REVIEW: Believe by Erin McCarthy


Title: Believe
Author: Erin McCarthy
Series: True Believers
Publication Date: January 21st 2014
Publisher: InterMix
Source: Netgalley
Robin used to be a party girl… until she got black out drunk and woke up in bed with her best friend's boyfriend. Now she's faced with being THAT girl, and couldn't be more disgusted with herself. She can't even tell her friends the reason for her sudden sobriety and she avoids everyone until she meets Phoenix—quiet, tattooed, and different in every way that's good and oh, so bad…
Phoenix is two days out of jail when he meets Robin at his cousin's house, and he knows that he has no business talking to her, but he's drawn to her quiet demeanor, sweet smile, and artistic talent. She doesn't care that he's done time, or that he only has five bucks to his name, and she supports his goal to be a tattoo artist.
But Phoenix knows Robin has a secret, and that it's a naïve dream to believe that his record won't catch up with them at some point. Though neither is prepared for the explosive result when the past collides with the present…

My Thoughts

I was always a big fan of Erin McCarthy. After I read True, I was so excited when I found out there was going to be a series and I could not wait to get my hands on it! And I have to say, BELIEVE was.....unbelievably REAL!

BELIEVE is Robin's story. We get to meet Robin, who's a party girl, or was. But one night, she made a huge mistake. Robin drinks, and she drinks a lot. But never would she drink so much that she would pass out and sleep with one of her best friends' boyfriend. We get to hear the story on her side, feel what she's feeling and see what she see's in herself. In my opinion, everyone has got a problem of themselves. And for Robin, she needs to face her problems, not run away from it. Because if she does, guilt will swallow her up whole.

And Phoenix. What can I say? Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix. Just add that name next to Tattoos and you'll get me. LOL! Phoenix is fresh out of jail, covered in tats (not that I'm complaining!) and was brought up in a very unstable upbringing. But even that doesn't stop him from being....him. In fact, his past just made him stronger, braver, and a man that he really is. But he has problems of his own. His mother was a drug addict, and no one ever showed him any affection. Until now. 

And then two worlds collides.

And these two worlds doesn't just fall in love, they help each other face their past. They teach themselves how to let it all out and deal with it without fighting or drinking. They're wrong for each other. But I guess opposites attract, eh?

BELIEVE, to me, was real. It entertained me and I loved every single moment reading it. And I can't wait to read SHATTER (book 4)!!

    Believe sounds amazing, June. I look forward to picking it up! :)

  2. You need to! But I suggest you pick up book 2 first, I haven't read book 2 and I was kinda confused with some of the characters. But nonetheless, you should pick it up! :D
