Haden has completely fallen apart. The stress of Tenley leaving him opens the floodgates to his unresolved feelings about his parents' murder. One night after a particularly traumatic dream of Tenley lying in bed with a bullet hole in her chest Haden calls Tenley. Groggy from sleep she picks up the phone and is basically surprised that her actions affected him. ????? How do you leave your boyfriend and not think that will affect him? She runs a few errands and then drives to Chicago that night. Instead of going directly to him even though he's in such a mess she tries to find her female friend who has a key to her apartment so she can sleep before talking to Haden (knowing that he has nightmares that are crushing him). Haden also has a key. The friend doesn't pick up her calls so Tenley goes to the strip club where the friend works and runs into Haden's longtime f-buddy who wants him back. Despite feeling she has to drop everything to get to him she manages to do several errands back home and chase her friend around for a while. It's a lot of dumb plot mechanisms to create strife.
The saving grace for me is that Tenley has destroyed Haden's trust in her and he doesn't let her off easily. She does a fair amount of groveling and their relationship takes time to repair. Once again, we experience this through the characters thanks to the first person point of view of each of them.
This book is mostly about Haden finally dealing with his parents' deaths and I found that very interesting.
One thing really bothered me, though. Love is described as "This is what love felt like - this unyielding, overwhelming need for someone that wiped out everything else." THIS IS UNREALISTIC. LOVE IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE. I know people who are denying themselves love because no matter what they feel for a person, unless it falls under this exact description it must not be true love, which is really sad. People, Inked Armour's description of love is artistic license - the hyperreality of romance novels. I love my husband more than anything and ours is a quiet happiness that we can dip into to feel strong and it helps us deal with the things life throws at us. Your experience with love can be the same as in this book, but it probably won't be because you're not fictional and because you and your partner aren't Tenley and Haden.
Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I do want to say that I liked this book. There is another short story about two of the other characters, but I'm going to skip it.
Hayden and Tenley's are not together but, they still think about each other. Tenley hopes Hayden will want her when she comes back. Hayden thinks she doesn't want him and it's over. Is it?
With an ex from hell that never was more than a release,the cop with an attitude and the "brother-in law" that makes you want to punch him, Hayden and Tenley don't have things easy.This story continues to have the angst,tenderness, and love with characters we hate, characters we love and closure at the end.
I enjoyed the writing style of this author and couldn't put it down. I wish it was a little longer but then, don't we all wish that when we read a really good story?
