Love this author, knowing you are pretty well guaranteed a great read that keeps you turning those pages, while a little on edge and this was another example of her ability to keep me invested.
The characters likeable, although Riley was a little stubborn and immature at times which somewhat irked me, yet you couldn't help like her anyway.
Hunter, what an appropriate name. He took what he wanted and used whatever means to get it, thankfully!
There were a couple of times throughout the book that made me wonder why the author had mentioned them when they didn't eventuate into anything further and I must say, it also was slightly longwinded and repetitive at times... overall though it was a great read.
The characters are awful. I tried to stick it out, hoping they'd go through some growth but they didn't.
This isn't a dark romance. It takes certain aspects of a dark romance i.e. manipulation, dubious consent, possessiveness and the bully trope but the characters show no real awareness for just how toxic their situation is. Riley is supposed to be a smart girl, but she's makes careless decisions, has zero of that self respect she claims is so important and keeps fighting for the "nice guy" who never really did anything that nice? He walked her home, sure. Bought her a bag and a book, coolcool. That's about it in terms of nice things he does. He basically said how she was wasn't good enough for his friends and he was too much of a whimp to stand up to them (being the kid who brings his mum to the mall, then forces his crush to hang out with her, I'm not surprised). How he treats her after Italy is disgusting.
The difference between a good dark romance, and a story about abuse of power in relationships, is the characters depth and their growth.
These two have neither.
Keep up the great work!!!
The Boy on the Bridge is about Riley and Hunter. These two are complete opposites. Where Riley is nerdy and on the poorer side living with her mom, Hunter is the rich popular guy in school everyone loves. These two met when Riley was 14 and became fast friends. Yes, Hunter had many friends at school, but none that he trusted or could confide in the way he did with Riley. That is, until she breaks his trust and he gets sent away. A few years later and he's back in town, intent on making her pay for her betrayal. What will he do? What did Riley do to betray him and will he ever forgive her?
This story was so good. I loved how headstrong and independent Riley was and the loyalty and empathy she showed towards others is something that's in low supply in real life these days. As for Hunter, swoon. The perfect book boyfriend. He himself is determined and persistent. I felt for what he endured at home and what happened to him, and regardless off all his ruthless and possessive manipulation, he did feel guilt and was apologetic for his actions which gave him extra points.
I felt as though this story was a bit on the longer side than most novels. Some parts seemed to drag, but overall, this was a great story. I enjoyed the book and the characters were fantastic.
I was totally enamoured with Riley. I was so totally invested in her story and her journey with Hunter. I feel that the author totally nailed teen angst while also developing strong female characters. There are some potential triggers and interesting turns.
Downsides, throwing in of random characters in the end. The story goes on day by day alot then all of a sudden skips a heap. This does not take from the journey of the MC though, just an interesting way to do it. Other characters sort of fall to the wayside , which again is OK as this is an epic love story and it focus stays true.
Now I need a nap!

Well it was worth the wait! I am so in love with Hunter. His love and fight for Riley was just so full of love, emotion, angst and gave me chills (in a good way). I laughed and I cried with these characters just hoping that Riley got her man....what a journey they had! There were so many crazy and interesting characters in the plot, Riley's mom deserves a book all for herself. I would also love to read a story on Sherlock!!
This is a story about a popular rich sporty jock who falls for the strong independent and stubborn book nerd....but trust me when I say it so much more complex than that....it's about love, forgiveness and friendship! This story will touch you in ways you won't expect and it is one you will still be thinking about long after you have finished it!!
Great characters, loved her mum, Ray, Sherlock, and that she met Zoey. Also loved hating so many people. Just plain hated his Mother. As usual Sam Mariano, breathes such life in to her books. I've read everything she's written, the book boyfriends and book hangovers I've enjoyed and suffered because of her. Can't wait for Caleb, to meet his match. Great read.
As I said above. I think Riley’s unwillingness to forgive was just too immature and lacked belief. I think the real issue is the length it took for her to forgive. In my opinion the book is too long by about a third. This took my enjoyment from a 5 to 4 star. Needless filler that just bloated the story. Then the twist of Hunter’s reveal was just so childish I rolled my eyes. Felt like these two are too immature to actually be end game. That feedback is largely for the author who I’m sure will appreciate constructive feedback because Sam you’re a fantastic writer and I’m going to continue reading your work.
