This is my new favorite book of the year. I had no defense against it. It took me, kept me up, and wouldn't let me turn away from it until I was finished! I was exhausted and knocked off my feet by the intensity of this book and the train wreck of a relationship it presented. A must read!
Matt Sky has the perfect life by anyone's standards. Money, a long-term girlfriend who caters to him, a successful career… and yet, he is perfectly miserable--depressed, angry, and detached. He lives his secluded, controlled life limiting his exposure to the real world. Hannah Catalano is on a fast track to nowhere. She has a dead-end job and a deadbeat boyfriend. Her passion for writing brings her in touch with Matt, a writer looking for an anonymous writing partner. His only stipulation is that they do not exchange any personal information--none, ever! But when he accidentally sees a photo of Hannah he becomes obsessed and is unable to get her out of his mind.
They are brought together fast and furious, until circumstances all but destroy them. My heart broke, and I was devastated along with the characters. Completely immersed in their story, I loved this book! Two things didn't set well for me: a dimension of their relationship (I can't say more than that without giving it away); and the epilogue, which threw me! Still, I loved the book!
