    Perfect Addition to A Great Series

    ** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE ** Reviewed for Divine Magazine ~ POV: 3rd person, one character POV Would I read it again?: Yes Genre: LGBT, MM, Romance, Paranormal/Supernatural, Fae/Fairy Pairings: MM Heat Level: ★★★☆☆ Content Warning: contains instances of being-phobia and hostility from humans, mental health/dissociation I was so excited to see that there were further additions to the Being(s) in Love series, as it's been a favourite of mine since I read the first novel. ~ Before I talk about the book as a novel, I do want to mention why it's not a 5 star review, which it could have been. I didn't love A Dandelion for Tulip, the book that all the characters of this novel were first introduced in, but I was intrigued to read Clematis' story. However, it's been a little over a year since I last read a book in this series, and I haven't had the time or the opportunity to catch up, by re-reading books 1-8 before delving into this novel. That proved problematic and confusing. Once I was able to settle into the story, it was beautiful. Truly beautiful. And it's made me want to go back and re-read the entire series, now that I have more time on my hands. It's reminded me of the characters, the world building, and the atmosphere that I first fell in love with and want to revisit. I loved the way that the two MC's – Flor and Clematis – were so brutally oblivious to what their friendship had been leading to all along. I was honestly confused by their boundaries myself, from the first. One minute they were like an old married couple, the next they were barely, tentatively friends. It was beautiful to watch that slow growth, the gradual change and watch them both drift towards each other, slowly putting the pieces together and realising what it meant. The slight Dom/sub elements to Flor and Clematis' relationship were fitting for the characters. Nothing too heavy, just some demand/obey in the bedroom, and Flor's natural bossiness coming to light. It was nice to see that they discussed it, that they placed boundaries on what could be done or said, and that they accepted that part of each other without judgment. The political aspect of Being acceptance and tolerance was a great subplot, one that has bled throughout the entire series. To see the struggle from a different aspect, to see how it affected Clematis' studies and his relationship with co-workers and students, as well as how the human students took sides between human vs being, was a great addition, and one that was well explored. I must admit, I found the book to be really heavily emotionally charged. It could just be me, and the mood I'm in, but I definitely felt on the verge of tears for a good 80% of the novel. Maybe that was because I related to Clematis a little too much – as a person that others don't always understand, and who feels differently to what is considered 'normal' – or maybe because I held onto so much hope that he could have what he wanted, and that Flor would not fix, but certainly heal, him. It was a heavy emotional toll, but in the best way. And it didn't take much to get me out-right crying, though I definitely ugly-cried and snot-sobbed throughout the whole Clematis/Tulip conversation in the library. So, thanks for that, R. Cooper. Cathartic, a little gross, but a relief all the same. Overall, I thought it was a perfect addition to a series that I already loved. Full of emotion, full of beautiful characters, most of them familiar, and bringing a little bit of hope and love and joy to someone who had never experienced them before and so desperately needed them. Clematis was, perhaps, my favourite character of the series. Yet, I equally loved the gentle care and hesitancy that he brought out in Flor, during those tender moments. With a super cute ending, it's definitely one I'll be reading again. And it won't be long before I take a little break, delve into book one and build myself back up to re-reading this roller-coaster ride, before the end of the year. ~ Favourite Quotes “Clematis the fairy, once described by an art student as a 'wicked forest prince,' buying a waffle iron on sale is the best thing I've ever heard.” ““Dating?” he wondered again. What an innocent, beautiful, painful thing Flor had given him.”
