Review ~*~ Sharing Harper by V. Murphy

“I’m not very good at sharing, especially when it comes to you Harper.”

A pain too hard to understand.
A struggle too deep to reach.
A love too complicated to work…but too intense to let go.

   Harper Mae ran as far away as she could from her abusive past. She went to a different city and numbed her pain by using men, never sleeping with the same guy more than once.
   Ryder worked at a coffee shop trying blend in with the rest of the world, desperately trying to live a normal life. After leaving a relationship and losing his family, he vowed never to fall in love again.

  Until one day they are unexpectedly drawn to each other unable to let go. Harper and Ryder’s turbulent relationship, two people who are struggling to find themselves, realize the answer lies within each other.
   Secrets, so deep, that both have, end up surfacing causing irrevocable pain.
   Will their love be strong enough to survive or will their pain be the downfall to their relationship?
 Will Harper open up enough to share her past with Ryder or will he be just another number on her list?

3.5 Star Review ~*~

Sharing Harper is the debut novel of Author V. Murphy. While it didn't hit me strong enough to rate it a 5 Star . . . It was a good story with good characters.  So I will definitely say, pick it up and give this new Indie author a try if the description calls to you because it is well written, with few to no errors!!

Harper keeps a lot of herself hidden.  After a trouble past, she has major issues with trust so she just kind of keeps to herself.  She is a character you can empathize with and feel for her plight in life, but at times you do kind of want to strangle her and ask her what she's thinking. Ryder is intriguing.  There were times he was sweet and thoughtful and times he came across like a major jerk.  You want to see what he's hiding because it has to be something to explain his actions.

Sharing Harper started a little slow for me, then had a few ups and downs, but I do have to say I liked the ending!  This is a sweet romance between two troubled people who both have a tough time with trust and letting go.  Again, while Sharing Harper wasn't my favorite book of the year, it is a good debut novel and I look forward to reading what V. Murphy has up her sleeve for her next novel.

I received a copy of Sharing Harper in exchange for an honest review!
