Review * X by Kass Barrow
July 29, 2018
When you hit rock bottom, it’s time to hit the road. Call it running away, if you like, but I call it self-preservation. I picked a remote location at random off a map and bought a ticket to my new life, hoping I can forget the past.
It’s a two-day bus ride to my destination, but something odd happens when we pull into the overnight stop. A young man is waiting for me at the station. I didn’t arrange for anyone to meet me, but I’m drawn to him in a way I can’t explain.
I see something of myself in him. I see pain. I see the suffering of a damaged soul behind those smiling eyes. His eyes are reaching out to me, asking me for help. I think maybe we can help each other.
I’m sworn off men, but there’s no harm in a one-night stand. A brief encounter with a beautiful stranger, with no strings attached? It might do me the world of good and then I’ll be gone in the morning, with my heart still intact.
Except this is no ordinary town and he’s no ordinary young man.
I’m about to discover that the one thing you can never run from is yourself.
This is a hard book to write a review on without giving away the many moments that are best experienced by reading.
The author explores a reality that cannot be experienced, in this world the reality is in the minds of the main characters. It is a telling tale of destiny and romance, a life reflected upon and to be with the one person you were destined to be with.
This tale didn’t leave me with all of the answers, and I am hoping that most of what I am looking for will be revealed in the sequel to this book. For now, Tom and X (Xander) are experiencing an HFN, I’m looking forward to reading Tom and learning of their fate.
