had to operate her ,but as wren was hardly concious all she says is don t ruin my tattoo.Who would say that in there right mind.After the operation Lee taught was quite a shock he taught she should like his handwork.Who thinks that.Both the character have a very good sense of humor in the story The romance is not streaming but it makes a quick stressful arona around you.Lee was in a relationship when he met wren and out of the way helped her by dropping her home ,cleaning the cats litter box.But still it made him look unfaithful.All tough he knew he was being unfaithful but he still did it.All tough when Lee relationship ended it bought a feeling of releaf If we once again look at the staring we would see that Lee is shown to be totally dedicated to his relationship which makes it feel it wrong for him to be with Wren.All tough in the whole book none the of them deny the fact that they are attached to each other.There are some part in the book that seem to be insignificant all tough they are the mystery part of the story.Wren is abused in her past but there is no where metioned what happened to her abuser and all the time there is mention of her mother but no where it is mentioned how she died.Every where there is a small part that tells about wrens past but none seems to connect to the next one After Lee and wren are together they have to face a lot of problems which is because wren cannot get her self to trust the relationship and her own problems with trusting peapel and I n this book they have over come it beautifully without a lot of fussing over small things.After reading this book in between the chapters the story was quite straight the story had a ex girlfriend who was for some time a little bit of trouble booster.It had past as a trouble but it missed a part in which there early there love ,it s not like they don t but some what it feltreserved.The epilogue was quite beautiful with a very unique way of telling something
