This Other Country
Yep...intriguing for sure. I first fell in love with Darien Cox's "Victim of Love" and immediately went in search for other edgy stories to consume. And edgy I got. Well...maybe not so much edgy but definitely eye raising.
This book involves one of our MC's being in an Open Relationship.
A first for me. And while I was kind of taken back, our MC was just so sweet and adorable that I just had to see where this would go. Now granted his "boyfriend" is a crazy asshole...so that helped me be OK with this. I guess OK is the right word? I just wanted our MCs together and ole asshole to GO AWAY!!
The first 70% of this book I really enjoyed...but how this ended up was a little too rosey cheeked for me. I needed a little more angst, a little more drama, a fight...something. Things just fell in place just too easy for me.
So what's next...well the asshole has his own book. Will I read it...but of course. :)
The was a good read and I got to push some personal limits for myself related to an open relationship (which I am more convinced than ever can never truly work) and at what point lines of cheating are crossed. This may not be for everyone but I was intrigued from the start.
BR with Elsbeth (Momo started but this one wasn't for her)
Thank you Els for the gift and the BR. :) And bonus love for the Cover!
