    I wanted to like this book Truly I did And you would think that being a sufferer of panic attacks myself, I would be able to relate to the female protagonist, Talia Gregory I suppose I could, in a way But the overall feeling I had was irritation with Allie Brennan for not providing this poor character with a interesting personality and maybe a psychiatrist The drama surrounding Talia is that she is attempting to control her panic attacks without the aid of medication While her Nan is in favor of the no meds route, Talia s mother is completely against it, wanting Talia back on pills as soon as possible I understand her concern since Talia is teetering on the edge of a panic attack pretty much all the time Talia knows that if she can t control her attacks, her parents will eventually force her back on medication This is where I pinch the bridge of my nose and come to the realization that the author may not know as much about panic disorders as the reader has been led to believe Putting that kind of stress control this or you ll be forced to do something you hate on a person suffering from a panic disorder is completely counterproductive, as it exacerbates the cycle of stress and panic But that concern comes in second to my biggest concern the fact that, apparently, neither one of Talia s parents or her Nan, either, for that matter have ever bothered to look for alternative means of helping Talia There are behavioral exercises and trained mental health professionals readily available for people like Talia, but she is apparently left completely to her own devices to justcope The only person who has ever been able to bring her down from one of her panics has been her Nan That is, until Lachlan McCreedy comes along Lachlan McCreedy Here we go again The damaged, emotionally distant bad boy with a sensitive heart of gold that no one notices because he keeps getting into trouble Because he s troubled I m not against the bad boy thing Really I m not even against the bad boy who needs help thing What I am against is the bad boy who suffered years of emotional and physical abuse only to have his walls completely torn down in a matter of what appears to be two weeks by some girl who s constantly on the verge of a complete and total mental breakdown That bugs the living shit out of me It s completely unrealistic and serves to further the myth that the only thing a troubled man needs is the right woman While this is a sweet notion, it s also a little detrimental when presented in such a seemingly innocuous package Other than my obvious issue with how the characters are depicted, how does the rest of the book stack up Grammatically, things seem OK There were a few minor issues here and there, but nothing that made me want to give myself a lobotomy As for the story itself, it s nothing than your average, formulaic YA romance with some fairly silly, predictable and frankly, tedious obstacles The romance becomes almost cloyingly sweet at times, too corny for its own good I thought the laundry room scene was kind of hot, but that was the single bright spot in an otherwise foggy muddle of trying too hard to be serious wording There were a lot of plot points that either weren t properly presented or just plain left to dangle I really did become quite bored with waiting for Lachlan to stop being an idiot, and I was offended by the way panic disorders are represented It sickens me that there are actually people out there who believe a mental emotional handicap makes a person interesting No Do you know what makes a person interesting Who they are And those of us who suffer with panic and anxiety disorders are in a constant struggle to not be defined by those disorders My soapbox is starting to cave in a bit, so I suppose I ll finish this up by saying, if you re into the bad boy reformation stories, you ll probably get at least a little satisfaction from this book It s not terrible, and I think Allie Brennan has potential as a writer I just think she tried to tackle subject matter that was way over her head.

    I checked out this book at first because I liked the cover and I love knitting, and even though I knew it was a YA and I m really too old for that, I decided I d give it a try and downloaded the sample chapters After reading them, I decided I had to buy it, because I needed to know what would happen to Talia and Lachlan Who cares I m not a YA any We ve all been there at some point in our lives, haven t we Well, I loved the story and the characters don t we all secretly love bad boys and I loved to read how love helped both characters, when they both felt lost and hopeless.I loved seeing the story both through Talia s and Lachlan s eyes, it was funny to see how different and yet alike they were thinking and seeing things.The dialogues are very well crafted and feel real it s definitely not an easy task for a writer and the story is a mixture of drama, fun and love that will keep you turning pages.The writing flows smoothly there are a few typos every now and then, nothing a proofread can t fix and the characters really come to life which is another hard task for a writer.Kudos to the author Her writing s really good and I m happy I discovered this book.PS I couldn t help falling for Lachlanalthough, like I said, I m too old for YA.
