Now to the story. I liked it.
There’s really no way to put it than to say these two people are seriously messed up. They both went through intensely traumatic childhoods and adulthoods that has fractured their ability to trust/love people. With this background , you can imagine the nature of their relationship initially. They finally somehow managed to make it work through very unconventional methods but which were effective nonetheless.
They had a pretty realistic ending which I appreciated and did a bit of set up for Nikolai’s book . All in all a good read. 🙂
