The story starts with David recoiling from, in order, coming out as gay when he was already married and his wife was pregnant, losing his wife and son to a car accident that almost killed him and left his deeply scarred, abandoning his boyfriend cause he is broken and unable to love again, being raped and badly beaten on Campus ground only for the fact they found out he is gay… yes, quite a lot (most of it happened in the previous book, so this is not a spoiling of the current story). If to someone this appear as like too much for one man only, I have to give kudos to the author to not making a pity case out of David: he is broken and traumatized, and the story doesn’t underestimate the consequences of that, but nevertheless, David is still a man who is able to try and have a life, he is not reacting like a superman who isn’t touched, and he is not a victim who is only able to hide. I think the author was able to present David in the right way, so much that I wonder if she isn’t in familiar with these types of trauma in real life, maybe for her daily job?
Even if this isn’t the end of the story, I had the feeling a cycle was complete, it still remains the desire to see what is happening next, but the reader doesn’t feel as this particular story lacked in closure.
