“You’ll have to forgive me, Darlin’, for all the unforgivable things I’m about to do…”
Loyalty is never easy – especially when you’re forced to choose between family and the man you would do anything to possess…
Born into a world that no child should endure, Magpie “Maggie” Crow is doted on by her loving father and over protective brothers. As much as she loves them, she fears them, especially when she learns secrets they’ve kept hidden.
Elliot McLaughlin joined the U.S. Marine Corps right out of high school to provide for his wife and son. He’d never intended to become a father so young, but was willing to do what it took to give his family everything they needed.
After Elliot’s family goes missing, he returns from war to an empty home. Obsessed with discovering who took his family, he investigates their disappearance and plots his revenge.
Passion brings Maggie and Elliot together. Obsession pushes them apart. As a bitter battle begins between Elliot and the Crows, Maggie’s heart hangs in the balance.

It’s artsy and very pleasing to the eye. As well as being a good representation of the story. Both in the visual representation as well as the overall mood it gives off.
So where in the world do I begin with this review? Why have I never read anything by this author before? This is a serious oversight that I will be correcting in the very near future.
This book was HEARTBREAKING. This book was COMPLEX. This book was VIOLENT. This book made me CRY. This book made me ANGRY. This book RIPPED ME TO PIECES. This book put me BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. This book was POWERFUL. This book was INSPIRATIONAL. This book made me SMILE. This book gave me HOPE.
On top of ALL that this book was fantastically written. It was well paced. The characters were multilayered and complex. Both Maggie and Elliot tore my heart to pieces, but they also made me SO angry at times with their actions that I wanted to shake sense into them. The Crow brothers were nothing but pure evil but damn if this author didn’t make me feel sorry for the father. And let me just tell you I DID NOT like feeling sorry for that murdering rapist. But his love for Maggie and hers for him…well, like I said, the author managed to get me to FEEL for him. And really that is what made this book so amazing.
This wasn’t an easy read. It was GUTWRENCHING in places. It was very violent and disgusting, but twisting through all that heartbreak and evil was a thread of hope. Two broken people finding each other and healing together. What more can I say? Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly.
