Plenty of angst to be had as we follow Tink and the lads through their journey of healing and rediscovery including a secluded cottage getaway where a reconnection takes place.
Another wonderfully written book bringing us further into the lives of Birdie and her four English boybanders.
I found reading what she was put through hard and heartbreaking, knowing she couldn’t remember anything was a small comfort, but knowing it would come back to her at some point gave me this awful anxiety like some awful wave of nausea was going to come crashing down at some point.
There were parts of this book that I found hard because it cut a bit close to the bone for me but Tani Hanes really handles the hard topics well and quite realistically. This was the first book where I really felt connected to Tinker Bell and wanted nothing more than to wrap my arms around her.
The boys are very different in this novel. Teddy is broken and hurt from the pain he has been through while Tinker Bell has been through her trauma, he is trying to be strong but there is a lot he blames himself for and he needs to find his inner strength to be able to be strong for her again.
Cracks appear with the other boys as their own feelings for Tinker Bell become more prominent and their feelings about what happened become hard to handle. My heart broke over and over as I read this book. Wanting to give each of these guys a hug and make them feel loved and comforted.
This book had so much more depth and grit than the previous books. Tani Hanes has definitely taken things in a darker direction, but she’s kept the love and closeness that makes Tinker Bell’s story so addictive. It’s pretty hard to keep a series riveting by book five but I’m in deep!
A huge thanks to Tani Hanes for sending me the eBook copy which I have read and reviewed honestly.
I feel like a broken record, because I’m going to start off this review with the exact same word I began the last. Wow. Seriously. There are no other words for this book. The entire series, actually.
This was BY FAR the darkest book of the series (so far). It also happens to be the one I binge-read the most. Reading the first few books not too long ago, I could never have predicted the direction this story would go in. It was so completely unexpected, and that’s what I think made it so powerful. (Just to be perfectly clear, the “event” takes place at the end of the fourth book so we don’t start off book five completely off guard.)
I can honestly say, this was one of the best written books I have ever read. I mean it. The way Tani maneuvered through such a sensitive—and heavy—topic was unparalleled. It felt so real. Like these were real people with real sh*t happening. The first half or so of the book, I had this weird sick feeling in my stomach. All that had happened to Tinker Bell, and subsequently Teddy, Ronan, Matthew and Geth are so catastrophic and heartbreaking. This is one of those books that makes you feel, think and everything in between. The way I felt throughout this book, it was like I was reading it in a newspaper or on TV. It felt so real. The feelings were so real.
I have to give Tani an immense amount of credit. The way she navigated through the characters was phenomenal. Without giving too much away, we are dealing with a vastly different Birdie this time around. So while Tani has to do a bit of a rebuild and look at Aileen instead of Tinker Bell, she manages to enhance the boys of the band flawlessly. Teddy, Gethin, Matty and Ronan are their true selves through and through as they learn to adjust and heal. I’ve said this before, but I am completely in love with Gethin Wren and think he brings such a strong presence to the story. Your heart can’t help but break for Teddy who, in my opinion, deals with things in a very realistic way. (As a reader, I found his feelings really appropriate). And Matty and Ronan are ever the sweethearts.
The good news is, this book isn’t all sad and painful. Pleasant things do happen, things that made me smile, internally cheer and give a thousand nods of approval. It’s not a completely heartbreaking read, so don’t let the fact that it is a dark deter you from reading. The bad news is that we’re not completely resolved. I have a feeling that the next book is going to be like a band aid; things are going to get really bad before we can finally heal.
Of course, I have my hopes about how the story ends and trust that it will deliver. These books have been more of a ride than I ever could have imagined, and Tani, you are one hell of a conductor.
