I am going to be brutally honest here, I didn't like this story, it upset and annoyed me and its the second story I have read this week featuring abuse, it's a popular theme lately, not sure why as it's a difficult subject to get right.

For starters any story featuring abuse can be tricky and there is a fine line between acceptable or not, for me it can go either way. It also depends on the suffering and if there is a substantial enough reason for drawing out the abuse and forcing the M...more

WTH was that?
A parody on the hurt/comfort theme?
Yeah, maybe - if it were better written...
Taking a deep breath I decided to ignore the existence of this book....

The rapist(s!) in the story used lube....thank God for small mercies, hmmmmm?
Christ, my honest is going to get the best of me on this book, but what good are you as a reviewer if you can't be right?

A note to the author should she see this: Kindly update in GR your content advisory on this book please? I ask this for future readers.

I found there to be more than just 'near rape' scenes in this story. I got sucked real deep into reading this one and the scenes of rape are detailed, many and frequent. Whenever he dreamed on reality it happened alright. I cringed each and ev...more
BAM!!! It just ends. What a ride! Up, down - back and forth. Hell, I didn't even get the name of the bull I was riding. This book was like bull riding. Scaring, exhilarating - hoping you stay one to finish and then sailing through the air, praying you land on your feet. Like I said, what a ride. Highly recommended.
Another story created for a single purpose of maximizing angst. Sooo not for me. Sorry, I don't need catharsis. Others might, though.

Danny and Mike was written three years ago and was my first book in this genre. The manuscript was raw back then, a lot of unfocused thoughts and unpolished plot directions. I finished it when I only had a couple of friends on Goodreads and publication was completely out of my mind.

The original manuscript lacked the whole beginning it has now (courtesy of MsMiz(Tina)), some of the names were different and it wasn't set in Croatia (hence the warning in the first pages - some things were too much...more

Beautifully written, heartbreaking and yet full of hope. I wanted to protect Danny so badly and was happy when Mike showed up for him. I'd really like a follow up to see how they are doing after everything that happened.

I would say that I am first a reader and then a writer. My fascination with books goes way back into the past when I didn't even know I could read something that wasn't given to me in school. Writing came later. First when I tried writing down the plots of the movies I found overwhelming and later in the form of a very dark blog that connected me with people I still consider very good friends.
