Free read Ò Hold Me Close · PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook So while Effie continues to bring new men into her life Heath becomes obsessed with proving he's the one she needsThen a new crisis arises and Effie begins to lose every scrap of self control she ever had As she struggles against her desire to return to the one man who understands her she discovers that sometimes the only safety you find is with the person who is the most dangerous for you. Effie and Heath are kidnapped and held prisoner in a basement for years abused by a sick man and eventually rescued from their prison but in many ways they will never leave that basement This is the story of your greatest love springing from your worst pain It s not romance but there is loveThe Good This is one of the hardest reviews to write so I ll apologize for the stream of consciousness review but it s all I got right now Reading the blurb I knew this was going to be a hard one but I thought I was ready Silly bunny The uality of the writing is high and it has to be to handle this subject matter This was a realistic take on a very sad woman and her complicated relationships I hesitate to really classify it as a romance for many reasons but I do think it s compelling fiction Ms Hart has managed to tell a difficult story told in a really interesting way She s not afraid to have her characters make hard choices and likeable isn t a priority It s fascinating and my mind is a scarier place for it The things I pictured happening to Effie and Heath were horrid and the glimpses shown from their residual PTSD was so heartwrenching to see Seriously this made me all kinds of paranoid about food and drink and that s just from reading it The Bad and Everything in Between Sometimes her prose throws me off third person present isn t my favorite and the occasional lack of contractions makes things feel a bit formal than I prefer in my reading Third person present is used for the flashbacks and third person past for present day so adjusting to that wasn t bad but noticeable That was the only cue for flashbacks but I adjusted to itThe core of this story is Effie and her journey and I wanted to know about Heath He drew me in and kept me reading Effie is a hard heroine because she s not easy to pigeonhole Now I know that there will be readers who will object to her reaction to her abuse and captivity That have issues with her sexual freedom and her refusal to feel shame for what gets her off That is not an issue for me as a matter of fact I think that isn t a surprise at all However it s how those sexual relationships hurt Heath that bothered me At my core I m a romance lover and this wasn t the romance even if there is love Effie struggles against her relationship with Heath for both good and bad reasons Logically I could understand her need to try and cut ties but the way he is there for her I couldn t help it I hated how she hurt him over and over again in her uest for some version of normal that she will never be I think it s why this is so hard for me to articulate because I do understand her even when I don t like what she doesFinally there s certain moments that felt a bit obvious and the ending wasn t as satisfying as I d hoped I was left with a feeling that Effie was giving into the inevitable but Heath would always love her I had to rate this 4 stars because while I ll never love it I think this is very well done and now I understand what was missing from my previous read So thanks Mandi this was worth the read For those who are prepared for difficult stories with realistic characters and don t need alot of romance with your love stories this may be for you
