A Mess of Reason - A. Wilding Wells

I received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


The characters opened their story and invited me in to witness their life like a dirty voyeur and I loved it. I honestly can't think of a single story right off the top of my head that made me feel as if the characters were literally talking to me.


Tess Harlow and Scout Steele have been best friends since they were teenagers. They have loved each other from the beginning but were to worried about losing their friendship to risk anything beyond that. With Tess's upcoming wedding Scout struggles with his feelings. When Scout uncovers a secret that Tess has been hiding he pushes Tess to make a decision for their future. Due to an unhappy surprise on for Tess and an equally happy one for Scout he whisks Tess away to help open up Tess's reluctance regarding her secret. A misunderstanding risks their happy ending but the truth shines a light.
