I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you NetGalley!
Wow. What a ride this was. Elisa Marie Hopkins, I bow to you and this masterpiece of literature you have created. This book was witty, deeply emotional, thrilling, enticing, and captivating from beginning to end. Exquisite and insightful writing about human behaviour following trauma, about trust and relationships. Although this book is classified as a 'romance' novel, it wasn't the main focus if the book; I mean it was in the sense that it focused building a relationship from shattered pieces and glueing them back together making an imperfect vase - a diamond in the rough, but it wasn't a book that paid much attention to the physical aspect of the relationship.
This was by far, one of my favourite books I have read. It kept me on my toes the whole length of the read. Even though the book was lengthy, it didn't feel long as I read it. Everything was nice and concise, the author never dwelling too long on unimportant aspects of the book. It kept a steady pace throughout and had great fluidity.
Overall, this was a beautiful book by a very talented author. I am beyond excited to read what else she has in store for us in the sequel.
