5 Hearts

Kai Manter is working at a coffee shop while finishing up high school. When he sees Jamie Arlotta he likes him a lot. Jamie however is not amused by the attention Kai is giving him.

Jamie is bitchy and aloof, except when Kai’s music touches something inside him.

Kai finds out about the abuse Jamie has been suffering through for years by his stepbrother. He starts a musical intervention, trying to let Jamie know he is there for him.

Jamie slowly starts to trust Kai and their relationship starts to bloom. Jamie’s stepbrother doesn’t give up easily, causing trouble for the both of them repeatedly. There is also a stalker that doesn’t want to let go of Kai.

Kai tries to get Jamie to go to therapy but Jamie just wants to forget. Even with all this bad stuff happening, they continue to get closer and closer. Until one day Jamie breaks up with Kai and becomes his bitchy old self again. Kai needs to find out what happened and make it right again.

This book is one of the best I read in a while. The things I described above are just a small part of everything that happens. It’s a heart wrenching story of abuse, fear, friendship and love.

Jamie is a very scared boy, that cares too much about the health of his dad. This is the reason why his stepbrother has so much control over him. After a while the abuse just scrambles your mind and you don’t see any way out anymore. Kai is a wonderful person when is stops being a arrogant snot.

Kai’s brother is the surprise factor in this book for me. It’s a weird but strangely warm person that becomes the rock of both Kai and Jamie.

I can’t even begin to explain all the things that happen and why, you’ll just have to read it. It’s worth the money and all the tissues you’ll need.

This is not an endorsement of this book. this is an unbiased, objective review.
