This does have potential and hopefully, the author will give us all the details and fill in the numerous blanks that left this feeling disjointed and sorta scattered all over the place. I still got that "feeling" though, the one you get when you want to jump into the pages and rescue the boy. Protect him and stomp on the bad guys. The author does give you a good view of his mental state and the anguish he feels from trying to survive on the streets. I really liked Eden/Edie, she has a good backbone and I cannot wait for her to spill into his life with all the goodness he has missed out on in his young life.
This novella was captivating from the first sentence! I was invested in Lightning’s life story. Could he trust the gracious strangers who just stepped into his life and what was the deal with the black dressed sad-girl who caught his eye. I can’t wait to see how this story plays out in the next book!
The "guitars" are in the heading because I know I stumbled on this book because I purchased a later book in the series that was advertised as a rockstar romance, and, being who I am, even if it could be read as a standalone, I needed to start at the beginning. So, what I'm saying is, there's no rockstar presence in this one, but I assume it's going to show up soon. Guess we'll find out soon because I have to know more about L and Eden.
For those taking notes, there's not a lot of explicit content in this one, but what there is isn't especially comfortable to read about. This is definitely one for those comfortable reading on the dark side. This is a short introductory novella and it's got me completely sucked in so I'll end this review here so I can move on to Paul Harvey's afternoon segment (for those of you too young to catch the reference...And now, the rest of the story.)
Raw, edgy, dirty, nauseating, forbidden, sad and heartbreaking ... but so good!
The writing was excellent in a “good representation of the character” kinda way. As in, L’s POV jumps out of the pages at you, makes you think he is a real person writing his life on the pages for you. The authors ability to create this charter and bring him to life was so beautiful and thought provoking. The story of his life, not so much. Reading about his life sucked the life out of me. It was just so heartbreaking and gut wrenching. He’s forced into a life that no person should ever endure. It breaks my soul to think his life could be a representation of someone’s actual existence.
I’m interested in reading Lightening’s and Eden’s full story but only after some time has passed. When I’m not sick to my stomach and I’m able to enjoy the dirty details of their story. 4 stars for a glimpse into what I assume is a powerful story of evil and love.
Now I've downloaded the next and final book of this intriguing story about L, a man who was driven to do whatever he had to in order to survive on the streets. A man who is lost, broken and confused, but a man who may be able to slowly heal his eviscerated heart if he can only find that special person willing to try.
Raw, graphic and intensely dark. Contains a boy/man who has a history of being sexually abused. Details m/m interactions while he's on the street fighting for his survival. The romance however is m/f. May cause triggers as is written to immerse the reader in Lightning's hell.

This book gives you a little insight into L's thoughts on that last homeless night. This book really intrigues me because it is very different from anything else I have read.
