Source: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book disappointed me a little as I high hopes for this one. The story was predictable but it could have taken a totally different turn but unfortunately it didn’t but I can’t totally say I didn’t enjoy it because it had its moments!
Annabel, the dare queen became a control freak after an accident changed her life. Kennedy was her partners in crime since they were kids but after the accident, he stopped being friends with her. But now, he realises his mistake and wants her back in his life. He knows he can get her back through the only way, by throwing a dare toward her but the new Annabel is quite different from the one he knew. Would he be able to get her back or is it already too late?
The plot had potential but it did let me down in some ways. Annabel and Kennedy were friends and partners in crime since their childhood but after a particular accident left Annabel scarred and killed her brother, she changed. She became more controlled. And Kennedy withdrew from her. It had been years since they have actually talked but Kennedy desperately wants her back in his life and he is ready to do anything for it. I liked the idea for the dare, Kennedy would take her on a road trip to a music festival and there for be 7 dares and for each dare he has to submit his writing. The dares were pretty funny sometimes and sometimes edgy but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
Annabel was a likable character. Although she became a control freak but she was fiercely protective of the ones she loved, especially her grandmother and I liked her relationship with her. I liked Kennedy, he understood his mistake and did everything under his power to redeem himself but the resolve was too quick and the ending kind of felt rushed. Also, another downfall was that I wasn’t invested in the characters that much, therefore I didn’t enjoy the romance much.
Overall, Seven Ways to Lose Your Heart was an okay read! The plot was different yet predictable and the characters failed to hold my interest. But there were some parts of the story that I really enjoyed. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book.
