Link and Rocky’s story continues.
Three. This is my number. The sum of reasons why I continue to go on.
One: She needs me.
Two: I have to protect her.
And three: With her, I feel human.
But the weight of a man’s secrets is a thousand pounds on his shoulders. Two thousand more on his chest. Trapping him.
My secrets are slaughtering me.
Fear and regret—of what I’ve done, of whom I’ve become, and of what I’ve let go—are dragging me into a hole, and I can’t claw my way out.
The deeper I sink, the farther I push her away.
The farther she goes, the more my mind spirals. Down into a black abyss. It’s dark here. So damn dark.
She needs to know what I’ve done. I have to tell her. But how can I battle the darkness if I lose my light?
This is what my life is now. I’m a shadow of a man in a scarred body, longing to live again.
Roxie and Jen’s Review
You have to read Dirty first in order to enjoy Grit. We’re not gonna lie—as much as we loved Dirty, we also felt like the story was finished. We went into Grit with some doubts and OMG WERE WE WRONG!!! This is a book we didn’t think we wanted yet we loved 100% with all our hearts.
We fell in love with Rocky and Link in Dirty. Grit sealed the deal completely.
“There are a million ways to say I love you. And Link has been telling me in his own way.
Like: “I don’t want to lose you” or, “I don’t want to make the same mistakes with you” or, “I think about how I don’t want anything more to ever happen to you” or, “With every breath of my being, I do not want to fail you.” And my favorite as of twenty seconds ago “You’re my home.”
Swoon. God we loved Link. LOVE HIM!!!
The struggles of normality in a wake of personal tragedies are heartbreaking for these two. Is there really a normal after what they’ve been through? Is there a true happily ever after for people with so much damage?
Cheryl McIntyre did truly amazing job showing us all the hardship and difficulties of two people fighting for their bliss among despair. Accepting that they deserve to move on and start anew while fighting guilt and nightmares daily.
Second chances are hard to come by when you feel wrong and undeserving.
Rocky and Link’s story came to a full circle in Grit. And we loved every minute of it!!!
Dirty and Grit—MUST READ!!!
