Slut (The Twin Duo #2) by Jettie Woodruff

5 Bat-Shit Crazy Stars!

I was provided an ARC for an honest review.
I thought losing my memory was the worst thing in the world. Forgetting who you are, and where you came from was like driving on a road with only right turns. All leading in the same direction. A direction I wanted to avoid, a dark tunnel that I had to enter if I ever wanted answers.
Losing my memory wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Learning, who I was, and the secrets I had kept was way worse. The unbearable pull and the passion we shared, mixed with the past that I didn’t want to remember, created a whole new storm. The perfect storm of two kinds of crazy. Stupid little fish.

This is the second part of Twin Duo series, the first one being Suit. This is not a standalone and you must read Suit first. Slut continues the story of Gabby and Pax and it answers all the questions in book one. I’m going to do my best not give any spoilers because the mystery of Gabby and Pax’s story is a key component of what makes this book so interesting. Gabby is released from jail and attempts to use hypnosis to regain some of her memory. Gabby gains some valuable insight with the help of some friends and begins to unravel the story of her life. She and Pax have to confront their past and learn to let the past stay the past and move forward with their future.
I was anxiously awaiting this book as I needed answers and I got them. Gabby’s story is really a tragic one that breaks my heart. In a sense, her amnesia is truly a gift. The horrid life that Gabby lived altered her and it hinders her from becoming the person she is meant to be. When she develops amnesia, she is given a second chance. Without the past haunting and constricting her, she flourishes into the person she was meant to be…happy, carefree, loving, kind. It really makes me realize how our environment and experiences mold us. Gabby continues to be one of my favorite main characters.

“I was a whacko. A bat shit crazy, lunatic.”
“I bit into his poisonous bullshit, hook, line, and sinker.”

It’s crazy but I felt somewhat crazy reading this book too. It made me question so many of my beliefs. First, I liked Paxton, which is crazy since he acts like a douche bag for most of their relationship. Just like Gabby, I bit into his charm…hook, line, sinker. He was complicated and damaged and together, he and Gabby have one of the most dysfunctional relationships I have read about. But darn it, he loved Gabby in his own way. He really isn’t a bad person. He actually loves greatly and whole-heartedly; he was just scarred from his own past.

“That man is falling all over in love with you. He can’t even see straight, he’s so in love with you.”

I could feel his love and that pulled me to Paxton. I wanted him to get it together so bad and love Gabby the right way.
I also am a fan of honesty and this book made question that. Some things are better left unsaid. Surprisingly, I agreed with Gabby for the secret she kept and I really wanted to know the secret that Paxton was withholding. It is never mentioned, but maybe that is the point too…some secretes should be kept.

I loved how this book really incorporates family. At the core of it all, I feel this book is really about family and love. The love between Gabby and her sister was so touching. I could feel how much they loved each and it breaks my heart they were separated. I love how Gabby and Pax always put their daughters first, despite how dysfunctional their relationship is. I think more parents need to be that way. I think it’s safe to say the ending is a good one, but a part of me wants more. The book is a complete roller coaster ride of emotions and I wanted so much more for Gabby and Pax. I believe Gabby and Pax will make it though. I’m excited to announce that there will be a novella about Gabby and Pax and I hope it gives a glimpse of how they become stronger and happier in the future.

“Whatever the future held, whatever the past held, we could overcome it as long as we both let it.”

Overall, this was a great read.
