We Found Love is a different read than I normally go for, to be honest. I was interested to see how the story would unfold and what would “happen” to the two main characters.
Essentially, this is a love story that takes place in an unusual setting… in a mental hospital. Riley is a long-time resident who has essentially given up on moving past his history, when Hunter shows up as his unlikely roommate. From there, they have to figure out how to make it work for them, in an unusual setting and circumstances.
This was a very quick read, although overall, it had a few bumps. One thing that kept interrupting my reading flow was the use of acronyms and descriptions that were never explained. Also, it stayed pretty surface level throughout. It was set-up as a “deep” read, but it didn’t go deep with the many issues and opportunities they created to do just that. On the flip side, the characters were very well developed. They both had a backstory and they were easy to connect with.
Overall, it was a decent read, but not one that I’d recommend unless you are looking for a different setting than other m/m books out right now. It wasn’t bad, just not a great story missing some elements to make it awesome (deeper connection, working through their issues instead of glossing over them, and their relationship never felt like it made the jump past friendship).
Out of four…
