I need you, Ava.
I am desperate. For you. For touch. For a kiss. For the scrape of your hand down my stomach. For the slide of your lips across my hipbone. The sweep of your thigh against mine in the dulcet, drowning darkness. For the warm huff of your breath on my skin and the wet suck of your mouth around me and the building pressure of need reaching release...I am mad with need.
Wild with it.
I cannot have you. I have lost you, as I have lost myself.
And so I go in search. Of myself, and thus the man who might return to you, and take you in his arms.
I loathe each of the thousands of miles between us, but I cannot wish them away, for I hope at the end of my journey I shall find you. Or rather, find myself, and thus…you. Myself, and thus us.
I am taking the long way home, Ava.

I’m losing my mind, and I don’t know how to stop it. I shouldn’t be writing to you, but I am. I’m friendless, loveless, and lifeless. You’re out there somewhere, and still you’re all I really have. I hate my reliance and dependence on you, emotionally and otherwise, and that reliance is something I’m coming to recognize. I hate that I can’t hate you as much as I want to. I hate that I still love you so much.
I hate that there’s no clear solution to our conundrum. Even if we could forgive each other, what then?
I hate you, Christian. I really do.
But most of all, I don’t.
Complicatedly (still) yours,
This was a super emotional and heart-wrenching read. It’s also one of those books that you have to read and experience in order to fully understand them. I love Jasinda Wilder’s books. I love the realness and rawness of her characters, and the very realistic nature of her stories. This one is no exception.
Christian and Ava were a happily married couple who went through the worst nightmare of their lives. As a result, their marriage has crumbled and we see how both of them copes with this huge blow and learn to live again. Again, it’s one of those books that you will spoil if you say too much, but I absolutely loved it. I personally was hooked from beginning to end. I also loved how the narrative was done and the structure of the chapters. The ending and epilogue threw me off for a loop and left me wanting more right away. This end on a huge cliffhanger so you are warned!
