story deals with themes of death, grief, drug use, and codependency Anyone triggered by those things might want to skip this one It hit a few nerves with me, even though the specific experiences aren t my own.This is really well written, and I love that Ms Roberts didn t shy away from the raw emotions At the same time, it didn t have the feel of trying too hard to get the reader to feel a certain way.The first part of the story was hard to get through not because it was boring or poorly written but because it hit so hard Even for people who have not experienced the exact situation a spouse or partner with an addiction , it is likely to resonate with anyone who has been in the position of emotional caregiver When Beck began to emerge from his situation, I wanted to cheer for him.I loved that Timothy was genuinely bisexual, and Beck had no problem with that at all I had to laugh at Beck s commentary, especially how their other friends just didn t get it and how Timothy was simply his own person, refusing to be put in a box This is the most absolutely true thing about most of the bisexual people I know, and I adored it It was subtle enough that most people probably wouldn t notice or care or get it, actually , but I sure did The relationship between Beck and Timothy unfolded slowly, which made it that muchsatisfying when they finally found their way to each other It was full of hope and promise The sex was hot, yes, but it was also filled with all the things they both brought to the table.This was an incredibly satisfying story, start to finish, and I look forward to readingof Ms Roberts work.5 stars.I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.Amy A Hearts On Fire Review 3.75 HEARTS Tangled Mind starts with the harsh reality of heroin

Hearts On Fire Review 3.75 HEARTS Tangled Mind starts with the harsh reality of heroin overdose It makes a statement This isof a quiet read I was nervous this would make me cry or twist my heart, but I was rock steady The words, though This is my first Posy Roberts, won t be my last I enjoyed her technique a lot It reminded me of some my favorite quieter impact romance writers Nothing too dramatic to try and make a story but the author uses real life situations and reactions to get the story doneyou know those types Tangled Mind starts with a death and it ends on a quiet high note of sweet romance Beck has been a caretaker most of his adult life to an addict, dysthymic boyfriend After his boyfriend dies, he doesn t know how to cope not being in a relationship A grieving codependent, the artist high school art teacher rediscovers himself through counseling and support groups And with the help of friends, especially his long time friend furniture maker Timothy But Timothy has been harboring a long time love for his friend When the two move in together, they become closer Beck sees he had something special right under his nose the entire time once he heals.I enjoyed the pacing I actually liked the length of the story I don t think muchcould ve have been added to make much of a difference to the HEA Maybe if the reader got to see some of Brady dead boyfriend and Beck together, it might ve made the story edgier Give a different angle The story is told strictly from Beck s POV in first person POV a favorite POV of mine Yet somehow it left me medium well rather than well done.I can t pinpoint what exactly didn t make a stronger impact to me The subjects of drug use and its victims users and their loved ones mental health grief are serious I love books that showcase them and show main characters who aren t your regular cookie cutter types It might just be a me thing I don t think so but I ll give an out but I couldn t connect to present day Beck When he grieved, I fully understood him Hell, I ve had days like that, trying to reconnect to real life after a death.Something about him was off He said the right things He didn t jump into the sack with the first willing body He didn t cause drama He was closer to sainthood than I d like but I ll ignore it He sought counseling which I support and started his relationship in a healthy manner.ButBeck, sometimes I felt like I barely knew him I don t know how I ended up loving Timothythan Beck, but I did He s such a strong yet quiet presence He was in the background when they were friends but I recognized him I understood him That silly hissy fit he had around 80% I get where he was coming from but for a guy who argued about the mixer, wouldn t stand up or communicate with his friend after such an important event It was to move the story along, I get it, but ehit wasn t necessary The characters weren t one dimensional in the least The sex scenes were great I like accurate portrayals of characters with a big D Not everyone can take it like a porn star first time around, thank you Loved main characters friendship It was rock solid As is the story If you re in the mood for friends to lovers finding love after a partner s death, this is a story to check out The first page was like a sucker punch It came out of nowhere and hurt like a son of a bitch I fought tears and forged ahead It still hurt, yet it got better and better Not messing around, Posy throws you directly onto the sharp blade of losing a cherished one to a brutal addiction Heroin Evil, unforgiving, and a sure

you drag everyone in your heart down with you.Beck loses his partner, Brady, to this deadly drug Ten years he nurtured, loved and tried to pull his lover back from the fatal brink He lost the battle His pain palpated from the pages My tummy was tight and my eyes were wet as I read It was so.real Beck is drowning in sorrow, grief, and remorse His best friend, Tim, pulls him from the wretched despair he is fighting He s desperate to save him, but can Beck recognize the silver lining waiting for him He can t move forward until he releases the past How do you say hello when you can t say goodbye Tim never pushed, forced or took He was simplywaiting I thought Tim was incredible It almost seems wrong to say that Beck is lucky, especially after everything he endured Yet that is the first word that comes to mind if only we were all so lucky to have a Tim in our lives Grief affects us all differently but there is no denying it s all consuming We follow Beck s transition throughout the stages of grief with startling clarity His suffocating guilt, isolation, anger, depression and finally acceptance does not allow for an easy path Blessedly, hope, love and a bright future await Beck.For such a short story, it packs a powerful punch It stuck with me, gained strength as it marinated I think I even see a reread coming in the near future.Beck is twisted and trapped, however Tim is determined to unravel the knots It was painstakingly beautiful.If you are looking for a rise above challenge this may be exactly what you re searching for 4 twisted tangled tough stars 3.5 stars,

the help from Timothy, one of his best friends, he slowly starts to crawl out of the pit and tries to find himself again.Posy s writing style flows easily, yet delves deeply into the emotional side of Beck s state of mind, his suffering, the unanswered questions, and his need to be needed As Beck learns about himself, about his co dependent leanings, he finds solace and a shoulder to cry on in his friend Timothy The author has an uncanny knack for putting meaning between her lines, letting the reader but not the character see what s really going on I knew that Timothy was in love with Beck long before he even said the words.But Beck learns There s much character growth in this short novel, as Beck emerges on the other side of his grief, confronted with his own demons, and finds the strength to ask for what he needs There is one scene that ticked me off, when Timothy makes a stupid assumption, though I can understand how he would have come to that conclusion He s a littleinsecure than he lets on, and it causes both of them pain.But things do get resolved, and the ending gives me much hope for them both.The dialogue is organic and realistic, and the characters growth is meaningful and believable This isn t an easy read, because it s filled with pain and loss, but the ending makes it worth your tears I received a free copy of this book from Pride Promotions as part of an ongoing blogtour A positive review was not promised in return
