Madeline Sheehan, WOW, that woman can write! She sucks you in and doesn’t let go. Her writing is captivating. Strong. Twisted. Gritty. Funny (hard to believe isn’t it). She’s crazy talented.
One book, two love stories: One, about two people where redemption, and fighting your way back through hell, as well as self-discovery and empathy were the main characters. – This was Dirty and Ellie’s story.
“Are you going to let me love you?”
The other, the journey it takes to have your second chance at love. The struggles, the heartache, and again, self-discovery. – This was Tegen and Cage’s story.
“I love you, Teacup,” he said, smiling. “Always have,” he said. “Just didn’t realize it until now.”
The two stories were woven together brilliantly, tempering the dark with the light. Tegen and Cage’s stories helped soften and round the hard edges of the gritty, often violent story that was Dirty and Ellie. One without the other would have been too much.
