"Tonight was so much worse than anything before it. Tonight he didn't stop after the first slap.

At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved — and needed. Ann can't recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor's rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything — and everyone — in its path.
This evocative slideshow of flashbacks reveals a heartbreaking story of love gone terribly wrong.

My Thoughts:
First off this book was hard for me to get through because of how emotional draining it was to read what Ann was going through with her relationship with Connor. I don't know how to describe my thoughts on But I Love Him by Amanda Grace. I've seen domestic violence, so I felt as if  I was reading parts from my childhood. Amanda Grace did an amazing job of having the reader go through the abuse physically and emotionally. This book isn't for the light hearted. There is swearing throughout the story, however given the subject matter it was needed.

I gave this a 5/5 stars, I'm still thinking about it right now. Check it out. Happy Reading, Ashley
