Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Oof emotional moments

Madly (The New York Series): A Loveswept Contemporary Romance - Ruthie Knox

I did a buddy read for this which can be found here:  Madly Buddy Read

My comments, quotes, and thoughts can more fully be found there.


If I had to sum this book up in one word it would be, exhausted. I liked it with its raw, oof, delve into emotions, but also all those emotions of anger, hurt, and pain, exhausted the hell out of me. These were not perfect characters and at times I wanted understanding and forgiveness for teenage actions, still bothering now adults, to play a bigger part. 


The romance lacked a bit for me, it moved pretty quick and I just didn't feel the story threads were there to support it. 


This was very much about family dynamics, pain, and human connectivity, putting your own wants and desires on people, and secret desires versus what the world/people tell you what kind of and how you should live your life. 


Deep oof stuff at times but I'm exhausted.
