Liam has hit rock bottom...if he doesn't stop what is left, death? Maybe that would be better, Tria was gone and so was his H... he has nothing. Tria is out there alone, he has to find her, but first things first a visit with the ever hilarious Dr. Baynor, will it work this time?
Be sure to start the series with book one - Takedown Teague!!!
- “So you aren’t completely stupid,” he said, “just mostly stupid.”
- I was never one to beg, but when there’s nothing left to lose, everything’s left to gain.
- “We’re going to try a little eye movement desensitization and reprocessing treatment as well.”“Are you going to start speaking English at some point?”
- No one could make a guarantee like that. There were buses just waiting to run over people.
- I thought the whole prep thing was ridiculous. She was going to eat, sleep and sh!t. What did you need besides diapers, a crib, and Tria’s boobs?
- Not that I was complaining. Complaining would likely get me killed.
- “It’s all about sacrifice,” I whispered. “Right? It’s not what we want anymore but what she needs.”
- “You’re going to spoil her,” a matronly nurse scolded me. I managed to withhold actually speaking the words f*** you but tried to at least say them with my eyes. She squared her shoulders and stomped off.
- She looked like she had been in a fight with me in the cage, but I wasn’t about to tell her that. I liked my balls attached.
- “Don’t swear,” I replied with a smile. Tria rolled her eyes.
- Did I want to be in a piss-ant shop with mullet-boy on second shift, or did I want to be more than that?
- I didn’t have to hide behind the bars of a cage any longer.
- “Don’t say something that isn’t true just because you think you are going to get what you want. Ask for what you want and the real reason why;”
Crazy Katie makes another appearance in this book, it's a small roll she plays, but it's a vital one. Even though she's insane, what she says makes sense if you think about it! I enjoyed her character and I wish there could have been more of her in the story. But, her part is poignant and it helps Liam along in his journey of self awareness.
I think the only thing I had issue with is the pace of this story, it was a little slow. I found myself skipping through parts that felt repetitive. And I think I would have liked it better if Liam had made these changes not just for Tria, but for himself too. He was a bit too much of a neanderthal at times, and I wanted to smack him upside his head.
All in all this is a good story, and I really like where it ended up. And, as always, I really enjoy Shay's unique way of telling the story from the guys point of view.
Liam is not your typical romance bad boy hero. He's not just a collection of rough edges waiting to be smoothed by the right woman. He's pretty severely damaged emotionally, and it shows in his reactive personality and lack of real attachment to anyone but Tria. He didn't mean for her to leave, and his reasons for running out in a panic make sense, even if they're not an excuse for the way that action comes across. But now that she's gone, he's beyond lost, and for a dangerous while, he lets the rest of his world fall apart. For someone like Liam, rock bottom has a whole new meaning.
We watch Liam fall apart, lose his job, wander the streets, and ask for help. But finding Tria doesn't fix everything, and she's still not sure she can trust him to stay around and stay off drugs. Still, he puts her and the baby first, and in a rather fortunate turn of events, they finally begin to reconcile.
Released is a story of closure, a series of falls that lead to Liam finally facing his past, his problems, and his shortcomings with Tria and becoming a better man for it. He can't erase the past, but he finally confronts it, allowing himself to see how his family wasn't alone in making poor choices, and eventually dealing with the grief and trauma he's been bottling up and only unleashing in cage fights for so long. Fortunately, though, he doesn't lose that edginess that makes him such an interesting character to begin with. He's still crass and crude, still prone to anger and overreaction, but he's also cognizant of the consequences of flying off the handle and avoiding responsibility. Liam's journey from drifting to settling down is one hell of a read.
