    Holy hell, get the tissues ready, folks This one put me through the emotional ringer Matt is our exclusive narrator here, and he is a sad dude A product of the foster system, he learned never to want anything.And even though Chapter 1 begins 18 months into his marriage to Rhys, and he s so in love, he doesn t trust that happiness will last for him.The first half of this book was gut wrenching It is a black cloud over your head and you just want to curl up in a fetal position to make the pain Holy hell, get the tissues ready, folks This one put me through the emotional ringer Matt is our exclusive narrator here, and he is a sad dude A product of the foster system, he learned never to want anything.And even though Chapter 1 begins 18 months into his marriage to Rhys, and he s so in love, he doesn t trust that happiness will last for him.The first half of this book was gut wrenching It is a black cloud over your head and you just want to curl up in a fetal position to make the pain go away How can someone be so broken How can someone literally not want anything because he s never even thought to ask for it But I couldn t put it down Every painful word resonated into some of the best character development I read this in one sitting.And the second half happened What a refreshing way to show resolution of marital problems The black clouds parted, the sun rays descended, and the angels were singing I loved, loved, loved the second half.If you re going into this one expecting it to be anything like Riven, you will be in for a surprise It s like comparing Books 1 and 2 of the Middle of Somewhere series I will settle on 4 stars because I liked the story overall, even with the pain of the first half Parrish is very talented in her writing skills.Best quote of the book I loved his transition from fuckbeast to cuddlemonster

    Full review now posted, November 27I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that Rend was not about Theo and Caleb, the couple from Riven, but it is about Caleb s oldest friend, Rhys We already know Rhys is married to Matt, and Rend is their story.The first half of the book is, well, rather boring It tells of Matt s day to day life, and I just felt like it was almost void of any emotion from Matt Rhys is full of life and is madly in love with Matt, but Matt is struggling The second half Full review now posted, November 27I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that Rend was not about Theo and Caleb, the couple from Riven, but it is about Caleb s oldest friend, Rhys We already know Rhys is married to Matt, and Rend is their story.The first half of the book is, well, rather boring It tells of Matt s day to day life, and I just felt like it was almost void of any emotion from Matt Rhys is full of life and is madly in love with Matt, but Matt is struggling The second half of the book, you learnabout Matt s heartbreaking past, and it had me wondering if the author made the first half emotionally boring to make the reader feel so much in the second half, because the emotions hit you hard Matt, started questioning if he was good enough for Rhys, even feeling unworthy of being loved His childhood is full of heartache and hurt, and you begin to understand why Matt is so afraid, but Rhys will fight for him.Yes, Theo and Caleb are in this book, quite a lot, actually I enjoyed catching up with them and seeing such a strong bond between Caleb and Rhys Once again, the author s writing will hit you with all the feels, and I have a feeling, this story will be with me for a long time I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
