They each have a secret that could destroy their relationship…
Crystal and Sylvia are best friends, each the only one the other one trusts. But they each have a dark secret, and neither one knows how to tell the other. Crystal’s secret is that she’s gay and strongly attracted to Sylvia. She wants more than friendship, but she’s afraid to destroy what they already have by letting Sylvia know. And after all, friendship is better than nothing, isn’t it? But Sylvia’s secret is more sinister. It could not only destroy their friendship, it could also hurt Crystal—in more ways than one.
I loved the bond between Crystal and Sylvia. The trust the two share is something most wish for. Each carries their own dark secret as a the story unfold their secrets come to light which tests the bond between them.
Doebereiner is a new author to me and I did enjoy this story. I just wish for more detail and less dialogue. The story had a strong premise but lacked depth. It felt like I was being told the story instead of experiencing the story. I hope to give Doebereiner another read in the future.
