Review: Believe by Erin McCarthy

Title: Believe
Author: Erin McCarthy
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Publication date: January 21st 2013


Synopsis:

Robin used to be a party girl… until she got black out drunk and woke up in bed with her best friend’s boyfriend. Now she’s faced with being THAT girl, and couldn’t be more disgusted with herself. She can’t even tell her friends the reason for her sudden sobriety and she avoids everyone until she meets Phoenix—quiet, tattooed, and different in every way that’s good and oh, so bad…

Phoenix is two days out of jail when he meets Robin at his cousin’s house, and he knows that he has no business talking to her, but he’s drawn to her quiet demeanor, sweet smile, and artistic talent. She doesn’t care that he’s done time, or that he only has five bucks to his name, and she supports his goal to be a tattoo artist.

But Phoenix knows Robin has a secret, and that it’s a na├»ve dream to believe that his record won’t catch up with them at some point. Though neither is prepared for the explosive result when the past collides with the present…


My Review:

4/5

I received this book from NetGalley for review.

Erin McCarthy has done it again. In the third book of the True Believers series the story continues with the cousin of Tyler and Riley.

Phoenix grew up in a similar way to his cousins. His mother wasn't attentive or very caring. As a child he learned to deal with his own demons. Now, he has just come out of prison and has to stay with his cousins. Here he meets Robin. Quiet and closed off, Robin seems broken and being broken himself, Phoenix can understand her and see that she is hiding some demons of her own.

Robin made a huge mistake over the summer and now she has to deal with the consequences of it. To prevent anything else from happening she cuts herself from alcohol and partying. She avoids her friends but it becomes difficult and she finally has to face the music. Then she meets Phoenix, bad boy, artist and possibly the only other person around who feels the same as she does.

Robin and Phoenix's story was so cute and heartbreaking at the same time. Erin McCarthy has created a world where even in a world full of darkness caused by a person's past, there is always light when there is someone to share it with.


My only issue with this story was that it felt too short but that is always a good complaint.
