The ending truly made me cry!
*Romantic in an anti-hero sorta way
*A true page turner
*Easy to read
It was dark, dangerous and thrilling and so was it's psycopath main character. I loved it becuase it wasn't a typical teen book. It was intriguing and played at my intellect. A guy is released from juvenile prison and a young girl falls in love with him. Eric's mother sexually abused him so that explains his psychological problems. It is quite something and the title tenderness is interesting considering the content but both main characters neede love and were searching for tenderness.
A teenage girl becomes fixated with a teenage male criminal she sees on television. She goes out to find him when he is released, only to be caught up in a web of love and trouble. He on the other hand wants to go on with his life after having abused many teenage girls his age, the reason why he ended up in jail. When he meets this courageous and troubled girl, he finds himself in love with her.
You get all caught up in the story that the end shocks you. The book was all happy and sappy, until a boat ride at night, when he debates on whether he should gag her or take her. Suspenseful and entertaining.
