      Lilith Rose has nearly everything she could want fame, money, glory She s the lead singer in an uber famous band But it is not what people think it is The things that go on behind the scenes are enough to drive a person to do horrible things Sick of it all, Lilith turns on a live video stream to the the world what really happened In order for me to treat this novel to the kind of review it needs, I will have to include spoilers Read on at your own peril I am not sure how to respond to 23 27 I ha [...]

      I received this as an ARC from AuthorI will say that I liked the book and it did touch on some serious topics, suicide, racism, self confidence, depression I can never say what the person who thinks that suicide is the only way out is feeling or thinking, but I completely believe that it is one of the most selfish things that anyone could do So when the MC decides that she is going to kill herself because other people have rooted themselves in her head and forced her to feel like crap about hers [...]

      Raw, emotional, and I couldn t put it down Without any spoilers, it is tough to share my deep love of this book I felt every emotion all the Love, the hopelessness, and the pain of Lilith and Alec I cried, I clapped, and I yelled while reading I suffer from depression and found HL Roberts writing very true to the despair Lilith and Alec would struggle with.When love is true love, the interference of outsiders has very real ramifications A quick read full of a roller coaster of emotions Add to yo [...]

    11. Hannah Owens on said:

      This book is a diverse read, but it s also than that It s raw and emotional, and real It will break your heart, and in the next sentence have you laughing It is a book about cyber bullying, suicide, and suicide prevention While the characters are fictional, their story is true for many I found it easy to connect with the characters Anyone who has suffered from depression can connect with Lilith, and anyone who has loved someone with depression can connect to Alec Or maybe you can identify with [...]

    12. Lissa Hawley on said:

      This is not a comfortable book A lot of the situations are a bit too raw for my tastes I am a fantasy girl at heart, and I need my heroics and happily ever afters.And while the story did ultimately end on a positive note, it isn t the sort of story I would seek out for myself.However, given Colleen Hoover s legions of fans, I do think it is the kind of book many others would enjoy.There are some typos scattered here and there throughout, but not enough to distract overly from the plot.

      Where to begin about 23 27 It s phenomenal, it s wonderful, and it s nothing like books currently on the market In talking with Heather since before the cover reveal, I had no clue what the book would be about other than what she told me So I kept trying to figure out what books it was like, and at first I threw out some titles and she agreed yeah I can see that, but after reading it it s incomparable Heather writes the main characters to be so relatable, Lilith isn t overly fake or dramatic or [...]

      SPOILERS AHEAD YOU VE BEEN WARNED If you don t pay attention, you don t see exactly what the deal with this story is and you just wonder what the hell is wrong with them Then, read a small paragraph that puts the word racist , and the entire thing makes sense in chapter 5 Yep Well, it did for me, but I had to reread some chunks of the story previous to that so I could understand it It was just weird, plain and simple The story is from two points of view, and I enjoy that most of the time, but th [...]

      Lilith and Alec are members of a band United Misfits Theirs was a whirlwind romance, not too popular with the music executive high ups or, apparently, many of their fans The novel begins with a depressed Lilith livestreaming to her fans, telling them about the anger and pain she still feels over her and Alec s breakup The livestream confession takes a terrifying turn when it is revealed that Lilith plans to kill herself Now it is a race against time to save her And Alec, understanding the truth [...]

      They say don t judge a book by its cover 23 27 is the exception Not only is the cover beautiful, but it fits the story wonderfully Going into the story I was a little weary on how the storyline would play out given that it is a book about suicide and everything is being viewed on a live stream , but the I read, the I was less weary and intrigued with the story and its characters 23 27 is a diverse, socially relevant, genuine, and just overall fantastic read The main character Lilith Rose is f [...]

      ometimes when I sit down to write a review, I don t really have an idea on what I should say This is normally because my thoughts are so scattered about a particular book Today, that book is H L Roberts 23 27 Summarising the book up in one word would result in a strong use of the word emotional.The story plot was something that I wasn t expected I was aware from the get go that the book was a romance, but I didn t realise it would be one of those stories that made you ball your eyes out It remin [...]

      This story is raw It s emotional, and it takes no prisoners It s takes the fantasy of being a super famous rockstar, and shatters that dream with all the dirt and real tragic things that hides beneath the shiny little surface It hits the topics of depression and suicide and gives them a voice to be heard, and throws in a little bit of love as well I couldn t put this book down It had me trapped in its clutches from the very beginning The story draws you in, and the characters make you stay This [...]

      I was given a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review.So the story is all about Alec and Lilith who are forced apart by their dastardly record company Lilith is forced into a shomance with Markus and after two years of not being able to be with the man she truly loves, she wants to end it all.Now, romance is not my thing, as British person, I feel the genre contains far too many messy emotions , but I ended up being quite surprised by this book It nearly had in tears on several occasi [...]

    26. Jane Curry on said:

      TBH when I first started this book, I was expecting a 13 Reasons Why but with a band It s not.The MC tries to commit suicide, and lists a bunch of reasons, but it boils down to her dealing with depression and not knowing how to handle it So yes, she makes stupid and confusing and counter intuitive choices, because that s really what happens to people dealing with anxiety and depression.It was real and honest To soften the blow of this hard time, we are given the romance aspect of Alec s characte [...]

    27. Ava Wood on said:

      Let me say, the first half of this book was AMAZING I couldn t put it down I loved the way the highs and lows kept you invested in the story I had to know what happened next where Alec and Lilith would end up But when I hit that halfway point, I was surprised to only be halfway through The second half of the book was good I still wanted to know what happened, but I almost felt like the first half could have been an entire book all on its own and the second half could have been a intense sequel [...]

    28. Primrose Passage on said:

      This was an emotional book From the beginning to quite literally the end I was torn between what to rate it because I loved yet hated the events all at once I know a handful of people who have experienced depression while the other had no clue how to help the person deal with it And to be honest, you won t know because you haven t experienced it Alec and Lilith had been through so much together that I wasn t sure what the outcome would be during the entire story I cried during parts all while my [...]

    30. Gayle Noble on said:

      This is a book of two halves The first half is spellbinding reading It deals with some pretty heavy stuff depression, suicide and you literally HAVE to know what s going to happen I read it in about 50 minutes The second half contained two characters that I would have dearly loved to give a good shaking and tell them to talk to one another Good grief, they were frustrating The cover is stunningly good.I received an ARC from the author and I am voluntarily giving an honest review I would say that [...]
