This book was so not the style of my current reads; it's written in first person and frankly, while there are several passionate moments between Leah & Liam, it wasn't the usual freak fest I've been immersed in lately- there was actually so much tenderness. The first 30% depressed me~ seriously bawl like a baby, want to drown my sorrows in Jack, and made me wonder why the hell I was torturing myself reading it. Maybe it was because I related a bit too closely to Leah; but I am so glad I continued. While the conclusion is open ended so as a reader I was left to assume a HEA, it was nice to experience the MC's healing and growing strength as she climbed out of her pit. From the first page, the author that had me blubbering one minute and then hoping, cursing, cheering and finally sighing; it was well worth the emotional rollercoaster I encountered- this book will stay with me.
