With Every Hearbeat (Forbidden Men #4) - Linda Kage

This book..Im deeply conflicted . The story's about a shy guy and girl who share similar pasts and bond over their understanding of each other. It just...I was expecting SO MUCH..because...ITS QUINN!! I had a different perception of Quinn through all the others books and saw a different side of him in this one. I just .. imagined it to go a bit differently. It's very unexpected the way the story twists and turns. It definitely kept me glued to the pages. But I just wanted to love these characters the most in the whole series (it had the potential trust me) but somewhere along the book I just couldn't love them as I'd hoped. I wish they were a little different. There were a lot of parts I disagreed with. *Spoiler Alert* *Spoiler Alert*

*Proceed with caution* I never expected Quinn to freaking propose to Cora when he'd been having feeling for Zoey. Like dudeeee....I did not see that coming or like it. It really put a dent in my heart. And I know there's a lot that can be said to defend what he did but this is just how I felt. And...I had kinda hoped Zoey and Quinn to get together a little bit differently not on the same night he broke up with Cora or was drunk while they slept for the first time. I just ..I loved Quinn in the whole series EXCEPT this book. And Dammit call me heartless or whatever but I did not agree with Zoey giving her kidney to Cora. Not after all that shit Cora's done. Zoey didn't deserve that. Cora has NEVER shown an iota of goodness in her. And she doesn't really appreciate the kind of life Zoey is giving her. It just felt ....URGH. I just..I love you Zwinn but I really really hoped for more.

About the book:

I used to think everything was black and white, truth or lie, easy or hard, that if I could just escape my strict, overbearing, abusive father, my life would be perfect. But since I’ve found a reason to risk his wrath and leave, to help a friend in need, I’ve come to realize everything I thought I knew is wrong. Friends have their own agenda, honesty comes with a dosage of lie, easy doesn’t even exist, keeping secrets sucks, and love...love is the most painful thing of all. Maybe if Quinn Hamilton hadn’t asked me to skip classes for the day and help him pick out an engagement ring for my best friend, I wouldn’t have fallen for him so completely on that sunny Tuesday afternoon and I wouldn’t feel so conflicted. But I did, and I can’t take it back, no matter how hard I try. So I have to deal with the fact that even I’m not as good, or honest, or caring as I’d always thought I was, and no matter what I do next, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me. -Zoey Blakeland
