Genre: Dark Romance
Actual Rating: 5 stars
Wow! This book is unbelievable! I'll admit, I went into this book knowing nothing (I just really liked the cover) but what I discovered blew me away. This book is unconventional, raw, dark, gritty, and at times, painful to read. It's not sick and twisted in a way that other dark romances are. In all actuality, while it is dark and uncomfortable, it's the psychological scarring that takes place that bothers me the most. I have NEVER read a book like this before. Lily White has stunned me with this page turner. I was continuously devouring this book page by page because I wanted ANSWERS. I wanted to know WHY the "heroine" was the way she was (although really, I already knew) and I wanted to know if it was even possible to save her. Damn! This book took me on a ride and I wanted to let go of the wheel so many times but absolutely couldn't.
If you plan to read this book I would recommend going in blind. The dark and twisted tales that weaves itself through these pages need to be read without preconceived notions- you'll really feel this way. But if things like (possible) sex without consent, drug use, prostitution, and things of this nature bother you then you should probably find something else to read.
This book looks at the darker side of love. Love that comes from tragedy and only gets worse from there. Most of the book doesn't even really FEEL like a love story. But when you get to the end and everything falls into place you will know it was there all along. This book will make you feel a little sleazy when reading it, but not enough to totally turn you off. It's just an original piece of work that is likely to stay with me for a long time. I HIGHLY recommend it to those who can keep an open mind. It's an awesome and unique read!
