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.
This novel contains mature themes, strong language, violent circumstances, and sexual situations. It is intended for adult readers.
Liam and Isla, we met them for the first time in Blended by Sasha Brummer and now it’s their turn for the spotlight in Intertwined. From the get go I felt like their relationship was on a slippery slope. They both have enough baggage to fill the cargo hold of a 747 between mental health issues, drug use and loss of love over the years.
They have always had each other, ever since college and their bond is strong in that sense. Their banter back and forth is enough to make you laugh. When they both realize that they finally want more things get even hotter and more intense. There is no doubt that these two are good for each other.
“You’re a storm I’d chase while I was blinded by whiskey.” ~Liam~
“Liam Jensen is my poison, and I’ll never stop wanting for his flavor.” ~Isla~
As I read, I struggled with the amount of internal monologue. We get a very clear picture of each of their doubts and fears constantly as they run through their heads. The story and writing were well done, you get an amazingly detailed background on where they both came from and what they went through, this I thoroughly enjoyed. We really get a feel for their pain and suffering.
As they battle with their feelings and the surprises that pop up along the way you will really get to know them and how they handle what life tosses their way. Liam and Isla are unique characters that will warm up your sheets for sure ;)
