They say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.
They say the best way to stay sober is to love yourself.
I’m great at making bad decisions.
Addict? Check. Poor impulse control? Check. Obsessed with the guy I’m sponsoring? Check Check Check.
There is no one worse for me to want in my bed than Jake Tully. He’s hot and grumpy and literally a terrible idea. Terrible. Worse, no one has ever made me feel the way he does — valued. But here I am - thinking about him again.
Falling for my sponsor is not my worst idea yet, but it’s damn close.
Felix Fields is everything good. He’s thoughtful and kind. I can’t help but think about every bad thing we could do between these sheets.
But we can’t be together. I’m not willing to risk my recovery for anyone – even if he might be perfect for me.
Finding a love like this is nothing short of a tragedy.
**Author's Note: This book ends in a Happily Ever After, but getting there isn't easy.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Welp J. Daniels is back and with a book that was a sucker punch straight into my feels. Holy crap...I'm not totally sure what I was expecting but it wasn't that. Here are your warning...this story touches on some heavy subject matter. It was handled with the care and honesty it deserved. And have the tissues ready because you will need them multiple times.
Felix is like the wild best friend you call when you want to have fun. But under his humor and tattoos is a soul that is so lonely and longs for connection. He finds it in the most unexpected of places, Jake. The broody former military man who is struggling to find his way out of his own pit of despair.
I absolutely loved the dynamic between Jake and Felix. How they calmed and brought out the best in each other. How they learned the others triggers and were able to bring them peace among the chaos. But their demons were always knocking and just wouldn't let them be.
I was consumed with this story and these characters (plus getting glimpses of the 'Bama Boys is always fun). The Tragedy of Felix and Jake is just that. Tragic. But also beautiful in its brokenness. Powerful in its redemption. Bold in its love. Unapologetic in its darkness. Healing in its joy.
