The life I have dreamed of…obliterated.
How will he look at me?
How can he accept me?
He'll know what I hid from him.
He'll know everything.
It’s over. It’s completely over. I can't tell him "I love Us" anymore.
Even though I do.
Even though it will kill me.
I can't tell him anything. Everything is ruined. Pummeled. Broken.
I have to leave him. I have to give up us.
I know he'll come after me.
I just have to do something to make him not want to.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is an emotional read, having made me cry not even 5% into it! The struggle Finley is facing is something I know all to well about, and it hit me pretty hard. Because of that, it took me about a week to finish this book - even though it really is a fast read. I had to put it down and leave it for a while to get back my bearings so I could finish it with my sanity intact.
My biggest issue was with the editing. There were a good amount of misplaced commas and words that made absolutely no sense in the context they were used. Example, "we were penurious for each other and felt an intense passion and connection..." which is saying they're bad for each other, but the entire rest of the book says otherwise.
I found myself very emotionally connected to the story, and was quite fond of the characters.
