Don’t miss the gripping sequel to the best-selling novel BLUE
This is the continuation of Blue and Brady's journey ad Blue's musical career takes off, presenting a whole new raft of challenges. I will say that there is more of a positive and hopeful vibe to this book as Blue finds his place in the world. That being said, it is important to note that the darkness has the potential to slip back in as Blue's demons will never be totally gone.
There are some adjustments to be made for Brady and Blue's relationship to continue to flourish. It is important to note that Brady's selfless, nurturing and loving character doesn't hesitate to recognise these and be the supportive partner as always, whilst ensuring that his own needs are met as well.
I loved the hopeful vibe here and seeing Blue flourish after so much heartbreak and hardship. I loved the fact as well that both Brady and Blue recognised that in order for their relationship to last that they needed to continuously work on it. They didn't just expect everything to be ok. I loved the nurturing nature of Brady and the fact that Blue never takes anything for granted. This for me was a special read that has found a place in my heart for the awesomeness of Brady and Blue.
