First, the writing was good. There were a few typos, and you notice when you see them, but it wasn't anything too terrible. My issue isn't with the writing, but with what was written. Some things were unbelievable while others just left a bad taste in my mouth. (Spoilers ahead:)
In the very beginning of the prologue, we meet a twelve-year-old King, who is apparently at school on a playground. A playground with sandboxes. Now, at 12 King should be in middle school, so I don't know what that boy is doing with a recess break, but it left me confused right off the bat. On the one hand, they seem like they should be in elementary school, but then they seem older than they are, and it just left me unimpressed with King's character. I understand that abuse can age a person beyond their years, but that's not what came through to me.
Neither King nor Preppy ever managed to endear themselves to me, and I wasn't really complaining when Preppy kicked the bucket. These characters aren't bad boys, angsty and misunderstood--they're bad people. And not just because they're involved in the drug business or because of the parties they attend. They're killers, and I wouldn't put sexual assault or rape past either of them. King flat out says that Preppy enjoys taking a woman even when she says no. And maybe that was meant to scare Doe (not that it did, of course) but that's not something to joke about. It doesn't matter that Doe's body responded to King's for their first few sexual encounters--it's clear that her predominant emotion towards him is fear, and that never stops him.Read more ›
King is a deranged psychopath, a tattoo artist, an ex-convict, a felon and overall a fearsome mofo.
Preppy is King's wacko sidekick who fancy bow-tie and suspender. I love his oddball personality, his vulgar and crude mouth and his wacky charm.
Doe as in Jane Doe. This poor girl suffered memory lost and can't even find a scrape of food to feed herself. Not sure whether she is lucky or unlucky when she stumble upon King, in all his menacing glory.
"I didn't dream about him. Because King wasn't a dream. He was a nightmare."
Right from the beginning, I fell for King and Preppy's bromance. When Doe came into the picture and King getting possessive of her, they are like one big messed up family.
King is a true anti-hero. He make me shiver not in a good way with his capability for violence. But at the same time make me melt for him when he did something that resemble a normal human. King is a walking contradiction. He seems to be a complex man who is neither good nor evil. He makes you want to hate him and love him at the same time. He evoked all sorts of complicated feelings in me. I wanted to smack him one too many times. Honestly, there is too much wrong with him, but there is an underlying goodness in him too.
"I think you are the most stubborn, overbearing, anger inducing, obnoxious, complicated, and beautiful man that has ever lived."
I like Doe's sass. She tends to have verbal diarrhea and being blunt at inappropriate moment without looking ridiculous. I can't imagine waking up and not knowing who I am. I understand her dilemma and struggle to preserve the little part of herself.Read more ›
There is a scene of him tattooing a cat onto a womans vagina. he is a tattoo artist and gets paid to give tattoos with sex. really sexy, right? Of course this is where the heroine sees him. Even though he has slept with countless women he randomly cant seem to perform, but the magical sight of the heroine makes him ejaculate. lol What disturbed me about this scene is that he started choking the woman he was having sex with.
Thats what i wanted to warn others about. How is this sexy??? I felt disturbed and nauseous... This guy doesnt seem to have anything likeable about him, that all i feel is disgust.
"I grabbed her throat with both hands and squeezed, picking up my pace, taking out my frustrations with each rough thrust in rhythm with the heavy beat from the other room....
I rolled out of and off the brunette who was luckily still breathing, although unconscious from either strangulation or the dope that had made her pupils as big as her eye sockets."
Im not sure what to rate this as i gave up on this story right away. lol But i wanted to warn others who may not be into stories like this.

King is a notorious career criminal who was just released from prison and just can’t seem to get his head on straight. He’s done time before, but this is the longest stretch, and he’s always been able to get straight, something is different now it makes him even more dangerous. He’s known as King of the Causeway and he runs the county, everyone answers to him. His best friend and business partner, Preppy, has kept their criminal enterprise running while King was imprisoned.
Doe has no memory. She woke up in a hospital after being brutally beaten & left for dead. But when filing a police report, she found that there were no missing persons reports matching her description and neither were her fingerprints on file. She had no one that missed her enough to search for her. She didn’t know anything about her past; not where she was from, who she was or even her name. She also has nowhere to go.
Doe & King meet at his welcome home party where she is looking for a safe place to sleep & some food. But things take a turn for the worst and Doe becomes King’s property, his prisoner and is not allowed to leave his house. She may not know anything about herself, but she knows that she wants her freedom. Even though King is a dangerous man who could end her life just as easily, he also offers her safety & protection…at least temporarily.
They are both confused about the feelings that begin to develop and neither are really sure about how to act on them because King has never had a relationship and Doe has a blank slate. But whatever they are building is never on completely solid ground because of Doe’s past & King’s future. Especially if they come to a head.
This book does end on a cliffhanger, but the second part will be released in August. I’ll be waiting…not so patiently!
