Actual Rating: 5+ stars
You know those books that blur the lines of right and wrong? Those books that make you uncomfortable because of the subject matter? This is THAT kind of book. But let me tell you, once you get to the ending (rather, that cliffhanger) everything makes PERFECT sense. There are times when being wrong is actually VERY right and I think Shanora Williams proves that in this heartfelt, emotional, and heartbreaking novel. This book SLAYED me. It made me rethink everything I once believed on the subject and I wanted to personally jump into the novel and and give Gabby a hug. WOW. To think that a book I was concerned about in the beginning would make my heart bleed like this is stunning. I am so glad I decided to try out a new author and I am thrilled to have found THIS particular book. The Man I Can't Have will open your eyes, your heart, and make you understand that sometimes, it's okay to do the things that make you feel happy (even if the consequences are severe).
Please note, this book does revolve a controversial subject in the romance world (view spoiler). But if you give a try and read it with an open mind and an open heart you will realize that things aren't always as they appear. This topic isn't one that many want to read about but again, Gabby's story is a delicate one. Nothing is revealed until the BRUTAL end and if you can see through the hard parts you will UNDERSTAND. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's one of my favorites of the year and I absolutely NEED the second one (like NOW). Sigh...
I won't get into the plot of this book you are better off going into the story blind. But I will repeat that readers should have an open mind when going into it. Give a book that makes you slightly uncomfortable a real chance because when you get to the end you see WHY and HOW it could have happened in the first place.
This is the FIRST book I have read by Shanora Williams but you can bet I am going back and devouring her blacklist of books in anticipation of this one. Her writing style and the way she tells the story is impeccable.
