Review – Dear Agony by Georgia Cates 

Dear Agony by Georgia Cates

My heart is pounding.

My hands are shaking.

Tears are streaming down my face.

I’m a balled up mess of devastating, beautiful feelings. Dear Agony by Georgia Cates is a must read for EVERYONE.

Dear Agony is so different to anything I’ve read by Georgia before. I absolutely love Georgia’s writing. Her books are ones I can easily lose myself in and not care that I’ve read away half my day. From the moment I saw the first teasers for Dear Agony and the minute I saw the cover I just knew I had to lose myself in this read too. And OH MY GOSH. I lost myself, in a intense, visceral journey that cut deep, blew me apart and then kept me open, hanging on by a thread to the very end.
If you love angst and tension in your books then this is the read for you. I feel I’ve been pulled and pushed, no, dragged, through so many emotions and feelings that I didn’t know which way was up. I was burnt to my very core and I freaking LOVED every second of it!! The journey that Georgia put Bash & Rose on was devastating, full of rawness, grit and intensity. They broke my heart, they fixed it back up. And then they ripped it right open again, but I wanted it, found myself craving it, needed the suspense and tension. I don’t care how crazy that makes me. I’m downright crazy over this book!!

Bash and Rose were fantastic. They were passionate, seductive, sensual. They were raw, brutal and devastating. They were love, light and happiness. Strange mix I know, but it worked. Perfectly.
I won’t say anymore. I truly believe you’d benefit reading by going in blind. Just shut the world away and get lost, trust the words, trust the characters. Trust Georgia. Because she delivers one hell of a devastatingly beautiful, breathtaking journey.

5 all consuming stars.

Dear Agony,

You’ve been my shadow, following me through childhood—filling my days and nights with terror and uncertainty. You cleverly disguised yourself as some form of pain or suffering as I grew into a young woman. We were unwavering companions … until I severed our ties.

I traded homelessness on the streets of New Orleans for a luxurious bed covered by the finest linens.

I traded dumpster diving for dinner in the finest restaurants.

I traded myself to a stranger—Bastien Pascal.

I have a good life within my platonic and mutually beneficial companionship with Bash.

He’s my friend. My mentor. My roommate.

Until everything changes.

I’m not supposed to get goosebumps when his hand brushes my skin.

I’m not supposed to be eager for his soothing touch following one of my nightmares.

I’m not supposed to think about what might happen if I reached out to him in the darkness.

Falling in love with him? Preposterous . . . unavoidable.

Agony, why are you back with a vengeance to rob me of this life I’ve come to love so dearly?

I’m finally happy. Don’t ruin this for me.

Always yours,


In this epic love story, Dear Agony forges a connection between an unlikely pair—a beautiful rose entwined in barbed wire and a shipwreck sinking into the darkest depths of the ocean. This agonizing romantic novel poses some gut-wrenching questions: What does a woman do when the man she loves is planning his own demise? And how far will she go to give him something to live for?
