In a nutshell, 'Real Beast', the story of Laila and Arthur took a 360 degree turn from the first novel, Not Easily Washed Away. This here is Authur's life, a complicated existence with Leila during their six years mariage. There are unimaginable twists and turns as he endures for the love of Laila. His love was honorable, but Laila felt entitled. Authur was her ticket to ride. Arthur's Laila is now a "Real Beast", she's now turn tables. With everything he does, she goes retrograde, there is chaos. The sexual deviant her father was now makes her the same, the miserable existence she endured was now being inflicted on Arthur. Laila can't feel love. She betrays, deceits, and manipulates. Arthur still holds true. Loving her was easy, (or so he thought) then he married her. He is tenacious with a genorosity of spirit; he is strong and unbreakable, he loves her but love is never reciprocated. In Not Easily Washed Away, I felt Laila's pain, in Real Beast, Arthur has my heart.
Without much ado, this is a must read. I was entranced by the story. An easy read, it flowed without restraints; vivid in its description and interpretation (sexuality exudes). I felt the reality of his angst. This story leaves you wanting. There has to be, should be more...what happened to Shianne, Sammy, Laila, there is no 'end'?!. Did the story fell off a cliff. I ends so abruptly.
The funny thing is, I kept hitting my Kindle figuring there's more, the story ends so abruptly. WTF.
Will there be a Real Beast II.?
And just when you think it can'nt get anymore complicated it does. I was thrown for a loop in the end as I never thought that it would have ended that way for the character Shianne. Very interesting read.
It took me a while to get to this book as I had others to read so when I actually sat down to read it as part of my new Paperback Friday post #PaperbackFriday I knew I needed to get busy reading it.
The book started off okay but by the middle of the book I literally felt lost as to what was happening. Even though this book is based on real events, the author jumped around so much that it was hard to even know what year we were in half the time.
In books like this it is always hard to get upset at the choices the person or persons make because we haven't gone through what they have, but some of the stuff I just was shocked at why Arthur stayed. Half the time I wondered where their young son was during all of this because he seemed to be there sometimes but other times he wasn't.
You can tell Arthur loves Laila but sometimes when there is more hate and physical violence and you have a way out you should take it. Arthur learns over the years what Laila went through with her family it was not normal. Being sexually abused by those that are called family is wrong on so many levels and you can understand why Laila acts the way she does. But when things start happening in his own home and he is questioning half the time what his daughter and Laila are doing you have to wonder where the heck was Arthur's mind at in all of this.
It was heartbreaking to read that people all around Arthur and Laila were not for their relationship because of their religions, it goes to show that sometimes you can not break the tradition no matter how much you love someone.
Even though like I said the book is real and raw, it just was hard to really get into. Not only with the decisions Arthur was making but the timeline of things that would happen from time to time, along with some grammar issues that were found within the story.
