Trevor Rowland is a celebrity. A theater star who is blind, to be more specific. He suffers from depression, anger, and -if I'm being honest- self pity. No thanks to a horrible ex who took all his money. He has a real serious pity party going on up in here.
He has an awesome roommate. I loved Jack immediately. He's like a pocket full of sunshine. Naturally, that grated on Trevor's nerves at first because misery loves company and Jack is a party of cheer! When I was first introduced to Jack I knew if anyone was going to shake Trevor out of this darkness it was totally going to be him.
Now I will say that I found Trevor's negativity wearing thin on me a bit. Just when I thought he was pushing through he'd pull back into the angry bitter man from the beginning of the story. Depression is a fickle beast and not something that is easily conquered. So for a lot of this story I let that slide. But in the end I did feel I'd have liked Trevor more is I felt he was more deserving of Jack.
Jack's a blue collar guy and Trevor had a lot of issues with that. It was more like he kept beating that point to death almost. I felt that made Trevor unworthy of him and that feeling lingered long after I finished the book.
The secondary characters were totally and absolutely fabulous. They gave this story a wonderfully entertaining edge and I adored all of them! Jack was by far my favorite character and I hope in Fictionland Trevor proves himself to him.
Bonnie's writing is exemplary as ever and her creativity is endless. It was an enjoyable read.
Jack is an awesome character who breathes life back into Trevor. I won't lie, his accent was a little tricky to get use to and some words left me with more than one moment of "huh?". Never though, did it detract from the beauty of his zest for life or his determination to get Trevor to see the upside of his future.
As it often is in fiction and in life, miscommunication, or lack thereof, is the angst culprit and you just want to give Trevor a good shaking. But truth is, it would have been a very short story without a little drama. All in all, historicals may be my number one sub-genre but The Mighty Have Fallen is a wonderful example that Bonnie Dee can do present as well as the past.
When we meet Trevor, he’s a cranky man being nudged to go outside with his new roommate – having to completely change his life after becoming blind. Honestly, the details about all of that aren’t readily shared – but are uncovered later on in the story. If it would have been more upfront, it would have likely tied the story together a lot sooner and better than it is currently. That being said, from the first interaction it was clear that Trevor was going to fall for his roommate, Jack. But their road coming together had several interruptions – not based on actuality, but based on their own past experiences and insecurities.
There seemed to be something there, when Jack introduces Trevor to the drag club – with the possibility of using his talents once again, but the story danced around it for several chapters, until it became a huge turning point out of nowhere. It felt a bit disjointed, but the aftermath was the most interesting part of the book.
