I.Loved.It.

This story spoke to my heart.


Gone for You was a tad bit more angsty than I thought, but as I said to a friend, I am an angst junkie in denial. I don’t want to read them, however, when I am in the middle of all the drama it feels so darn good.


The story sucked me in; I was completely involved and touched by both MC’s.
They seemed total opposites in so many ways, especially affectionate and in the way, they were shaped to live their lives but they were perfect for each other.


This is a deal breaker for me in a story, the author’s ability to make two completely different personalities to mesh, making a relationship between these two people feel real, pumping the exact dose of drama into it in order to add depth without overdoing it. I think it was brilliantly done!

My only niggle and the reason I won’t give it a full 5 Stars is that I found that at the end everything was sorted too easily, a bit rushed maybe? I don’t know… Matty had it too easy.

I really liked this but I didn’t love it, not in epic proportions as most of the others anyway.

Here are my thumbs up points:
The characterisation of both MCs.
The mystery which came across very strong.
Action wise it had a steady pace with no boring times.
Chemistry was there, solid.

What held back my 5*? … Romance vs. Relationship.


When the story started and we met Zane.


We were led to believe that Zane was perfection whereas Ty, on the other hand, was a mess.


Very first wrong impressions I must say. I guess we were tricked.As the story progresses and Zane’s layers start to peel off we realize that Zane is not perfect at all.

 


Hands down, Zane was the most damaged. He lost his wife, a partner at work and he also had addictions to deal with.I didn’t like that every time Zane showed a weakness Ty took a step back. It happened when he mentioned his wife, the drinks, and the drugs.

I also wanted to see them going crazy in lust with each other


But they seemed very restrained both emotionally and physically. There were times when I was left disappointed in regarding this coldness, like when they were apart for 4 months. When they met again, they went to Ty’s place, had a shower, they ate some pizza, talked and went to bed, to sleep, folks.


Now, excuse me, moi, but why they didn’t jump each other bones is beyond my understanding.Think:🤔 you don’t see your man for 4 months.What are you going to do when you meet hmm?? Well, I have no idea what you would do, but I know what I would. Winking Emoticon
Ok, he wasn’t HIS man. Still, it frustrated me.

 


Oh! Another thing that I liked A LOT was that the guys didn’t seem to grab where they stood emotionally. AND that made the story believable. I would have hated if it would have turned in instalove. They hated each other at first and in a matter of days, they started to feel protective of each other. They were very confused about these feelings. I think this was played very well by the author with their inner monologs.

 


Overall it was a really great read and I am very curious to see what book #2 will bring romance wise.Sorry, I went a bit OTT with the pics but how could I not get excited about.
Ty & Zane? …So damn hot!
A pity that I could not show them in full, a serial flagger could be around.
