From the start you can tell this is going to be a bit gloomy. Also if you know the characters at all. If you haven't read the series I highly suggest you should just to get a back story and a feel for the characters. I loved also having Park, Chase and Hope in here. I love them all and it's always nice when they come in and support their friends. Ian attempted suicide and is in rough condition. He has been battling his demons and Guy isn't sure he will pull through so he stays by his side and reminisces back to an unconscious Ian some of their memories. It was very, very sad and was playing at the heart strings. You really didn't know if he would wake up or not. And I am not going to tell you if he does or doesn't. It was sad and beautiful and I loved every second. Cheryl does it yet again. Amazing, short read! I highly recommend everyone read this amazing series. The writing is flawless and the characters are transfixing.
"I want him. All of him. For now. For tomorrow. Forever."
"You're perfect. You're perfect to me. You're perfect for me."
"I love you," I say. "Five-ever" I nod. "Because forever isn't long enough."
There were a few issues with the writing, including a few editing mistakes. Like Guy going home and cleaning up the bathroom. Wouldn't it have been a crime scene at some point? There has to be some investigation and photos taken, even if it wasn't foul play. Also, when leaving the tattoo parlor, why did Guy have a bandage over his but Ian's were exposed (no mention of removing bandage, Guy just looked at them)? Also, and this is just my opinion, Ian seemed a bit spoiled & needy. I know everyone who suffers from depression and anxiety doesn't act the same, but judging by the fight where Ian kept saying all those nasty things to Guy, and throwing things at him and destroying a picture, then forcing himself on Guy, Ian seemed more manipulative than anything. Guy seemed way more invested. This is probably not how the author intended it to be, but that's how it read to me.
Reading about Guy and his love for Ian blew me away. I have always enjoyed Guy and the special bond he had with Hope. He deserved a good man in his life and Ian is that one. Watching through both their eyes in Let It Be about how they dealt with being a gay couple was at times painful. But it was true and even through the pain, there was always love and hope and yes even faith that it could all work out.
Cheryl McIntyre has taken a difficult subject and given it the respect it deserves. What Ian goes through is something that is so common place. Yet it doesn't have to be filled with shame. Instead the author showed that when you are truly loved, anything is possible.
This entire series has been so wonderful and I will miss these characters so much. I was happy to see Hope be there for her friend and see how far she has come from that damaged girl from long ago.
I applaud the author for consistently giving us stories that warm the soul. It is a true pleasure reading her books.
A huge 5 stars and highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.
Depression is a tough subject for any story. The wide range is mentioned from the signs of depression to how deep it can go and the path back with therapy and meds. It isn't easy and not only does Ian have to learn to handle it, so does Guy. And I have to add that the suicide in this story is not first hand, just the results after the fact. The desperate act wasn't due to being gay and no, what happened wasn't anyone's fault. It isn't about blame. Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain. I am assuming that Ian had chemical depression which can reoccur. It isn't something to 'snap' out of it. This type of depression is too deep for that. It needs the right meds at the right dose and monitored by a psychiatrist along with therapy. All this is covered in the story. It's a heart wrenching process and as a reader we're dragged along with Ian and Guy. But what a story.
Let It Be could be dark and sad but it's written to leave us with hope and redemption. It's enlightening and once you read it you won't forget. - Dan's Wife
