There is a point in the story where Warren does something that ... well, I sorta swore at him through the book, Thankfully, I wasn't out in public, but it was a pretty intense thing going on there. He was in such pain and was such an a-hole, broke my heart! And it causes Shaina to make some questionable decisions. But when he makes up for it, he does good. :D
I loved book 2, and this one is vying hard to tie that love. If I could hug a book... this would be that book. : )
Shaina has trouble of her own - invisible scars that run deep. She's living her life in order to please everyone else - keep her parents happy and together - and she's tired.
"It was a lot of pressure being the key to everyone else's happiness." -Shaina, Loc 193
She's ready to move beyond the image she's created, finally be the grownup she is rather than pretending to be the little girl her parents and fans see her as. She's just unsure she has the strength to do it. And as she's contemplating these heady things, she meets Warren Jinkins - on a bridge.
The emotions evoked as I watched these two broken souls building a bridge toward one another were stormy. War and Shaina have been to the same dark places and understood one another in a way no one else could. Their bridge building wasn't pretty or smooth - nothing with War ever is. But I loved the way in which they reached one another. Shaina made War realize he was worthy of someone's love...
"When she looked at me that way she made me feel as if I were somehow the best thing that had ever happened to her.
No one had ever looked at me that way." -War, Loc 2224
...taught him what love really is. And he was right when he said
"I definitely got the better deal in this partnership." -War, Loc 5221
War filled in all the cracks in Shaina's soul. He gave her strength to finally live her life for herself. Together they really are stronger.
The love they built also helped War to see the error of his ways in regards to Tempest as well. And as much as I was feeling about all that was happening between he and Shaina, it was the interactions between he and Bryan that were powerful. The change in War - his emotional growth and the maturity he showed was heartwarming.
One of the things I admire in Mankin's writing is her bringing awareness to social issues and mental health issues. Captivating Bridge addresses depression and suicide prevention in a touching way.
War's story was an incredible one. He and Shaina came so far. I look forward to seeing them again as Tempest's story continues. I'm not sure whose story is next but I'm kinda hoping it's Dizzy's.
My journey with Michelle Mankin started off quietly and has slowly and fabulously blossomed into an amazing friendship of the heart soul and mind. When she began writing the Tempest series and came to me for inspiration, guidance, laughter and stories I was honored, embarrassed and elated. Who knew that all we shared would one day lead to me getting my very own 15 minutes of fame.
That being said, today the big release of, Captivating Bridge I am full of tears of joy and overcome with pride for my wonderful friend. She has truely reached into my heart and soul and brought it to life. Captivating by far is my favorite book that has passed through her mind and I am not just saying that to be smarmy.
A gritty rock and roll romance that wraps to unrelenting souls trapped in their own stone towers in a situation that makes you wonder if they can save each other let alone themselves. It takes a harder look at the real life issue of depression and suicide and all the emotional baggage that happens to not just the individual but every life it touches. Captivating takes your breath away with sadness and fills you up with a new hope of tomorrow.
This is a very personal story for me, and as I read each page (which I haven't seen since it was in the very rough stages) I realize just how much my soul sister's ethereal nature reaches out and embraces the world around her. I am so proud of you Michelle.
