Hadley St. Clair's life changed the day she came home to a front door covered in slips of paper, each of them revealing the ugly truth about her father. Now as her family falls apart in the wake of his year-long affair, Hadley wants everyone-her dad most of all-to leave her alone.

Then she meets Sam Bennett, a cute new boy who inexplicably "feels like home" to Hadley. Hadley and Sam's connection is undeniable, but Sam has a secret about his family that could ruin everything.

Funny and passionate, Suffer Love is a story about first love, family dysfunction, and the fickle hand of fate.


I really wanted to read an book filled with angsty romance and Suffer Love was just that. I could feel my heart breaking throughout the entire story and felt the atmosphere around me change as I got more well acquainted with the characters.

This book was painful. In a good way of course. Hadley is a troubled teen. It starts that way from the beginning. Her family is broken, she feels betrayed, and she feels alone. There comes in Sam Bennett. Reading from Sam's point of view felt like watching a visual of it in my mind and imagining how this would turn out. Every word every time I read from Sam's point of view, all I could feel was internal pain. 

(I will be using this gif a lot)
It left something heavy in my chest, because I was silently dying in agony. 

The romance between Hadley and Sam was sincere. I liked how it was a relationship built on trust and experience. It is a growing relationship that fits the plot very well as their relationship turns into the light inside of a dark tunnel and it focused more on their feelings than their physical feelings *cough* *cough*. 

THAT ENDING. The ending practically ruined me! It teared my heart open and threw it into the trash can. It was an ending that fit the book left many promises and endings. 

I recommend this book for all the strong at heart readers who are looking for an angsty book that they will enjoy!
