Four Boundless Stars
I was asked to read and Review Unorthodox Therapy and give it an honest review.
I had a hard time getting into this book. I am not sure if it was because I didn’t care for the lead character Lina very much at first or my mind was just in other places. But for whatever reason I had trouble staying engaged with the story.
The writing style is very emotional and goes very in depth, with both Lina’s and Thomas’s inner thoughts and feelings. It was one aspect that I really liked but also found a bit sluggish. There was just so much, the story just dragged to a point where I couldn’t stay engaged. I also found with such a high level of intense emotions, I just needed a break.
The BDSM aspect of the story was both beautiful and dark. Yet, I found Lina’s reluctance to accept who she is distressing and that ultimately helped to destroy her. The scenes between Lina and Thomas were written in a way that brought forth the erotic pain that Lina was experiencing. I was able to get a better understanding of how a misogynist’s mind works.
The story was left with such a hook/cliffhanger, that I was left reeling at the end. Both Lina and Thomas are left in such a state of total misery, but it is for the right reasons. I am just left wondering what happens next.
