Bestie by Bella Jewel is about finding just what you need when you least expect it. Even when neither of you are looking for it.
Molly is heartbroken. Her boyfriend broke up with her and walked away without a backwards glance. With no explanation or concern for her. She questions herself, her choices and her self-worth. Lost and lonely, she has no idea what to do or how to begin healing.
Roman is currently going through his own loss and trying to find his way. Lost and broken, he is just barely moving forward.
Then one day they run into each other again and see a kindred soul in each other. Becoming best friends and learning to smile again, they begin to heal each other. Their friendship blooms as they get to know each other and find they can support and be there for each other. It was truly heartening seeing them become friends.
What I loved about this story is the raw emotions you feel when reading. You feel them coming off the pages and touching your heart. Love is never easy. Love is never what you expect. Finding that connection when you least expect it and not ready can be scary, but it’s what you do with that chance that matters.
Molly and Roman were not ready for each other, but their friendship allowed them to be open with each other in a way they could not have if they met any other way. When they realized there could be more, do they take a chance on what could be or keep what they have?
Molly was so lost and broken when the story began, but as she begins to heal with Roman’s help, you can see the strong woman she is. She begins to see what she her worth and what she deserves. She wants the same for Roman, but he finds it hard to let go of what hurts him most.
Roman just broke my heart. He was so heartbroken, he did not know how to move forward. And his indecision hurt their friendship, but through it all, they tried really hard to always be there for each other.
Bestie was both a heart-breaking and heartwarming story. The emotions are real and raw and will touch you deeply. A very emotional read, but so worth the ride.
I give Bestie by Bella Jewel 4-stars!
