I actually liked this one a lot more with this re-read. MacGregor took a lot more time to flesh out the characters and really get into their problems. Before I didn't love it as much, cause it really is a bit of a downer, but I very much appreciated it this time. I think it's great to see a relationship go through real-life issues that affect so many, but come through stronger in the end.

A bit different from the online version. Very good.

3/29/13 - finished a second read and it's my least favorite of the series but that's because the subjects are pretty depressing. It's a good story and I'm not sorry to have been witness to the difficulties that Anna and Lily go through. It's nice to see that not everything is sunshine and rainbows for the couple.

I feel like I'm reading the story of an alcoholic trying to get out of her addiction with part romance in it. While there are a lot of depressing moments, and not everything is fluffy/ mushy, I wish there could be a kind of intimacy where they don't have to find themselves in the moment of passion most of the time. Stuffs like cuddle in bed all day, massage, gift to each other during job, visit one another, or anything regarding their emotional feelings toward one another. Though, I supposed ...more

This book is a bit darker than the first. I love these characters so much that I'm glad to continue the journey. Every other sequel I've read in a series tells the story of the two main characters blissfully happy, sometimes even secondary to plot line or new characters. This was the first sequel that continued the love story. It showed how life stresses can complicate and challenge relationships. We got to see their love story again, with an honest look at real struggles couples have. The only ...more

This is the Empire Strikes Back or Two Towers of the Shaken series where our heroines find themselves lost and alone as they battle their demons. It's a darker read and less predictable than than the opener but still has some developments to soften the edges of Anna's preoccupation with work and Lily's struggles with alcohol. It's written with a great deal of skill and the outcome and future of the couple are not a foregone conclusion.

Following on from Without Warning, this continues the story of Anna and Lily and is streets ahead of most lesfic in having its characters deal with difficult issues such as commitment, loss, and addiction, in believable ways.

This book developed the characters we met in the first of the Shaken series. I felt the addiction theme was handled in a way that didn't make the outcomes obvious, and as I've never experienced the issues Lily and Anna faced on the book, it made me sympathise with how slowly situations can change into major issues. Very good read.
