How do you get over the loss and death of the love of your life? How can you move on from that utter devastation?
"...people hit the self-destruct button when they've lost something in their life so incredible; they can't fathom a way to pick up the pieces and move on. So, we act reckless in hopes of feeling. Because those few moments of insanity make us feel alive again, remind us that air still fills our lungs, that we're capable of feeling anything but pain. That we're still here. It's what happens to people who can't end their lives, who are left in a limbo status - not quite alive, but not quite dead either."
Delaney is trying to live her life the best way that she knows how after the loss of her best friend and husband Bradley. Her escape is drinking herself into oblivion until her alter ego "Double D" makes an appearance. Double D allows her to live without feeling. Delaney never remembers her night time escapades until Jackson comes along. He completely shakes up her world and makes her open herself up for the first time. Can Delaney accept Jackson's love for her and her own feelings toward him?
"You keep cutting me open Jackson, and all that's pouring out is love. So much that I don't even know what to do. It feels like I can't even breathe it's so overwhelming. You're making me feel too much, and I've turned it off for so long. It's hitting me all at once and it's painful."
Just when I thought that Delaney and Jackson would find their HEA.....WHAMMO!!!! Holy surprise out of left field! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I HIGHLY recommend reading it!! - Kelly
