Wednesday by E.L. Todd

It took me a long time to forgive Hawke—a very long time.

But now that I have, I feel nothing but unbridled joy. Everything is exactly as it should have been two years ago. He’s just what I need, and not just now, but forever.

Until disaster strikes.

We promised each other forever, but will Hawke honor that promise when his world comes crumbling down? When the ground cracks below his feet, will we still stand?

Or will we fall?

Did this book give me a heart attack? Yes. I swear…I think E.L. Todd might like to torture readers and her characters.

This book broke my heart. It truly did. I think once you read the first two books (Monday and Tuesday), its so hard to watch Frankie and Hawke ever struggle in anything. At this point, I’m so invested in them that I’m worried if they hit a patch of ice while walking on the sidewalk. I mean, its intense and sort of crazy.

To be entirely honest, I really love E.L. Todd’s writing. She manages to evoke such imagery and very intense feelings for me. I feel like writing about love is truly her calling. She nails it.

But I did not love this book. As a reader, I felt like we Hawke and Frankie go through some of the same battles over and over and to be honest, it was starting to drain on me a bit.

With that said, I did admire aspects of the book. One is that Hawke finally seeks help. I apologize if that is a spoiler for some, but its a part of the book that is paramount. I also valued that Frankie rises above Hawke and manages to achieve other goals of hers. But to be honest, while I liked these things, they also annoyed me. There was a part of me that almost didn’t want them to end up together anymore. A part of me wanted them to not be together just because their back and forth was starting to drain on me mentally.

I still would recommend this book and when I post my review to Amazon, I’d still do 4 stars. This book isn’t written badly or anything like that. Its just that for myself, I feel like two books would have been more adequate or if this book were shorter. But I think to keep seeing Frankie and Hawke do this push and pull, it just became too much for me at certain points.

Its a great series and Frankie and Hawke have a love like no other. Its a love that I think most of us can only hope to find for ourselves.
