Oh god. This story hit home on so many levels. Not that my parents were controlling or that my husband is either, but Jenna's fear of never knowing who she is and what she's capable of really struck a chord for me. It's easy to smile, nod, and slowly change your personality and way of thinking to suit others. Do it for too long and you'll never be more than a puppet. That was me. That was Jenna. There was this...lost sort of feeling throughout this story, like there was some part of Jenna that knew she was more than what others saw but didn't know how to show it. Watching her emerge from her own shadow was amazing and enlightening because she was reluctant to do it. The comfort zone is where the timid stay. It keeps others happy while it makes them miserable. To discover who and what she was, Jenna had to step outside of her comfort zone and, literally, into the unknown. Did she? Yes, and the woman she discovered was amazing, I think, even to herself. She was successful, she was good at her profession, she could make decisions that reflected her, she could give her all and be satisfied with the outcome. Those revelations helped with her relationship with her mom, her fiance, and showed her that it was okay to do as her heart directed instead of as someone else commanded. Happiness and self-worth aren't defined by others. They are defined by you and only you. (Received from Tasty Book Tours for an honest review)
