I'm just finding this story from a recommendation from someone and oh my God!
You are an unbelievable writer! Are you a psychologist yourself? This is so moving and poignant. I am laughing out loud & crying from memories, this really hits home for me. My experiences weren't as bad as Brian's but I had them just the same and I'm realizing some things from his therapy sessions. You must really be helping people with this story...I'm so moved...thank you
I don't know if you still respond to any reviews. But here goes. I found Heartbreaker,and I loved the story. So I decided to read another of your stories. Why Not With Me.
In the beginning I loved the story. I loved that you were addressing the issue of Brian's abuse. I always felt that the writers and fanfiction writers fail the issue.
Being a survivor of my one parents abuse and the other parents reticence to step in I have always leaned more to the wounded Brian character. So anything that paints him as a wounded soul, not the selfish asshole is great.
Until you turned it into a BDSM story. When you are abused it's the inability to protect yourself that you live with. To be tied up and not be able to protect myself would be the worst thing that could happen to me.
Because I am an abuse victim I also work with abused and neglected children and youth. Working with our staff psychologist I must say your Doctor client sessions were spot on. But the doctor would have not ever agreed with the BDSM.
Then every breakdown Brian has Justin heals with sex. Sex is an addiction for the abuse victim. We are so desperate for some one to show us they love us that they confuse sex and love.
The first thing our doctors teach us is to find other forms of validation.
With that said I still enjoyed reading the story and will continue reading others becuause of your talent. Thank you.
First story I have read by this author and I think it is amazing. I became invested in our boys relationship and now want to see them continue their journey together - to be happy. I can't wait to see the other offerings from this author. More good things to come I'm sure:-)
Loved it. Explained a lot about Brian and why he is like he is. His relationship with Justin is so wonderful...love stories where they are together.
I hope to see more of your stories.
Thanks so much.
I'm going to miss this, but what an amazing journey this has been. Thank you x
Aw Debbie is so proud of him - Brian offering to get Junter a tutor was adorable. It really shows what a beautiful person he really is. It was there and Justin just helped him find it.
Loved the smut as always :p
I am in mourning for this already, but man oh man, seriously, you have no idea how amazing you are or how wonderful this story is. I wish I could read it all over again for the first time. I love how easily Brian trusted Justin here. Perfection.
Justin always knows what he needs, the pain though, I can't :(
I am an emotional wreck, he did it, he faught his demons and he WON! They didn't beat him - he survived and he told her to her face. I only wish Jack was alive to have listened to that!
I am stupidly proud of Justin, screw you, Craig!!!!!!
The book, he gave him the book AHHHH
LMAO I love that every now and then, Brian can queen out. It's normal and you wrote it soooo well
I am so gutted this is almost over ahhh
The birthday messages were so wonderful, and Debbie was completely IC. You're doing so good eeep x
OMG I hope you have him talking to that witch!
Justin is the best thing to happen to Brian, he knew from the start who the real Brian was!!!!!!
That did NOT hurt the story, it made it better, god, you write things and it just explains so much, seriously. I cannot get over how amazingly talented you are x
I want to kill Joanie, she really fucked him up :(
SOBBING! He has finally realised what LOVE is and how he's meant to feel with the one person that makes him so happy.
God, I love how possessive Brian is of Justin
He so badly doesn't want to end up like dear old Joanie and he wont, but the poor baby needs a cuddle :(
He needed that release, that anger, Justin knows him so well aw!!!!!!!!!!
Ooooh he needed to let some of that anger out, it's been bubbling for years :)
I love that he called for help, seriously such proud mama bear moment :)
“I just want you to know, Sunshine…it is what I want, and what I’m working for. And when you have it, you’ll have it forever.”
THAT WAS THE MOST PERFECT LINE EVER EVER EVER! Justin had to swoon, no?
