Release Blitz:
Not Enough
Mia Hoddell
Nov 16th

Genre: Upper YA/NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 16th 2015
Pages: 324
Neve Colvin isn’t good enough. As an introvert, her life is a never-ending list of labels and criticism. Pressures to change come from everyone—including the one person she thought would love her unconditionally … her mother. All Neve wants is acceptance, but surrounded by extroverts it’s a wish that’s nearly impossible to fulfil.
For Neve there’s only one solution: anyone disapproving must go. Even if it means only one person will remain.
That person is her lifelong friend Blake Reynolds. He’s seen the fights with her mum, the breakdowns caused by attacks on her personality, and the battles for acceptance. Each time she is left shattered and questioning who she is, he’s the one to collect the pieces of her broken heart. Shielding her from the cruelty is his only concern. But how can he protect her when Neve is concealing a secret so dark?
Blake thinks he knows everything about her, and with their relationship developing, he assumes Neve trusts him fully. However, there is one memory Neve is too ashamed of to share. Revealing it will test Blake’s loyalty beyond what she could ever ask, and Blake is the only friend she can’t afford to lose. He’s the one person capable of dragging her from the darkness plaguing her, but with pressures to conform increasing, even Blake may not be enough to pull her back this time.

“I’m always going to feel responsible for you, Stripes. I’ve felt it’s my job to look out for you since we were six and Aaron Slates stole your ice-cream. I don’t care how many times I have to pick you up as long as you’re by my side at the end of it and I can still   make you happy.”

Neve and Blake have been friends since their early childhood, but they grew up with completely different life styles. Blake knew what it was like to be loved. Neve, on the other hand, has never felt like she was enough. Neve's family never showed her what belonging and being loved felt like. They always showed her the complete opposite. Her dad was never around and her mom has always put her down, which caused Neve to believe that no one would ever truly love her.

Blake has always known that there was something about Neve that wasn't right. He can see the pain behind her eyes, and he would do anything in his power to to make her happy. Blake knows that Neve has never really been happy in her life. So, when he asked her to leave the life she has lived, and start a new one with him, he notices the difference he brings into Neve's life. When she starts changing for the better and looks happier, he has never felt more complete.

"This is how I like to see her, carefree and happy. It’s rare nowadays that I catch a glimpse of Neve when she’s truly happy, but in this moment there isn’t a strained muscle in her body. It’s natural, and I can’t stop myself from watching her. I’m still amazed that I’m the one who can bring out her joy and it baffles me that she’s allowed herself to be mine."

I really liked Blake and Neve's relationship. I loved that even before they got together he was always there to protect her and constantly trying to bring out her smile. Blake helped Neve become a better person and made her believe in herself and enjoy the women that she was. As a couple, they were cute together and I was happy to see Neve come out of her shell and live the happy life that she really deserves!
