Book Review
This story deals with the ever so prevalent issue of teen abuse. Jayden, a star football player with a volatile personality and Destiny, a cheerleader and ambitious student come together during their Junior year of high school.  Destiny ignores the red flags and warnings from her friends and accepts the relationship. It (the relationship) eventually evolves into punches, broken bones, black eyes, rape and more.
This particular author excels at storylines that highlight abuse. She draws you in with vivid imagery and relatable circumstances and characters. This trilogy was no different. You felt each Jayden's confusion when he asks, "Why doesn't she understand I love her?".  When Destiny was sexually assaulted the first time and her feelings were a mix of anger, fear, confusion, and distress.

The story moved at a moderate pace, was well-structured, however, it could be a bit repetitive. All in all, I would recommend this book to young adult readers and their parents.
