Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

My Soul to Keep - Rachel Vincent Reviewed at http://www.mandikayereads.com/archives/1507I’m going to take a departure from my normal review format. Today, I’m going to write an open letter to Nash Hudson. Which also means this will be quite spoilerish for any of you who haven’t yet read this book- so proceed with caution!Dear Nash,What. The. Eff.In the first book, you were the perfect guy. Sure, you were a little too perfect, but a girl can look past that because you were so attentive, so sweet, and so caring in a crisis. And I’ll admit, in the second book there were some red flags. But I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. It was obvious how much you cared for Kaylee, despite your overbearing and controlling ways.But you screwed up in a big way in the third book.And I don’t know if you can fix it. How is anyone supposed to trust you ever again? For all intents and purposes, you threw Kaylee under a bus, and you never stopped to see if she was okay.When I first found out that you would do something that would make my feelings about you change, I was heartbroken. But I never really thought you could do something that bad.I was wrong.In the beginning of the book, I thought you were heading in a bad direction- you were pushing Kaylee far too hard on the sex issue when she obviously wasn’t ready. And to be honest, I’m glad you didn’t turn out to be a rapist. But what happened was worse, in some ways.Oh Nash, how could you? You’re not that guy. At least, you’re not supposed to be that guy.You’ve disappointed me. You’ve broken my trust. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to read you again the same way.You’ve got a long road ahead of you for redemption. And I sincerely hope you take it.Love,Mandi Kaye
