That’s all it was supposed to be. No strings attached, no feelings, no heartache.
But if I thought Sean Riley would be content having only parts of me, I was dead wrong. His persistence wore me down and I found myself in the one situation I was trying to avoid.
Little does he know a life with me will lead to nothing but disappointment and heartbreak. He’s a good man and deserves everything I can’t give him. Not because I don’t want to, but because I’m unable.
Pushing him away in the beginning was to protect me, now I’m trying to protect him as I gear up for the fight of my life.
A fight I could lose.
Getting into a relationship was my risk, but as things get worse, I’m not the only one who will have something to lose.
I just hope it’s worth it.
This is an elegantly woven story that didn’t shy away from the gritty nature of the plot. The characters were colourfully described and were easy to connect and empathise with.
The easy relationship between the two was a perfect balance against the heartache that is explored within the pages of this story.
And yes, in case you’re wondering – I did cry at points in this book. The author succeeding in drawing a deep emotional response from me with this novel. And I still loved it.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
“Come back to me,” I finally plead.
She looks into my eyes and there’s so much pain I can’t stand it. “I don’t know how.” Her voice is strained as she tries to hold back the tears.
“Let me help you.” I cup her face and she leans into it.
“I just want to stop feeling this way and I can’t.” A tear falls down her cheek.
She pauses and says, “Empty.”
