Love Me Not Book Review

Title: Love Me Not
Author: Reese Ryan
Series: Bad Boys Gone Good (Book #2)


Abandoned by a mother who chose drugs over her, Jamie Charles barely got out of her own addiction alive. Now, she pours her pain into her art while pouring drinks at a local bar. To Jamie, love is a four-letter word—until she meets Miles, a charming ad exec with piercing blue eyes who makes no secret about his desire for her.

Miles Copeland has family demons of his own, but his unhappy upbringing drove him toward hard work and success. He's determined to win Jamie over, and when he finally does, it's worth every moment he spent waiting. But when he confesses that he's falling for her, she panics. Sex is one thing, but love requires more than she can give.

Jamie can't deny her feelings, but she's haunted by her past. Miles knows his heart, but Jamie's lingering doubts have him questioning their future. It might take the threat of losing him forever for her to realize that refusing to let love in is the worst mistake of all.
 This story is filled with tons of emotion, both current and past baggage. It was definately different, and kudos to Reese Ryan for exploring that side of human nature. It's not easy to read at times so I can only imagine how difficult it is to write. Love Me Not had me hooked from that first chapter. 

Jamie is a young woman with an immense amount of emotional baggage. Her character is extremely well-developed and well-written, making it easy to feel certain emotions when reading her story. She really does pull at your heart strings. The only thing I didn't like about her character was her ability to intentionally run away from her problems instead of facing them head on. To me it seems a bit childish. 

Miles was fantastic and truthfully I was so surprised when he came back around after she was so aloof towards him when they met. He is intelligent, sweet, sexy and seemed to really like her. Basically, he was amazing! His character was just as well developed and well written as Jamie's was.
