Something Tragic by Jessica Yeh

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆★ There are some books that hold you in a thrall of emotions that they create long after you’ve finished them. You have emotions...

Denial by Jackie Kennedy


This book is almost unrelentingly angsty with ambiguous morality but hugely readable and strangely satisfying.

Amy is engaged to Josh when she first meets his twin sister Celeste. Celeste works with the organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders and is often in seriously dangerous places in the world trying to save lives. Amy’s first impression of Celeste is anything but good. It is a year later that they meet again. This time, while they aren’t exactly the best of friends, new dynamics enter their relationship.

The story is spread across almost a decade and a lot; a whole lot; happens during that time in Amy’s life. The chemistry is absolutely riveting and despite the uncomfortable feeling of both women cheating (Amy is cheating her husband and Celeste is cheating her brother) it is impossible to do anything but totally root for them.

Both the characters are flawed but their feelings for each other overcomes everything. Their deep, deep connection is the kind of old-fashioned feelings that totally resonate with us. We are usually completely taken by the idea that love doesn’t change or go away but takes root and remains the same over a lifetime. And that is what Amy and Celeste have even when walking on the very, very fine edge of love and hate.

This is another gem that first made appearance as Xena fanfic. In fact, you can see some echoes of Xena and Gabrielle in Celeste and Amy.

This is a long, sometimes frustrating, a lot of times hot but always engrossing read.
