The one star rating probably isn't fair, but this book left me more unsettled than hopeful and that's pretty much the opposite of what a romance is supposed to do. I'm not opposed to stories about profoundly damaged people coming together, but I didn't think this did a good job of actually addressing their damage (and in particular, the forgiveness of abusers is a thing that bothers me tremendously), much less addressing how their damage would complicate being in a relationship. The tacked on epilogue where suddenly they're magically happy wasn't helpful either, because I had not reason to believe in the happiness since just pages before the heroine was ready to bolt.

Overall, just very disappointing.
