It's time for another goodreads giveaway review! A few days ago I tucked up with "The Longest Night" by Kara Braden and was more than pleasantly surprised! You can read my 5 star review below or on goodreads, make sure to pick up a copy via the links below as well.
Ian, a recovering pain medication addict, is sent to live in a remote section of Canada with Cecily, an ex marine with a troubled past and a serious case of PTSD. Over the course of a few months, in the middle of nowhere, the two slowly with the help of each other begin the healing process and learn to let someone into their hearts.
Both characters were portrayed in a realistic way with flaws and pain that was balanced by Ian's kind heart and Cecily's strength. Ian had a Sherlock-esk way of seeing Cecily, attributed to his Lawyer skills, but it was interesting to see his observations woven into the main arc of the story. Their love story progressed at a refreshingly slow pace, one falling before the other and unwilling to believe it. Through the course of the book both make multiple sacrifices for themselves and for each other and are rewarded with a new start to their lives that they both desperately needed.
The writing was easy to understand and flowed seamlessly from once scene to another. There were little to no typos and the paper back had the most delicious tactile feel (yeah I'm a sucker for a well made book).
