After reading this book, I had to take a few days to digest, ponder, and really hash out my feelings on this one.
Cora has known Dean for fifteen years. He's engaged to her sister and anytime they are together either he's playing a prank on her or she's retaliating with her own or sarcasm, but when they are thrown into a horrific situation, they suddenly find themselves clinging to each other as a lifeline.
Dean and Cora's story is tragic and heartbreaking. I cried for them. rooted for them, and I fell in love with them. Dean is absolutely amazing. He's strong, resilient, brave, selfless, but still flawed and scared by what happened.
Cora is shattered. Her soul is wounded and she loses who she is and the ability to stand on her own two feet without Dean.
This is not my usual read. Was their steam? Yes. Some. Dean was everything. But it was also tragic and horrific, heartbreaking and beautiful. It runs the gambit of emotions. I highly recommend this book, but PLEASE check triggers. This isn't your momma's fluffy, sweet romance. What happens to these two is beyond imagining.
