Hunter and Willow both had life changing events that affected them both deeply. Hunter has severe anxiety and agoraphobia which is explained more. The foreword in the book sets the tone for the story and helps you see where the story goes. This book is the second I've read as of late that deals with mental illness and shows how important of a topic it is. While it is different in tone the message is the same that mental differences is not a barrier to love.
To be honest I wasn't familiar with Willow's mental illness Borderline Personality Disorder. It's clearer as the story goes on but it's broader than that I would think. It's clear that she has her struggles and that was hard for me to read. While she had weaknesses it was clear it was real for her. It was difficult at times to understand her character's motivations and actions maybe part of how the disorder feels like to someone on the outside. It can be chaotic her mind. I always applaud those who seek help in order to understand and get better.
She and Hunter had a unique love story it burst into the scene yet it petered out too. Heartbreaking as it is it felt necessary somewhat. Hunter seemed fantastic despite his own issues to manage and overcome. He was determined to do that to be a stroner person. It was stepping stone to improve and get better which is always good. Work on themselves individually first as two people who have issues to have a better relationship it was necessary. It's not an easy road ahead. They both deserved to find happiness. I'm happy both had a strong support system which they needed.
The HEA isn't your typical one but still beautifully done. Learning to cope and to help yourself before others is another thing the story leaves. The supporting cast made this story better and made things to look forward to. All the characters seemed interesting and authentic and well done. The Everheart brothers are good bunch that will leave you wanting more of them. Plus Hazel too.
I'm not familiar at all with mental illness, I'm almost ashamed to say but I have never been exposed so it is all relatively new to me. I despise reading books that depict weak woman as the protagonist and that is partially why this book was difficult to read. In my mind, Willow was weak because of her behavior when in fact she was dealing with a very real mental illness, Borderline Personality Disorder and Hunter is stricken with anxiety and agoraphobia. I loved the forward, it is a great introduction to the book and helped me understand and open my mind to what was to come.
I didn't cry but I got very close. The struggles that Willow goes through in her mind not understanding her illness was so difficult to read. The difficulty is trying to understand why she acted and did what she did because of her disorder. The book got easier to read as she starts to understand her feelings and learning to live with them therefore helping me understand her reactions.
The saying (excuse the non-verbatim here) 'if you love someone let them go and if they return it was meant to be', comes to mind in this book. The breakup, was so sad. At the time I didn't understand the reasoning behind it because Hunter is the absolute best character. I totally fell in love with Hunter, everyone should be so lucky to have a Hunter in their life. So Claudia style she pulled it off. Throughout their breakup he remained present in her life - his way. Hunter wanted to become the man who Willow deserved and used the time apart to get better. The extremes that he goes through to become that person was amazing.
Happy to say there was a HEA, not typical of what you would expect but a HEA none the less.
Don't pass up this opportunity. Take the challenge it is a beautifully written book.
This is the beginning of another great series by Claudia. I cannot wait. As always, the supporting cast in this book is amazing. I fell in love with all the brothers, Little Hazel, and of course Gramps. Also dying to find out what happened to Hazel and her marriage. AGH!! Can't wait!!
Oh and loved that the Colthurst-Decker gang was mentioned in passing :-)).
