The nightmares find me.
They steal my breath, slowly suffocating me.
I’m scared.
I want it to stop.
He’s supposed to help me.
Instead, he evokes something forbidden.
I know I should run.
But I can’t.
I’ve made my choice.
I want him.
There’s only one problem…
He’s my therapist.

Eve has had a very traumatic upheaval in her life recently. Incapable of dealing with her recent loss and stress, she ends up in the hospital with incapacitating panic attacks and emotionally scarred. Preston is recovering from his own personal loss. As attracted as he is to Eve, should he be the therapist that helps her? Lines become blurred as these two try to navigate through Eve’s recovery.

“It’s only a crush.

I tell myself this over and over again. As if I say it enough it will make it true.
But I don’t believe it.

And I’m afraid if I lose him, I’ll lose what I’ve gained.

I’m afraid I’ll lose me.”

I’m still trying to process how I fully feel about this story. It evoked a lot of emotions regarding the damage Eve was suffering through and her struggle navigating every single day of her life. Preston at first is some type of rock for her to cling to but he’s sort of a mess too. From the beginning of the book, I thought the possibility that they might experience “transference”. On the surface I feel they are really good for each other, but this story was a roller coaster of emotion dealing with Eve’s complicated, fragile life. I definitely was invested in how the heck this was going to progress…oh, the angst! I had no idea how it would end up.

If you like to be put through an emotional wringer, you will like this taboo doctor/patient relationship. Was it a relationship? More of an engagement of service? It all gets kind of blurry and why do we need labels?
