Sixteen year old Bri comes from a wealthy family, allowing her an expensive pass into the popular crowd, though it never much mattered to her. She's on the basketball team and track and is the top in both.
Bri has everything a girl could want, but she longs for loving and emotionally available parents. She longs for a traditional family instead of the one she was gifted - cold and very distant.
Bri's parents pressure her to be the best at everything instead of just being the best that she can be. As a result of trying for the perfect life for her parents, Bri finds herself in an abusive relationship and pressured into doing what a lot of teenagers are pressured into doing.
When Bri becomes pregnant, her entire world is turned upside down and she has no idea who she can trust anymore. Bri struggles to find a place in this world for herself and for her baby - the baby that she is desperate to have and watch grow. Along the way, Bri is given an opportunity to completely change her life and the life of her child - but it may hinder the life of another... binding him to a future he was never meant to have, just for her. Bri is forced to grow and grow stronger as she fights for her baby and learns how to be a good mother - and remain a pure soul.'
First thoughts after…
Wow, I totally read this book in less than 10 hours! (It was that good)
How distracted did I get
Lean on Me is an addictive coming of age romance. I had a rough start but quickly fell in love with the story. Bri, I just want to wrap her up and take care of her. She's strong, sarcastic and loving. The type of person I'd love to have as a friend. She's been through and going through hell through the story. Matt, sigh….he's sweet, protective and a total alpha. He's easy to fall quickly in love with. Lean on Me is great for those that enjoy a little dark to their romance.
I give Lean On Me…
