I use people. Not in a malicious way, but in the way an addict abuses their substance of choice. People are my vice—men specifically. I crave the emotional high they give me with a unique and reckless disregard for my own well-being—eagerly floating into an unsustainable euphoria, knowing full well that after every high comes an equal, if not more powerful, plummet into a devastating abyss. But like every junkie, I crawl willingly back into the arms of my demons.
Oh, the price we pay to feel loved. We’d all sell our souls to the devil himself for that. Perhaps I have already.
They say that acknowledging that you have a problem is one of the first steps to recovery. Well, in that case, my name is Charleston Smith and I have a fucking problem.
Hell on Heels is my first ever Anne Jolin read, and I didn’t have any idea what I was getting myself into.
The story is narrated by the heroine, Charleston Smith. Most of the heroine that we read about are damsels in distress, who need some knights to save them. However, Charlie isn’t one of them. Again, she is not your average heroine, and this is not your everyday love story. Maybe most readers won’t be able to relate to the heroine and the plot, but this book is still very helpful and inspirational for every reader.
The book teaches women to use their biggest defeat as their greatest armor when they rise again. It helps us see the ugliness and beauty of moving on with life, despite of every lemon it throws our way.
Hell On Heels is a story of survival, forgiveness and self- love. Anne Jolin wrote this book quite beautifully. I have highlighted almost every part of it, because they’re all quote-worthy. You will definitely be taken into an emotional rollercoaster while reading this book. It will make you cry, laugh and swoon.
This book is a complete standalone. If you are looking for a story that revolves more around a strong heroine, this is definitely for you. The book has little romance in it, but I assure you that you will still love every page of it.
