Book Review: Where I End by Michelle Dare

Where I End

by Michelle Dare



B & N





Where I End is a standalone new adult romance.

Pretentious. Arrogant. Condescending. Cruel.
All words I’d used to label him. Exactly what I’d always believed he was. All that changed one spring morning when I realized I didn’t know the man behind the facade at all.

Angry. Desperate. Broken. Mine.
All words I’d use to define him after I interfered. Once our eyes locked, I was all in. There was no turning back. He tried to push me away, but I refused to let him go. I was determined to save him. What I didn’t expect was that he would save me, too.

I was so close to ending my misery. Mere seconds away. Then she stumbled upon our argument, and I changed my plans. She wasn’t supposed to be there. She knew too much. Even with my entire world burning down around me, she wouldn’t walk away.

I’ve always been on my own. No one had ever fought for me before. Why should anyone start now? But she did, no matter how much I tried to stop her. I knew I was nothing, unworthy of her, but she was persistent. Once she got under my skin, I couldn’t let her go, because where I end, she begins.

Favorite Quotes:


‘You don’t get to keep walking away from me… At some point, I’m going to stop chasing you.’ In truth, I will stop chasing him, but I doubt I’ll ever stop caring for him. There’s only so much I can take, though.


I love you to the point of pain, Evie. My chest hurts when you’re not near.


You’re the most important person in my life, Evie. I was going to tell you right away, but the moment I saw you, all thought left my mind.


My Review:


I struggled while reading this book, not with the intense subject matter or main plot lines, but primarily with the writing style, it was just not my cup of tea.   Most of the elements for a satisfying read were present; the premise of the book was relevant and topical, many of the story threads were interesting and entertaining, the narrative was presented in my favorite dual POV, and it concluded with a satisfying HEA.   However, the writing was several shades too melodramatic and repetitious for my taste, and that is all a review actually comes down to, personal taste. I mean no disrespect to the author or her fans and certainly have no intention to cause ill will.  I am also well aware that while I may find some tropes and styles cheesy, other readers are eating it on toast.   Apparently, this is one of those times.  Ce la vie.
