I don’t know if it’s possible to express how much I loved this book. Blake’s writing is beautiful, poetic, and her sense of humor had me trying to conceal laughter at 2am in the morning!
I loved every single character in SUFFER LOVE — Hadley, Sam, Kat, Livy, Ajay, and even both of Hadley’s parents…all of them will make you feel ALL THE FEELS, I promise. From Ajay’s fantastic one-liners, to Sam’s quick wit and charm, to Hadley’s dad…even though I wanted to hate this man so much, some of the moments Blake wrote around him absolutely broke my heart.
SUFFER LOVE was such a me book and I can’t wait to have a final hardback copy sitting on my bookshelf, come May 3rd! Add this one to your TBR — better yet, go on and pre-order it now…I promise you won’t regret it!

SUFFER LOVE ARCs
Sixteen to Read author Ashley Herring Blake received her ARCs and they are beyond gorgeous–everything we would expect for this beautifully written YA!
SUFFER LOVE: Seventeen-year old Hadley St. Clair’s life changed the day she came home to a front door covered in slips of paper, each of them shouting the ugly truth about her father: Jason St. Clair is fucking my mother. Now, Hadley just wants her father to leave her alone. In fact, she wants everyone to stop expecting her to slip back into her old life, where a father is someone she can trust and romance is something that happens to real people, not just to characters in fairy tales. She knows how to handle herself–trust no one and feel nothing. She falls into a steady routine of ignoring her parents and messing around with nameless boys who help her forget.
Then she meets Sam, the new boy with a broken family and a little sister who adores him. Despite her efforts to shut him out, something in Sam feels familiar and even exciting. She might be willing to take a risk for a guy like him. Sam wants Hadley just as much as she wants him, even though he knows he shouldn’t. Because Sam has a secret that could ruin everything; a secret he’s been keeping since the day somebody taped dozens of papers to the St. Clair’s front door.
SUFFER LOVE is available for pre-order wherever books are sold. It will officially be in the world on May 3, 2016 but you can add SUFFER LOVE to your Goodreads TBR pile now. This is one you don’t want to miss!
