Angsty but ultimately positive romance about learning to love yourself

Imitation of Life (Rock Bottom # 2)Imitation of Life by Felice Stevens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lordy that was a hard read at times because of the nature of the backgrounds of both characters.

However, that’s not to say it’s all angsty or depressing reading, not by a long stretch.

There’s plenty of emotion and humour to help balance out a story which is at its heart, about learning to accept yourself, including the painful parts, to be able to move on.

Both Benny and Gino had experiences which had the potential to leave them permanently broken both emotionally and physically.

But each had a solid core of strength which they didn’t really acknowledge to themselves even though it was clear to others.

Finding the courage to deal with their pasts and accept that the other saw something special in them was only the start. There’s no magic dick here.

Nice to see Ash making a guest appearance here too, he’s one of my favourite characters of Felice’s.

I’m looking forward to seeing where this series goes next.
