Review with Rating:
Perfect Dissonance 2 is the second book in the duology about the Eden twins. Book one was the story of Jared, where we were introduced to the demons that drove his life to the breaking point. Book two is the other half of the coin, so to speak. In this story, not only do we get to know Jessie’s history but we get to understand the man he grew to be as well as his personal battles.
I love that the stories of these men are so closely intertwined with each other but complete on their own. It was heartbreaking to revisit the abuse that the twins endured as children and to consider the harm that their childhood still has on them today. It also illustrated their fortitude to overcome as well as their strength to endure.
I loved Jessie’s vitality and vigor. He has such a strong will and is completely committed to his goals. With such strength, it was very sweet to see his vulnerabilities. Especially when it came to his childhood crush, Mai. I won’t give away too many details but there is a smokin’ hot romance between the pages of this book. What I especially liked was that a person with disabilities was the focus of this romance!
There was much to unpack in Perfect Dissonance 2 between the transitions of the past abuse with the current circumstances that Jared and Jessie found themselves in. I also enjoyed the focus on the sibling relationship and the struggles for them to connect as the men they had become. There were plenty of struggles and even some angst in this story but the journey itself was beautiful!
