ADD TO GOODREADS
The much maligned and misjudged, Emery Pearson, sits facing prison therapist, Dr Susan James, in order to make a last ditch attempt to win her freedom after the chance of happiness with the only man she ever loved is cruelly cut short, in this roller-coaster tale of passion told through revealing flashbacks. Contains adult themes.
There are these stories that take your heart and soul on an emotional ride that leaves you feeling empty and sore. 'Missing Him' is one of those raw stories, it's not a simple love story, there's nothing sweet when you love with your heart and soul.
This is Emery's story and her love story with Jack. They've known each other for years and life keeps joining them together. We now have to figure out how Emery ended up where she is. The story jumps between the past and the present and piece by piece we can put the story together, and little by little we understand how we get to the starting point.
The book is full of graphic scenes that describe Emery and Jack's relationship. There is hard and raw sex, violence and intense passion. It's easy to try to judge their relationship but being honest, passion and love are hard to explain and theirs is one of those turbulent but full of love relationships, so you can put your judgy opinions in your pocket.
I found this book hard to read not because it was bad, on the contrary, I LOVED IT. It's just that this story was emotionally draining. I got so sucked up into it that I would read for an hour or two but I would end up emotionally exhausted. As I said, I loved it and the author did a great job creating these amazing characters. She has a beautiful writing style and created a world where you just want to get lost and continue reading. I'm addicted to this kind of book.
