Meg Amor It is dark in places. But the characters are very endearing. And I fell in love with them. The vulnerability and connection they end up having, is rather beautiful. And it does have a HEA. I can't read books that don't. :-) I do love this book. It's one of my favorites of Michele's. This one captured me from the start.
Duck For me, things did balance out. I enjoyed the interaction between the MCs. Others have said the book is dark, and it is. But it's also quite graphic. I cringed a few times. I had a few WTF moments. But I enjoyed the book and I don't regret reading it.
