Love isn't supposed to be an addiction. It isn't supposed to leave you bleeding.
Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction.
She sacrificed everything for him.
It wasn't enough.
But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of what might have been.
Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin, and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled.
When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira's and those lies told to keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.
(I received this novel for a review.)
Thin Love is a story of unwavering love. A love powerful it was primal. A love so strong it seems Keira and Kona may break under it's weight and almost do.
Keira and Kona's characters were very similar. They were both stubborn and strong, yet had a vulnerability, a weakness just below the surface. Keira grew up with an mother that was mentally and sometimes physically abusive. Finally away at college she can grew a thick skin. Determined to try to live life her way the last thing she was looking for was love. Kona is on the fast track to the NFL. He has the world, and all the woman he could want, at his feet. So what is it about this girl, Keira?
I enjoyed seeing the plot unfold. I enjoyed the angst and the passion among the characters. I loved the push and pull between Keira and Kona. I liked Keira's ferocity. She didn't care who Kona was or who he thought he was she wasn't going to put up with his shit. I enjoyed watching Kona fall to his knees.
Thin Love is a wonderful book and a must read. Get a copy today!
