The Safest Place Away From “Home”

Recently, I felt the need to read a sappy romance, as one often does. So I picked up Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks, for what feels like the third book. Yes, I know. Cliche, but I can’t help that he’s a good author. He has realistic characters and semi-realistic situations. (I’m not going to mention the Notebook because I can yet handle that amount of cheese.) If you have yet to know what it’s about, it’s about our protagonist escaping from an abusive relationship. It’s an interesting take seeing as in most stories about domestic violence, the person being abused is saved instead of saving his or herself. It was quite an enjoyable read since the romance wasn’t just at the forefront. Even though there are feelings present, that’s not all that’s there in case 100% cheesy romance isn’t your thing. Also, the plot twist is completely worth it in my opinion.
