Former best friends that held back secrets from each other that caused a rift. We get into the thick of things unraveling then the aftermath. Then fast forward to their relationship shifting. Things have changed between them, things happened they can't change. Theo holds a lot of hurt and resentment towards his family. This side of him is the one he struggles to keep to everyone closest to him. Trinity on the other hand masks her emotions, hides behind her guilt.
Theo and Trinity are both gifted artists, one at drawing, the other creating beautiful one of a kind dresses. With artists come sensitive souls, deep ones that have many feelings. I like how art is incorporated into this story. I can imagine the imagery. I have to note the nod on Asian culture here (yey) because diverse characters are much appreciated.
While I felt it got a little stressful and intense at times, due to family issues being tackled. Theo is patient I'll give him that, Trinity has her walls up so fast it can get tiresome. But he worked through it. I honestly wondered why she didn't go through much needed grief counseling way back before. Seeing as it affected her so much in everything. She can be prickly in effort to guard her heart.
<b><i> " Wherever this journey takes us, you are always a part of me. " </b></i>
Their story is full of anguish and heartache, I wanted them get past all that so much and find happiness. It's evident they care a lot for each other, they just need to let go of the past. Move forward together and deal with everything else. I felt bad for them, they had to get past a lot. I'm more partial second half of the book when you start to piece things and it all came together. I like the friendships they all had it was so evident throughout the series.
M. R. has a poetic writing style that will draw you in the story. While I know this writing style may not be for everyone, I think it's seldom found. Trinity and Theo had a volatile chemistry together, a great friendship despite and their emotions ran high. Their journey was worth it, the highs and lows it stood strong. One of the more complex and emotional friends to lovers, as a fan of the series I enjoyed this installment.
There is something so special about reading a book that touches your heart and reading words by an author who understands how specific situations can bring out such strong emotions in there characters.
“Like a flamed arrow, grief punctures all that it passes. It nips. It tears. It bleeds. I want to be rid of this ache I feel. I want to feel something else. To remember without the pain crippling me. But the guilt tethers itself, reminding me what I have done. What I failed to do."
Fractures is a story of love between a boy and a girl, love between a father and a son and a mother and a daughter. It's a story of second chances. And sometimes third and fourth.
Fractures broke me. It was an emotional and heart wrenching read.
We are first introduced to the Female protagonist, Trinity. A strong willed and stubborn heroine who is struggling with the path her life is on and the guilt that she carries with her constantly. She has essentially put her life on hold, believing she doesn’t deserve the good things that life has to offer. Trinity came off originally as strong yet weak, impetuous yet cautious depending on the situation she was thrown into. I loved how much she stood up for those she cared about and fought for them when they needed it yet struggled to do the same for herself.
“My souls drenched in misery, and I ache for my broken heart to break entirely, to take me with her"
With Trinity, comes Theo. Theo is the quiet and strong type who had a difficult childhood. He has secrets which you learn quite early on in his story. He loves whole and completely when given the chance and thrives when that love is returned. He’s the quiet romantic with a dark side that you can’t help but love.
“Our connection simmers between us. We cling to and thrive on the seductive torture. For years we’ve been caught up in an evocative dance, our friendship being the common thread that holds us together. Our emotions are too volatile. A side look, a slight touch of the hand-all minor gestures that have led up to the moment we are now in."
The dynamic between Trinity and Theo is real and raw. They each bring out the best in each other. They’ve experienced there best and worst moments with the other and for lack of a better term complete each other.
I was enamoured by how well M R Field captured the emotions of the characters through the different situations they were thrown into. Her writing style is one I’ve come to love with each word I take in. The descriptive way in which she writes speaks to the poet hidden in me. The hopeless romantic who falls in love with words spoken and words written. I highlighted a number of exquisite quotes in Fractures that were worded so perfectly.
“Choose a life full of colour, and never ever hold onto regret”
“She is the resin that casts my fractured soul, fusing it together. Finally.”
I highly recommend Fractures to anyone who loves a second chance love story. The angsty, ugly cry kind that fill your heart with that feeling that can’t be explained. Fractures is a 5 start read that deserves your time and adoration.
