It has been a long time since I have read a book that I felt so much empathy and connection with the characters. Liquid & Ash is nothing like Abel’s other series and don’t get me wrong, I love those books. However, Liquid & Ash made me feel so much my soul hurt for these characters.

Penelope didn’t have the easiest life growing up, but she decided early on to learn from her mother’s mistakes. She decided she wasn’t going to rely on a man or look for love, her greatest purpose was to accomplish her goals first. She wanted the security she never had before, but she wanted that security to come from herself.

The story is told in present tense but there are moments of reflection where we get to see her past. The first is seeing Penelope meet Derek. Derek is a sexy Marine who pursues Penelope with everything he has until she gives in. You see these swoon-worthy moments, but know things didn’t work out as planned. It’s ten years later and Penelope discovers Derek has been cheating on her.

First, there is nothing in the world like cheating. It affects people on so many levels and makes them doubt everything they knew. It affects their self-esteem, self-worth and question the trust they thought they had. Penelope’s failing marriage also reminds her of how she gave up her whole life for Derek. Her whole adult life was dedicated to being what he wanted and in the end, it wasn’t enough.

Seeing Penelope struggle and hurt broke my heart. I completely felt for this woman and as the story progressed grew to love her. As I was reading I was her biggest fan. I loved her perseverance, determination, and fire. I love how she had her moments of sadness and pity, how she mourned the loss of the life she thought she would have, but I really loved seeing her move on.

This is the first book I've read by this author and based on the subject matter, I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm happy to say that I really appreciated this book. L&A was a thought provoking story about a woman (Penelope) who realizes with slow and painful clarity that her marriage is coming to an end. It's told in present tense with flashbacks that give a glimpse into what marks the beginning of the end.

"I just wanted someone to want me, to miss me when in was gone. I wanted love. It was all I'd ever wanted".

E.M. Abel painted such a vivid picture of Penny's pain and sense of "numbness' that I couldn't help but feel a connection. There were times I wanted to hug her through her pain, shake her out of self medication and applaud her for her strength and determination.

I liked that she was given a love interest (Brandon) prior to leaving her husband but she didn't cheat She was attracted to Brandon and considered cheating but chose to walk away; chose to leave an unsatisfying marriage and work on herself first. Fast forward about 6 mos and she meets Brandon again and they decide to enter a no faking, no promises type of relationship. Brandon was a good guy but had a lot of scars from his past and had difficulty admitting his feelings, not to mention making a commitment. I loved that Penny embraced her journey and even though she fell in love with Brandon and realized he couldn't give her more; she knew that she was worthy and deserved more. I loved that, in the end, she chose herself and allowed Brandon the time and headspace to change on his own.

This was a gem of a story about life, love, heartache, acceptance, independence and finding value in yourself...........d:)

It took me quite a while to get this read…life often interrupts…perhaps that is why I didn’t completely connect the way I had hoped with this read. I really love this author’s style and her writing as it is always a bit rough…true and gritty. I was going in completely prepared for angst, passionate drama and tortured love that I know she does so well. Unfortunately, I didn’t find my heart wrenching with the story or with the characters.

I have read through most of the reviews and found them so good, so beautiful with the images and the quotes. I wanted to have the same emotional tug. I wanted to be gutted and put back together as well. I think this is perhaps a complete case of a “ME” issue. Maybe it was the fast fall into a love…the flashbacks of a sweet first love in between the present scenes of pure relationship hell. Just as Penelope and her husband, Derek were struggling, so was I. I felt a bit “numb” to most of the beginning of the book and was desperately waiting for the big moment…the big bad. Not that the loss of a marriage isn’t bad, but it wasn’t unexpected either.

So with a heavy heart, Penelope finally puts herself first and moves on from a marriage of mediocrity and lack of fulfillment. She moves on step by step, building blocks toward a future and along the way develops a relationship all in hope of not losing herself again. Enter Brandon…he looks bad and has the rep to back it up. He may be just as lost as she it. Obviously they connect and they experience more together than either has ever had.

All sounds good and flowing. For me this read was as follows: Failed marriage leads to heartbreak and self-discovery. Journey toward more allows for taking risks and enjoying life. Intimacy is found without the sacrifice of one’s self.
