This is a tragic story. I don't mind tragic stories, but this one NEVER stops. It contains one tragedy after another and I found myself at first exhausted, then confused, and finally amused. It's like the author decided to throw EVERY possible tragedy at these characters to see how much she could test them (and her readers)!
This one has it all.....rape, misunderstandings, addiction, death, lies, betrayals. Yep, there all here in spades! The HEA finally arrives, but by the end of this book I was so excited to end the torture that it was all I could do to not stand up and cheer from relief when it was over!
The main characters are likeable (which probably is why all their suffering is hard to take). The villainous father is truly vile and evil and there are a host of characters that played secondary roles that were unnecessary and took away from the story. Overall, not really recommended unless you're in the mood to read about one couple's MANY obstacles.
