Rock Bottom by R.K. Lilley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Their love had the power of a runaway freight train, and the potential to be just as destructive.
The tempestuous sequel to Bad Things picks up where the first book left off. Reeling from a profound loss, Tristan and Danika struggle to pick up the pieces and build a life together, but the hard habits of a lifetime are not so easy to escape.
Rock Bottom takes us on a dual point of view journey through addiction and desire, through love and agony, and answers the question we’ve been asking since these characters were introduced in Grounded: “What happened between Tristan and Danika?”
Even love couldn’t cushion a fall like ours. My love for Tristan was so big that I felt consumed by it, and even so, it was not enough to overpower our combined demons.
I struggled. I yelled and screamed. I scratched and kicked.
I fought like hell, but even the most determined fighters have to stop before they break.
No one could say I didn’t fight for him.
“I love you,” I spoke softly into his ear.
He gripped me harder. “I can’t ever lose you, Danika. I’m not sure I’d survive it.”
“You’ve got me. And I’m not going anywhere. Not ever.”
I meant the words when I said them, but life had other plans for us.
I’d have given my life for that fight. In fact, I very nearly did.
She was the one.
If I’d ever had a doubt, I didn’t now. She was the one I’d be thinking about, longing for, until I took my last breath. If I lost her tomorrow, I’d pine for her like a lovesick fool.
This was the kind of love that only hit you once in your life.
5 Fan-Fucking- Tastic Stars!!!
Here's another emotional, angst filled read I am a masochist for!! I devoured this book in one day. This was a seamless continuation of Bad Things that took us on a crazy ride, right alongside Tristan and Danika. We were taken through all the highs and lows of their relationship and their devastating reality on why Love just wasn’t enough to prevail!
Danika just gave Tristan ALL OF HER…. Mind, Body & Soul! There was nothing she wouldn’t forgive him or do for him she always placed him first and that still just wasn’t enough.
Tristan was obsessively in Love with Danika.. And due to his self-destructive personality just took things to different levels and just wouldn’t allow himself to see what was right in front of him was all he needed. Throughout he struggled with lose and addiction tried but just couldn’t get to that finish line and in the end the Bad won out!
We didnt get that HEA but we got to see two people that Loved each other Hard trying to make a relationship work through all of lifes obstacles and tragically fail! But I loved it & hope we get that second chance at Love in Lovely Trigger
