My Asking for More Review . . .
This is one of those novellas that isn't necessary but a great extra peak for those of us of have followed the dark cathartic journey of Vivienne & Jonah. This novella is better if you have read this series but its also written in a way that could be read first as a sneak peak of Vivienne and Jonah making you want to read more from these two.
Vivienne and Jonah have had a hard journey to get to where they are today. It's still not easy for these two as they constantly have to fight their demons, but together they are making it work and finding a balance between their relationship and their darker needs.
I liked getting another little snippet of these two, and getting to see the other side of their relationship. Where they struggle every day but are finding their own happiness within themselves and together. Sure, of course they still have their needs which are hard wired in each of their psyche, but these needs are balanced out but the each other's needs.
Maybe one of the reasons Jonah and I work so well together is that we both understand that you never outrun the past.
In this story, Jonah and Vivienne run to the side of Jonah's sister Rebecca when she's in need. In this process Vivienne gets to understand more of Jonah and why his inner battle is so different then hers. The more they let each other in the more vulnerable they get, cementing their relationship further.
This was such a quick read and I loved seeing the more vulnerable side of these two. I liked seeing the balance they've found and where their relationship has taken them together and by themselves.
