Some Sort of Happy is book one in the Happy Crazy Love Series by the fantastic Melanie Harlow. I loved her other books but this book just blew me away! This book was a different turn than Melanie’s other books and what a RIGHT turn it was!!
Melanie managed to touch on a very serious subject that isn’t talked about much and still write a light, airy, heart wrenching book. While your heart breaks at times, others you will find yourself in a fit of laughter or your heart pounding a mile a minute because you are in absolute love with these characters.
Sebastian Pryce is one helluva man. In school, he was not so popular mainly because of his issues. Now years later he has grown into one gorgeous, sweet, mind blowing man. He still has his quirks, but in my eyes they are just quirks, in his eyes they are the reason he will be alone forever.
Sebastian always had a thing for Skylar in school, I mean who didn’t she was gorgeous but he never let on about it. Skylar comes back home embarrassed of something she did in the past, she feels like a failure, little does this girl realize just how much spunk and will power she has. Set to find her way, find a new job and make it on her own.
Now these two run into each other almost 10 years later and well, the rest is history. Skylar and Sebastian have immediate chemistry. The more Skylar learns about Sebastian the more she falls. The more she falls the more frustrated she becomes. She wants him to let her in; the problem is Sebastian struggles and doesn’t know how.
“You’re a beautiful, brilliant, complicated man, Sebastian Pryce. And I adore you. But if you want to suffer here alone with your tortured soul because you think for some f***ed up reason you deserve it, fine. Choose suffering over me. But I can’t watch it. It will destroy me” ~ Skylar
The road isn’t easy. It’s rocky, slippery at times but beautiful. Will Skylar break through Sebastian’s walls? Will these two find love and finally let it in?
This book was witty, sexy, and heart-wrenchingly beautiful. Easily one of my top reads of this year! 5 fantastic stars for Some Sort of Happy!
