The Broken Hearts Society of 17C by Leigh Ann Kopan **Blog tour - Review**

8:30 pm 2 Comments A+ a-

Hey Everyone!

I'd like to introduce you to Leigh Ann Kopans. This is the last stop on her blog tour to celebrate the release of her latest book - The Broken Hearts Society of 17C. It is a New Adult book full of romance and self discovery. I absolutely LOVED it!

Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.

Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again.)

The Broken Hearts Society of 17C by Leigh Ann Kopans

Friends don’t let friends make the same horrible relationship mistakes twice.

Rion, Amy, and Arielle, the three occupants of first-year dorm Harrison Tower’s Suite 17C have never met before the first day of school, but they soon discover they have one thing in common – being on the wrong end of an epically awful breakup.

Heartbreak sucks, especially when the girls should have seen the trouble coming from a mile away. But there’s no better time than the beginning of college to take charge of your own love life, and nobody better than a roommate to keep you accountable. Over ice cream and pizza their first week, the girls vow never again to date anyone like the assholes who ripped their hearts out and smeared them across the quad.

And that's how the Broken Hearts’ Society of Suite 17C is born.

Now, if only Crash, the tattooed, pierced, and probably stoned guy who works at Rion’s newest job, wasn’t so damn sexy and sweet...

If only Matt, the thoughtful and driven pastor’s kid, would quit being so okay with just being Amy’s friend…

If only Lauren, the innocent small-town girl with her own set of issues, would stop finishing Arielle’s sentences and invading her dreams…

it would be a lot easier for the girls to keep their promises to the Society and to themselves.

If only.
 



Hey! Here's my review.

This is the first book I have read by LeighAnn Kopans. I wasn't sure what to expect and I found the first page quite confronting. There was a whole lot of swearing and a drug bust. Not quite what I was expecting and I was thinking to myself is all this swearing really necessary. I don't swear and it made me feel a little uncomfortable. I kept reading though and the writing style changed completely in the next chapter. I discovered that the book is written from three main characters POV and each have vastly different personalities. The writing style and language change in each POV and capture the characters perfectly. Yes the swearing was necessary and so was everything else in the book - it was perfect!

As I got to know Rian (swears like a sailor), Amy (sweet overprotected Christian) and Arielle (non athletic lesbian) they each found a place in my heart. I went with them on their journey through starting college, heartbreak, friendship and finding love. I even had a bit of a crush on Crash, Matt and Lauren - they won me over too! I was emotionally caught up in the story. The feels! I'm glad I was wearing my sunglasses at the park this morning as I read the last four chapters.

As well as three beautiful love stories and a tale of friendship, many deeper issues are explored such as homosexuality, drug use, abortion, trust and controlling relationships.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
