Amplified emotional highs have been my downfall. I’ve lost parts of myself to the dark corners of my heart because of the damage others have inflicted.
Whiskey might be able to ease the burn of one’s soul, but this time it might not be enough to survive. Instead of letting me wither in the cracks of my desiccated soul, he pushes me to appreciate the scars, instead of avoiding the bruises.
I’ve had more than my share of sanctioned hell, and I am through living in a limbo between who I should be and who I am. I won’t allow myself to become a casualty of my own mind again.
I am no longer carrying the obscurities of my life around with me when he chooses to stand and fight beside me.
With him, I finally see what it means to be living.

I really liked this author’s style of writing and I loved Isla and Liam. The story started out really strong but I found the push and pull between Isla and Liam in the beginning frustrating. While the overall concept of the story was great and as I said the story started out strong, it unfortunately began to lag but then picked up again about a third of the way through. The flow of the story seemed like a roller coaster – it was good, then would lag, good again, then lag…and even at the end I’m still not sure what Isla’s “demons” were. I would have liked the author to perhaps go into more detail of what exactly happened to Isla to create her demons and would have appreciated less of “how wonderful and great Liam was, always there for her, etc.”, it came across like a broken record to me, I mean we get it he’s fricken great but what’s up with you Isla? We know how you feel about Liam but what makes you tick, why are you the way you are? What really happened to you? I just felt that I didn’t get enough of what made Isla her, on the other hand, I totally got Liam and the author painted a very clear picture of what made him the man he was. This story left me a bit frustrated and confused.
