My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Equal parts heartbreaking and beautiful, sad and joyful, crushing and so filled with love….this book, this story far exceeded my expectations. The author takes a character like Dante, who on the surface appears to be nothing short of a shallow man-whore, and she slowly peels back his layers (with Magnus’s loving help) to reveal not only a beautiful man but someone who blew me away with his strength and his ability to survive. And Magnus, dear, sweet, stoic and patient Magnus was there to not only show Dante how strong he truly is but also that he is strong enough to love and be loved. Beautiful.
