DUE RELEASE DATE APRIL 19th 2016
We're star crossed he and I. like a living breathing Shakespeare play. and what I want, I can't have.
Part one of this dark edgy book is filled with promise.
Told in third person, sometimes first person so as a reader I struggled with this at times I suppose it depends what you prefer and I prefer first person hearing the characters thoughts and feelings.
A dark and deep read, the characters Jane and Dallas were taken as children held hostage in dark cellers, the book takes you briefly to past experiences and the struggles and memories in the present.
Even now as adults both struggle to move on. Dallas has set up a vigilante secret organisation were tactics, his kidnappers groups and findings are discussed, this is how Dallas has found his way to deal with what he suffered along with his now reputation for being a lady's man losing himself in countless faces.
Jane writes as her escape, writes about kidnapped children and organisations.
It's a complexed read and difficult to sumarise.
Since freedom three things keep them apart.
One: The sins and secrets they shared in the dark
Two: The memories they evoke when together
And Three: the fact that they are brother and sister by adoption.
Jane: What was perfect and right and saved us in the dark is forbidden in the light.
It's not a romance read, yes it contains sex and a relationship but I found it to be a book I really had to concentrate on and found myself re reading lines.
Not my usual romance hearts and flowers or alpha read but lovers of complex gritty and gripping reads full of mystery will love it.
