Title: Patch Up
Author: Stephanie Witter
Genre: New Adult
Publisher: Anchor Group
Publication Date: September 16, 2013
Due to some shocking scenes, this novel is not intended for readers under 18.
Skye followed her long time boyfriend to Seattle for their first year of college, but he dumped her after only a week. The relationship brought only pain and destruction in Skye’s life, and yet, she can’t bring herself to open up and live her life.
“What if I am already broken into pieces?”
She hates to be touched, hiding under her oversized shirts and behind her wild frizzy hair. Even her bubbly roommate can’t reach her. And yet …
“I’m the guy who knows how you can hurt so much that your insides feel like they’re cut and bleeding.”
The tall, handsome, and tattooed TA in her psychology class changes everything when he literally collides with her and confronts her. For the first time in a long time, she wants to try and open up to this guy whose dark, intense eyes can’t hide his own pain despite his dazzling smile getting to her.
However, just when she’s starting to live again, her ex-boyfriend comes back, breaking her time and time again, making it all the more complicated.
She wants to fight for herself and for this building thing with the TA, even when he pushes her away, but can two broken people patch each other up?
“I never thought colliding with someone could change lives, but it is possible.”
Wow! Patch Up takes a lot out of you emotionally. Stephanie Witter is good at describing the feelings and emotions of the characters, especially Skye.
Both of the main characters are well developed but so broken and so immature. I just wanted to shake some sense into them! I’m not a fighter so it’s hard for me to understand people who have frequent fights. I do understand that that was their way of dealing with pain, however, which is common.
As I was reading this book, I kept thinking it just has too much drama, yet I had a hard time putting it down. So I guess it that, although it did have a lot of drama, it made for a good (and emotionally exhausting) read.
The issues of abuse, alcoholism, grief, and depression, and how some people cope with them, are all addressed in Patch Up. The characters don’t deal with them in the healthiest of ways, but things are heading in the right direction for them by the end of the book.
I recommend Patch Up for adult readers. Available on Amazon.
