About the Book
...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite.
Gray Porter is hiding secrets of his own. About Jess Jordan. About why he’s driven to protect her, why he won't cash her checks, or deny her anything she asks.
God, I wish I could see your face when I ask you this question.
Here goes: Is there a chance you could love me? Even a little?
Because I do – love you. And I think you know that already too.
As someone who has been the victim of sexual abuse, I was both intrigued and worried about what I should expect in this book. I am pleased to report that I found the way it was handled in a way in which I could relate. All too often I read books with raped used as a device to weaken the female lead and turn it into some ridiculous bull shit. That's not what I found in this, and I was relieved. Survivors get enough crap and we need strong stories.
Another super mega very important epic thing to mention... this is absolutely a nerdy romance. I love those so many! And the amount of references was glorious. Although it is important to note that the romance in here is very unconventional. I don't agree with the way everything happened, but I think I'm okay with it.
I have fallen so hard for Anne Eliot's writing, and I plan on reading more of her stuff - and soon. Also I recommend you all do the same. Even if Lenore recommended her stuff and she quite obviously enjoys my suffering from all the feels involved in such things.
