This one was a tough one for me. Cracks in the Pavement is a beautifully written story, but hard for me to read because of the sadness Bella feels. VampiresHaveLaws portrays her feelings so perfectly; the reader can’t help but feel the depression Bella is in.
Bella and Edward have been married for several years; their lack of communication has broken them down. Told entirely from Bella’s POV, it made my heart ache. They are so very unhappy. And Bella is so frustrating; she has so much to say to Edward but feels he already knows. She can think of nothing but her love for him, but thinks that he can just see it in her face. He needs to hear it, because he isn’t sure she feels anything anymore. I’m glad she confronts Kate; I would have done so much earlier. I don’t care what her reasoning is, she’s got to know she is acting inappropriately. Bitch.
I’m giving 4 stars because it is a wonderful story, just one I personally wasn’t ready for. That doesn't diminish how great it is.
