I received an ebook of this from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Annie Arcane!
My, my, my, I am now a fan of Annie Arcane's writing. So much of a fan. Her personality and humour truly shines through in every single sentence she writes. I loved the thought fragments in sprinkled about in the novel. And can I say that Mickey and Mel are truly like myself and my best friend? Animals noises? Check. Weird conversations where someone says something ludicrous and the other just rolls with it? Double check.
This is a beautiful about to beautifully broken people so wrapped up in their self-doubt that they have trouble finding and admitting the love they have for each other. It's not a picture perfect love story, but it works for Mickey and Cale, and I gotta say, I ws quite distressed three quarters of the way through the novel. So much so that I sent crying emojis to Annie herself - no regrets.
Truly an important message is portrayed in this book that everyone is deserving of love, no matter how lost and broken we may be. That sometimes, one just needs to find that special someone who breathes life back into them - it may not be easy, but definitely worth it.
Again, huge fan of the writing - and obviously Annie. Also a plus, she's a fellow great white northian. Yes, I just wrote that down. No judging.
