Review of You've Got Me by Mercy Amare


Roxy is broken
Aiden wants to fix her

No matter how hard Roxy tries to overcome her past, she can't. She writes on her arms to escape the pain, but nothing can soothe the ache that she feels.

Aiden didn't go to college to meet girls, he came to play football. Too bad that it is impossible for him to stay away from Roxy.

After meeting on the roof, they instantly feel connected, but neither of them are ready for love.

You Got Me is a story about new beginnings, and finding love when you least expect it.


I was really touched by this book.  It was so sweet and full of love.  I adored Roxy and admired her strength.  I'll admit, I had trouble connecting with the characters at first.  By the time I got 25% into the book, I was hooked.

Aiden is such a great guy.  He cares for his family and loves the ones closest to him.  He even cares for his roommate even though he hardly gets any sleep between Garry's girls and his snoring.  His family struggles and he does what he can to help.  Aiden's going to school and keeping his grades up so he can help provide them with a better life.  He never expected to meet Roxy.

Roxy is damaged.  She has suffered her whole life.  Guys aren't even on her radar.  Speaking to people is a challenge for her.  She's been through a lot in her life and has the mental and physical scars to prove it.  She now has a family that loves and supports her.  

When Roxy meets Aiden, there are a million reasons they shouldn't become friends.  Regardless, they do.  Both of them realize they find comfort in each other that they didn't know they needed.  

This book made me cry sad and happy tears.  It was a stellar book with heart and I have to recommend You've Got Me to anyone who enjoys a new adult love story.  This book gets five glittery stars for pure awesomeness!
