Olivia Barrett thought she had it all. A great degree, a great man, a great future.

But, things aren’t always what they seem.

After Olivia walks in on Evan Gallagher, her seven years plus boyfriend cheating on her with her roommate, she runs away to her safe haven…Davis Park, Fire Island.

That’s where she meets HIM.
Chase Remington. He’s everything you could possibly want in a man, and so much more. He’s sexy, he’s beautiful, and he wants her.

Can she get past her pain? Is Chase the right man for her? Or will Evan fight back.

This is part 1 of a series, with a steep cliffhanger. 

Dear readers, before you start this novel, I would like to give some advice!

Please put your kindles or whichever device you are reading this book with in a safe and secure place/holder.

Make sure nothing will happen to your devices even if it hits the wall/floor.

These are recommended advice because I do foresee readers throwing their reading device when they read till the STEEP cliffhanger at the end!

Honestly, I thought Drawn to You would be a novel where the girl leaves her ex and overcomes all obstacles with her new man and they would be happy! Obviously, my happy-ever-after mind did not register just how STEEP the cliffhanger would be!

I love how Olivia and Chase first met! It’s such a random chance of meeting! Chase is such a sweet guy, always so patient and understanding with Olivia.

Olivia’s best friend is definitely one of my favourite character! Her personality is so cheerful and humorous, and she looks out for Olivia. I trust Brenda’s instinct. Honestly, she’s probably the only character I still trust after the end of the novel.

Olivia is rash. Or at least, I think she made a rash decision. Though, that’s what people do when the people they trust did something to break that trust. That is actually one of the most important thing about this novel.

Drawn to You, mixed with a little fiction, brings out the emotions of people in real life when life hits them hard and the people they trust betrays them.

I have faith in Chase. I don’t think he would do what Olivia think he did.

Two major characters I don’t like. The most obvious would definitely be Evan and the second is Olivia’s mom. I really tried not to have any negative feelings towards Olivia’s mom but its just so hard when she’s partly the reason why OLIVIA MADE THAT RASH DECISION!

What makes Drawn to You stands out is not just the novel showing people’s reaction towards betrayal, but also about how love is never an easy thing to forget even when you’re heartbroken. Sometimes, you just need that one person to be there and support you!

This is a beautiful novel that I would highly recommend every readers to read it!

*Thank you to the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.
