About this deal

It was a bunch of high school drama and gossip that was just getting passed around for like half of the book. The whole point was to see how she heals and how he grovels, apologizes and realizes his mistake but we only get that for one chapter and then it skips the epilogue, which time skipped four years (hence the book title) but we literally missed all the important details that happened between them. I felt so bad for Becca because those who “suppose” to care about her turn their backs on her soon as they “thought” she cheated on Ryan… I felt that the ones closest to her “Ryan, Jake, even Ryan parents, even their friends at Cal State… should’ve known that Becca wouldn’t do that to Ryan… they all were blind by stupidity… literally was…. Most romance books put the heros pain/issues over the heroine 90% of the time, so it's not a surprise this book did it, it was just more egregious because of the triggering subject matter.

The author could have taken a real chance to show the struggles between a couple when one person is raped. And when she did, my heart tore into pieces again, watching everything that she put up to be broken in to pieces left for only her to pick up. I wasn't completely blown away by the story itself at the time but I certainly enjoyed it enough to read it in one sitting and immediately move on to this sequel.When he finally gets it together (only after other people tell him that she had been raped) he moves to be closer to her to “be there for her”. And the complete HYPOCRISY when he was literally having sex with the whole town but as soon as the MC gets near a guy he slut shames and humiliates her and proceeds to give a half ass apology. I found the first book in the series full, predictable and with really juvenile, unlikeable characters and I wasn’t going to bother reading this one.

Four Doors Down was cute, a lighthearted but angsty high school romance about former best friends turned enemies with unsolved feelings between them.

I speak of it as a woman and I speak of it as a psychologist who has to deal with such matters day after day. than we jump 5 years later and Becca is still traumatized by the rape and not really dating but when she does, RYAN meets the guy to check him out even though it kills him and hurts his feelings. Miscommunication was just a plot point to have the hero be cruel to create angst, and all we got out of it was one scene where he cried, not worth it. The constant repeating of "these are my best friends" "we've known each other forever" "he's the best looking guy I know" we get it girl, we get it.
