He’d been afraid of me, and I had used fear to keep him away until I couldn’t stand to be anywhere but close.
Dante Heron has lived a life surrounded by pointless affection and impossible demands. Driven to the brink by his parents in pursuit of fame and fortune, he has learned to circumvent anything that would force him to feel more than he can stand. Until Chris. But then, he drove away Chris just as surely as he'd chased off everyone else.
Lost and afraid of the truth of that rejection, Dante pines from afar—more used to suffering than facing his problems. However, his feelings continue to torment him and no matter how many times he wants to leave the past behind, it won't let go.
Magnetic is a short companion story to Volatile in the Treacherous Chemistry series.
I missed these boys. I missed the tense, raw writing. I missed Dante and how broken he was without Chris. I missed Chris being by him. I am beyond happy to finally get this part of their story I had wanted after reading book one, Volatile.
I had written this in my review of book one:
Although it felt a bit rushed and maybe too easy it was the Dante we see after all the hard times are coming to an end. This Dante to me did not feel authentic to the one we met through the rest of the story. There was almost a complete shift in how he acted and one that I couldn’t understand and felt...fake?
This short story cleared up any issues I had after finishing Volatile. Yes, it’s after reading it, but it was such an important part of understanding the Dante we saw at the end. How did he get there? What happened during their time apart? This answered that and more for me. It was just as beautiful, just as heart breaking, and just as perfectly broken. I still hate Dante’s parents but that’s okay, they deserve my anger for how they still treat their son.
If you’ve never read these books. Do it. You won’t regret it. You’ll wonder and think and rage, but you will come out the other end reading a story worth all those emotions.
