Four Years Later (Four Doors Down)
About this deal
Right. Working a job you don’t even need, you little shit.” Fable hisses the last word at me, and it stings as if she’s lashed at my skin with a whip. Drew settles his hand on her arm, sending her a look that says “chill the hell out.” Four Years Later puede leerse como un standalone pero es, en realidad, la continuación de Four Doors Down, y desde que leemos la sinopsis sabemos que cosas malas van a pasar. Tres años después de los eventos del primer libro, Becca y Ryan siguen disfrutando de su idílica relación, cuando una noche Becca es violada. A partir de allí su vida se viene abajo; pierde la confianza en si misma, su fuerza vital, sus ganas de vivir. Y lo peor: cree que se lo merece, se culpa de lo sucedido.

ACTUALLY at one point I just wanted you to put me out of my misery! A Tillie Cole shout out there... she's murderous with her plot twists! Glancing at my phone, I see my new student is almost ten minutes late. I’m only giving him fifty minutes, then. I have to go to my other job after this and don’t have time to wait for him. I work some nights and weekends at a crappy little diner downtown and I don’t really like it there. The boss is an arrogant jerk and the customers are grouchy. But the tips are decent, and I need whatever dollars I can get.
For crying out loud! Somebody just ask that girl if she's okay. Let her tell you what happened that night. Don't take someone else's word for it. Chelsea is not my type at all. She’s smart and totally shy. I’m pretty sure she’s even a virgin. But when she gives me the once over with those piercing blue eyes, I’m really over. But in a different way. I won’t deny her ass is killer, but it’s her brain and the way she seems to crave love—like no one’s ever given her any—that make me want her more than any girl I’ve ever met. But what would someone as seemingly together as her ever see in a screwed up guy like me? Maybe you forgive them. Maybe you’re friends with them. But the past stays behind you – especially in recovery. That’s usually the only time moving forward is bearable.

Now I wish I’d moved with them. Gone to Stanford like they originally wanted me to. Well, like Fable wanted me to. Drew told her not to push. The more she pushes, the more I pull away. They should not have ended up together, or if they did it should have been a COMPLETE seperation. His redemption should not have come as a result of being the reason she got over it bc he was there to make her feel safe four years later and he most definitely did not deserve to be rewarded her companionship while still getting to date other women....while still loving her...Yeah right. It came off like becuase he stayed by her he deserved to have her after a point. The entire epilogue was about how great he has been, how he helped get her over everything, how he deserved a second chance bc he stood by her blah blah blah! Not one mention of if she was in therapy (the word isnt even mentioned in the entire book), all that got her through it apparently is Ryan, which sorry it doesnt work that way. Becca spent more time comforting him than anyone spent comforting her, grrrrrr. Also in the end they immediately leave to go have sex, like what?? She couldn't sleep with anyone else (he did of course), we have no clue how she got to this point of being ready other than it had been four years and he is conveniently there to reap his reward of sex for doing the bare minimum of being her friend? No one asked him to make all his sacrifices, he did it bc he felt guilty for how he treated her, so narratively speaking she doesnt owe him anything but the epilogue was written so you felt like she DID owe him something, with everyone going to bat for him, and that is gross. Too bad no one went to bat for her and she doesn't even get the consideration to have her trauma treated as if it mattered by going to therapy or becoming good on her own. Of course the magical hero is the one who healed her *rolls eyes*And he never even gave Becca the time to explain. Yes, I get that he was angry and I would be too but after some time he could've talked to her.
