That’s the word I’d use to describe what this book has been to me. I wanted to devour this book whole. Feast on the goodness I knew it would possess but when I got going I found that this would be a book I’d need to savour and take my time with. This was a book that I could not rush, would not rush, because this book was so damn breathtaking. From page one this book consumed my thoughts, pulled at the deepest parts of me and wrapped itself around my heart.
What book am I talking about? Intertwined by the amazingly talented, beautiful Sasha Brümmer.
Intertwined sparked a fire deep inside me. A soul-deep, burning flame of love and desire, lust and devastating beauty. Liam and Isla were two of the most beautiful, battered souls I’ve read. So perfect for each other. Breathtaking and intense. Their relationship battered me, latched itself onto me and blissfully dragged me along with them.
People who know me know that I feed off angst and friends to lovers romances.. Intertwined is now, undoubtedly, one of my favourites. Everything about this book spoke to me. It made me FEEL. I laughed, I swooned, I got VERY hot under the collar and I cried. I cried so hard. At times Intertwined was hard to stomach, hard to process, it stole my breath and broke my heart but through it all ran an UNDENIABLE connection. A connection that melted the pages. A connection that blossomed and burnt hotter than the biggest fire.
That connection is what built an exceptional romance between two best friends, one that brought true meaning to second chances, not only at love but LIFE. Sasha bought together two souls that were seemingly doomed and breathed life into them and me as the reader.
Those two souls have embedded themselves so deep in me, I honestly cannot fathom how I’ll ever get them out. I don’t want to get them out.
Liam-fucking-Jensen has my heart, my soul, my breath, my blood. He can have it all. Every damn thing. Forever. This alpha asshole well and truly ruined me. BIG TIME. His cocky arrogance and deep protective nature made me crazy.
Matched perfectly to Liam was Isla who despite everything she endured was incredibly strong, uplifting and just a pleasure to get to know. She is a kick ass heroine and I adore her. Sasha wrote her in such an impeccable way.
Anyone who reads this book, that has a male best friend or has had one previously will just get the connection between Liam and Isla, you’ll understand how deep they do actually blend into one another and you’ll appreciate every single truthful word Sasha has penned in Intertwined.
This whole novel is deep, intense, raw and downright devastating in parts but it’s also so damn stunning. I have no idea how Sasha penned these characters and made them so strong but she did and I wouldn’t change a single thing.
In its entirety, Intertwined is PHENOMENAL. And it sucks that I don’t have enough stars to truly rate this book all it’s actually worth.
Amplified emotional highs have been my downfall. I’ve lost parts of myself to the dark corners of my heart because of the damage others have inflicted.
Whiskey might be able to ease the burn of one’s soul, but this time it might not be enough to survive. Instead of letting me wither in the cracks of my desiccated soul, he pushes me to appreciate the scars, instead of avoiding the bruises.
I’ve had more than my share of sanctioned hell, and I am through living in a limbo between who I should be and who I am. I won’t allow myself to become a casualty of my own mind again.
I am no longer carrying the obscurities of my life around with me when he chooses to stand and fight beside me.
With him, I finally see what it means to be living.
