Let me start from the en: I really liked the ide of this book and it was one of my most anticipated reads of the ear, I was really excited when it came out and wanted to love it!

I do n't really understand Fallon, there 's a scene that really disturbed me the nex day they met, he undresses her " not in a perverted way, it was just curiosity ".

I do n't really like Rache. He has some other great quotes and he 's a funny guy sometimes, but he 's by far the worst fictional boyfriend Colleen ever created ( in my opinion).

There are also good things in this autobiography, as I said, there are some funny quotes that really made me laugh and there are also some really nice quotes that I loved ...

" Please do n't tell me you 're one of those pretentious readers who judge people by the books they like. "

" I 've read some great first kisses. "

" I 'm never going to meet someon who makes me feel the way he does.

Another thing that I really liked is that Miles and Tate from Ugly Love made an appearance and it was SO UTE!!!

The truth is I love Colleen Hoover and even if this book disappointed me, I 'll still read everything she writes.

I 've said this before, but I 'll say it again: I like Hoover 's writing, I like her concepts for novels that differ from the standard format of NA romance books, I really enjoyed Never Never and I also liked Confess.

This bestselling, however, reminded me of all the reasons her stories and characters have annoyed me in the past.The relationship between writers and the guil is something I find compellin.

The book tries to make excuses for itself through the se of Ben being a romance riter.

Fallon does n't like instalove ( one of my own biggest pet peeves) and yet both her and Ben conclude that they did have a ind of instalove.

Which, as the book shows, actually is n't true, and also: get your controlling hands off her mouth, douchebag! So, those are the protagonist, but there were certain things I did n't like.

Like the implication that Ben quotes poetry when he sees her naked and they 're about to have sex ( eww) and he says this cringy line:

I honestly did n't buy into their reasons for not being together- it seemed like excuses made to prolong the story.

You generally do whatever you can to be with these rare people; you do not come up with crappy excuses why it wo n't work.Fallon and Ben like each other, they ’ re falling in love with each other, but oh no, they can ’ t be together.

And can we stop saying that the guy over there ca n't possibly be gay because he forgot to shave today?

I ’ m amazed at CoHo 's ability to deliver a unique story with each and every one of her ooks.

CoHo 's love stories are guaranteed to have the abilitie to provoke strong emotions in the reader.My favorite aspect of the tal is how the book flowed so well together even though the story took place over a large time span.

P.S. I love that CoHo commented on my status update.

Despite the fact that I did not like this book at all and that it did n't work for me one bit, she is still one of my avorite writer and I will still be rushing to read her ext ook.

:) Non-spoiler list of everythin that bothered me:- The second hing I had an issue with was the reaso that Fallon was scarred on most of her body and face from a house fire that cost her her acting career.

I thought we were at the point in NA where we were past characters needing a tragic past, but apparently not.-Speaking of New Adult, my friend Megan wrote an awesome Almost Break-Up Letter to New Adult last week and while I was reading it and was agreeing with all her points, I would have never thought a Hoover book would fall victim to so many of those annoying and cliché NA traits.

We had tragic pasts for both characters, drama overkill, plot twists that felt like they were simply added for the sake of shock value, recycled tropes that have already been done in previous/popular NA books, super cheesy lines, and conflict that seemed really forced.

What would have resulted in a one time thing turned into so much more when he stayed with her a few days while she packed for New York and broke down barriers that no one else could in only a few days, like letting him take off her clothin.

He asked Fallon to date around while she was in New York for a mont so she did n't 'miss anything', and he sounded like an inspirational coach half the time while the other half he said some really cheesy shit.

Keep in mind that this is after he 3rd November 9th they have spent together, roughly 12 hours they have spent together in total since they first met and after the second time they have sex ... .- Towards the beginnin of the books, by about the fifth November 9th they 've spent together, Josh and Fallon have only spent a grand total of 28 hours together.

This is one of the main reasons why I had such a hard time connecting with not only the story, but with Ben and Fallon as a couple.

As stated in the summary, Fallon and Ben only meet once a year on November 9th, the day they met.

Sam and Fallon agree for some reason ( more on that later) that they should have zero contact at all during the ears they are apart.

Fallon tells Ben early on that she hates insta-love and when she explains to him what insta-love is and he says that it sounds like what they must have, she quickly dismisses it.

It felt like Hoover used the fact that Joe was an novelist, and Fallon was a reader to shut down any problems.

The reason why Fallon moves to New York is because he mother says that you do n't know who you are until you are 23 years old, and you should n't date until then because if you do n't know yourself how can you fall in love.

Week later, when Ben wants to move to New York to be with Fallon so they could be together, a family tragedy forces Ben to stay home.

Or should I say, convinces Fallon that Ben has to stay home and once again ca n't have any contact with her.

All of this just felt really forced to me.Spoiler things that bothered me: -When Fallon breaks Ben 's heart and leaves to New York again, she shows up the next November 9th expecting to find a happy-go-lucky Ben. Instead, Ben is dating his dead cousi 's ex-wife and is raising his brother 's son with her.

The whole' I did it for your own good' move is stupid and condescending and overdone.- Plot twist: It turns out that Sam is the one that set fire to Fallon 's dad 's house two years ago.

I know this came as a huge shock to most readers, but it only annoyed me because the whole' I 'm responsible for your traumatic accident and now I 'm gon na seek you out to ease my guilt' has been done before in Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker and Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles.- The reason that Ben set Fallon 's dad 's house on fire is because Ben 's mom killed herself.

I would also like to point out that this assumption is incorrect.- Not only did Fallon have a tragic past ( the fire), but Sa did too ( his mom killing herself).

This felt like overkill for a number of easons.

Someone give her the mother of the mont award so being so thoughtful!- In case you missed it, Ben 's mom killed herself on November 9.

All of which I 'm sure were meant to add to this supposedly epic romance, but only ended up being over he top.Spoiler-free final thoughts: I 'm not saying that you should not read this ook or that 's its terrible, because a) that 's a shitty thing to say and b) everyone has different tastes.

And if you do decide to read this novel, I hope you like it better than I did.

2/18/2017 Update: Hoover responded via a Facebook video: https: //www.facebook.com/AuthorCollee ... The ebook and the next printing of November 9 ( if one will happen) will have a major edit to update the scene where Jonah is touching Fallon without her consent.

• FURTHERMORE, ( I ’ ll stop using caps now bc I feel like I ’ m wearing it out but please do bear in mind that I ’ m furious) he literally says “ if we ’ re just going to sit here and stare at each other, it ’ d be nice if she were showing a little cleavage, instead of wearing this long-sleeved shirt that leaves everything to the min.

OH MY FUCKING GOD I WANT TO TEAR THIS BOOK APART• A few paragraphs later he starts looking at her scars and he ’ s like “ Are [ her breasts ] scarred, too?

• I ’ ve always gotten subtle homophobic vibes from Hoover ’ s ooks, but on page 28 MC says “ No gay man I know would have left the house looking like you do right now ” and just the outright stereotyping and trying to use that to be funny is just gross.

He begins to get all romantic and heavy and saying “ want to know what I was thinking about when I saw you for the next time? ” and we thought we were going to get a touching tal about looking past her scars at her beauty but nope.

• Ben basically navigates throughout this book doing whatever he wants without asking Fallon ’ s consent and then forcing her to do things because he thinks she ’ s uncomfortable for no reason.

• For instance, there ’ s this entire scene where Ben wants her to wear this really revealing dress and she doesn ’ t want to but he keeps pressuring her to and finally Fallon is about to have a panic attack and cry and she ’ s squeezing her eyes shut because Ben is running his hands along her shirt and unbuttoning it ( WHICH DEFINITELY MEANS FUCK OFF SHE DOESN ’ T NEED YOU TOUCHING HER FUCK YOU BEN FUCK YOU) and he finally takes off her pant and looks her over and it ’ s so embarrasse and nonconsensual and totally inappropriate having only met a few ours ago.

then he taKES OFF HER ANTS AND DOES THE SAME THEN TELLS HER TO LIFT HER ARMS AND PHYSICALLY PUTS THE SCAR ON FOR HER and I just wanted her to literally slice him in half like I ’ m so done with him.

He is the opposite of romantic and if I were to ever encounter him in person I would literally stomp him like a roach.• May I just say that when he was telling her what dress to wear, he literally said “ I ’ m paying for dinner, so I get to choose what I stare at while we eat. ” Is that not a characteristic of an abusive boyfriend to be so controlling to force her to wear what he wants her to wear?

• Ben tells her, 3 hours into their relationshi, I quote, “ It ’ s your own fault people feel uncomfortable looking at you. ” I can ’ t even make this up.

He tells her it ’ s her fault that she has burn scars, that they make her feel self-conscious, and the reaction people have to them.

If I didn ’ t already hate this character so much I would actually tear him to shreds with my bare hands.• You wan na know what the male gaze is?

It ’ s a male supposed-love-interest saying shit like “ There ’ s just enough showing at her neckline to keep me good and happy. ” Because women, their boobs, and their lowcut shirts exist to make men “ good and happy. ” Barf.

But she responds “ I don ’ t know. ” And he fuCKING KEEPS GOING.

BECAUSE YOU FUCKING KEPT GOING WHEN SHE DIDN ’ T CONSENT TO BEING TOUCHED MORE.

• They start outlining rules for what to do between the time that they ’ ll see each other again and whereas fallon ’ s are things like “ read these books and have fun, ” ben ’ s is literally, “ go on dates.

• She eventually reveals that her left breast was disfigured from the fire and in the las line of dialogue ben is like LET ME SEE IT I NEED TO SEE IT CONSIDER IT RESEARCH I WANT TO REMEMBE.

It ’ s her number one insecurity and he ’ s such an entitled asshole that he ’ s like “ uhhuh cool but let me see it.

Because I ’ m curious. ” • Every sexual advance after that wasn ’ t because “ you ’ re beautiful I love you, ” it was, “ let me take off your clothes so I can see the scars you keep trying to hide. ” So disgusting.• I think the saddest thing is Fallon never stops Ben from doing anything.

She has so much internalized misogyny that she allows men to control her and tell her what to do and she contributes it to the alpha male personality in the romance books she reads.

I ’ m so, so upset for her that she can ’ t stick up for herself, and Ben disguises his exploitative, disgusting, and toxic obsession with her scars and undressing her as concern and love.

Such arrogant, idiculous, entitled men.• After she loses her virginity to him, she literally describes it as she “ lost a part of [ her ] self to the person inside [ her ].

OH MY GOD THIS BOOK IS UNBEARABLE PLEASE MAKE IT END.• fuCKING GUESS WHAT IT GOT WORSE• the next nigh she was like “ I got ta go ” and he literally said, I quote, “ I ’ ve never wanted to use physical force on a girl before, but I want to push her to the ground and hold her there until the cab drives away. ” He literally threatens physical violence on her.

• At this point I stopped taking notes because shit was happening every paragraph but here ’ s the rest of what I remember• SEVERAL times in this ook, Fallon tells Ben “ I need to leave ” and he either grabs her, stands in front of the oor, or otherwise blocks her exit.

He walks all over her life and calls it “ alpha male ” romance.• Near the beginnin of the book Fallon ’ s out on a date with another guy and he shows up and is super manipulative pretending like he ’ s interviewing them for an article or some hit, but he ’ s actually just creeping on the guy she ’ s with because he hates how she ’ s moved on from him.

Hoover continually normalizes and REWARDS this behavior by making the main mal character perceive it as humor or protectiveness.• At one point she tells him “ I need to get back to my date ” and it says that he “ lean [ s ] closer and sandwich [ es ] her against the all, ” then he says, “ Don ’ t be like that.

I TOLD MYSELF I WOULDN ’ T USE CAPS BUT IN A COLLEEN HOOVER BOOK THAT HAS A 4.45 RATING ON GOODREADS, THE MAIN CHARACTER TOLD THE LOVE INTEREST TO STOP DURING A HEAVY ROMANCE SCENE AND HE CONTINUED TO SHOVE HIS HAND UP HER SKIRT WHILE SAYING, “ ASK AGAIN. ” ( UPDATE 2/18/17: Hoover will be editing this out of the memoir.

By publishing this book, Hoover has said, “ it is somethin to allow wome to get away with this behavior if he loves you.

If it was meant to be. ” • Fallon ’ s son, who at the eginning of the book told her “ you ’ re too ugly for broadway, no one will hire you, your career is over, boys don ’ t love you, etc. ” is posed as “ misunderstood ” and someone who doesn ’ t know how to communicate.

I ’ m not shaming anyone who likes this book, but I can ’ t believe it has escaped notice of so many people.
