Mini Mash-Up: Anonymous + Reflect Me

Pages: 205
Source: Kindle E-Book
Elle Saunders is a train wreck. Everyone makes mistakes but she made one of the worst. She doesn't want her life back on track she wants to forget. But those plans come to an end when she meets someone else failing at life.
Hart Allen, he's handsome and smooth and knows just the right things to say to keep people at a distance. He wants to save everyone but himself. He spends most his time locked in rehab, and the other half finding ways to go right back when he's not. But when he meets Elle things change, he is determined to help her.
He has no way of knowing that for once he might not be able to talk himself out of his latest mistakes. He has to face them.

This book, let me just say that the feels were really overflowing. The story follows Elle Saunders who is forever guilty with the deed of killing her best friend in a drunk driving accident. She's sent to rehab and wants nothing to do with life anymore. There, she meets Hart Allen who literally forces her to get back on her feet. Despite struggling against him, Elle soon finds herself on the road to recovery. After getting out of rehab, there's a lot of things to address. She can't face Stephanie's (bff) parents, old friends, anybody in fear of judgement and rejection. Then Hart shows up and slaps some sense into her. Not literally of course. What Hart doesn't know is that every minute he spends helping Elle, he's also journeying down that healing path even if he doesn't want to save himself. This story is so beautiful in addressing two broken people holding each others' hands and leading each other down the path to love, redemption, and healing. Definitely recommend!!

If you're looking for a story about a sweet, innocent virgin who rides off into the sunset with a reformed bad boy, then you're looking in the wrong place.
Some people don’t get a happily ever after. Molly Scott is one of those people, and she knows it. With the kind of past that she has, and the secrets that she holds, she knows that even if she found Prince Charming, he wouldn’t want her. She refuses to dwell on her less than ideal situation though. This is her life, no point in complaining.
Logan Wade had his life planned out, until all his dreams came crashing down around him. Now, he’s come back to the town he swore he would never see again to start fresh. He has no plans to ever settle down again, that’s how he ended up back here in the first place. 
When Molly and Logan meet, they are forced to rethink the lives they thought they knew and the futures they were so sure they wanted. Suddenly, Molly wonders if there is a better life outside of the hell she has built for herself, and Logan begins to rethink his resistance towards settling down again. 
They say love conquers all, but Molly and Logan are about to find out that sometimes love just isn’t enough.

Oh. My. Freaking. Goodness. This book was so amazing and heartfelt that you all need to go get it now. Okay, let's get started. First off there is a lot of baggage that comes with this book. Molly Scott, our lovely MC, is in an abusive relationship with a SOB whose name I don't care to remember. He's also the father of her adorable baby Lyric who I am hopelessly in love with. (She's so cute!) The book addresses Molly's fears of stepping out of that relationship and follows her on her journey to being whole again after being ripped apart for several years. The story is told from Molly and Logan's perspective which I think gives you a really round view of the story and the characters. Molly sees Logan as a prince, someone so high up that he'd be completely shattered if he got too close. Logan sees Molly as a bird with a broken wing, beautiful and in need to care and love, but once healed, will be able to soar towards the sky. The romance is absolutely adorable, I loved the characters (except that SOB), I loved the story, everything was so cute and touching, it was seriously an amazing read. I also had a huge fangirling moment at the end because it relates to the title and it was like a huge light bulb going off. So yes, go read this, definitely recommend it because it was really good. :)
