In Other Words (Boothbay Harbor Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes is a highly emotionally charged and angst-ridden romance story. It tells of one woman’s tumultuous journey into life by way of being adopted and how that shaped her. I really wanted to sit her down and straighten out her pitiful attitude, she definitely needs to take a good look at herself before getting into a relationship. Argh! Whilst I love these times tested “men don’t do a relationship” but come around at the last-minute type of stories I do get frustrated with them. This is definitely a tough and rough ride but interesting tale of longing for the one who will love you unconditionally. I was almost exhausted by the time I finished the story.
Trish was adopted but never fit in. Men loved to leave her, and she longed for love and fell into love so easily. Unfortunately, it seems love was not for her, she was unlovable.
Michael liked his life just as it is. His family where the odd ones out and they had no room for love in their lives, they were destined to be alone. So, one and done was all he would allow. He meets a beautiful yet haunted young lady who makes him want to be there for her, but he knows she will want more and that is the one thing he can’t give her.
It is still worth the read.
