Oof emotional moments
Madly (The New York Series): A Loveswept Contemporary Romance - Ruthie Knox

I did a buddy read for this which can be found here:  Madly Buddy Read

My comments, quotes, and thoughts can more fully be found there.

 

If I had to sum this book up in one word it would be, exhausted. I liked it with its raw, oof, delve into emotions, but also all those emotions of anger, hurt, and pain, exhausted the hell out of me. These were not perfect characters and at times I wanted understanding and forgiveness for teenage actions, still bothering now adults, to play a bigger part. 

 

The romance lacked a bit for me, it moved pretty quick and I just didn't feel the story threads were there to support it. 

 

This was very much about family dynamics, pain, and human connectivity, putting your own wants and desires on people, and secret desires versus what the world/people tell you what kind of and how you should live your life. 

 

Deep oof stuff at times but I'm exhausted.

“Mom picked at me for being too fat,” May said, “and Dad tried to make it up by leaving candy on my dresser, and—”

I'm telling you, this book is chalk-full of oof moments; very brittle raw nerve moments.

"I want to say ‘fuck you’ to the whole idea, too, that getting penetrated is the point of the deal, like it’s not sex if there’s not something inside me. I’m inside me. I am.”

There are some brutal emotions/emotional moments happening in this one.

She cried happy tears at the end, and Winston speculated whether the jewels the children had kept were valuable enough to save their houses. He’d worried about it, talking diamond and gem markets, as he held her hand all the way through the credits.

Oh Winston, you guarded heart, you. 
A line will make my eyes water out of nowhere, only to then immediately lol at a convo exchange between them.

All of them full of passionate pronouncements about how they’d finally figured out how to live their lives. All he’d figured out was how to work Netflix.
