This is my second book by Suki Fleet and I find her style unique and very appealing. This is a very emotional NA story with unforgettable characters which will give you all the feels. It's painful and raw and realistic and deeply sad but also happy and optimistic and magical. I would go as far as to say it reminds me of magical realism - the author brings inexplicable magic even in the most mundane things in life. 

The story is told from Danny's POV, a neuroatypical young man with the biggest heart. He is a true superhero chasing away the bad guys and doing his best to protect those he loves. And he falls in love and overcomes loss and ultimately discovers he is much stronger than he believed himself to be. I loved everything about him. His presence was strong and powerful even when head trouble looking people in the eye or speaking to them. 

Micky, a troubled young man, was just as wonderful. He was not perfect, far weaker and more lost than Danny but at the same time he gave him the greatest gift - acceptance and unconditional love. he saw past his appearance, read his mind and soul and was exactly what Danny needed - a patient and understanding friend/lover/partner. They were a perfect match, giving each strength and confidence and hope for the future.  Micky cherished the care and protection Danny provided and at the same time he was not pushing him towards impossible things but let him find his own strength and worth.

The supporting characters were also deftly drawn and gave richness and depth to the story. I felt deeply for them and rooted for their HEA as much as I did for Danny and Micky.

Reading this story I cried and laughed and hugged my loved ones tightly and got my heart broken and then mended, ending with the goofiest, most happy smile. If you like masterfully written stories with complex characters and intriguing plot, you need to read this book. Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions that makes you think and feel and stays with you for a long time after the final page.
