Drunk Girl (Lyrics and Love #2) by Samantha Lind
Beautiful, broken, and abandoned.
The second I see her in my bar,
With cover charge stamps plastering her hands,
I know what I have to do.
Take her home,
Get her into bed,
Where I know she’ll be safe.
I do exactly that.
Leaving her keys and my number,
As I lock the door behind me.
She deserves more,
So much more.
Shattered, vulnerable, and alone,
Trapped in a lifetime of hurt,
Trying to break the cycle.
But he came in,
From my circumstances.
Showing me compassion,
Proving I am so much more.
More than just a pathetic drunk girl.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a sweet story, all about overcoming adversity, and how having that one person stand by you while you achieve your dreams makes it all worth it! I absolutely fell in love with Ashley and Nick, right from the beginning, and their story is a refreshing change from the drama filled books that litter the book shelves today. Don’t get me wrong, life isn’t smooth sailing for these two, but their story is filled with the love and happiness that we expect from this author!
Ashley has had a pretty chaotic upbringing, and her adulthood so far hasn’t been all that great either. Brought up by a single mother, who struggled to take care of them, she knows what it means to be poor. But despite that, she was happy. Now being an adult, has been one bad relationship after another. She’s pretty much lost hope of a good guy being left out there. Until Nick.
Nick is one of those guys. Hard working, not afraid to take a chance to achieve his dreams, he hasn’t really had the time or inclination to start a relationship. Until Ashley.
This book is exactly what I needed right now. A reminder that love doesn’t have to be complicated. Ashley and Nick are perfect together, right from their first meeting. I can’t help but love how well they fit together. I enjoyed their story, and think that it is one that many readers will also enjoy!
