Review: Survivor by Nicole Blanchard

Survivor by Nicole Blanchard

I knew falling in love with him was bad for us both, but I did it anyway.

For a brief moment, we had it all. Even though he was leaving to join the Marines and I had four years of college ahead of me, he was everything I ever wanted and didn’t think I deserved.

But real life has a way of dashing dreams—and that happy future we envisioned together? It disappeared at the hands of a monster.

Ten years have passed and I’m not the same naïve girl that believed in happily-ever-afters. When unforeseen events draw me back to our hometown and I find myself caring for my two teenage brothers, the last thing on my mind should be reconnecting with the hottie-turned-hero who I loved at seventeen.

As the past begins to repeat itself and old threats resurface, I’ll have to trust him with the secrets that tore us apart if I want a second chance at his heart.

My rating:
*spoiler free*

Honestly this thing was so quickly devoured that I barely remember it being read. Very fast read and great story! 

The book takes place in the past and the present in both Jack and Sofie's POV. 
Despite the prospect of years apart Sofie and Jack hope for a future together. Jack is leaving to join the marines and Sofie has four years of college ahead of her. They want to make the best of the time they have left before their years apart and the unknown future. However their time together and their future is taken away from them. 
Ten years later Sofie has to return to take care of her brothers. Jack and Sofie quickly discovers that despite the way things ended and the years apart they can't deny that there's still something there. However coming back to town means Sofie has to deal with her old demon especially when he comes back to haunt her.

When I first started I kept thinking okay uhhh what is going on, but as I read more and knew what was going on I just loved that beginning of the story cause it really pulled me into the story so I could find out what it was about. The story didn't get more dull at all after that it just became more interesting. I felt really bad for Sofie and what she had to go through and how that affected her life and her relationship not only to Jack, but her family as well. Despite that she did move on from what happened even though it meant running from home and the love of her life. After everything I really just hoped for the best for both of them. 

And bonus! Ben and Olivia from the previous book shows up as well! 
Overall a book just as good as the first one with a unique and original, emotional story. Good writing and another set of awesome characters.
