Six Like The Number by Dee Hanna is a story I read on a whim one time on GoodNovel. I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not because, to be honest, I wasn’t attracted to the cover art. I was, however, intrigued by the title.
I’m glad I took the time to read it. It is hard to categorize because Axle, the male lead is supposedly a bad boy but doesn’t really act like the stereotype. He isn’t a bully and his biggest “rebellion” would be ditching class a lot. At most, I would say he is a (pardon my French) fuckboy.
The lead female is Six who is the daughter of a drug addict and is raising her 3-year-old younger brother, Theo. Neither of them knows who their fathers are and their mother is always strung out so Six is responsible for taking care of them both. To do this Six takes on a secret, unconventional job that will later become the catalyst for conflict.
Axle and Six are high school seniors, but that is incidental to the story. It really just establishes how they meet and interact daily. They were never enemies to lovers. At best I would say strangers/classmates to friends with benefits … and their relationship happened really fast. It took several weeks for them to be officially boyfriend and girlfriend but, again … no drama.
Six’s ex enters the picture and he is supposed to be the biggest baddie but, again, this does not manifest when he is around Six.
Six Like The Number is fast-paced and, was surprisingly (for me) a real page-turner. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it several months ago and I had to re-read it now just for this review. I won’t say more! You have to read it for yourself.
If you’re looking for something to read that does not involve wolves, vampires, dragons, or any other kind of shifter … if you are looking for a story with substance, try out this book … Six Like The Number by Dee Hanna, available on Goodnovel.
