Fans of Katie McGarry, Simone Elkeles, and Tammara Webber will loveAgainst the Wall! As teenagers, they fell for each other despite the odds. But now that Eric and Meghan are all grown up, they’re reunited by fierce passion and dangerous secrets.
Eric Hernandez is the bad boy of every schoolgirl’s fantasies—and every mother’s nightmares. But after serving time for manslaughter, he’s ready to turn his life around. He just needs a chance to prove himself as a professional tattoo artist. The one thing that keeps him going is the memory of the innocent beauty he loved and left behind.

Meghan Young’s world isn’t as perfect as it looks. The preacher’s daughter is living a lie, especially now that Eric is back. Tougher, harder, and sexier than ever, he might be the only person she can trust. But there’s no telling what he’ll do to protect her if he learns the truth, and that’s a risk Meghan won’t let him take. And yet, back in the arms of the troubled boy with the artist’s soul, Meghan can’t help surrendering to the man he’s become.

Divider_031My Thoughts



Alright so this is going to be a short review as I am at work and I’m quite busy. Anyway what can I say about this book. In my eyes it was okay but it did not make me fall head over heels in love.  Now this is the first novel that I read by Jill Sorenson and I’m sorry but I expected more. This book only got a 2.5 star/heart rating in my eyes which I’m rounding up till 3 stars/hearts. Why am I doing that?? You’ll see…..

First off all I saw this book on Netgalley and when I read the blurb I was excited to read it but it just fell flat to me even though this book already has some high praises on Goodreads. The story itself was okay but what I hated was the two main characters. I love guys with tats but Eric not so much. I mean he is trying too hard to play the tough ex-con but he just wasn’t tough enough for that. He was just way too soft and just downright vulnerable at times. And then we come to Meghan…. *Sigh* I don’t know what to say….. She is just so naïve and she annoyed me most of the time. Normally a person should love the main characters but they just didn’t do it for me.

Now why would I round up my 2.5 stars instead of going lower? Now that is an easy answer. It was the minor characters that saved the story for me. I loved Tank and Matthew and I really wanted more of them! Especially my man Tank! It was the minor/ secondary characters and their stories that saved the book for me.  And like I said before the story line of the book was okay but I could have done without the main characters or they could have gotten some improvement for me. I wanted more of the secondary characters, I mean they are the ones that fascinate me and they are the ones who felt real.  THEY are the ones I want to read more about!

Anyway this book was okay enough BUT I think this is one of those books that you will either hate or love. I would have loved more of the secondary characters and less of the main but I can’t change that. Anyway it was a quick and easy read for me but the main characters just fell flat in my eyes.
