This is Sarah's story. Its not an easy one to read but it's hers. At the age of eighteen she made the decision to start her life over. She was going to hitch her way to from New York to California. She didn't know what she was going to do once she got there but she just knew she couldn't stay where she was. She had to run, like she has been since she was fourteen. She learned how to numb herself at a young age and how to light a match at an even younger one. Fire was her addiction. Her calmness, and the only thing she felt anything for. Well, until she met Kyle...
She had her plan. But when an older man that for some reason wanted to help her without payment, her life was flipped upside down. He actually cared about her well-being and not what she could do for him while he was on the road. He brought her into his home. And when she first laid eyes on his son, Kyle, she felt safe. He didn't exactly want her around but soon, he wouldn't want her to leave. They found their rhythm during that first day. She actually felt comfortable, and could see herself being part of the family for the summer. But the minute she felt happiness, she saw him...Brad. The family member that could rip her apart.
Brad was the older brother that got whatever he wanted. Who ever he wanted. The cop of the family. The one that went to college instead of staying on the farm. But, he didn't have Kyle's kind eyes. His were darker. She wanted to run like she always had before but she wanted to stay a part of this family. She felt wanted. She never felt loved but if she ever could, she knew this family could do it. She just had to stay away from Brad for a few days while he visited. Easier said than done...
Like I said, this is Sarah's story. She writes her story and that is what you will be reading. It's not a sexy, lovey-dovey kind of story. It's a story of survival. It's a story about her scars, the ones that you can see and the ones hidden away. It's a dark and twisted one but there are layers to it. Kyle and Sarah are young but not immature. She has worked hard at not falling completely apart. And he has worked hard for his family and that is who is most important to him. Will Sarah be part of that family in the end or will she run?
Sarah is one tough f- cookie!!! I would be in the corner of my room in a ball rocking back and forth if I was her. She might think she is broken but she is only bent. She might not believe she deserves happiness but she most certainly does. And Kyle...oh Kyle, he has such a big heart. And he definitely has his swoon-worthy moments.
Overall...it's a unique, dark, addictive read. I will warn you there are subject matters that might not be for you. Such as there is sex but it's not sexy.
“You’re sweet and all, but you need to know this: I’m one of the bad seeds.” He scoffed.
“Nah, you just haven’t been given the right soil to grow in, is all.”
Yet again, I had become someone to overlook; I was someone not worth speaking to. A mystery no one cared enough to try and unlock. I had become the garbage yet again.
Sometimes when you gamble, even if you win, you lose.
Okay that’s the “top line” of this book however, the story is amazing. It’s gut wrenching and different and one I’ve never read before. I read a lot of books so I look for story lines that will just grab me and keep me. This is the first book I’ve ever read about a pyromaniac. (You learn this early in the first chapter) Sarah likes to set fires, she gets off on setting fires.
The story gets REALLY ugly before it gets beautiful. Sarah is caught between goodness and light and evil and darkness of the King family.
I’m pretty sure the next time I’m having a fire in my backyard; I’m going to think of Sarah.
When I found out this book was coming out and it was going to be dark I HAD TO READ IT. This is another successful story by Danielle in my opinion. One that I won't forget. One that consumed my mind whenever I had to put it down. One that kept me on the edge of my seat.
This book starts off with runaway Sarah who also happens to be a pyromaniac. She meets Al who offers to let her stay and work at his barn. Enters Kyle. I love that man so much!!! Of course since he's so good there has to be someone who's the opposite. Enter his brother Brad, who I hated with a passion.
I thought Sarah was incredibly strong with everything she had to deal with that's been thrown at her in life. I felt like my heart was literally breaking reading what she had gone through. As I said before, I LOVED Kyle. He was so sweet and the perfect hero. Kyle's parents had their own little love story that I thought was incredibly sweet.
I can't wait to see what Danielle writes next!! I know I'll be reading it!!
