With “Before the Storm” by Leslie Tentler you get one of these stories which are not really surprising, but at the end you just need to read them! Mostly because the background story is so emotional that you just need to finish reading. This was also the case with this book! You have these two characters with a terrible past who meet each other and now have to sort out some “issues”. Both protagonist are very likely, but at the same time not boring. They both have these special characters traits that make them and at the end also the whole book interesting. A book which is not only filled with need, sex,…Not with all these things you find quite often these days.
A bit more tension would still be good. All in all a very nice story….
