WHY I READ IT
Kim Holden is a favorite of mine.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Love is strange. It comes out of nowhere. There’s no logic to it. It’s not methodical. It’s not scientific. It’s pure emotion and passion. And emotion and passion can be dangerous because they fuel love…and hate.
I’m now a reluctant connoisseur of both—an expert through immersion. I know them intimately.
When I fell in love with Miranda, it was swift and blind. She was the person I’d elevated to mythical status in my head, in my dreams.
Here’s the thing about dreams, they’re smoke.
They’re spun as thoughts until they become something we think we want. Something we think we need.
That was Miranda. She was smoke.
I thought I wanted her. I thought I needed her.
Over time reality crept in and slowly dissected and disemboweled my dreams like a predator, leaving behind a rotting carcass.
Reality can be a fierce bitch.
So can Miranda.
And I can be a fool…
who believes in dreams.
Another 5 star from Kim Holden!
I loved this book – I could not put it down!!!
When someone loves as completely as Seamus does, it should be cherished and reciprocated – not manipulated, taken for granted and eventually destroyed. He deserves to love and be loved. He finally comes to realize that there is SO MUCH MORE love out there. This is his journey to find it.
What stuck out to me was that Kim Holden gives us the perspective of the 3 main characters. They all have their own issues but we don’t have to second guess what they are thinking or what kind of person they truly are. And I have to say that we all know people like this. That is one of the reasons that I really loved this book. It was as real to life as it gets (very Kim Holden-ish). It was definitely a heart breaking story and a perfect example of how blind love can be but also how beautiful it is once found with the right person.
