"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.
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.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I struggled with this book at times, its a great read but parts made me very uncomfortable. Its quite dark, and not a HEA, fluffy, light romance but one that’s really gripping, and at times emotionally draining.
I so felt for Leigh, it was clear she was running from something, using the streets and her lifestyle as some kind of an escape, sort of just marking time but also to me seeming to punish herself. She’s having sex with total strangers daily, but only for the minutest fraction of time does it give her pleasure, a momentary escape, so why is she doing it? Its almost like she’s punishing herself. And I wanted to know why. Why did she push everyone away who tried to help? Why was she on the streets? What happened in her past? Why wasn’t anyone looking for her.
Gary, the bar owner, seems to see her as a kind of lost child and does his best to help, but within her strict boundaries – he gives her a place to at least leave her belongings safely, have a shower, wash her clothes, even if she rarely stays there herself. Then she meets Gabriel and he seems to know what she needs, to offer more, but he’s not a man to be treated lightly. He needs to be in control, he needs to call the shots but he’s so careful not to scare her away. He’s also got demons in his past though, and they have a tenuous rapport that starts off badly. I felt like Leigh and Gabriel were walking on eggshells most of the time, and at any moment something would crack and break their fragile relationship. I so wanted something positive for Leigh, she seems so brittle, fragile, damaged and made me want to cry for her at times.Read more ›
