This story will grab you and pull you in on page 1, not letting go until the end. Have some tissues on hand. You’ll need them.
When Shame left Cassa, he had no idea of the devastating sequence of events that would follow, triggered by his decision. In her heartbreak, Cassa tries to move on, thinking that Shame no longer loves her. Her life becomes a nightmare, as she enters an abusive marriage and later, tries to regain her sanity. She is broken.
Tragic circumstances bring Shame back into Cassa’s life. As they both try to deal with the anger, guilt and pain that they harbor toward one another, they also have to face their own inner demons and come to terms with their shame and regret. The result was an angsty, emotional tug of war that kept me wondering right till the end if they would ever be able to fix their broken relationship.
I loved each of the characters and was absorbed with this story. The book did need a lot of editing and that was distracting at times. However, the author was very upfront about this and the story was so powerful that it didn’t ruin it.
