I Liked It!
I’m a huge fan of Ella Fox’s writing, so it wasn’t a surprise to me that I Don’t was a hit and that I fell in love with Ava and Mateo‘s story!
I will admit, I wasn’t sure what exactly I was going to get into with this book, the blurb had me intrigued, and as I started reading it, I was drawn to Ava’s character, but wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Mateo, but don’t worry, he grew on me! These two definitely have an undeniable connection, but something made Ava run, and as the story progresses we get to see into the past and what brought these two together, and the undeniable bond and love that these two share, which only makes it more confusing as to why they are apart now.
Watching Ava try to fight off Mateo and her feelings for him throughout this book and not knowing why was hard. As I started to see how much he truly does love her and how he never really was away from her even though she pushed him away, I wanted to strangle her for pushing him away. The love this man has for her is undeniable and he would do and has done anything to prove his love for her. I loved watching the sneaks into the past and seeing these two find each other and how close they became, everyone knew they belonged together and was so accepting of them. Seeing how much they survived together, and everything they’ve been through solidified in my head that they belonged together, so I couldn’t figure out what made her run. When it was finally revealed, I understand why she let that day be forgotten and wanted to just forget, but I am still so angry with her for pushing Mateo away!
This was a really beautiful story about love, redemption, forgiveness and finding your soulmate. It had times where I wanted to scream, cry, and also times where I was fanning myself with my Kindle because Ava and Mateo are just HOT together. Their love for one another, past, present and future is undeniable and EPIC!
I truly enjoyed this story, but I just felt that the ending was a bit too rushed. Since this is a series with each brother getting their own story, I’m hoping that we will get to see more of Ava and Mateo in future books, but I would have liked to have seen more of Ava and Mateo after the big reveal. I do highly recommend adding this one to your TBR list! I couldn’t put it down!
