Killing me. That’s what you’re doing, Mrs. Brenna Aubrey. You’re killing me with this couple.
This couple that doesn’t know what is best for the other. The couple that doesn’t know how to have a multiple sided conversation. These 2 people that are holding all these internal thoughts that are begging to be spoken, but instead say shit that messes everything up. But at the same time, I love them. And I want them to be happy. I need everything to be okay.
But let me ya’ll why it’s not okay.
Adam is extremely selfish. He HAS to be in control or else he feels like nothing will be done perfectly. He has issues with letting Mia live her own life. He’s interested in his own personal benefit without giving thought to what she would want.
And some of it is understandable because after all, Adam is a multimillionaire with a capital company who is used to playing dirty for what he wants, but you can’t run a relationship like a business. And after he finally realizes this, it’s too late.
Mia, on the other hand, refuses to let anyone help her (other than Heath)! Damn, woman. PLEASE! Just ask for help. Confide in the people closest to you. Otherwise, all the shit going on will eat at you a thousand times worse.
I loved reading from Adam’s perspective. Mrs. Aubrey does a male’s viewpoint very well, and I couldn’t see much resemblance in his and Mia’s.
At Any Turn has none of that money bullshit hovering over their heads. It’s a real relationship, not a contracted one.
And, lord have mercy, sexy as hell. (The mirror scene. That is all).
Even though I had an idea of what was coming, what the heartbreaking reveal of hers was going to be, it still shook me to my core. I had goose bumps at the final sentence and just cried for a few minutes after I turned my Kindle off. (A book hasn’t hit me that hard in a very long time. Like since The Fault In Our Stars or Thirteen Reasons Why or Hopeless.) Emotionally drained.
From where all of this is going, the next book is going to be hard to read. But I guess I have a while to mentally prepare until it is released!
