This was amazing. So close to perfection. Probably my favorite book of the year. Just wow. WOW.
I could not put it down.
I am running out of ways to express my love for Amy Lane. She just slays me. She is so adept at writing these beautifully painful scenes. They're just...no words. Amy Lane writes amazing characters, period. I have no choice but to empathize with them. I can always relate to them. They are deep. They grow. They break my heart.
I felt so much pain for Anderson and C.J., and ok happiness too. I giggled, I cried buckets, I smiled a lot. My sad "omg when will all the pain stop" tears turned into happy sentimental tears by the end. I'm actually pretty sure that I'm dehydrated right now, because I could. Not. Stop. Crying.
Anderson has so many facets to his personality. He is one of the most fascinating characters I've encountered. Ever. He needs lots of cuddles to atone for the pure mess that was his life. I loved him, and he ripped my heart out of my chest repeatedly. C.J. was lovely too. I liked his POV the most. He also contributed to the heart ripping. The love between Anderson and C.J. is so raw. It's sweet, it hurts, and it's beautiful. I just felt so much for both characters. Amy Lane just makes me FEEL. So many different emotions. I was drowning in them.
Also, amazing sexual tension. I love me some sexual tension, and this book had it in spades. Oh, hell yes. Anderson and C.J. were on fire. Seriously, this book is HOT.
The world building in this is so beyond great. I actually refuse to summarize the plot based on the fact that I would never be able to do it justice. I was hooked from the first page, and I wish Amy Lane would write more Science Fiction.
The only remotely negative thought I'm left with is I that the ending went a teensy longer than necessary. Also, I beyond hate the cover.
At the end of the day, this was brilliant.
