I Heart Books Review

The Art of Letting Go (A Happy Endings novella) by M.C. Brightly
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Just Let It Go!

In life we have two choices, to let her pain and hurt drag us down or to preserve and succeed no matter what obstacle is put in our path. I like to think I'll always chose the optimistic road, at least eventually. This story walks us thru a horrible childhood and to the letting go stage. And now a bit about the story...

Hartley doesn't think she can take it anymore, but she wakes up in a safe place. Some time later she meets Milo. She's only opened up to Jordan. Does she take the leap and trust another man?

Favorite passages:
- I can’t believe that I’m falling for a boy I know nothing about...
- “I want to continue. I need to let the pain and anger go. The only way for me to do that is to tell the story. Taking the power from them and giving it back to myself.”

All our lives we're taught not to talk to strangers and never to go anywhere with someone we don't know or trust. But what happens when that line between stranger and trusted adult is blurred?

In one day I had my heart broken and my entire life turned upside down all because I was naive enough to think this would never happen to me.

Now I lay here in this prison he's created for me and find myself saying, If only he had never kissed her...if only I had never decided to walk home...if only I never trusted him...I wouldn't be locked in this cold dark basement completely alone and wondering if this will be how my story ends?
