Random Review: The Perils of Intimacy by Rick R. Reed #Review #Giveaway

Synopsis

Mark believes he’s meeting Jimmy for the first time in the diner where he works, but he’s wrong. Mark has no recollection of their original encounter because the wholesome Jimmy of today couldn’t be more different than he was two years ago. Back then, Jimmy sported multiple piercings and facial hair. He was painfully skinny—and a meth addict. The drug transformed him into a lying, conniving thief.

Mark doesn’t associate the memory of a hookup gone wrong with this fresh-faced twenty-something… but Jimmy knows. Can Mark see Jimmy for the man he is now and not the addict he was? The answers depend on whether true love holds enough light to shine through the darkness of past mistakes.

Review

They met before, Marc doesn’t realize it, yet. But when he does, Jimmy knows he will walk away. It was at a time Jimmy was in another state of mind. Physically and emotionally.
No wonder Marc doesn’t recognize Jimmy.

Marc, almost forty, alone, lonely, and is kind of a pessimist. When he meets the much younger Jimmy, he’s smitten. Jimmy gives him his number and they have a date. And they connect right away.
Jimmy has a story to tell, a devastating one. One you wish no one had.

“Then why wouldn’t you forgive yourself”

Living with the lie isn’t settling right for Jimmy, he feels so attracted to Marc, if he only knew and remembered.
And dang when the moment arrived my heart hurt so much. Jimmy’s shattered.

Separately they go through heavy stuff, the ones you must face before you can move on.
This story was something special and different. A story with the beauty and pain of reality.
Two men standing in life with, now and then, wobbling legs.
To see Jimmy rise was really something. I loved the display of all the honest feelings, and all at the moments where they should be, it made it all quite reliable,
What I valued was it didn’t feel romanticized, maybe slightly, it did well for this story, it made it even more real.
Two beautiful flawed souls crossing paths. I loved both men.  How they worked on themselves, the reflections, knowing the strengths and the weaknesses

Addictions are horrible monsters, no one is only an addict even where the main addiction is the one for them at the moment.
I have respect for every single person trying to get clean, it’s hard, every day.

A well balanced, thoroughly developed story. It grabbed me and I enjoyed it very much.
Uplifting and heart-shattering at times, c'est la vie.
I was gratified with the course of this story, thank goodness it all worked out at the end.

  2. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email dr.azukasolutionhome@gmail.com he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
