Together, they were on fire. Apart, they’re miserable. Can Simone and Elliott find their way back to each other?
Bereft after Elliott leaves her, Simone is urged to find solace in a non-emotional connection with a stranger that leaves her body fulfilled but her heart still empty. When Elliott learns she’s been with someone else, jealousy prompts him to make a move on her, but passion is no longer enough. He needs to open up to Simone, who’s not sure she can accept even his sincerest apology. A final run-in with his father convinces Elliott he has to make amends with Simone, no matter what it takes.
Heartbroken, driven by despair, anger and grief, but determined to forget and get over Elliott, Simone escapes in a non-emotional connection with a stranger that leaves her body fulfilled but her heart still empty.
I love him, and I hate him, and all I can think about is how I don’t know how I’m going to spend the rest of my life without him in it.
He loved her.
Oh, fuck, he loved her, and knowing it was like a great, crashing wave of grief and relief and shame all at the same time. He loved her, and he hadn’t been able to tell her, even though she’d given him everything he’d ever wanted in another person, and things he’d never known to ask for but knew he could never again live without.
Finally he confesses his feelings and fears, Simone forgives him, so they could live kinkily ever after.
It’s a nice ending, although a little rushed, and not everything is settled. I’m sure their relationship will never be easy to maintain.
