I have been rereading some favorites during the pandemic, and this is excellent. I am so glad that I revisited it. It’s raw, honest, and emotional. The characters make mistakes and learn from those, and each other.
I went ahead and splurged and bought the next two on Audible, since I just really want to finish the series this time around and can’t seem to get copies from the libraries.
Probably my favorite M/M romance of all time, and I will definitely revisit this one.
A tough, painful read full of difficult but authentic moments. It leans hard towards the dark side, with glimpses of hopefulness.
I love that nobody is perfect. The characters unintentionally do things that are ill-advised or that sabotage themselves and their own happiness. I love that it’s messy, and real, and challenging. I love that it doesn’t all wrap up in a perfect pretty bow, and that growth takes time. I love it, because it is honest, raw, and completely authentic.
