*Sigh* I didn’t feel the love. I thought this was going to be an emotional or angsty read, it wasn’t. I’m sure this had something to do with me not connecting with the characters. The heroine went on and on about this “darkness” inside of her, which I don’t remember witnessing. The one panic attack she had was over before I knew it and never mentioned again. If it was, I don’t remember. The hero felt as if he weren’t worthy of love because of his horrible childhood. He shared one “sad” story from his teen years, but no real details from his terrible childhood. This book was entertaining enough that I kept reading, but there was zero emotional connection. The sex was hot af, but I was over it and skimmed the sex scenes towards the end of the book. This one was ok .
