I’m at odds with this book, mostly because the author chose to explore just how far mental instability and sexual violence could affect a relationship.
I love that it’s set in 2005/2006 and from that viewpoint if you compare with the recent insight and awareness on mental health, you cannot help but feel the frustration, fear, anger, hope, restlessness and simply put the feeling that Kady has around Nico of always walking on eggshells.
The writing has dialogue that is more in tune with new adult. It’s the first I’ve read of the author’s work and halfway through I was more impatient with the characters being caught in a web of he said/she said that I had to step back, set it aside and resume reading it when my mind was settled. Thank you Netgalley for the eARC.
About the author: I am a New Zealander with Croatian heritage. I started off as a Graphic Designer, then went to Auckland University, where I got a BA degree in Art History and Italian Studies and a post-graduate Honours degree in Art History. I worked in the Art History field, then became a full-time artist, doing commissions. I eventually lost all of my senses and gave it up to be a poor, starving writer, smh. I’m a major procrastinator that can’t seem to earn money to save myself! Married to my high school sweetheart (which he hates me calling him). We have two kids.
