    While this story has a lot of similarities between it and another of Ms Pace s novels, Beast , which is a book I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this is still a unique read in itself The characters personalities are still quite different Some of their circumstances are different as well.If there was one thing that I do wish wassimilar to Beast with this novel, it would be the length of the novel, as well as getting Brian s POV I felt I missed out on a lot of really getting to know him I wanted t While this story has a lot of similarities between it and another of Ms Pace s novels, Beast , which is a book I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this is still a unique read in itself The characters personalities are still quite different Some of their circumstances are different as well.If there was one thing that I do wish wassimilar to Beast with this novel, it would be the length of the novel, as well as getting Brian s POV I felt I missed out on a lot of really getting to know him I wanted to hear his voice, see his reactions through his own words Not just according to Hayden s POV While these two have great chemistry together, the places they are both at in their lives allows them to be open to one another, I still wish I could have gotten Brian s perspective as well, while these things unfolded Not to belittle the growth of Hayden s character or the issues that she was fighting through, but Brian s issues not only affected him internally externally, they affected people close to him greatly A ripple effect of sorts So I would have loved to see a broader scope with him, before witnessing he Hayden coming full circle together If we would have gotten this then I would have gottentime with them as well I love these two together They make me giddy And Brian just has this thing about him that leaves a chick like But I do so love their story I love the pacing of this book the message that it brings with it It s not only realistic, but it s quite touching erotically hot And the ending was just beautiful I couldn t put it down.I would highly recommend this read Keep it up Ms Pace

    The Throwaway Year is the first book I ve read by Pepper Pace even though I have a good number of them I buy her books because without having read anything of hers before now, I can see from her book synopses that she has a unique way of looking at the world, particularly this funny thing called love Her main protagonists are always people who are overlooked and underestimated, who are too plain, too damaged or in some ways what society might consider too insignificant to find and keep a great The Throwaway Year is the first book I ve read by Pepper Pace even though I have a good number of them I buy her books because without having read anything of hers before now, I can see from her book synopses that she has a unique way of looking at the world, particularly this funny thing called love Her main protagonists are always people who are overlooked and underestimated, who are too plain, too damaged or in some ways what society might consider too insignificant to find and keep a great love in their lives Carving out such a brave niche in the world of romance takes some doing, so that alone makes me respect her as writer.Now, where The Throwaway Year is concerned, it s ironic that I would read this one first because in many ways, without knowing for sure, I get the sense that this might beconventional than the stories she usually writes The H and h have challenges that make them far from the stereotypical romance novel couple, but they re also very much like people I think most of us might know, so my instinct is that their story might not have been the very best showcase for this writer s talent Still, I appreciated that she showed the journey of a woman to love herself and hence to be able to expect and accept love, and the journey of a man to forgive himself and remake his life What I most enjoyed though, was not the relationship story, but that of the way the main protagonists interacted with secondary characters It felt like I was reading an author of contemporary women s or literary fiction who was almost artificially trying to give the romance audience a formula that they have come to expect from her There was texture and detail, and a writer s instinct and enjoyment that leaps off the page when she was describing the quirks of the secondary characters that I didn t feel as much of in the romance arc Having said that, I ll restate my disclaimer, that I haven t read anything else from Pepper Pace and so, may not be the best judge.Still, this book wasthan enough to stoke my interest about the rest of her work, and make me want to dig into them I highly recommend it.Nia Forrester

    Yeah, um, no This totally lost me somewhere in the middle The only reason I accorded two stars is because the beginning was really good Probably about 40% in everything became utterly ridiculous My turnoffs include the stilted prose, the saccharine relationship, the very technical and unsexy sex scenes, the pink and purple penis, the IRR friendships, the Todd daddy usurping, the affirmations, the loss of Hayden s initial drive as the relationship comes to be the total focus, the speed at wh Yeah, um, no This totally lost me somewhere in the middle The only reason I accorded two stars is because the beginning was really good Probably about 40% in everything became utterly ridiculous My turnoffs include the stilted prose, the saccharine relationship, the very technical and unsexy sex scenes, the pink and purple penis, the IRR friendships, the Todd daddy usurping, the affirmations, the loss of Hayden s initial drive as the relationship comes to be the total focus, the speed at which the relationship developed, the codependency, the heroin I have a serious, serious, SERIOUS problem with drugs, and ex heroin addicts are not appealing I was highly disturbed Why does this author pair her heroines with the most broke down guys I get that both of them were fighting their way back to themselves, but drug addiction and theft is on a whole other level I d say it s incomparable to obesity and a poor relationship, but I truly see the point Anyway, the end is also highly unrealistic, sickeningly sweet, and atrociously done while being replete with grammatical errors Not for me Ugh.In fact, I concede that this author isn t for me, period I never quite like her books

    This was an amazing read There were moments where I identified with Hayden the way she felt about herself, her relationships, interaction with her best friend, and the things she felt she needed to do to get right with herself I loved reading about her transforming herself from the beginning to the end, not only mentally, but physically I also enjoyed reading the positive affirmations written throughout the book Reading this has left me feeling great
