Stephen, Simon and Elizabeth. This story threw my emotions to the wolves. I was so frustrated and irritated at some points and at others just felt the hurt emanating from the pages.
C.S. Janey weaves a story that wraps itself up and delivers it to you in an emotional package. I was given the book in exchange for an honest review and I am happy to deliver that. I start fit at around 10 at night and stayed up till the wee hours finishing it because it was that engaging. I couldn't stand to not finish it.
Elizabeth goes through quote the journey. This novel isn't insta-love, which I am not a fan of. That I was thankful for. Elizabeth hasn't had the easiest life. At all. She has her heartbroken even after years of change. Her old life it rearing its head and honestly I thought it was for the good. Stefan and Elizabeth have alive that is palpable. But it's also a love that is in the past. Until it isn't. The author weaves a story around these to that is unique and interesting. There are tinges of a love triangle and angst up to the eyeballs. They loved each other, yet they hated each other. It was a back and forth that I couldn't tear myself from.
Then there is Simon. I can honestly say I wasn't his biggest fan. Not because he wasn't a great guy, because he was. He was wonderful and perfect. Just because I was holding out for Stefen. I just loved him.
Then the story ripped me apart and I was left mouth wide open. I liked the ending. It was a HEA. It caught me by surprise, but it was overall a great novel. Can't wait to read the next in the series.
