Skye followed her long time boyfriend to Seattle for their first year of college, but he dumped her after only a week. The relationship brought only pain and destruction in Skye's life, and yet, she can't bring herself to open up and live her life.
"What if I am already broken into pieces?"
She hates to be touched, hiding under her oversized shirts and behind her wild frizzy hair. Even her bubbly roommate can't reach her. And yet ...
"I'm the guy who knows how you can hurt so much that your insides feel like they're cut and bleeding."
The tall, handsome, and tattooed TA in her psychology class changes everything when he literally collides with her and confronts her. For the first time in a long time, she wants to try and open up to this guy whose dark, intense eyes can't hide his own pain despite his dazzling smile getting to her.
However, just when she's starting to live again, her ex-boyfriend comes back, breaking her time and time again, making it all the more complicated.
She wants to fight for herself and for this building thing with the TA, even when he pushes her away, but can two broken people patch each other up?
"I never thought colliding with someone could change lives, but it is possible."
My Review: What an emotional and heart wrenching story. The book started out a little slow at first but then it takes off into directions I was not prepared for. Skye the MC of the story thinks she's got it all and follows so called Mr Wonderful off to college only to be dumped. Which was a good thing for her but at the time she doesn't realize it. The ex is a real piece of work he left Skye with some emotional and physical scars that she wasn't ready to share with anyone until Duke he helps her and make Skye want to fight for a new life a better life. I was so emotionally vested in Patch Up it really hit home for me and made me realize that when you get knocked down you have to get up and fight back and to take control of your path in life and rid yourself of those not worthy of your time or breath. I enjoyed the book and I can honestly say it was not what I expected. Stephanie Witter did an excellent job combining all of the emotional elements of Patch Up and making the reader feel so much of what was happening in the story. I look forward to her next book.
