Oddly, I liked Colin well enough - although the man's this serial murderer who reminds me of that dude from the movie Silence of the Lambs. I mean, he's building the perfect women mannequin heads by taking parts off different women who he meets at the salon where he works. He drugs them, drags them home through tunnels under their town, tortures them, kills them and then dumps their bodies. I already felt Avery was weird, but she confirms it when she doesn't seem too bothered when she learns about him because she's drawn to him and feels some f'ed up invisible connection. But HOW can you NOT be disturbed by the fact he's killing women? She even witnesses a bloody woman crawling, yes crawling up the freaking stairs from the basement. Just bizarre! The guy could be the hottest man I'd even seen. I mean we're talking tall, tattooed, muscled, bossy and just fine. But if he has a mutilated, bloody chick moaning and locked up in his basement, I'm thinking that's an immediate mood/deal breaker. No hot man can be that flippin hot!
Then we have the story about the vindictive mom who was really a dad yet Colin still considers him/her a mom. WTH?! And did I mention that the whole wig headed mannequin women thing is because Colin is creating them to be his pretend friends? I'm just at a loss. I can usually stretch my imagination really damn far, but with this one I'm shaking my head cause this is some seriously messed up stuff here. And yes, I feel sorry for the man. His childhood had to have been horrible to have warped him so badly. But wow! Unless it’s a paranormal story, I have to find the storyline a little bit believable and I just couldn’t with this one.
But hey, this is just my opinion on this book. You may love reading about this kind of stuff. After all, it does have a happy ending.
Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the book. Colin was one of the best written characters I have read in awhile. They did a phenomenal job writing his mind. He had the mind,body, soul of a killer. He thought he was a monster but that he couldn't do any better. His mind was completely broken and it was honestly beautiful. Which I know sounds messed up but it's true and it's hard to explain because I don't usually read these kinds of books. But I believe he was perfect. There wasn't a flaw in his character the whole book. There was always something broken in his mind. Even at the end, when he had the girl, he wasn't instantly healed.
Avery, I absolutely hated. She is what ruined the book for me. I understand that she had to be little bit desperate and she would have to have a few problems to be able to accept a killer for a lover. But she was just unbearable.
I was completely impressed with the writing and the development of Colin's character. I've never read anything by this author and it was given to me by the author through one of my GR friends. But I have to say that I am going to look for some of her other books because I really was impressed with Colins character. I so did not think I would love the serial killer but I did. Not in the I want you to be my husband love, but the your character was so perfectly written that I want to know more about your mind, love.
The book is twisted and also very creepy, but defiantly worth reading!
I have received this ARC for my honest review. I do recommend this to all who love a little dark in there romance.
