“Just let it go.”

That’s what everyone keeps telling Hadley St. Clair after she learns that her father cheated on her mother. But Hadley doesn’t want to let it go. She wants to be angry and she wants everyone in her life—her dad most of all—to leave her alone.

Sam Bennett and his family have had their share of drama too. Still reeling from a move to a new town and his parents’ recent divorce, Sam is hoping that he can coast through senior year and then move on to hassle-free, parent-free life in college. He isn’t looking for a relationship…that is, until he sees Hadley for the first time.

Hadley and Sam’s connection is undeniable, but Sam has a secret that could ruin everything. Should he follow his heart or tell the truth?

As soon as I picked up Suffer Love, I knew that it was going to be a different kind of contemporary, and boy was I right. The story follows Hadley St. Clair and Sam Bennett, both of whom live with families that have gone through affairs.

They both also lived in Nashville at one point. After being partnered together in English class, their lives begin to intertwine. However, Sam has quite a big secret that he decides to never tell Hadley.

Hadley was such a unique character. She was known for not the greatest things at school but she was honestly a good person. As soon as I started reading through her point of view, I felt that she was misunderstood by others.

She seemed to become a bad person in the eyes of others very easily when most of the time she hadn’t even done anything wrong, such as the beginning incident with Josh.

Sam was also a great character. I really liked his story though he tended to go out of his way to spite his mother quite often, especially through the use of Hadley coming over to his house even though the two of them had a project that they had to do together. I also liked his little sister, Livvy, and his big-brother’s urges to always protect his little sister.

I honestly think that Ashley Herring Blake did such a great job with this book. The pacing was awesome because I never found myself bored with what I was reading. I also think that everything in the book was so expertly discussed. I can’t wait to read more written by her in the future.

If you can, be sure to pick up a copy of Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake at your local library or even a bookstore. You won’t regret it!
