Blurb : Re•sent•ment

 

The act of hating – no, fucking loathing Dean Collins. (Yes, I’m well aware that’s not the actual definition, but it might as well be . . .)It’s been ten years since we’ve seen each other and the feelings are still as strong.I’m not going to bore you with all the details of how our love was once intoxicating, consuming, and perfect.Because it was . . . until it wasn’t.I’ve been fine without him. I haven’t missed his cruelty, his coldness and his spite. And after the ugliest breakup in the history of breakups, I forced myself to move on. Year by year, the feelings I had for him slowly drifted away, but one encounter with him recently changed everything. One encounter made me realize how the heart doesn’t forget shit, and how my mind is going to have to work overtime to make sure I never forget my definition of resentment.

 

Review : This was a pretty great read – that might have made my best of the year 2017 list for now You are sensing the IF right ?

 

Yeah and here it comes

 

IF it had not been for the solving of the facts at the end – because that was the one and only time where I found the plotline to be really annoying. Not going into details because of spoilers but some things were resolved badly for my opinion.

 

BUT they were resolved so that counts for something.

 

I really liked the banter and developing of the relationship between the leads. You might guess from the blurb – yes this is a second chance novel

 

And honestly – at times I felt both leads would have needed some #head-against-the-wall-hitting.

 

Yeah but in the grand total – great story, well developed – please give me more of those
