The more treacherous the lie…

WOW…so this book was…INTENSE. Lana sky is yet another new “to me” author I decided to take a chance on, and I seem to have hit the jackpot lately with amazing books by authors I have never read before. As soon as I saw the synopsis for this book, my dark loving heart beat a little faster and I knew I needed to get my grubby hands on a copy. I liked it a lot.
It was super dark in the sense that the hero was just god awful. And actually, that is the main reason I couldn’t go all in with a 5-Star rating. His treatment of Snow crossed the line for me. I’ve read plenty of dark books where the hero treats the heroine worse physically, but the mental torture this hero used on an already disturbed heroine made me wonder how and IF this guy can ever really be redeemed. I think maybe if we had gotten some chapters from his POV I may have had an easier time connecting with him. In this book all we get is vicious cruelty from him, and zero kindness. Perhaps in the next book will delve more into his head?? The other issue I have was that I felt Snow was a doormat. This didn’t affect my rating at all because short of cutting his dick off and feeding it to him, she would inevitable always come across weak considering how cruel the hero was. The things she put up with made me cringe.
Those two issues aside this was still a cracking good read. Well written. Well paced. The plot was engaging. Dark. Twisted. Intense. Heartbreaking. Rage inducing. Mysterious. The sex was hot (borderline dub-con). There was no OW or OM drama. It was angst on steroids (lol). There weren’t a ton of secondary characters, but both Snowy’s brothers were intriguing. Last, it all wraps up on a captivating cliffhanger that will leave you wishing you had book two in your hands ASAP.
