The author was able to capture your heart to fully immerse you into a very emotional and captivating story There has never been a book that I could fully relate and connect with than this story Crying, laughing, anger, all those emotions are felt for in the story between Charlie, Maverick and couldn t forget Torie My favorite saying from the story was when Mav left a rose and a note on Charlie s car Dear Charlie I wanted to leave you with something to think about The yellow rose is a symbol of friendship, where we are starting However, the red around the tips if the petals means that I have feelings that I would like to see grow intoPlease remember our talk from earlier, I meant every damn word.Your friend, but hopefully not for much longer.Mav How could you not love this

Strings which the author has graciously gave us a small tastes I can t wait to hear Torie s story I also have to mention another plus in this books favor is the absolutely beautiful cover Dear Heather, I came across your book on Smashwords I was looking for a book, that I am pretty sure did not have love or notes in the title, so I was pretty surprised when Love Notes was my search result I read the synopsis and knew instantly that I needed to read it What I read was nothing that I was expecting, it brought forth so many past emotions that I couldn t help but fall in love with itYou clearly don t care if you repulse anyone You really should have tried harder to lose weight Dear Heather, I came across your book on Smashwords I was looking for a book, that I am pretty sure did not have love or notes in the title, so I was pretty surprised when Love Notes was my search result I read the synopsis and knew instantly that I needed to read it What I read was nothing that I was expecting, it brought forth so many past emotions that I couldn t help but fall in love with itYou clearly don t care if you repulse anyone You really should have tried harder to lose weight I think you may have gained a few pounds over the summer You re dismissed It was that sentence that made me audibly gasp, Oh my god, this poor girl I knew at that moment things arethan likely going to get worse, before they got better My heart hurt for her and not just because of the obvious reasons but, because I was in her shoes at one point in my life The way you told things from Charlie s POV, were raw and exposed I could feel the emptiness that Charlie felt, the confusion of not knowing what she is doing to cause such hostility from someone that is supposed to love her unconditionallyNot only do I bump into this person, I fall and I fall hard I tumble all the way straight down on my very padded ass This was not the first impression I was going for Without even looking up I feel mortified and am internally slapping myself for my stupidity The instant that I look up I m captivated by a set of perfectly bright blue eyes With Charlie s last year of High School, she seems to make a great first impression on the popular boy at school, Maverick I loved how you brought Maverick s POV to the story To see Charlie through his eyes, to see what her father has made her feel verses what she really looks like Now, my favorite thing about this story, you didn t make Charlie become miraculously cured of her body image issues I have read so many books where in the beginning of the book, the female has self esteem issues and when the popular guy or millionaire playboy says, You re so hot, I wanna do you , poof she s Cinderella and never again thinks she s uglyWhat he doesn t understand, is that I still can t believe that this is real That this guy actually likes me I have a hard time looking at myself in the mirror, let alone a guy like Maverick thinking of me as prettythan pretty I can t escape how I feel about myself and automatically forget everything that I ve dealt at home, just because some hot guy shows interest in me I m trying, but it isn t easy and it still feels like a dream that I could wake up from, at any moment Maverick had to work really hard to get her I m sure he would have had to work a lot harder if it hadn t been for Tori The girl who sees something in Charlie that Charlie hides from the world I loved Tori How she took a hold of Charlie and tried to make her see the amazing person that she is When Tori and Maverick tell Charlie how beautiful she is, I could see the disbelief on Charlie s face I could feel her reluctance to believe the words Her father constantly telling her she s worthless, was definitely not working in Maverick or Tori s favor.This story that you wrote, is nothing short of incredible Authors like you are why I read, why I love reading You exposed yourself You opened yourself to the world and let them see every imperfection, we often hide For that I Thank You Things that you wrote in this book, I related to on so many levels The part where Maverick meets her parents was like reliving every moment I had to bring a friend home Charlie living two different lives, one where she is carefree and happy at school and the girl that goes home hoping she will never run into her tormentor I didn t go looking for your book but, your book found me This story will forever be close to my heart Thank You, for writing a story for every person out there that has ever been made to feel like they are less than the person they are That no matter how people hurt us and make us feel unworthy, that there is always someone standing there to say, You re beautiful to meI alone define my own self worth Not a boy, but me No one else can make me feel good about myself My own personal value is what matters, not what anyone else thinks or says But mine Love notes by Heather GunterI don t know how I can describe this

but Charlie doesn t understand why Charlie lives a life of sadness, of self loathing, and Loneliness When a sexy guy pays her attention and calls her gorgeous and loves her she can t come to terms with it, she doesn t believe it Maverick is the captain of the football team, sexy as sin and wanted by every girl in the school He has the most loving parents and has friends galore But all he wants is Charlie He thinks she s perfect, beautiful, sweet and amazing The author writes a touching story of a beautiful, caring girl who thinks the worst of herself, she thinks she s fat and ugly and never had anyone in her life to tell her different I felt for Charlie from the beginning I wanted to be her BFF, I wanted to tell her how beautiful and wonderful she is I loved that Tori took her under her wing Tori is a best friend that everyone needs She made Charlie feel wanted, and cared for and was always there to catch her when she falls I had a great friend in high school like that and I tell you it makes life better I enjoyed the relationship between Charlie and Maverick , from the first hello, to the first kiss, to the I loves you then to the pushing each other away This story has it all

release updates, giveaways and 4.5 out of 5 stars Love Notes is a beautiful YA debut from Into the Night Reviews very own Heather Gunter I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to read an ARC prior to release for this review In Love Notes Gunter very successfully tackles the challenging subject of self esteem and the impact others have on how we see ourselves.Charlie has spent her whole life hearing about her short falls Her weight, her looks, her everything in the eyes of her father, she just doesn t measure up Due to her dad s job, Charlie and her family move every few years For Charlie, frequently being the new girl at school is hard work, particularly with her lack of confidence, so she tends to try and fly under the radar With all the moving around Charlie hasn t had the opportunity to develop lasting friendships and reap the benefits that come with them, nor does she realise that her experiences at home at not normal With next to no self esteem, and counting down the days of her senior year in high school at yet another new school, the last thing Charlie expects is to catch the eye of the football captain.Maverick is not your typical jock Unlike many he s not into meaningless flings with the girls that throw themselves at him He s focussed on his football, maintaining his grades and moving on to college with his football scholarship On the first day of school he literally runs into Charlie, knocking her flat on her backside And immediately his interest is piqued.Love Notes takes us on a development journey of friendships, relationships, self esteem and muchCharlie has to come to grips with the fact that her self perception is challenged by others and is perhaps not what it should be Maverick has to consider his love of football, his dream to play in college and its place in his future And both of them have to work out if they can be there for each other as they do this Told from both Charlie and Maverick s points of view we get to see both characters perceptions and understand their perspectives I am a big fan of this style as it gives great insight into the experiences of both characters and for me, allows the reader to develop a stronger connection with them both, as opposed to only one The relationship between the two evolves beautifully as Maverick slowly nurtures some confidence into Charlie s battered self esteem But just as things are starting to look up, tragedy strikes and threatens not only the relationship but Charlie s already limited sense of self worth.Gunter has created some absolutely delightful characters in Love Notes Maverick is everything a girl could hope for in a boyfriend Tori, Charlie s new found BFF is to die for Her wit and sass are perfect and she manages to cajole Charlie out of her shell very effectively, all the while harboring a secret of her own Will, Maverick s best friend is also fabulous calling Maverick on his crap when he least expects it precisely what you want from someone who s known you all your life.In Charlie I think Gunter has accurately created a girl who has had a life time of put downs she has a good balance of insecurity and yet hope The impact of such consistent criticism from one of the two people you look to for unconditional love cannot be underestimated and I think the strength of character Charlie shows is worthy of great admiration I loved how the changes in Charlie were progressive, this made her character so realistic and believable I was particularly impressed with Charlie towards the end of the book there were a couple of scenes that required great courage and she stepped up really well.Love Notes is a touching YA story about developing a sense of self worth that I just loved Despite a lifetime of negative messages, and with the help of her new found friends, Charlie shows that nothing is insurmountable A beautiful first effort from Gunter It s a relatively quick read, perfect to settle down with on an afternoon when you don t want to think too hard about what you re reading, but rather relax and just get lost in a sweet love story Gunter finishes the book with a teaser for Heart Strings, book two in the series which tells Tori s story and I am definitely looking forward to it And for those of you that don t like cliffhangers, don t be concerned THREE AND A HALF STARS why yes, I cheated and just edited screencaps of OTH for my editI quite enjoyed this book It was a much needed change of pace from my usual erotic romances that I welcomed it with opened arms Whilst Love Notes wouldn t win any awards for originality, I was still charmed by the simple story of the school s heart throb falling head over heels in love with the insecure, curvy new girl in town I liked both Charlie and Maverick and found them so absolutely sweet together Ma THREE AND A HALF STARS why yes, I cheated and just edited screencaps of OTH for my editI quite enjoyed this book It was a much needed change of pace from my usual erotic romances that I welcomed it with opened arms Whilst Love Notes wouldn t win any awards for originality, I was still charmed by the simple story of the school s heart throb falling head over heels in love with the insecure, curvy new girl in town I liked both Charlie and Maverick and found them so absolutely sweet together Maverick is a great character and the way he is with Charlie had me smiling That kid sure has a way with words Charlie, I wish you could see what I see you re just perfect for me But as sweet as I found Maverick, the standout mc for me would definitely have to be Charlie I couldn t help but identify with her while reading, the embarrassment and shame that arose from being picked on by the mean girls in school, something that I was definitely familiar with growing up But what got to me the most was her dismal home life.I can t deny the real emotions that churned in me after reading about Charlie s dysfunctional family life Its sad to see the distance in her relationship with her mother and her view spoiler non biological hide spoiler father, but evensadder to see the effect that it has on her self esteem, having absolutely no support system whatsoever and despite all reason, yearning forfrom her parents Because of this, I absolutely could not fault Charlie for her inability to handle compliments directed at her, nor for her reaction after the plot twist at the 50% mark And I wasthan happy for her when she was determined to find her self worth via her own agency rather than through her boyfriend.So, why not five stars While it was enjoyable, it didn t knock me head over heels I wasn t even mad at the insta love, or the somewhat unnecessary drama that arose from Maverick s massive pout over his future prospects but there was just something missing from the writing that I needed There were also some editing mistakes that my eyes obviously couldn t stop from zooming in on, but wasn t too much of a distraction for me.Overall, Love Notes is a good read that I would recommend to YA lovers I think it has a great message overall for the youths of today and I wishYA authors would sendempowering messages such as this to young girls.Let someone love you just as you are As flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you might feel, as unaccomplished as you might think you are, let someone love you just as you are And let that someone be YOU Sandra Kring
