I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.
Finally, I did listen to some of the “Johnny Cash” music for the first time, after reading the first book in the series.
The conclusion to Cash and Journey’s story is an intense read. This book started off with the final scene in Book 1, but from Cash’s POV. He lays it all out there – he is broken, and struggling to let go of his demons. Every time he thinks he can run away he is been pulled back. He thinks he has his life of debauchery in control and it takes him long to realize that it’s not.
Journey, is too mature for an 18year old. She wanted to believe the best in everyone. She thinks she can fight for Cash and get him back. Cash and Journey’s path are not smooth. There is a sweet, lovely moments, moments of strength and happiness but many moments of weakness, disaster and heartache. Cash has long road for salvation. Will Journey be able to stand with him and support him through out? Is Cash ready to accept his road for salvation? Along with that he has a lot to make up with his family. His behavior from past has deeply affected his extended family. Now it’s time to mend them. His confrontation and talk with his old man were emotional.
Story moved in study pace, but I did feel like too much drama in the end at certain point, but its ok for this continual journey. Totally loved the banter moments with Jude, Beck and Stinx. I hope to see more about them at some point. Jackson and Harley were best.
Over all, It’s gritty, raw and also an intense read filled with hope. It shows about self-reflection, passion and healing to be a best version of yourself for self and for others. Go ahead and enjoy this intense angst read.
