Darren and Bailey had a darling, precious relationship... Until, 'his rock was tarnished'.
There's something about Darren's attraction to Bailey and his emotional tormenting that I found kind of hot. *Voice of Austin Powers* Does that make me kinky baby, yeah!
-Darren's semi-conversation with Bailey in the kitchen.
-Darren's dream revenge.
-Bailey speaking up for herself at dinner.
-Bailey answering Darren by as a challenge of his intent with her. Go Bay!
-The 3:30 am phone call.
I understand this story was written in third-person POV, however I prefer more dialogue between the characters and a little less omniscient narration.
Can't say I'd be so willing to allow a man to break or destroy me emotionally. Although I liked this book; I think it would have really captivated me if Darren were more appealing with a just completely & utterly irresistible swag. I think this would have helped me to understand/feel Bailey's need to go back to him repeatedly. Finally, although I noted this book as a page-turner, there were some sexual moments I felt were oddly (in a weird & almost creepy way) repetitive. However overall a good read.
This was a heart wrenching journey for me. I know what you're wondering... "What happened?" "Is there a cliffhanger?" "Do you get an HEA?"
Well, I'm not gonna tell you what happened. The reveal has never been more crucial to a story. There is no cliffhanger & yes, you do get an HEA. It's just a long, hard, painful journey to it. It's definitely not a cake walk. And that is what I absolutely love about this story. Nothing was easy. Oh it had it's moments of the nerve wrecking mess of it all, but it was required for this story.
Darren & Bailey broke my heart. Made me smile. Got me hot in the most erotically charged ways.
I love the flow of this story. The pacing & how their story, past & present is revealed to you in degrees. You are allowed to see the fear, the struggles, every emotion across the board. Good or bad. But in all that, you still witness the love that is ever present between them.
This book is definitely a rollercoaster. But its been done well. You totally understand both of them & the why of all the conflict. Its hard to blame Darren for his feelings just like its hard to blame Bailey for how she chooses to handle his reactions/feelings toward her. It's such a thin, painful line there, but its portrayed with the right amount of angst, heartbreak, & balance, IMO.
I would definitely recommend this read. Just have your tissues & some wine with you when you tackle it.
SOME SPOILERS AHEAD*
It was worth it. It was a very gritty, dark, and depressing book at times. There was romance, steamy sex, personal growth, the importance of family, friendship, death, taking responsibility of one's decision, etc. All in all, it was well written, but tough to read at points. Darren was a very dark and depressed man that couldn't move past his sister's death, guilt that he could have prevented it, and granting forgiveness to the women he was once in love with. At times, I wanted to smack him for how he treated Bailey, but ultimately it was his coping mechanism and couldn't blame him. It was just sad how unfortunate the accident was and how Dare couldn't see past his own grief to know it wasn't an intentional act. He treated Bailey as if she deliberately murdered his sister. Be prepared for the first 1/3 of book to go back and forth from present day to the past to really understand the background and what has happened to bring Darren to such a dark point in his life. The last 10% of the book is previews to other books, a waste of space, and I would have taken more epilogue.
The few things that I would point out are #1-been to Memphis, and Beal St is actually spelt "BEALE". #2-who was vandalizing her house? I found it odd that most of the town knew they (D and B) were hooking up, so shouldn't Darren be the person that would do the vandalizing if anyone considering he was the one directly affected by her actions 6 yrs ago? If he was ok with Bailey and had been seen socializing with her around town, I would think the townspeople would have backed off seeing that he was ok with her. Ultimately follow in his footsteps in accepting her back into society.
I would recommend this if you aren't looking for a generic fairytale romance. Lots of drama and grit here.
