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
I highly recommend it if you can handle the dark themes.
First off, no matter how I feel about this book, it is absolutely not one for everybody. It runs along a very dark side and deals with some seriously ugly subject matter that will just flat out be unappealing to some (addiction and abuse for some specifics). That said, that dark is liberally laced with spots of brightness and the better aspects of humanity shining through.
I thought this was beautifully written, no matter the subject matter. It pinged on several concepts of right and wrong that I’ve been pondering a lot lately, so some of those background themes really resonated with me. Even though I don’t usually go for dark books like this, I did really like it. Probably because of how many of those issues were presented and dealt with. There was no preaching to either direction, side, or right or wrong, simply presented as just the way it is.
The very imperfect humanness of the characters and their situations made them feel real. That kept me skirting this edge of compassion and understanding for them. It didn’t tip me into being overly emotional about them. That and the darker side that isn’t my favorite kept this from getting that slightly higher rating.
Even with the heavier nature of this, it does have a positive ending for the main characters. That is probably the other reason why this did work for me. I wouldn’t have like it even a fraction as much if this had not had that kind of ending.
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.
