I've given this a bit of thought now...though I probably will do a bad job explaining how I feel. First let me say it is very well written. And not at all what I was expecting. I can't say that I "enjoyed" it as I think I was holding my breath through a good portion and I felt weight pressing down on my chest and only when I would break or when I finished did I realize just how tense my body was. There were several emotions this story evoked. I was sad and angry and heartbroken and hopeful and frustrated and disappointed and happy.
It was rough. It was emotional. This is not some sweet love story. Having said that, it is definitely worth the read. There are such honest moments of trust and affection between our two MCs ...it makes the toughness worth it.
Would read more from this author.
