This was one of the most emotionally exhausting reads I have read in a while. I had to sit it aside a couple times to just take a break from it. Going into the story I was pretty clueless how dark and disturbing this one was going get. I guess I should have paid closer attention to the blurb. The things that took place weren't shocking nor did they bother me. I just didn't pay the necessary attention I should have to what the book was about. Am I the only one who didn't see any trigger warnings in the blurb? It needs to have trigger warnings for those who are triggered by physical or sexual abuse. By drug abuse. I'm sure their might be others but I can't think of them.
Warren has his demon's but they are not nearly as dark as Taylor's. Taylor could go from sweet to volatile pretty damn quickly when something triggers him. He screams, hits, says awful things, then begs and cries to be hurt. It's horrific to read and I didn't exactly like some of the ways Taylor was dealt with. (view spoiler) I feel saying much more would give a lot away to this story. So I will just say that it was an emotional, heartbreaking, and sometimes, hard to read book. I liked Warren and had trouble liking Taylor. I felt for them both and liked them together. I especially liked their ending. But some of the book fell flat and dragged a bit. I still am looking forward to the stories I am sure will be coming involving Warren's 3 best friends.
Happy reading dolls! xx
Also, some might say that cheating was involved. However, IMO given Taylor’s mindset one can understand. In addition, Warren is a big boy and can make his own decisions.
Therefore, if you do not like the above subject matter, then you might just want to skip this story (and possible series) all together. Become goodness know what Marie Sexton has in store for us next.
I happened to like this story. I feel completely horrible and at a loss for words for the path that Taylor has had to travel in life. Seriously, my heart goes out to him and everything he’s endured. It doesn’t help that Warren’s life hasn’t been so great as well. Both characters damaged, yet seeming to thrive without much. That is until they meet one another. It takes time, but they do find their way eventually. Especially with one another’s help.
I do agree with my GR friend Lyn, and I do hope that we are given more info on these two MCs in the next book. Because even with the HEA seemingly set up, it is still on fragile ground.
Dark themes of sexual abuse, BDSM, and addiction make it a complex, nuanced read. The main characters are beautifully drawn and remain true to themselves. Marie Sexton understands how to deliver exposition, build to a climax, then step through the falling action into dénouement in a true epilogue. She never takes the easy way out. There's no deus ex machina, rather an engaging plot that did not pull a single punch.
I fell in love with both of the main characters and how they learned to communicate with each other, touch each other's hearts.
If you can handle truly painful topics - handled tastefully - then One Man's Trash will reward you in the end.
