I know this is like yearss to put my review
But had to take this out with me
This story felt so rushed and the ending was not satisfying plus i really really want Chris and Warren to end up together because they have been for like half a decade and you replace their partners with someone they met just months ago ?
Disappointed, Unsatisfied yet thanks for at least a good time killer

Good story. Portrayed something that happens in relationships without being overly dramatic, Warren and Chris were in a abusive relationship before(with the neglect and cheating), I liked to see how you showed it that wasn't only because Warren loved him that he continued this way but how he also feared to be alone, it is sad that it happens with so many people and relationship in real life, I'm glad he changed and moved on. About the drunk sex, well who did ever wanted to get revenge against his ex?
I don't blame him. But I blame how he did it. Where I come from, he totally would be in prison if pressed charges.
Nice to see Chris development as well, nad ever bettter Vic, I didnt thought she would gain so much role in the story and I'm glad she did.
Overall I really liked the ending, a realistic one, I'm glad they haven't end up together there's too much hurt and bad better cource was both to move one, specially since both changed to much.
Overall my only complain is the number of allies Chris have compared to Warren, like he didn't met this people first? I guess affinity played a biggest part then?
Any way great story, I still want more though.

if people can't see why Warren is wrong, they should look up the definition of rape. I feel sorry for the one's that can't understand it, it means they have no empathy.

my blood pressure literally shot up after reading this...
i felt like killing chris at the same time cooing and petting him telling him it'll be alright...
though i guess my hand will slip and hit him across the head and tell him, 'if you hadn't been such a fuck up then you won't be crying rivers for warren...
and warren, ugh...
well the all over transformation from mousy to sexy isn't really bad...
but the only thing that just really nags at me is the drunk sex thing...
yeah, he should've really just moved on and left the past behind as it should be...
well all and all this fiction really had me squeezing the life out of my pillow and cursing at my laptop every damn angst-y moment that i read... so in short this was an AWESOME read!
please do continue your other stories...

I really wanted them together but I'll settle for the alternative ;/

Just saying, I agree with BOTH Chris and Warren, but I absolutely despise Victoria by this point.

Im slightly disappointed... I know you wanted to go the realistic route - but I still wanted them to - be together! this story has left me a bitter feeling.

Ahhhhh This is such a wonderful ending to a wonderful story. You really developed both Chris and Warren well - I hated Chris in the beginning but really felt sorry for him at the end. I guess it should be obvious that he is now my favourite character. :) Great job!

THIS WAS GOOD. DISTURBINGLY SO. MADDENINGLY SO.
This has been an absolute angst galore. I simply drowned in it. The characters changed and grew-devolved and evolved. I loved Victoria. She was lovely. The story moved on and was layered. Your writing style was excellent... But certain aspects of this seemed contrived. Would Chris' confidence die away that quickly? A man so egotistical that he was sure his 'lover' would stay with him after getting his infidelity rubbed into his face- dissolved into a subdued, thoughtful, loving person. Seemed slightly rushed. And Warren became confident preeeeetty quickly.
But the main thing that's bothering me is that I can't forgive both Chris and Warren: the rape situation did not redeem Chris, but it did made Warren appear 'worse'. Chris had emotionally abused Warren for 6 years, playing on his desperation (refer to the start, where he says something like 'a desperate Warren was a horny Warren'. Manipulative. A supreme bastard.
But Warren's also a victim and offender. Warren had abused an inebriated Chris. Also a manipulative, supreme bastard. You CAN'T say that it's an eye for an eye though. Or that the equality scales are tipped differently now... You sort of implied that in your author's notes. I believe that both Chris and Warren are simply both 'immoral', or WERE both immoral. I'm glad that you made them realize their mistakes.
Also: The ending. I sort of knew Chris and Warren weren't going to end up together-too many holes and strains in their relationship. But the ending was sort of abrupt. Chris somehow ended up with a new guy and Warren just took the 'leftovers'. Chris seemed satisfied, but Warren didn't sound like he was... I wished you developed Jake more. He just seemed supportive of Warren. Not much else.
Anyways, THANKYOU for writing this story. IT WAS AWESOME. AMAZING. AND DESPITE SOME STUFF (minor titbits) I STILL LOVED IT! YOU DESERVE HEAPS OF LOVE AND HUGS.

I really enjoyed this story. It was so emotional and dramatic. My only problem was that the relationship between Sam and Chris wasn't really that in depth. I never got the feeling that Chris's feelings for Sam were anywhere near his feelings for Warren. It it ended in a real life way instead of giving me "true love forever" closure I wanted for the characters. However, I'm one of those people who always wants unrealistically happy endings and I must admit this story is awesome;)

Glad to read you're back. I hope it sticks.
I know how it is when stuff gets in the way of writing, I can't seem to finish my own. I hope you're not a teenager though, because that would suck.
Either way, I liked reading this one. I figured from the second "date" that Jake was in love with Warren.
When Warren first slept with David, I also kinda knew that he and Chris wouldn't be back together. I kinda hoped they did since they seemed to belong together, but I guess too much baggage would most likely destroy them.
From my point of view, there will always be something special between them, like a special connection, a love that still lives hidden under all those layers of their heart. But can't be. They have great men beside them that don't deserve to be let go.
I'm waiting for the Zercan thing to continue. Hope you have time and inspiration for it. I want to know what will happen with Parisa. It must be lonely, to be beautiful but not having a mate. And seeing so many great men, fall in love with them, but knowing that they are not the destined mate.
Good luck with everything.

Towards the middle of the story the characters changed so much that the only similarity were the names. It was too much. Warren's ending, in my opinion, was sucky. Yeah he got with Jake, but it was seemed like he just went with it because Jake wanted to and he was like 'eh why not'. In the first few chapters you build Warren up so much, the readers were all like Team Warren. Then out of no where you went Team Chris. It was sorta weird. I wanted to see more for Warren like watch his confidence grow and him become a better person but not lose himself completely. Instead he became this promiscuous asshole who almost kinda rapes people and then dates this guy at the last minute in whom he showed no real previous interest in. Chris gets his whole life turned around and becomes this great guy and moves in with this other great guy. It just seemed rushed and a little unbelievable. Hope you get a chance to rewrite it has potential to be great!
