Personal Review:

This was an ok romance between two survivors. I really got into the first half of the story but then the main characters started to play on my nerves a bit.

Random Ramblings

  • Prologue…and I’m hooked!
  • Mark was an asshole…I don’t trust relationships were couples live together for several years but don’t get married…something is up and it’s always bad
  • Loved that Christina verbally kicked Marks’ arse
  • Great ‘Friends’ reference
  • I’m not fond of picky eaters
  • I started to get vibes that they are both alcoholics
  • The toe stuff made me gross out
  • I wasn’t comfortable with how easily he lied to her
  • A lost some faith in the h because her younger sister went through so much and yet did not complain once and always stood by the h…it made the h appear selfish

Overall Feeling:

 “I am strong. I have armor. A bulletproof heart and resolve of steel. I don’t need anyone but me. But of course the truth is that my armor has chinks. My heart has cracks. And the steel is corroding at the edges. I do need someone.”
