Take my heart and pull it in all the different and painful directions you can Colleen Hoover because you do that to me every time I read your books anyway. To be more specific - my heart is still sour from everything November Nine made me read and feel through.

This book was so heartbreakingly-beautifully romantic, that every time this story threw a punch to my soul with its unexpected revelations, I felt like weeping.

All the characters were so interesting – especially Benton James Kessler. He was so sweet and so passionate and understanding and Oh My Lord, why can’t most men be as sweet and understanding and as accepting as him? Why are most of them outright stupid?

Yep, I’m calling most men outright stupid because I know 70% of my readers are all women, and almost all of them will nod their heads in agreement that, most men – in fact – are really stupid.

The plotline of November Nine was so fascinating; I was looking forward to the next chapter even before I had finished the previous chapter. If you haven’t started reading books by Colleen Hoover yet, then this is where you can start – I’m definitely sure you’ll come out with a sour and satisfied heart after you finish reading it. Once you do – find me, so we can weep together.

I did find the first half of the book - more specifically – the concept of the characters and how they met and instantly fell into a deep and trusting connection, felt a lot like the beginning from the book Confess by Colleen Hoover. But once I read through that part – the book was so freakin’ unique I absolutely loved it.

I’ll give November Nine 5/5 stars. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

*Spoilers Alert*

I got a lot of something from Reveal Me that I didn’t get in Defy Me - more of Kenji and Nazeera, and I am just too excited to see where it all goes between them. Also, the cliffhanger at the end of this novella was UNBEARABLE! I can’t wait to read Imagine Me.

3.5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐/5

🚨 Spoiler Alert! 🚨

⚠️ Look Away! ⚠️

I ended up loving Defy Me just as much as I had ended up disliking Restore Me. Right now, I’m so happy with the book that I think I’m going to roll down and just cry. IT WAS PERFECT! It had the perfect amount of suspense, mystery, sadness, happiness and romance, so much so that I had to stop between chapters to sink them all in.

I loved how each of the characters developed themselves beautifully; I loved how they changed into the better version of themselves; I loved how Aaron and Ella got back together - I basically loved everything in Defy Me!

I couldn’t get a lot of Kenji and Nazeera in this book, though. And I really wished for more details on their relationship.

I’ve seen a lot of readers who just couldn’t like this book – some even said they wished the series ended with Ignite Me. So I sat for a while and I thought. If I had been asked if I wished this series ended when I finished Restore Me, I would’ve said yes. But Defy Me changed my whole perspective, this book made me want read more and I genuinely have no complains.

So 5 out of 5 stars – for making me happy! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5
