Her family was all he cared about. I can explain the things I like and love about them, the details Lines like “her asshole was shuddering like a puppy, like a small frightened heart. These are my utmost favorite types of books which are able to hit a nerve time and time again with each read.

They hook up again. It saddens me whenever I discover a book too many years too late. Spencer is a master at constructing a genuine love scene with a rawness and tenderness that makes the heart ache with both madness and astonishment.

Why is it that everyone connected to this sees it as something that dramatically changes their lives, but for David his love for Jade sends him to an insane asylum, and not just once.
