Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Thursdays (The Wait Series #1) by Harper Bentley
I fell in love when I was 16.
I married him.
I thought life was good.
Now he’s dying.
I married an addict.
I didn’t know it at the time.
She hid it well.
Now she could die.
When Bernadette—Birdie—Chapman and Beck Griffin meet in grief counseling they have an instant connection. For Birdie, it’s a comfort to share her feelings with someone who knows what she’s going through. For Beck, it’s an outlet, someone who understands his anger.
But neither is prepared when they fall in love.
And the guilt is almost too much to bear.
Thursdays—a love story of two broken hearts that find each other…and try to become a whole…
Birdie and Mason -- Beck and Sonya
Two couples with inner turmoil. One couple with a diagnosis of a horrific disease while the other couple fights an addiction. Drawn together in grief, Birdie and Beck meet on Thursdays. The counseling session are a way to express their pain.
Understanding, ungrateful, selfish, joy, heartbreak, loss, anger and love are all words you will get to know and experience over and over throughout the pages of this book. The need to experience pain together was evident within the characters regardless of where and why the pain started.
Harper takes you on a journey into rocky grounds and scattered emotions. You will need tissues for this one. I can't promise you a happy ending but I can promise you a cliffhanger. If you have triggers from drug abuse then please don't click. What a deep raw read.
The characters are well written and I loved Beck. My anguish over his situation was terrible. I felt for Birdie but not like I did for Beck. The man was relentless and never seemed to give up. Click it up and enjoy. Release two is coming.
Thank you for the ARC. Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
