      This book seems great But definitely NOT for me.I completely misinterpreted what this book was about My laziness and hastiness have finally caught up on me This is what happens when you pick up a book based on the cover and the title yes, I can be superficial like that I should have carefully read the blurb and the reviews before starting it.I m sorry I just can t read it any, the subject matter and the tone of the book are way too disturbing and depressing for me I did reach the 20% mark and I [...]

      RATING 4.5 Pain Hearts 3 DA War Like Ours is a dark and unconventional story, one that weighs heavily on our minds and hearts as we re taken out of our comfort zones, yet enthralled by both Madison and James painful lives Nothing about this debut sings a familiar tune, their story compulsively readable, and we find ourselves turning the last page before it feels as though any time has passed.Both Madison and James are a study in extremes strong mentally and physically as survivors of violent pas [...]

      4.5 completely fucked up starsBefore I talk about the book, I just want to say that this is one book I would really heed the warning too It s very dark, and not just because it contains non consensual sex, and rape, but also because of the entire tone of the book It s very disturbing, and even to someone who mostly reads dark romance like I do And that is not a warning I give out very easily, so please keep that in mind before reading the book Strong trigger warning.Well I felt like that warning [...]

      Saffron A Kent has captured me with her exquisite and poetic prose First with The Unrequited which I loved tremendously So much that I immediately had to read A War Like Ours She does it again Wow A War Like Ours was beyond amazing It was my kind of edgy and dark The flawless prose again in a league of its own.Madison and James are two very flawed and broken people Battling their own demons and these demons definitely showed their ugly and scary heads multiple times The push and pull between Jam [...]

      This was a dark read cataloging the serendipitous meeting of two characters James and Madison with shared, yet different pain This book revolves around multiple aspects of pain both physical and metaphysical A WAR LIKE OURS was a twisty, unusual book that difficult to read at times due to the fragmented characters and relationships Yet I found myself unable to look away.Madison is in a relationship with Julia Madison being the dependant and Julia the fixer Madison is crippled emotionally by past [...]

      oh my goodness I literally just finished reading this book, I don t have enough words to sum up how much I loved it.I loved that Madison and James were very flawed and imperfect, yet perfect for each other This story is angsty, brutal and raw It deals with mental health issues that I love reading about and seeing being explored in books Not only that, though It takes a step into the darker side of love Madison and James are each other s obsession and savior, all wrapped up in one I teared up and [...]
