Memphis is a kind boy with a sensitive side that I liked . He is considerate and sweet without lacking an inner strength. Liv is a tough girl who stands up back again even when she is pushed down. She is smart and logical. At the beginning I couldn’t understand all this resentment she had for her family but when things were unveiled I saw why she was so guarded.
Although there was romance in the story ,for me it was missing the extra something. I couldn’t really feel why they liked each other. Circumstances bring them together but I wanted to see more of their attraction. I couldn’t really connect with the characters although I liked them.
Also there is a twist towards the end that it was a little unrealistic for me so I struggled to understand where it was going.
Memphis is a book about fighting for love and that’s the best reason for something to knock you out!
