How To love- Book Review

Hello Everyone!
  So today I'm here to do a review on the most recent book I finished but I have to say it's taken me a while to finish this book but I will go into that later on in the post.
  So first of all I'll talk about the actual cover which I love as it's so bright and just I love the peachy orange and bold white writing I just think it fitted perfectly. My book was also like a matte texture so when you were holding the book it did feel weird but I kind of liked that about the book I'm not too sure if this is how the book is for every copy or if it's just this edition. So this is a contemporary but it's not the lovey dovey kind of story which I liked as the romance in this book was raw and real which made it a lot more easier for the reader to relate to- Like me. The main character was Reena which at the beginning of the book I didn't like her too much but towards the end of the book I was on her side one hundred percent and I wanted the best for her and Hannah which is her baby daughter. Sawyer was the ultimate 'Bad Boy' image which we get in most contemporaries but Sawyer was different I was on his side from the beginning and towards the end I had fallen in love with his character. This story follows Reena who has a young daughter and she is getting by on her own as her boyfriend and Hannah's dad disappeared whilst she was pregnant but he comes back for no reason what so ever and you see Reena dealing with this. I have to say the story was very confusing which is why I feel it took me a while to finish this as it took you from past to present with every chapter and I have to say in a way I did like that aspect as it gave you the back story of Reena and Sawyer's relationship but it also took you on a journey throughout the story which ended up with everything coming together in the end and you had no questions to ask. It just made it very hard to follow at times as you just kept following the story but you would get lost along the way which I had to keep backtracking chapters so I could remember the story so far. The story has so many twists and turns you just wanted to keep reading more and more and I just didn't want it to end.  I wont go into the plot too much as I feel this book is one to just go into blind which is what I did and I'm so glad I did but I would just say there's so many little plot twists that you can't help but want to find out more. So I did say the relationship between Reena and Sawyer was very raw and real and to me it really was as the relationship wasn't perfect and they had their ups and downs but they always came back together. Most people told Reena that Sawyer wasn't good for her but she loved him and he loved her and you could definitely get that from the story and I just thought it made the relationship more understandable. The ending for me wrapped everything up nicely but I will say I expected it to go a little different but I wont go into more detail as I don't want to spoil it. I would give this book 4/5 stars and would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a contemporary book or a good summer read but I would say when you read this you need to be invested to understand it fully.
Have you read this?
