.Book ⚖ To Honor (R&R, #1) ⚑ eBooks or Kindle ePUB free
Too shortI would have liked to see of what happened Woman tries to kill herself over his emotional affair with his therapist He asked for a divorce and they had just lost their baby in a car crash and she just snapped The therapist was not a good person I guess and she manipulated his emotions and made him think she was the only one on his side It was odd The writing is very amateur and this might have been the authors first book I read this before in KU I guess because my rating was already in the book I didn t remember it Very sad story about two people trying to overcome some pretty tragic circumstances and likely said, it was too short and could be fleshed out. FOUR STARS This story totally filled my angst craving Wish it was longer though I didn t realize this was a novella when I dove into it Could have been even amazing had it been a bit longer That being said, I totally enjoyed this story Wish I could find of this kind of themed storyline. Very emotional book but it was very short,i wanted to read about what happened between them,the night of their fight when Derek lashed out which made Eva to take that step.This story covered the recovery part of Derek Eva s marriage and her health.Overall i liked the book very much.Recommend it. I liked this novella The subject matter while not gory or graphic is not for everyone Marriage in trouble is a favorite trope of mine along with some of my other shelves listed This one also has a marriage counselor who takes advantage of a very vulnerable couple definitely an evil OW So, why not a higher rating The books suffers from the novella length With the weighty subject matter, the story needed time in the build of the H h relationship early days of courtship, marriage, the separations due to military life, etc 3.5 stars. This was a nice little angsty book with the marriage in trouble trope I do think that the short length kept the story from going deep enough to resolve all the problems I thought the H did a good job of realizing his mistakes and he apologized, but I wanted The fact that his purely emotional affair was with his therapist makes it easy for him to lay some of the blame at her feet and for the reader to forgive him She was a professional who took advantage of his vulnerability and exploited him But she could have just as easily been a neighbor or coworker that he confided in and then where would he be It just made it a bit too convenient to blame her yes she was evil.I wish we could ve seen them talk through their issues , especially the emotional affair The h gets a few good jabs in, but we never see them hash it out It felt glossed over.Lastly, I was annoyed with the way the author vilified therapists as control freaks who get off on manipulating and being controlling Yes, there were good examples of therapists and nurses, but we didn t need 2 jerky therapists in a 78 page book The author exceeded the quota of evil therapists to page count ratio.Overall, this was a nice, angsty read with 2 MCs that I liked I m glad they got their glossed over HEA. in To Honor, you have a military wife who has been dealt a really bad hand the loss of a child combined with a misbehaving spouse The wife s pain and frustration and anger radiates off the page She loves her husband, but he hurt her When she needed him, he wasn t there How can she get over it and forgive him But see, he s got some parts too, so we also get his POV his grief, guilt, frustration Full review on Book Babe .Book ☫ To Honor (R&R, #1) ☧ Everyone Has Their Breaking Point And Evelyn Has Finally Reached Hers In An Attempt To Escape Her Life, And The Events That Broke Her Heart And Killed Her Dreams, She Tries To Commit Suicide Now, At RR Resort, She Must Find The Strength To Love And Trust Again But Can She Trust The Person Who Betrayed Her The Most Derek Made The Wrong Decision, One That Damn Near Cost Him Everything He Ever Loved When His Wife Attempts Suicide, His Superior Officer Recommends A Military Only Health Facility Called RR Resort His Wife Is Alive, But Can He Heal The Wounds That Are Tearing Their Marriage Apart h has lost her baby in accident, she is obviously traumatised Its a tough time, so what does the H do He asks her for a divorce plus he s bitching about her behind her back to their therapist, who is now the OW h was only holding on for H s sake, she loves him God knows why cos I certainly don t , so she snaps and swallows a bottle of pills.H had an affair with OW, but we don t get to see details of his emotional intimacy with OW There are no rich shades of grey to understand the transfer of loyalty from h to OW Or the transfer back to h just bcos she tried to kill herself Yes it could have been a wake up call for H , but its difficult to believe a guy asking for divorce could go back to being deeply in love with his wife overnight.h was very strong n liked how emotionally honest she was and not too bitter too She s a very positive person Why did she have no one else in her corner does she have no family, friends Surprised though that she stayed in the marriage so long from the book we can see she was lonely, alone most of the time H is in the military for years and important even when H is there he is emotionally distant and they don t do anything together, apart from the physical stuff Wonder what kept her in the marriage She should have taken better care of herself I mean she was lucky,she could have just as easily died obviously she couldn t trust the H to do it for her.Personally I don t think h should have tried for baby she says to H it will make her less lonely when he is away but a baby never fixes a relationship A child can actually put pressure on it widening the cracks She should instead have been proactive with H and tried to fix the marriage.Anyway its an OK second chance at marriage read Leaves many questions unanswered A short, light read for such a heavy subject. A very quick read, but a book with a lot of triggers There was adequate groveling, but the OW situation was left only slightly resolved in the sense that we heard about the possible consequences for her action, but never got to experience them or got full closure.Two and a half stars if you want big time angst. To Honor is a fantastic example of what can happen when a writer puts a bit of their soul on to paper This story is told with an honesty that can be elusive in romance novellas The characters are real, raw , flawed hurting, and just downright human It s what makes the story These are people you know and love in your own life Their journey is painful to watch, and so easy to sympathize with Now I m going to warn you ahead of time so you don t come back to me later, and say I didn t warn you You may need a box of tissues, and some sensitive matters such as suicide are dealt with here Evelyn is a woman whose been pushed to the edge and has taken the final leap off When a myriad number of events pile up on top of her she makes the desperate decision to take her own life Her failed attempt lands her in a psych ward, and opens her confused husbands eyes As she heals she has to over come the situations that stole not only her will to live but a part of her sanity Derek is stunned when he s contacted because his wife has attempted to commit suicide after he tells her he wants a divorcee Clarification has come to late when he realizes separation from this incredible woman is the last thing he wants Caught up in his emotional affair with his therapist he d become convinced she was what was wrong in his life He knows some mistakes can t be taken back, but he hopes like hell they can be overcome With leave approved from his command he settled himself into the same facility as his wife and vows to be the man she fell in love with once Once they begin marriage counseling this couple is forced to examine themselves, where they went wrong, and if they can put the pieces back together This is a beautiful read, you won t want to miss, and I highly recommend it to those looking for a little substance.
