OH MY HEART...
AS IF the angst from book one wasn’t enough, I went through emotional deja-vu-kill-me-now moments in book 2! I thought I knew what I wanted as a reader, but now I’m all screwed up and I have no clue if what I initially wanted is what I wanted in the end. My feelings are mush but I wouldn’t have it any other way because WOW. If you could here the sounds that were coming from my body... it’s as if I were possessed at times<—-my family can attest to this. But I knew I’d be ok because Kandi is the only one who could cure the disaster going on in my heart, and she did. SO beautifully. Love is grimy and haphazard but you’re willing to go through it regardless of all the ugly, because you know feeling those gutter feels and those heavenly highs are the best damn moments in your memories! And this book gives you ALL OF THAT. Uggggh my poor heart couldn’t take it! COULD. NOT. TAKE. IT.
These characters are all so dimensional and vivid, and I felt each of them so deeply through their different POV’s. I almost ALWAYS have a favorite character while reading any type of series, but with this duet I changed my mind SO MANY TIMES. That just proves how amazing the writing is. When an author can manufacture a story that actually makes you rethink your own morals and preconceived notions, that’s when you know it’s a job well done. Like WOW. Did I just question my own self like 85 times? YUP, I sure did!
I want to address the fact that this book is a love triangle. This is no secret, it was advertised as much. It’s also a duet, which typically means book 1 will end in a cliffhanger. No surprise here either. What WAS a surprise is that no matter how much I love triangles and cliffy’s, I still found myself going absolutely bonkers and wondering WHY I love them so much? Why do I do this to myself? I’m pacing, and grunting, and snotting all over the place, this isn’t fun is it? The simple answer is yes. And you can’t be a true lover of all of the above unless you have faith in the author. Kandi is one of those very special writers that delivers her heart on every page, and you can actually FEEL IT. I always know that no matter what the outcome, I will be delivered an impassioned story, with grit and wonder and all the amazing things you look for in a book that are meant to take you away from all the real things in life. By the end of this book I was an absolute mess. I was pissed, I was happy, I was just aghhhh. Of course I was leaning one way, and in the end it doesn’t really matter because it ended how it was meant to end. This has never happened to me before, where my heart was so torn but I was okay with the pain, because the story was so thought provoking and profound. This series is going right to the top of my list because I won’t forget this one for a while. It left me puffy and red and spent, but I would do it all over again because the experience was that amazing.
About The Author
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
