simply take a chance on something different and going outside of your comfort zone.This book
is meticulously written with some chapters going back and then to the present. Mr. McCade poured his
soul into this book, the writing is flawless and it makes you feel everything that Leigh and Gabriel endured.
This book is a heart-wrenching, raw and an intense read. I had to stop, breath and just sit
for a minute to absorb the story.
Can you say that a book that makes you cry and that has a trigger warning is beautiful? YES!!!
Leigh who endured so much is just trying to figure out what she needs and has to make extremely hard choices.
Her journey is so very difficult...seeking out to find pain and pleasure the kind she feel she deserves and wants. It is
so very hard to describe this book without spoilers. You need to read this book to experience every word to
really understand Leigh's choices and her termination and her fight to gain control back of her life.
At the end of this book, there are two acknowledgements - one broke my heart, but also
was so very touching.
Everyone should have someone in there life that gives you unconditional love, that will
be there for you at the most beautiful moments in your life - the scary times and the hard times. When you
loose that, you can never replace it, but sometimes just around the corner something comes in you life and
helps to fill that void in your heart and you begin to heal.
I loved this book, I am glad I took the chance, that I persevered, it was
so worth it.
Sex is infrequent, graphic, some of it very hot.
Finished it last night and the story is still very much on my mind, scenarios for possible futures for them poke into my day. The author did not let me down, I got the HEA I needed after this dark and intense read. The writing is truly exceptional. However, that in itself seemed to make it drag for me in a number of places. Just too much internal dialog for me. I took the time I needed to come down by reading both of the Afterwords. The first addressed the handling of such dark themes and the possibility of them as triggers. I not only appreciated that he did this, but how he did it. The second Afterword nudged me from liking him as an author to liking him as a person.
As a pain nurse I had some issue with the addiction issue. He had an issue with poorly managed pain that required better management. His body had a dependence on the medication but he took it for pain. He was just set up for failure by being given a short acting med for an around the clock pain.
I also love all your afterwords about the book. It is a tiny glimpse into a caring soul. Thank you

"She always loved the ones who hurt her."
I'm going to be vague, I'm not going into much detail because doing so risks taking away something special; the not knowing. Not knowing where the story was heading, how and if Leigh and Gabriel can overcome their demons, individually and together, and not knowing if they are even right for one another. It wasn't entirely the story I was expecting; I knew it held taboo elements, but everything enveloping this was so much more than I could have anticipated.
It's a story that will stab at your heart. It's is one of acceptance and so much more, and for someone who's not particularly a crier, there were tears; painful and joyful. Some parts don't make easy reading, but they are vital to the story and are written with compassion and consideration. But amongst the dark there are plentiful heat-filled moments along with those that will make you smile and those that will make your heart sigh, lifting you exactly when you need it and bringing the hope that you so crave.
"I will hurt you in any way you want to be hurt. But I need to know you want it, first."
This is a character-driven novel that will make you feel and its slightly longer length really gives readers the opportunity to get to know Leigh and Gabriel; understand them, accept, love and appreciate them for the damaged, lost, yet strong, passionate souls they are. Cole McCade is a talented author, I loved his contemporary romance, A Second Chance at Paris, but this just highlights how versatile in his craft he is.
Sie ist verstörend und bezaubernd zugleich, sie ist düster und gleichzeitig magisch. Cole McCade hat eine Art Wörter in Bilder umzusetzen wie kaum ein anderer - und das wird in seinen späteren Werken noch deutlicher.
Ich war so fasziniert, dass ich selbst noch bei seinem Nachwort sprachlos war. Denn er trifft damit den Nagel auf den Kopf. Es gibt so viele Nischen, so viele Grautöne in unserer heutigen Gesellschaft, die viele nicht vestehen und sogar abartig finden. Solange sich Menschen finden, die im gegenseitigen Einvernehmen bestimmte Neigungen ausleben ist das in Ordnung und sollte respektiert werden. Aber man darf seine Augen bei Missbrauch nicht verschließen und manchmal ist das eine Gratwanderung, bei der man sich selber nicht verlieren darf.
Die Charaktere in dieser Geschichte waren manchmal soweit weg, dass ich sie schütteln wollte, um ihnen zu sagen "seht ihr denn nicht?" und manchmal waren sie so nah, dass ich von ihren Emotionen überschüttet wurde.
Wer Bücher von Cole McCade liest, darf kein sanftes Gemüt haben - nicht umsonst stehen die Warnungen vor jeder Geschichte - aber ich bin jedes Mal überrascht, wie tief sie einem dann doch in ihren Bann ziehen. Dies war keine leichte Geschichte, und mit Sicherheit nicht die Beste, die ich von ihm gelesen habe, aber nichts desto trotz, war es die erste, bei der ich eine Rezession schreiben musste...
I did pass on some paragraph that I really didn't want to read about but for most of the book I enjoy this story.
Sad n emotional for me but good
Enjoy reading it u won't regret it
