I received an ARC of this book from TRSOR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

This book is aptly titled. At first, I didn’t understand why it was titled like that. But as I progressed in reading it, I began to understand. Love is never really enough sometimes. And there are times when love becomes toxic for two people. That’s because in a relationship, love always takes a back seat when fear, mistrust, insecurities. and uncertainty come along for the ride.

I really liked how this book was written. I couldn’t stop reading it, even when the sun was already up, and I knew I was way past my bedtime again. I just had to finish the book and find out exactly how the issues were going to be resolved. It turns out, issues don’t always have to be put in a closet and locked tight for all eternity. Instead, it’s better to lay them all out in the open, knowing that they’re there but that you both are willing to work past all of it until there’s no clutter anymore, until all you see is what used to be a mess that’s rearranged to make it tidy again.

The constant back and forth arguments between the main characters were sometimes annoying, but I understood every conflict they had. The chemistry was amazingly hot. I like that aside from the main characters’ love story, there were other side stories that happened to the secondary characters as well.

Kim Carr has done a great job of writing a story that doesn’t have a simple, linear plot. Instead, every character mentioned had something going on in their lives, making them integral and interesting. This is a great book that’s emotional and hopeful. I’m glad to have read it.
