I have this overwhelming need to share the following two books with you. My reading obsession began in the fall of 2013. Since then I have devoured as many stories as I could in search of adventure, romance, fantasy and soulful love as an escape from my day-to-day routine of work and home.
I’ve come across some stories that disappointed and I’ve come across some that provided that needed respite from life. However, in my quest to devour romances with rock stars, CEO executives, sports stars, bikers and the occasional vampire; I found two stories that, essentially devoured me.
I had only previously read one other book from this author prior to these and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was unlike anything I had ever read and told from a perspective I had been hoping someone would tell. So when I nabbed her newest series, I couldn’t wait to read them and once I got started… I. COULD. NOT. STOP.
Then I was so emotionally distraught after reading the first book; I literally had to step away from reading for 24 hrs. The story affected me in ways I didn’t foresee and resisting the urge to huddle on the floor in the fetal position proved difficult. After the short reprieve, I started on the second book. I was ready to find out what was going to happen. If revenge would be as sweet as I’d hoped. And it was. So sweet.
It was like I was granted new life. I fell in love with new characters that were so different from the first two and made me feel a new onslaught of emotions. I laughed and hurt and I loved every word of it.
If you’re looking for a story that will speak to you on a level like no other, this is what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a cookie cutter story with the same style and formula that end with the typical HEA like so many books out there, then this isn’t what you’re looking for and you’d be missing out. It’s not all rainbows and flowers and unicorns. It is emotion and hurt, sadness, love and it was so REAL. It was more real than any story I have ever read.
Last but not least, the writing was absolutely BRILLIANT. The author wrote both in such an artful way. I was able to feel emotionally invested in every character without the usual need for excessive description. Her words were so simple yet complex. She managed to convey so much in such a simplistic way . There was no need to describe a character’s pain by telling me their heart was ‘bursting like a bolt of lightning crashing from the heavens’ . When they were sad, I FELT sad. When they felt loved, I FELT loved. When they were lost and empty, I too, FELT lost and empty and it was without the frilly word counts to make it more dramatic than it needed to be.
In all honesty, I don’t know how any of the above could convey enough to you how much these stories spoke to me. They may not be for everyone, and of course they may not speak to you like they spoke to me… but I wouldn’t be doing my part as a reader if I didn’t tell you how they affected me. I truly hope you give these books a shot. If you take up any of my suggestions in a spotlight post, I’d hope that these are the ones you would really consider.
