“This book deals with sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers.”







“No, Rainey. Let me look at you. I love looking at you. Even when I close my eyes, all I see is you.”


I dropped my arms, my legs trembling. This was Rowan, the sweet, kindhearted boy I loved. Yet, in that moment I feared him. The adrenaline was wearing off and I was suddenly so cold.


His lips parted as he stared at me, those blue eyes I knew so well slowly taking in my body as heat blazed behind them. He’d grown so large, twice my size at least, and it had never occurred to me how strong he was until now. Nobody would pick on him anymore. Not without getting their asses handed to them in a fight.


“Can I touch you, Rainey?” His eyes lifted to mine. “Is that all right? For me to touch you?”


“Always,” I whispered, unable to put any strength in my voice. “You can always touch me.”


He stepped forward and I stepped back out of instinct. He would never hurt me. Not Rowan. But what I saw in him now was the predator that had always lingered just beneath the surface. He wasn’t a monster like his family or David. Not him. He was something else entirely.


Pain shot through his eyes when I moved, his hands fisting at his sides. “Do I scare you now?”


Shaking my head, I forced my mouth to move. “No. It’s just -“


“Just what?”


“You’re different, Rowan. A man, I guess. You’ve grown.”


Blue eyes held mine, the darkness in them seeping away, but not entirely. His lips pulled into a tight smile. “You need a man. I’ve become exactly what you need. For you, Rainey. Not anybody else. Just for you.”


I drew in a rattling breath. “Touch me.”


Rowan moved forward and I held my ground, craning my neck to look up at him. He was shaking, his skin so cold that I knew I had to fix him somehow. “Rowan?”




“Will you kiss me?”

descriptiondescriptionSo hold tight because I need to go pet some fluffy bunnies before I start this review…
description OK, so…WOW. Where do I start? First, I have to say I think Lily White is one of the most versatile authors I have ever had the pleasure to read. Whenever you pick up one of her books, you never know what you are getting yourself into. Every one of them are unique and frankly, amazing. This book was no different. This is the second book in as many days where I have been blown away by how good it was. It is also the second book in a row where I will leave my review pretty dang vague. 
descriptionThis book was CRAZY. I am not gonna even lie. It was also amazingly well written. It is a relatively long book, but you won’t want to skim a single moment. Trust me on that point. It is told in a dual POV format and through the use of “past” and “present” chapters. The plot was super engaging. Dark. Twisted. Heartbreaking. Uncomfortable. Rainy…man…I don’t even know what to say about this girl. She made me depressed, but she also made me want to shake the sh!t out of her. I am not even going to touch on the men in this book…oy vey. Last…the ending. The only TINY niggle I had with this one was the ending, and that is only because something is mentioned earlier in the book that gave the ending away. As soon as a character mentioned it, I knew how this book would end. I think if that conversation had been left out the ending would have had a much bigger impact on me. Especially since as far as I could tell that bit of information wasn’t pertinent to the story. Still, even with that this book was an amazing read and well deserving of the 5-Stars I am gifting it. I can’t wait to see what this author has up her sleeve next!description
