This book WRECKED ME. R.K. Lilley is pure magic! Not that I am surprised, the Tristan and Danika series is one of my all time favorites, but after The Wild Side books I had drawn away from Lilley for a bit. But after my girlie Jasmine from Reading Escapade told me she loved this and that it was super angsty, I had to read it! And I read it in 5 hours. Stayed up until 2:30 AM and everything. This is R. K. Lilley at her best!
Scarlett and Dante were childhood loves. Now they hate each others guts. With the benefit of occasional hate sex. But Dante comes in search of Scarlett with news of a family friend and Scarlett finds herself traveling back to her hometown and to Dante. That's all I can really say without spoiling anything for you, it's best if you go into this book knowing less.
Scarlett and Dante ruined each other, and it only got worse over the years. Both cannot find it within them to forgive the other, but neither one of them have gotten over each other either. The plot is a big mystery to the reader with little tidbits being revealed in the present, and through flashbacks interspersed throughout the book.
This book was so beyond angsty and I ate it all up! Lilley is the master of angst, so many points in the book where I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest and I loved every minute of it!
My favorite part?:
"Tell me you don't miss this."
"I don't miss this."
"No. No. No. I'm not the liar. You know why I don't miss this? Because it's a lie..... It was always a lie."
All I gotta say is RK Lilley better have that second book written or I am going to lose my mind!
Scarlett is the very definition of a badass heroine. She’s a survivor: fearless, strong, calculating, and quick-tempered. Despite poverty, bullying, abandonment, and injustice, she rises from the ashes again and again—with fists flying if necessary. Dante comes from wealth, but his spirit is just as wounded and his anger just as easily tapped as Scarlett’s. They form a bond in fourth grade when he takes on the role of her protector, and the two become inseparable. Their friendship naturally becomes romantic as they grow older. It’s an epic love story of two scarred soulmates, trapped in a passionate and volatile relationship.
The story alternates between the past and present. Both are equally fascinating, but I was eager to learn exactly what went down between Dante and Scarlett to cause their relationship to implode in such a drastic way. The way they slice each other with words is vicious—and wonderful. I’m an angst whore so I loved every minute of the barbs, backstabbing, conniving, jealousy, and hate. I equally enjoyed the passion, vulnerability, and deeply sensual aspects. There are some seriously hot sex scenes, but they aren’t gratuitous or over-abundant. They enhance this multi-faceted story.
R.K. Lilley is an exceptional storyteller. The narrative—told strictly from Scarlett’s point of view—is steady and impactful. There’s a landmine of history that includes some major blows, but only small pieces are unearthed at a time. It was more than enough to keep me hooked. There’s also a large cast of complex characters that are extremely well-developed and intriguing. The story gets stronger as it progresses, and by the end I was chomping at the bit to fill in the gaps. If you think you’re going to get even half of your questions answered by the end, think again. Trust me. You’ll want to have Breaking Her, the second book in this duet, on hand.
It started out slow, and being honest, not at all interesting...but then things started moving a long, getting more interesting, the writing getting deeper and I was addicted.
I loved the Past chapters, specially whenever Dante "spoke". He's impossible not to like. Scarlet on the other end, my goodness, I can only guess what would be like to grow up like she did, in the end I understand the jealousy (I'm kind of that way too, okay maybe not to that point lol)still she got on my nerves a bit.
Present Dante was, for the most part, a big mystery, not much development in regards to his character now that he's an adult, except by the end. By then I was all "Yes, Dante! Yes!".
Present Scarlet was so jaded, I could definitely feel what she was feeling and felt towards Dante.
I can't wait to read what comes next, because the way this book ended OMFreakingG I'm glad I've waited for both to be out. So 'Breaking Her' here I come.

Scarlett and Dante -- two people that come from two very different worlds.Read more
I didn't see the point in this book, why it needs to told as a Duet is a mystery.
