This is a pretty decent cover. A good representation of the heroine. Great composition. Interesting typography. I would have made the byline smaller and moved it a little higher up under the “C” and then moved it all down a bit. Overall though this is one of the better covers I have seen.
Sigh…this book had the potential to be right up my alley. Dark and twisted as f@ck and some parts were really really good (the last 50% earned the 3-Stars). Unfortunately, the constant time jumps (mostly in the first 50%) stopped me from totally enjoying this one. We would have a scene with Angel and Sam, and then it was one year later. Another scene and we jumped two years later. Another scene and we jumped three years later. Not to mention I found all these time jumps confusing as hell. Particularly in the beginning. I had no idea who was who. Who was talking to who etc.
So as you can see this one was a bit of a mixed bag. The good parts were REALLY REALLY good, and I did enjoy this one enough that I will read the next book in the series. That said I think the constant times jumps (especially in the first half of the book) and the confusion they caused really let this book down. Also, some parts were a little TOO much even for me. Her being raped and hurt badly by other men and him still fucking OW for the fist half of the book caused me to disconnect a bit with them as a couple. I also struggled with him as the (anti) hero allowing her to be continuously raped for years before doing something about.
So overall I am going to give this three stars mainly for the second half of the book. I do think this author is very talented and as I said there were many parts that I liked a lot. Readers of dark books will find this an enjoyable read. Just make sure you heed those trigger warnings.
