This book is incredibly long, brilliantly written, and insanely twisted - in the sense where you don't really know who's good, who's bad, who's lying, who has ulterior motives or not.
The story revolves around two main characters - Gwenna and Barrett. Gwenna is a beautiful ex-model, ex-singer who was in a super tragic accident, leaving her body and mind scarred. She's hiding herself out in the mountains, running a bear refuge and leading a simple life. That is...until she get a new neighbor.
And Barrett? Siiiigh. Barrett is everything you want in a main character. He's ex super-secret-bad-ass military guy (or is he?) and he's... broken. So incredibly broken, deep down in his soul, that he's shattered into a million pieces that just won't ever fit back together again. His PTSD is written so perfectly, you can feel his pain. The suffering he feels is tangible, and it hurt. I felt his pain every time he had flashbacks, every time he woke up from nightmares and ran to the bathroom to vomit and shake uncontrollably- and it was suffocating. And coming from a girl who grew up with a Dad who saw too many things in the service and never came back quite the same- it was so believable. Ella James wrote this character freaking brilliantly.
So...what happens when two people who are running from their past's come crashing into each other? And... can two people who aren't even whole on the inside fall in love with another person when they don't love themselves?
Then throw in the typical Ella James twists, and you're hooked. You can feel danger brewing the entire story. You know there's a threat, you just don't know who's it coming from or what direction it'll hit you at. And when it does hit you?? Good Lord, be ready.
The twist and turn of Barrett and Gwen are good, and well plotted out.
The hard part, and while looking on GR I can see others stopped reading, is the book is extremely long and while normally - that isn't a problem, it makes you feel that a GOOD 40% could have been cut out.
There are so many many details about so many many things that I can't even decide if they were just because the author felt like it or because they really had something to do with the story.
Example, there many many bath tub scenes. They take a lot of baths together. In one, there is about an entire kindle page describing how they are sitting in the tub together ... His foot, her leg. I felt bad but I got bored, and began to skim.
The sex scenes are hot, but so many were back to back. Chapter ends, the next one begins with the morning after and more very detailed sex. I get it, they liked to get it on but - again, I was bored and skimmed.
What I didn't do was give up. I had to find out the secret. I had to find out what was going on. I must admit that I didn't guess it until almost it was time, and then - well, there is another twist and we realize we are wrong.
At 95% so much is told at almost a rapid pace that when it does ALL get revealed and we get to the epilogue ... I was a bit disappointed. It wasn't really much of one after SO MUCH details in the book!
I was also sad that more wasn't discussed about her friendship with Jamie. What happened was huge ...
I did enjoy the author mentioning other books (Finding Eden) and her love of Lularoe leggings.
Murder is the newest novel in the Sinful Secrets series. It features Barrett Drake (Kellan Drake's older brother). Barrett, aka Bear, moved to TN. after being released from the army. He is a former special ops soldier who's career ended when an IED hit his team. He's suffering from PTSD from his time in the service. He is obsessed with his new neighbor, Gwenna White. He knows he should stay away from her. He's on a personal mission and somehow it involves Gwenna. Moving to Tennessee wasn't a random decision, it was well planned out. Now that he has met Gwenna in person, he may have to abort his mission. He has crossed the line and there is no turning back.
Gwenna White opened a bear refuge after she suffered a terrible accident that left her horribly scarred. Rather than dwelling in all she lost, she has taken a positive step forward in rebuilding her life. She's come to terms with the loss of her modeling,acting, and singing career. She's healed from the loss of her boyfriend. Now she is happy to take care of her bears. When she meets Barrett Drake, she recognizes a kindred spirit. She can also see the pain he suffers beneath the physical injuries to his body. She can see he's suffering from PTSD. She's been there and has learned how to manage hers, maybe she can help Barrett.
What starts out as a friendship turns into a beautiful relationship for them both until their pasts come back to haunt them. Someone is out to hurt Gwenna. Barrett may be that someone. The lines are blurred.
They both have to step back into the past to face the truths of what is happening in the present. There have been too many deaths and there are too many ghosts chasing them. The truth may kill them both or it may set them free.
Once again Ella James wrote an emotional book wrapped in suspense and intrigue. The plot is unpredictable and the outcome is quite a surprise. I could not put this book down.
