Review: I See You by Molly McAdams

*****5 Stars*****

Molly McAdams is the queen of all things angst and love triangles! There has not been a single book by her that I didn't love and that didn't involve angst for days or a complicated love triangle. If I want either of those things, I immediately see if Molly has anything new or check out any of her books that I haven't had the pleasure of reading. This book was nothing short of perfection and there was not a single thing I didn't like about this book. The author sure knows how to hook you from the start and make it to where you don't want to put the book down although the angst got to be too much at times so I was forced to put the book down or go insane. Of course knowing Molly, I was already prepared to be destroyed and had tissues on hand.
I See You goes back and forth between the past and the present but don't worry because you'll catch on soon enough. Aurora/Rorie hooks up at a college party with the hot, brooding, mysterious guy in the corner. The bad boy that tells her he can only give her one night and that's usually not the kind of girl she is but she wants to be different for one night. Rorie meets Declan the next weekend when she goes back to search for her mystery man. Declan is the nice guy, the charmer who stole her heart from the moment they met but Jentry had touched her soul. She thought she'd never see him again but when he pops back up into her life in the most devastating, angsty way, she is forced to keep that night hidden from everyone around. She is caught in the middle of a battle where no matter what someone will end up hurt. She is inevitably forced to choose between the safe and reliable relationship she has with Declan or Jentry, the guy who her soul calls for and who she can't forget about no matter how hard she tries.
Molly has a knack for making you fall in love with the other guy. I was rooting for Jentry the whole time and I loved everything about him!! (Sorry Declan) He was soft and hard and sweet and sexy and protective. I loved it when he stood up to his mother on Aurora's behalf. Don't even get me talking about his mother Linda. She was nothing short of a witch. I kind of understood her actions though, especially at the end when she sort of redeems herself, but I cried for what she put Aurora through. And Aurora was a strong female lead and I applaud her for everything she had to go through. I know I wouldn't have been as strong as her under the circumstances and I know this is fiction but still.
This book was an emotional roller coaster of epic proportions and will give you one heck of a book hangover but it is well worth it! I loved Aurora, Declan, and Jentry and was super happy and pleased with how it ended! I can't wait to see what else Molly has in store for us next!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’ powerful new novel offers one of the most memorable love triangles in fiction since Twilight—perfect for fans of New Adult fiction like Jamie McGuire, Abbi Glines, and Tamarra Webber. 

Futures are uncertain, unpredictable—like ink spilled across the purest surface. Nearly imperceptible ripples move and flow until a unique stain is formed. The ink is permanently imbedded in the surface…

During one wild night in college, Jentry Michaels is a tidal wave of ink that brands Aurora Wilde’s soul. An unparalleled stain she can’t forget despite the many months that have passed—and despite the distraction she’d hoped she would find in her new relationship with Declan, the charmer who captured her heart soon after. Jentry has irrevocably touched her soul, and he is intertwined in her present and future in ways she never fathomed. Now Aurora is faced with keeping that night hidden though it feels as if the ink has indelibly etched their story across her skin.

When Declan is confronted with his own personal demons, Aurora must decide if she will continue to hold tight to their relationship and a safe, reliable future with him, or if she will turn to Jentry—the guy she can’t forget no matter how hard she tries.…
