I never read a Colleen Hoover book before, you ask yourself why did she start with this one. A Wattpad story that was written in bits and pieces over time? Well I can tell you I am glad I started with this one. The subject matter hit a little close to home. Things I refuse to talk about and what a lot of people probably don’t know. I also have no plans to explain it all in a review so lets move on and just say, I totally understand Sloan why you stayed and did what you did.
Sloan is in a bad place, Asa is completely messed up and Carter is the good guy. I actually liked each character. Even with all the crap Sloan is going through I felt she had a good head on her shoulder and she was a very strong character. A lot of what she was doing was for her brother, so I get that and I understand how scary it must be to be involved with a lunatic like Asa. This story was told in Sloan, Asa and Carter’s POV and I loved, with all my heart loved, that you got to see inside Asa’s head. It was so f’d up and he made me so very angry. I was honestly on the edge of my seat when every I read reading in Carter or Sloan’s POV. I was panicked for them and I might have had a nervous breakdown at some point in the middle of this book.
At the book comes to the end you get a lot of Carter, Asa, Sloan, Prologue, Epilogue, etc. I thought must of this really gave you a well rounded story however, I also felt it may have been a bit to much. I know this was something she wrote to help her with writers block, so I see why it might have had so many “chapters” after the Epilogue. I actually enjoyed them, just one I could have done without. It was a little hard to read.
Too Late was amazing, I really felt the emotions, fear, stress, love, sympathy, everything this book had. I laughed at the game they play (snot out loud laughed) and cried at the pain. This book pulled me in so many direction. I know some of her other books are nothing like this one but after reading this I am a total fan of her. I love how she didn’t hold back, you got the raw view of an abusive person, who sees nothing wrong with what they are doing and the victim that has to deal with so much and cant escape. I really liked this book, I know it warns you in the synopsis but I will warn you also, it has a LOT of triggers so please read with caution. Highly recommend!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
