** Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **
I have absolutely so much love and respect for this novel I have no idea where to start with my review.
Addiction. I’m sure most of us can relate to it, weather it be ourselves or someone we know who suffers from it. It can come in so many forms, be it food, alcohol or drugs.
Addiction eats and swallows you whole. It takes away the person you are, it alters you, changes you.
Addiction isn’t a choice. It controls you.
It takes over your body, mind and soul.
It leaves you numb, freeing you from any emotion.
But when you come down, the emotions are back.
And in that moment it’s the next hit that matters.
It’s a dark and dangerous world.
It’s a world that so many are affected by, but doesn’t often have a voice.
But Jaye Cox has given it that. She has given addiction a voice, and has taken us into the world of an addict.
She has taken us to Eddie and Callies world.
Where addiction takes over.
Where emotions are pushed aside.
Where feelings are masked by the next hit.
It’s raw, dark and highly confronting.
It’s heart breaking.
This is Eddie and Callies story.
Guys I don’t know what to say other than I cannot recommend this novel high enough. Such a powerful and thought provoking read that I couldn’t put it down.
Emotionally charged I spent my time either laughing my butt off, holding my breath or simply crying through the anguish.
It seriously hurt.
And I couldn’t get enough.
I honestly don’t know what to say.
Jaye Cox….Thank you so very much for giving us such a brilliant novel and for giving the subject matter so much respect. It was executed perfectly.
