Two people. Two E-mail accounts. One story.
Let me show you the new meaning of a modern relationship in the modern world which has been defined by a hedonistic culture of mind-games, easy friendships, jaded lovers, regretted hook-ups and swiping to the right on dating apps. Don't wait for the moment someone sends the first hand-written love letter, so it can become cool again, but remember:
Things that should be asked.
In every type of relationship:
How is your heart?
Is your breath happy here?
Do you feel free?
What do you do when you sacrifice everything for nothing?
What do you do then?
Do you stay loyal to someone who deserves the opposite? Do you keep old promises to someone who should have never received that honor in the first place?
From Kirkus Reviews: This book offers a fever dream of thoughts, emotions, and events surrounding a disintegrating marriage, and Hughes delivers all the elements with brevity and palpable intensity that will leave readers wanting more.
From the Preface: The darkness within us all too often overcomes the dim light between us.
I volunteered for the PT Service but I had no idea that it would lead to me working later for Admiral "Bull" Halsey and General MacArthur through out the South Pacific. I would start out as a lowly Ensign on a PT Boat and end up years later as an Admiral in charge of all of the PT Boats in the Philippines area.We go from running around chasing the enemy ships and eating C-rats and peanut butter sandwiches to having my own command ship and eating "Baked Alaskan" with the Admiral. Follow us as we push the Japs back to Japan.
"I, Peter Hale, soon to be Alpha, reject Ruby Johnson as my mate and future Luna. You are weak and not worthy of being my mate and this packs Luna. You are nothing."
"I am sorry. I can't do this; I have a girlfriend that I love. I, Christian Black, Alpha of Deathwing Shadow Pack, reject you."
Ruby Johnson always hoped for love and adoration, but her life was filled with disappointment. As a shunned she-wolf, she was often neglected or punished, whatever that was physically or mentally. Her illusion of a happily ever after with her mate will shatter twice.
She will be forever imprinted, engraved, as the who was abused and rejected by two mates.
With hopes now lost, what will she do?
