Publication date: 26th February 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Will I ever stop hurting the one person who’s never hurt me?
I’ve done things I can never undo.
No matter how much I wish I could, sometimes the wounds I inflict are too deep, too catastrophic, too septic to heal.
As I look into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved I know I’ve gone too far. I’ve finally crossed the line.
Even if he knew my reason for doing this, he’d never forgive me.
He always puts my needs before his own.
Now it’s my turn to protect him.
None of that matters though because the betrayal and disgust in his eyes comes from deep within his soul. There’s no coming back from this.
He will forever be tormented by what he’s seen, and he will never forgive me.
The last fragment of my heart to hold out hope that we’d share a future, withers and dies.
I have to say that this book has left me a little bit shell shocked.
Completely engrossing, this is a beautiful, if heart-wrenching, story of childhood friends and lovers. The circumstances which led to their current situation is teased out throughout this volume; an integral strand to the story arc that plays out.
It is, I think, impossible not to make a connection to these characters. Their feelings are so very raw and so alive on the pages that they are almost a tangible thing.
And, despite the gritty nature of the tale, it is a wonderfully heartfelt read. The cover completely does justice to the restrained longing of this couple.
That ending though. Sheesh.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
