Intro: I have had a persistent migraine for the past couple of days. Not exactly prime for reading but I managed to manage. I read this one during the worst of the three days and it distracted me for a couple of hours. Safe to say that I loved it.
Heroine: Jennifer-I liked her. I don't think she is going on my favorite heroines list but I liked her. I did waver a bit with her. I had some moments where I loved her and others where I was a bit “meh” about her. I can't even pinpoint why.
Hero: Blake-Now this is where the book got good. I loved Blake. He was broken, bitter and angry. His PTSD was portrayed with accuracy and great care. It was sometimes not the easiest thing to read because Blake tends to walk the line between making you angry and breaking your heart.
Chemistry: In spite of my difficulties with Jennifer on her own, I actually loved Blake and Jennifer together. They were the perfect complement to each other. They both were broken in their own ways and they needed each other to recover.
Conclusion: For a book I read while experiencing a migraine, this one just breezed by. I did have a bit of trouble with Jennifer but thinking about it now, I think it was personalities not meshing. I firmly believe that can happen with fictional characters as well as actual people. Overall, I really did enjoy this book. I loved Lorenz Font's writing style and Blake was a huge highlight.
