This is the story about an abusive man (Dylan) who beats his wife. A wife (Jane) who is filled with self loathing and has been made week due to years of abuse. She is saved by her neighbour (Malice) who turns out to have a sad past of his own and is now a criminal version of a bounty hunter.
The makings of a good story? Possibly, but that's not what happens.
This turns out to be a story of two weak people who want the easy way out of where their lives have left them. Jane blames everyone for not seeing that she needs help and not saving her from her husband and although she admits the fault in her thinking she doesn't change anything above her situation. Her inner dialogue acknowledges that she needs to make a change and even rebels against her husband in her mind with snarky comments and the finger behind his back but I think this was just a ploy by the author to stop you from hating this character.
Malice does the noble thing and helps her get out, but really has no depth, he has watched her get beat up for months and has been falling for her. He intercedes one night and then leaves her in hell for a few more weeks, if broken ribs hadn't forced her to his door would he ever have done anything to help her?
Then there's just pages and pages of them winding each other up and going around in circles saying the same things over and over again. I don't deserve her, I don't deserve him, I hate myself, I'm worthless. I'm lying to her but why won't she give her self to me and trust me. He's lying to me and I just came from a relationship full of lies but I want him.Read more ›
At one point, I took a break for a day from reading this. The writing was decent, not too many grammatical errors, which was a nice change from a lot of self-pub books I've read recently. Will I buy and read the next one? Perhaps. Although when I got to the end of this book, I was hoping to see that the next one would be about either Ty or Bronx. Much to my disappointment, the next book will be about Vince, Malice's dad that we met for all of 5 seconds.
How would you describe love?? Well let me tell you how Jane doesn't describe it. It's not a backhand to the face, a kick to the ribs or the forced sexual relations she's had to endure for the last 6 years.
Dylan is Jane's husband and is of the old school, where women are made to be seen and not heard. Do as your told and don't have an opinion.
Jane has suffered abuse at the hands of the man I like to refer to as, "The demon spawn of 'Satan". Well it all comes to a head one night when Dylan tries to kill her furry friend " Rocco" her pet Lab who is trying to fend off her husband’s abuse.
But salvation is found in the form of a neighbor by the name of Malice, who after months of enduring the sights and sounds of Jane's abuse, can no longer sit by and do nothing. So he jumps the fence literally and figuratively and saves Rocco and Jane in the process.
Jane sees Malice as her Knight and Shinning Amour, but he's anything but. Malice is tarnished and hiding demons of his own.
Together these two pull each other from the darkness that surrounds them and learn to accept the love that they have to give and leave the past where it belongs, in the past.
At times it was a little hard to follow as this is a different type of writing style that I'm used to, but all in all it was an enjoyable read for me. I look forward to reading the stories of the other characters from this book.
The start of the book is quite full on and extreme, Jane is in her mid to late 20's and married to a complete and utter waste of space, Dylan. You find out straight away that Jane is abused, and to quite an extreme standard, so if scenes of Domestic Violence hit a raw nerve or it's something you can't quite get on board with, in your books, this may shock or upset you. I did feel it was done well, and very emotional. It helped to start the story at Jane's lowest point.
Malice, lives next door to Jane, and can't bear to listen to what goes on next door any longer.
One night changes both of their lives forever.
I'm not going to summarise the story anymore as I feel I will probably end up, just spoiling it by telling too much of it. It needs to be unraveled by itself.
We get taken on a journey of recovery but also new fears, and issues are brought to light, and that is for all characters involved, not just Jane.
I really loved Malice's friends/team/brothers, a combination of all really. They are obviously all extremely close, and you can tell that they all have their stories to tell. They have grown up together through incredible hard times, and now work together. You have to wait until the end to really get the gist of what they do and how they are involved, but it's something that you know you want to learn more.
I actually found all the characters in this book were really addictive, and all had stories to tell, but Jane was such an incredible leading character.Read more ›

This book was a cheap gem. The writing was good. The story was a but dark, but what I like most was that it wasn't a perfect HEA. These people were flawed and so are their lives.Published 1 month ago by DodiLa
