LISA'S REVIEW: Enough (Briana Pacheco)

Enough (Enough #1)

by Briana Pacheco

Emily Vasquez can say that her life was, and still is, far from perfect. She never wanted the attention, the pity or the heartbreak so she kept the secrets inside where no one will ever find them. Where she can lock them away and forget.

Emily's life turns upside down just when it just started to become bearable and the only upside is the one guy to catch her interest since the summer--Alex Payne. Fate brought them together and Emily is not passing it up. Even after something truly heartbreaking happens and she is left broken and alone, feeling worthless and scared.

Love, family, friendship, secrets and loyalty are all put to the test in the first book of the Enough Trilogy. With a best friend who is hiding something major and people not seeming who they are, Emily must decide what to do next. Just how far is a girl willing to go when people she loves starts to get hurt? And how much can she take before breaking completely and not feeling like she's enough?

WARNING: Due to heavy subject matter and mature content, this book is recommended for ages 17+

Note to reader: The near-rapes talked about in the book are explained if you follow through with the other two books in the trilogy. - Briana

I liked this book but at times it was too much. I liked Emily but at times I didn't. This book brought out a lot of emotion and that is why I give it a 4 star rating. I do love the development of Emily's character. She seem to really grow and I look forward to reading about her in book 2. The beginning was great. It really set the book up and made me want to read even more. I love that this book kept me turning pages even through the unthinkable scenarios! Amazing writing here and I am so happy I got the chance to read it! Looking forward to reading on!

About the Author
Briana Pacheco hates referring to herself in third person so let's start off with I'm the author of the Enough Trilogy and more books to come in the future. I'm from Boston and a wannabe explorer so one day I'll travel the world. So far, that's only happening when I write but I'm not giving up just yet. I love coffee, music and books and I have an obsession with tattoos and accents. Sadly, I have neither so I make my characters have them instead. I love hearing from my readers so please don't be shy and stalk me.
