Review: Ever since I read Deeper in the beginning of the year, I've been dying to get my hands on this book. I fell in love with Robin York's writing and I loved the message this book sent to readers. But then I started reading reviews for it and they got me a bit nervous; what if I didn't end up loving this book as much as the first book? It seems like there are quite a few mixed reviews out there and I was becoming scared that I would join the people who didn't like this book. But finally I got over my preservation and decided to finally pick this up.
If there is any gif that could perfectly explain West and Caroline's situation in this book, it's the gif above. Things are not easy for both of them in this book and their relationship is tested throughout the book. Caroline is a strong force in Harder which I loved because she was standing up for herself and fighting for what she wants-both West and her issue with her ex.
West is going through a lot in this book and he definitely messes up along the way. I was pretty mad at first about the way he was acting but I also understood where he was coming from. Life has never been easy for him and just when things were finally looking up, his past is dragging him back down.
I enjoyed Harder, but not as much as Deeper. Deeper, for me was (and still is) one of my all time favorite books for the year. Everything about it was amazing and I remember finishing it and having this excited feeling because I finally found a 5 star book. Harder, while very good, there was just something about it that kept me from falling gaga over it like Deeper.
The ending was great but I can't help but still have some questions about West's past but overall most things were wrapped up.
