Eason I gave it 35 stars is I
felt the typos were very distracting so fellowthe typos were very distracting so fellow nazis beware and I also thought the characters were a bit typical However if *YOU ENJOY BEAUTY AND THE BEAST TYPE STORIES AND *enjoy beauty and the beast type stories and like seeing emotionally wounded characters transformed by love this book may be for you 35 stars rounded up to 4 This book started out slowly and I found both the writing and the storyline very youngish Now what does youngish mean To me it means that the writer was expecting the reader to be in their teens or late teens not a seasoned romance slut like myself That said the book was still enjoyable just a tad bit blandThe H is a young Marine coming home after being horribly scarred from an explosion He hates how he looks and assumes everyone else will also He only goes out in the dark covered by a hoodie and otherwise lives like a hermit in his apartmentThe h is a 21 year old girl whose parents have been illed and she is now forced to care for her 10 year old sister All of her dreams have been put on hold so that she can work and Speer keep a roof over their heads She moves into the same apartment complex as the Marine and slowly with the help of the Marine s sister and just the force of the h s generally good and caring heart they become friends and eventually off screen than friendsUnfortunately we got a lot of the friend building moments but very little of the real relationship building but there was a very nice epilogue at the end which was satisfying Another big highlight of the book is the 10 year old sister She has the confidence and mouth on her that only a 10 year can have and it is really funny at times This is one of those books where you feel sad when it s over because the main characters feel like they ve become part of your extended family and you miss them when there s no to read Weber has a talent for the tiny details that bring each and every one of her characters to life Even the dog has a realistic personality When Eponine and Riley first meet they are both suffering from past events Riley is struggling with the events of everyday living with the mental and physical scars of war Eponine is struggling having to grow up too uickly after the death of her parents and becoming the sole guardian of her younger si.
