~WRITING – PLOT – PACE~
It’s always hard for me to review a book like this. I don’t want to say too much and spoil anything but I also want to give readers a sample of what to expect. I will say that it was very well written. Like I mentioned, probably my favorite book to date from this author. The pace was fantastic. The plot was engaging and had me hooked from page one. It was dark. It was twisted. It was gritty. It was gross. It was f-cked up. It had twists and turns. Blood and gore. Pleasure and pain. and I LOVED every single minute of it. I really wish I had book two already now because I NEED to know WTF is going down.
Romero…he was the devil himself. A totally sexy as sin psychopath. He owned it. He didn’t make any excuses for it. He reveled in it. He claimed Calista as his own right from the start. I loved him. I don’t know what that says about me and I don’t rightly care (lol). I can’t wait until book two to see what he is hiding.
Calista…the perfect other half to Romero. Not sure out of these two which was the more f-cked up. Cali was her own brand of psycho. She didn’t quite own it as much as Romero. But she was getting there. I loved her character and hope she gets the chance to exact much more revenge in the next book.
This one had a good cast of secondary characters. There wasn’t a lot of them but the three that feature heavily were all very intriguing. I wouldn’t mind seeing each one get a book. Of course, I suppose that depends on what happens to them in book two. They may not even be still breathing by the end of that one.
This one was medium hottish. The sex scenes were hot, and the frequency felt appropriate for the story. This couple had crazy hot on page chemistry and their connection was very insta-lust.
Low. I didn’t find this one angsty at all. It really wasn’t the type of book that uses angst to move the story along. There also wasn’t any OW or OM drama.
~IN THE END~
I loved this one. I have already said that a few times in this review but it was worth mentioning again. I have a thing for dark romances. The darker and twisted they are the more I seem to enjoy them and Natalie Bennett knows her way around twisted for sure. Everything about this one from the writing itself, to the plot, to the character development, was fantastic and shows me that this author just keeps learning and improving with every book that she releases. This one gets TWO huge thumbs up from yours truly.
