8:30 pm 0 Comments A+ a-

Sidney has a rough life. Her mom is incredibly abusive both mentally and physically. One day, she’s awarded the escape she’s always wanted and thrust into a world she barely understands. Each day is a struggle to feel human and not terrified of everything around her.

Sidney has rules. Routines. Structure. It’s the only way she can cope.

When a handsome, yet mysterious stranger inserts himself into her life, Sidney begins to come apart at the seams. She’s having trouble sticking to her habits and it’s threatening to shred any hope of a normal life to pieces. 
Will this stranger help her in ways no other person can, or will things get worse for her? 

He comes with his own set of problems and secrets he’s unwilling to share. Will they work together through the mess of their pasts or will they get caught up enabling each other? Will their toxic relationship ultimately be destined for demise?


Hey! Here's my review.

The prologue sets out the horrific mental and physical abuse that the main character endured, explaining why she is so dysfunctional. It was quite disturbing to read and told in the present tense. I prefer the past tense style in the rest of the book. It was only halfway through the book that I remembered that it was classified as paranormal romance. The paranormal element is set out more as a twist than the main theme. There were lots of things that just didn't add up for me, though many other people loved this book. If you like a messed up character healing from a broken past with lots of raunchy sex scenes, then you might enjoy this, as long as you don't keep asking yourself "But why didn't she....."

I listened to the audiobook edition, which I received free from audiobookblast.com in exchange for an honest review. The narrator spoke clearly and at a good pace. She could not be classified as monotonous, modulating a little too much for my taste.
