"Pain. It hurts us. It pushes us. It punishes us. Or, for the few poor souls out there like me...it defines us."
You know what I love the most when it comes to reading, finding new authors. But what is more special is finding a book from a new author that completely makes you so excited and actually fall in love with. Blame it on the Pain was that special book to me. Written by Ashley Jade, Blame it on the Pain is a captivating and emotional story that had me on the edge of my seat.
Jackson is an underground fighter who is going through pain after seeing his sister dead and kills his best friend. He faces imprisonment in jail but enters a deal with a mob boss to be his underground fighter. Alyssa is also going through her own pain after watching her father getting murdered and video of her that went viral. Both Jackson and Alyssa meet and sparks fly. This was a different story that I loved a lot. The story itself was so mesmerizing and I loved it . There was so much drama and action that it made my heart pump with so much excitement. And the feels. Omg the feels in this book just made me cry. There was so much angst that it made me cry. The scenes actually spoke to me because of the feelings evoked throughout the book.
I always say the characters make the book. Jackson and Alyssa totally made the book so amazing. I loved them together. You know when two characters suffer and carry so much pain and darkness but together they can create loads of light. That was Jackson and Alyssa. This book was a journey for the two of them. Jackson was so caring and loving. He was so protective and I truly felt sorry for him. Alyssa was strong and sassy. But its their vulnerable side that spoke to me more. Their feelings that made my heart ache a lot sometimes. Their story was so beautiful.
I loved reading Blame it on the Pain and it is one of my favourites book of this year. Not only it is my favourite but it introduced me to a new author that I love and I will be reading more of her books.
