ARC Review: Patch Up by Stephanie Witter

Summary: Skye followed her long time boyfriend to Seattle for their first year of college, but he dumped her after only a week. The relationship brought only pain and destruction in Skye's life, and yet, she can't bring herself to open up and live her life.

"What if I am already broken into pieces?"

She hates to be touched, hiding under her oversized shirts and behind her wild frizzy hair. Even her bubbly roommate can't reach her. And yet ...

"I'm the guy who knows how you can hurt so much that your insides feel like they're cut and bleeding."

The tall, handsome, and tattooed TA in her psychology class changes everything when he literally collides with her and confronts her. For the first time in a long time, she wants to try and open up to this guy whose dark, intense eyes can't hide his own pain despite his dazzling smile getting to her.

However, just when she's starting to live again, her ex-boyfriend comes back, breaking her time and time again, making it all the more complicated.

She wants to fight for herself and for this building thing with the TA, even when he pushes her away, but can two broken people patch each other up?

"I never thought colliding with someone could change lives, but it is possible."

**I received a copy in exchange for an honest review**

Patch Up was a really emotional read. Abusive stories are always really hard to read I think. But I've also found them to have wonderful character development and plot. And I definitely found that here. There was tons of emotional turmoil especially with Skye. I just felt so bad for her and wanted her to just stick up for herself and stop hiding but I understand that years of abuse made her think it was all her burden and no one else's.

I think my favorite part was how Skye and Duke met. She's in a psych class and he's a TA for the psych class. Who better to figure out something is wrong with someone else than Duke? And he could even tell right away that there was something going on with Skye and I just really, really liked that.

It was also nice that the plot wasn't predictable, at least to me. I was definitely surprised by lots of things that happened throughout the course of the story, and can I just say that the ending was so emotional that I had no idea how it would end!! I didn't think a hea could've been possible but of course I shouldn't have doubted a story with resilient characters.

One thing I didn't like was the back and forth fighting/ignoring/making up again aspect of the story. Otherwise I enjoyed it! 4.5 stars.

  11. Make sure you duck and take cover FIFA Mobile hack before reloading your weapon. Too often, gamers are killed while their characters are reloading right where the action is. It would be bad if you had this happen to you. Find a wall or building that you can hide behind, then reload as fast as you can. Some FIFA Mobile hile games can educate children. When buying games for kids, head toward those titles and stay away from violent games ro ones with otherwise questionable content. Look on the Internet for games that have positive feedback by other parents. Don't be afraid to lose. It is natural to want to play against opponents who are at or below your skill level. After all, it's no fun to constantly lose! There is, however, a major disadvantage to this strategy - there is no incentive to get better. When you are playing against people who are better than you, you will learn from your mistakes and be on their level in no time.

  13. Always look at the platform before buying a game for your computer. If you own a computer made by Apple, for example, you cannot run a PC game on your system. Particularly, if you aren't paying attention, it is easy to make this mistake. Invest an extra minute in the buying process to determine that you have the right version of the game. If you have a child that loves Fortnite hack games, make sure you set up some limits. Clearly express how much time a child can invest in one day and stick to it. You can also use hack Fortnite games as a reward when your child completes chores around the house. For example, you could set up a system where each chore they do gives them ten minutes of game time.
