**I was provided with an eArc by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!**
Because I Love You was once more a Blogateers-buddy-read with Cristina and Cátia. It should come as no surprise that we were on the same wave-length in terms of what we thought about the book, but you should definitely make sure to check out their blogs in the near future to read their reviews!!
As of late, I’ve apparently read quite a couple of books with teen pregnancies and somehow I find they always end in a very similar way. However, even if I thought that the final decision was a little bit predictable, the book as a whole definitely wasn’t. You might think that there is a limited of twists and turns in a YA contemporary, but nope, there were so many surprises that I didn’t expect. People who were supposed to be friends either turned out to be backstabbers or cowards, yet the ones who I was wary and suspicious of were the greatest support. It’s not just the people though, the plot itself has quite a few things in store as well.
I am always having difficulties saying things about books I liked. First, I don’t want to spoil you in any way and second, I am not sure how much use simple fangirling is. Because I Love You flows really nicely from the beginning. It has relatable characters who will grow on you quickly and show you how important a good support system is. There’s also a swoon-worthy guy who would slay dragons for the people he loves and a girl who realises how good she has had it in life and how much she has always been cared for. The novel tackles surprisingly many themes aside from teen pregnancy and adoption, however, going further into this might reveal too much already.
If you do pick up Because I Love You one day, and I really hope you will, I want you to go into this with an open mind. There’s so much more to people than we are able to see at first glance, maybe even at second.
Fazit: 4.5/5 stars! A great emotional contemporary with twists that will surprise you!
