Synopsis

For as long as she can remember Millie has had her limits. Staying within them keeps her isolated, safe; helps her to cope. Why then have they started to feel so stifling? Why is her loneliness starting to rival her fears?

When she watches him she wishes she could be normal; she wishes she could be like the people he interacts with so seamlessly. Pavlos Martakis is her complete and total opposite: physically intimidating, likable, naturally attractive, extremely confident, sexually promiscuous: the most uninhibited, charming, outgoing and free person she has ever encountered in her life. He fascinates Millie; thrills and intimidates her in equal measure.

But, as the culprit behind the invention of her nickname Nuclear Winter, Millie knows that if Pav feels anything for her it is more than likely contempt. Cold, boring, robotic: that is how the rest of the hospital sees her. So she can safely watch him from afar. He would never notice her … would he?

This book is a full-length contemporary romance of approximately 90,000 words with no cliffhanger and its own HEA. 



Review

This book was provided by the author through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Susie Tate and Netgalley!

Limits tells the story of Millie who suffers from anxiety and all her life she’s been creating these limits, but Pav is trying to push her limits and she doesn’t really know how to feel about it…

Limits was such a beautiful and inspiring book about anxiety. I’ve read some books where the main character has anxiety, but it’s never been as severe as in Limits. I think that Susie Tate did an amazing job of portraying anxiety because I could totally feel what Millie was feeling. My anxiety isn’t as severe as Millie’s but I could really relate to what Millie was going through.

I really liked that there was a double perspective, you could read in Millie and Pav’s perspective so you got to know Pav was thinking of her anxiety because it’s not always easy to know when someone’s suffering from a mental illness.

I really enjoyed reading Limits and I cannot wait to read another book written by Susie Tate!
