While this was a heavy book, going in to details of what Ares went through, I had moments nearing the end where I wanted to throw my kindle at a wall. A pillow at the very least nearly found its way across the room.
I wish the book had had its focus on Ares's recovery and Kohan's family trouble. It would have been enough. Bringing back the ex, who I recognised early on, didn't add to the story.
It just made me angry with Kohan, as his way of handling things seemed out of character for him. And hence the kindle throwing, or close call of that.
And I feel that because of that, it didn't give full closure for me. With so much invested time in Kohan's and Ares's families, we didn't get their meeting, the brothers bantering over meeting the boyfriend. Or even how Carey was dealing with this life altering thing. It was just left in the open and it frustrates me after finishing it.
Poor Ares is just trying to move on with his life after escaping his abusive husband and putting the man in jail. He meets Kohan, who just wants to be his friend and help him fight his inner demons. The two have their ups and downs, eventually becoming more than friends. Kohan is the perfect friend right from the start. He's there for Ares, not flinching or running when Ares reveals parts of his past. Kohan is understanding, attentive, and listens without judgement. A good ending, after they go through a few days of hell.
Although this was a good book, the typos kept bogging me down, and this is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. There were two spots in the book where an entire paragraph was repeated! What person/people edited this? There are words missing as well (although I know some of that is the way the British language is), and then there are missing endings on words for past tense, present tense, and it's 'they rolled the stretcher PAST me', not PASSED me. Sorry to be nit picky, but those types of things should have been found by the editors (especially the repeated paragraphs!).
Some books you read because they're intense - nail-biting, making your heart beat faster, making you sweat.
And then there are books like this one - brutal yet brilliant, sad yet beautiful, heartbreaking yet filled with hope. Ares will simultaneously break your heart and fill you with awe - awe at his strength, awe at his courage, awe at his ability to not only survive but still be a functioning (albeit somewhat broken) human being. And Kohan, dear, sweet Kohan - what a beautiful knight in shining armor, what a beacon of hope, what an amazing (although not perfect) man.
This is a tough read, I will say that. But when you think about the Ares' of the world - the real men (& women) who endure brutality at the hands of the one who supposedly loves them.....aren't a few tears from you a small price to pay? Damn right they are - and you'll not only feel better when you make it to the end....you'll be a better person - a more understanding one, more patient, more loving, more appreciative.
How can you not be?
Kohan sees Ares as the strongest man ever for what he has been through! Even though what Ares needs is a friend, Kohan can't help but fall in love with him and wants nothing more than to protect him!
Broken man who wants to love and man who will do everything in his power to be the strength that he needs!

with a title like that l knew l would need tissues,it was such an emotional read,
there was so much pain , so much courage and so much suffering.
Ares was like a fragile flower, his confidence completely destroyed,
his body bearing witness to the abuse he suffered at the hands of someone he loved.
Scared and lonely, he struggles to live a life that he wishes.
Until you learn about what he had to live through, you then realise he is a survivor.
Kohan is sweet and kind and easy going, not having that special someone in his life,
his best friend Sophie is loyal and funny, totally without any filter,
together with his big loving family and his job he is content with his life.
An accidental trip has Ares stumbling into his life ,
like a hurricane his life is turned upside down,as he tries to befriend this enigmatic man.
Nothing prepares him for the reality of Ares, as he tries to gently coax him out of hiding.
With a strong attraction, and lots of sexual chemistry
these two try to navigate the choppy waters of a life filled with fears of all kind.
This story is not an easy read, l felt so many different emotions,
knowing that there are people suffering like that daily is a horrible feeling.
l loved Kohan with his endless patience and Ares with his strength and ability to love again.
My heart broke for these two amazing men kohan and Ares Ares trying to get away from the person who abused him for years he was so strong he meets Ares a wonderful man who shows him the right way to treat somebody
The connection with these two is amazing you can feel it on every page
I really connected with kohan and Ares on a personal level they stole my heart
I cried but the tears and emotion are so worth the tears
