Review ~ Love Nouveau by BL Berry ~ JMAC



The only thing inevitable in love
is despair.

I knew from the start that he would wreck me.
Nothing could have prepared me for the day he walked into my life ...
or the day he walked out of it.

I self-destructed.

All that remained was a shell of the girl I once was.

And I don't know if I'll ever recover.
Love Nouveau was a great book.  My emotions were all over the place while reading.  I love a book that can make me feel so happy I can't stop smiling, and in the next breath it tore my heart out and broke it into tiny pieces.  Yeah, that's what Love Nouveau did to me.
As we all know, I love a good love story.  Love is not always rainbows and sunshine.  A lot of hurt, pain, tears, and sweat go into "love". That is what I loved most about Love Nouveau, BL didn't write a sappy love story.  Boy meets girl they fall in love, get married, have babies, the end.  Nope, BL went through real feelings.  Situations can happen that can ruin a relationship, that doesn't mean you don't love that person any less, just sometimes it's better to let go, rather than suffering.  Their were so many aspects to Love Nouveau, many ups and downs, A LOT of surprises, and some heartache.
Another thing I really liked about this book, was that their were many quotes I loved.  I am a huge quote whore, and when I see a great quote I can't help but highlight it!
My favorite quote in the book was "Whoever said love hurts had it entirely wrong.  The act of loving someone is never what hurts. That part of love is beautiful and amazing and liberating. It makes life electric and vibrant. It makes you the best possible version of yourself.  It's when the person you love falls short of your expectations that drive the stake relentlessly through your heart.  That is the part that hurts the most."
Goodness, isn't that just such a true, heartbreaking statement?
Overall Love Nouveau was a great read.  I know this review is pretty vaigue but I don't want to ruin it for those who haven't read it.  BL you did a great job, I can't wait for book 2 :)
