In Blended, Sasha Brummer has written a story that makes you experience a myriad of emotions. This story has a very REAL feel about the writing and allows the reader to immerse themselves into the lives of the very damaged characters that we come to know affectionately as Whiskey & Rye. Hadley & Wade have an unexpected yet intense connection that is driven by their shared addiction. I loved Hadley. I loved her spirit. I loved her flawed sense of logic. And I loved how she seemed fragile & weak (because of her addiction) on the surface, while underneath lay a woman of great strength & passion which only becomes evident when she allows herself the freedom to accept 'Romantic Love' into her life. And it was Wade 'Whiskey' Brass with all his charm, brashness & money that showed Hadley she was worth someone's time & love. This story has humour, heartbreak, hard sex and brutal honesty...Sasha has done a stellar job with this book! I will definitely be reading more from her.
