That weekend is where the relationship of Elliot and Joan started. This book covers the next five years of their lives and how that one weekend connected them and the resulting consequences. I had mixed feelings about both characters. You want to hate Elliot because of what he did. He believes he loves Joan, but it's almost more infatuation than love. But along the way, you do feel his love in the way he knows how, and you almost feel sorry for him. Almost. Joan suffered terribly. But she also enjoyed a part of it and is drawn to Elliot, as evidenced by her going back and looking for him and her continued thought of him. After their first weekend, she never told a soul about him and fantasizes about being with him again. Her actions cause something bad to happen to a good person. And while it's not all her fault, she is to blame for a good part of it.
Strangely enough, I caught myself actually pulling for these two to get some sort of happy ending. They're both equally damaged characters that are drawn to the other. It seems that no matter what happens, they need the other person to live.
Overall, pretty good book. There are a few scenes that will be uncomfortable for some readers, but these were necessary to display the kind of connection Elliot and Joan have.
It's absolutely a dark book, but it's so good. Joan is not like other heroines you read about in this genre. And really, it's hard to say what the genre is. There are elements of romance, elements of erotica. It's part thriller and part horror. The story twists and turns and takes you places unlike similar stories on the darker side of the indie/NA world.
The characters are different, too. Joan is tough. She's no shrinking violet, even when hit with all the power of Elliot's dark side. And he's not at all your typical hero. Is he even an anti-hero? I'm not sure. Maybe he's just the villain.
But that's the fun of the story. Sometimes it seems so rare to read something you feel is truly original, and IKWLI was definitely that for me.
Joan has an obsession. Elliott. Elliott has one weakness. His Joanie. Joan and Elliott's journey is the epitome of dark and complex. She is instrumental in sending him to prison for 25 years but after 3 years helps him escape, he kills for her, he tortures her, he doles out rough sex as punishment and she craves it like a drug addict, there's bondage, spanking, drama, sex, sex, and more sex! Did I mention the sex? Good gravy! His body is her drug. In spite of the kidnapping and forced situations, she craves his body. She sacrifices her family, her sanity, her freedom for that feeling she experiences with him. What the heck??!! He is a sexual sadist. A sexual sadist with the body that makes a woman lose her mind. She is his weakness. He is her obsession.
This story ends on a cliffhanger. Part 2 is not available. However this installment is so dark, so dirty, so delish I can wait a bit for second installment. This story has triggers so if you're sensitive to certain adult subjects, please skip this story.
Whitney Bianca is a phenomenal storyteller and author! I look forward to devouring more of her stories!
