The characters were so unrefined and real, we don't get the G rated version of them, that is for sure, and I am so happy about that becasue this book would not be the same if the main characters had been hollywoodised. Colin is so raw and demanding and he is such a contradiction. I found myself hating him one minute and loving him the next, and wondering what the hell was going on another. He was raised to be a monster by a monster and he struggles on a daily basis to hide this part of himself. He was born to be a predator but above all he feels like his one chance at redemption is to protect Annie. He tries time and time again to justify and rationalise his feelings for Annie, but is unable to find redemption with his feelings and emotions. I was a bit worried about 3/4 of the way through in the direction his character seemed to be going, but i should have trusted the author. At one point in the book, he pretty much says 'screw it all' and lets the dark side surface and it was HOTT.
Annie is interesting, I feel like we don't ever really get to know the real Annie, she is so used to playing this part of a good little girl and hiding her past, that she has kind of lost her way in the process. She has this odd relationship happening with Jacob, which I believe is just to get a rise out of Colin.Read more ›
I actually started right before I went to bed, thinking, "Oh, let me get into a few chapters, then I'll call it a night." Nope. Didn't happen that way. I completely devoured this book, in mere hours. I kept wanting to see where this rabbit hole led, needing to add just one more piece to the puzzle. In fact, I reached the 40% mark without even highlighting or noting a single thing. I was so immersed that it was straight reading!
This is obviously not "traditional" romance. The main characters, Annabel and Colin, share a dark, disturbing past. From the very beginning, you get the sense that something is off about them, but you'll only want to delve deeper, hypnotized. The dual point-of-view and use of flashbacks add so many layers to the story and amplify the suspense.
Pretty Little Things gave me reading-chills, those moments that stop your eyes in its tracks as it darts across the page, the ones that catch you by surprise and jolt you to attention. Gripping. Mesmerizing. Spine-tingling.
Annabel and Colin's scenes bleed a dark, mysterious intensity that can make your stomach flutter and your muscles tense. She is the delicate innocence contrasting with his tortured soul and controlling, possessive side. There's an intriguing twist to their relationship, as well...one that teases the illusion of "taboo."
When it was all over, I had to walk around my kitchen and have a snack at 2 in the morning...seriously...Read more ›
This book brought me to my knees. I read it in one day and I am pretty sure I forgot to eat. I rarely read a book that is capable of eliciting so many emotions. It’s hard to put into words how I felt while reading this book. It took me over a week just to write this review. I was taken on quite the journey with this one!
The book starts with us understanding that Annabel was trapped in a situation where she presents a façade to the world. She and Colin have escaped a horrible past, but they haven’t eliminated the dangers, they have simply outrun them… for now.
“Here we don’t pray for the weak, we prey on the weak.”
For Annabel, living in this dynamic is a daily struggle. She is 17 almost 18. She lives under the thumb of her “brother” who wants to protect her by micromanaging her life. She wants to be free and live as a normal teen does, but her biggest problem is that she has never known what normal is. The only constant in her life is Colin. He is all she knows.
Colin rescued her, but he knows that danger is still in her presence every day. Escaping the devil who held them left him full of demons. He trusts no one with Annabel… including himself.
“It wasn’t as easy for others to accept the darker side of themselves. Most like to cling to the notion that hesitation still marked the presence of morality. Deep down we were all just selfish animals. We liked to take… or be taken.Read more ›
