this book took me a long time to read because of a slight reading slump and a busy life. the book itself is no way to blame as it was absolutely wonderful!!

firstly, the representation in this book !!!! AHHH *chefs kisses* ! you do not see a lot of books with mc’s who have chronic illness or are plus sizes, and talia tackled the topics so perfectly. not just with chloe, but red too!! i wont go into detail about that because it will spoil some of the book.

i absolutely adored both chloe and red, separately and together !!! 🥰 so many emotions while reading this book. maybe i should find someone to help me get a life!

I have to admit that I was not fully prepared to jump into this amazing story. True, I was aware of the diversity and that the female lead had a chronic illness/chronic pain, but this book was so much more and completely refreshing.

First, I love that the "heal me handsome" trope was avoided, but there was still room for both parties to support, care for, and promote growth and healing for each other. It was as it should be: a relationship is a place of safety, not a cure all. It was beautifully done. 

Second, I loved how naturally the story progressed, and especially how it showcased that two people can hurt each other without trying, that sometimes one person's coping mechanism can be another's trigger, and that it is possible to work around those things while you grow to understand your partner. 

Above all, this story was about emotional healing after trauma. Fear is a very real, debilitating thing; choosing to live again despite pain and trauma takes bravery and courage. You are the only one who can choose life over fear; no one else can do it for you.

This was an amazing, cathartic read, and I'm excited to get into Dani and Eve's books.

I’m not even going to leave a proper review as it did not did it for me. As someone who grew up with a person with a chronic illness the representation from my experience was insanely on point. But Chloe was extremely annoying, they both behaved like 16 year olds even though they’re almost the double. I wanted to like it so bad. 😭
