A Veil of Glass and Rain by Petra F. Bagnardi
"The first time I saw Eagan, it was through a veil of glass and water. I was nine, and he was fourteen."
Petra writes such beautiful prose that just for that I would give her 5 stars. Really beautiful!
A Veil of Glass and Rain is about two best friends who are lost in the friendship side of it and can't figure out how to move past it. Both wanting more but not knowing how to get there and as they say timing is everything. Brina's character is very passionate she does everything deeply including loving Eagan even though he is unaware of her true feelings for sometime. Brina's character was hard at times to relate to, she is so NEEDY with all capitals yes, and she knows it. If she didn't have Eagan close then she was a shell of herself more than she all ready was. Brina felt like a person that goes through life in a depressed state 90% of the time, and the only time she sort of came out of it was with Eagan. She never seemed to be happy just being Brina and that was just sad I thought. Eagan is pretty cool he is about life and living it to the fullest. Because he has known Brina for so long he does love her and he is use to taking care of her, it is almost a need for him to be her rock. In this way they work well together. There are also wonderful secondary characters in the story that I loved the twins Ivan and Alessio were great. The story at times feels a little disjointed, and the ending a little rushed. I do have to say though that I did read it in a day so it did keep my attention, and it is a different read from the normal strong girl with issues gets the hunky guy, (one more and)and the love scenes are beautifully written and hot.
I do look forward to reading more by this author.
