Title: Thin Love
By: Eden Butler
My Copy: Ebook for Honest Review
Love isn't supposed to be an addiction. It isn't supposed to leave you bleeding.
Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction.
She sacrificed everything for him.
It wasn't enough.
But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of what might have been.
Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin, and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled.
When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira's and those lies told to keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.
Thin Love is a gritty and raw story about young love and second chances. This will not be a easy and flowing love story of awe worthy romance, but rather a dark and gritty journey of destined loves. Kona and Keira will be forced to overcome obstacles and trials at every turn, but this reflect on the genuine and honest personalities of their characters. In many ways the two are just as much saviors to one another; as they are the enemy. It is one heart stopping moment after another. After a horribly tragic night Kona and Kiera will take different paths, but the future has then destined to cross paths again. Sixteen years later they will tested yet again, and they will be forced to overcome obstacles yet again. Thin Love was a very slow starter, but after a short time the story really begins moving rather quickly. Until it slides to a screeching halt. This is the point where the story seems to jump a little off track for me. Everything no matter how terrible was acceptable when Kona and Keira are children, but when they are reintroduced as adults I expected a much more responsible relationship. Kona’s continued oblivion to his Mother’s vindictive and betraying personality was a major let down. It almost seemed the exact same relationship told before and after just a different ages. While still a good story I was hoping their characters would have really changed as adults.
