Did not sleep- totally worth it.
Great characters- you write males and females both so well. And thank God you’re funny.
I think your ending is perfect.
Excuse me while I read everything else you’ve ever posted...

This story looks great.

There is a lot of honesty and realism in this story. Morgan wasn't a weird rapist that he has to save her from, Felix wasn't fucking up their relationship to get her back - our main lead was sexy and funny and damaged - and that had genuine, heart wrenching consequences. I think this story is absolutely lovely. What a pleasure!

Perhaps the best thing I've read on the site. Full of detail and life, structured beautifully and realistically. Everything melds together and flows like one long scene. The story will draw you in until the very end. It's long, but by the end you'll be wishing for just one more chapter-I promise you. This is how romance is done, ladies and gents.

I think I left a review before under a different name, but I wanted to make sure because this story is amazing. Just remembered it and decided to re-read it and it was just as great as I remembered. I originally listened to Nick Cave while reading this and let me tell you how much of an experience that was with your writing and lovely plot. I highly recommend new readers to do that. I don't know what exactly it is about this story but it left such a strong impression on me that when I see it in someone's favorites as I browse for something to read I get this nostalgia like feeling that just pulls at something inside me. I was letting time pass so I couldn't completely remember everything about the story and try to read it anew all over and I'm glad that reading this a second time left me the same as the first.

What an emotional story. I spent stayed up all night reading this and then some. I can't believe I didn't find this story earlier. The details and character development are beyond amazing. And the ending. It was unarguably fitting, and I can't help but imagine what happened after that. Thanks for writing this!

Fuck. This story is so brilliant. I'm crying, again. The ending was so fitting, Callum's epiphany makes me so emotional. I love it to bits and pieces. The story has such raw emotion all throughout. Marin is such a simple and gentle character. She shares my sister's name and in a way she reminds me so much of her. I love how cultured your characters are. Such great music taste, such love for books. The story is almost dark at times, but it is so fucking perfect. I apologise for swearing, but it's just. Again, thank you for writing such a magnificent story, I will surely be back. I truly wish you the best.
Happy belated holidays ;)

Hi. I am again rereading this. I just wanted to say this is probably one of my favourite Callums, in this chapter. The willow tree because there weren't windows... It's so perfect.
| Pione chapter 37 . 11/10/2015
I remember reading your story years ago and I just had to reread it. I love it just the same. :)
P.S. Thanks for introducing Nick Cave to me. I have a certain appreciation for Bukowski now too.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Hungrily devoured it, ruminated on it well after setting it down. I am so glad you had the ending so firmly planned and that you were willing to take a risk on what may feel, at first blush, like a very unsatisfying, open-ended conclusion. I'm usually a fan of tragedy, and appreciated this in particular because I've never been able to stop myself before wrapping everything up with a nice, fancy bow on top.
So, thank you for an immensely pleasurable read. A job well-done, absolutely.

Hi. I don't even know if you'll read this. This fic has been on my "to-read" list for about 10 years. For some stupid reason I never got around to it until yesterday, bless those rainy summer days with nothing to do. I didn't even remember about fictionpress... But here I am. I'm sorry I'm rambling. This is probably sounding totally random. I just wanted to say thank you. This fic has had me hooked for two days. I couldn't pry my face away from the screen. It's beautiful. It's made me cry and laugh and now hours after finishing my reading I can't get it out of my head. I love Callum and I love Marina. So just, thank you for writing this a million years ago. Sorry for my taking so long to read this, and sorry for this random review at 2 in the morning, but I just couldn't resist. Your writing is powerful. I wish you the best in whatever your life has brought you.

What an absolute jerk! I think I'm crying as hard as she is. He didn't just hurt her he ripped her heart out and stomped it.
| Sociopath-87 chapter 39 . 1/14/2015
This story is so exceptional. I am going to reread it and look into all the books and music that was mentioned in it. You are a very talented writer! I look forward to reading the rest of your stories on FictionPress.

...soooo he didn't cheat on her? Then I guess I have to take back that previous statement, BUT he still is in the wrong that fact doesn't change.
| lost keys chapter 32 . 6/24/2014
I fuckin knew it...I think everyone knew he was going to tuck up at some point. Don't get me wrong Callum's great but this... was inevitable.
