This book may have some triggers but it's pretty light when it comes to Belle, Leo is a darker soul. It's a Christian romance novel.
What I kept questioning through reading it was if the DARKNESS was something that was in Leo's head or it was real making the book supernatural Christian. Confused. And, it could very well be both. However, it is specified that it's contemporary.
Sheritta's chapters are long (took about 20 minutes per chapter) but they are so worth it. Very well written emotions and thoughts. Very real building of a relationship and friendship. Relatable events. Her writing pulls you in and has you walking side by side with Belle and Leo. I felt their sadness, their anxiety, and their happiness. I understood where they were coming from and it's a beautiful thing.
There is book 2 that's coming out at the end of the April month.
Due to complexities of the novel and what it brings to the table, I recommend this to 18 of age and older.
The characters are well written and complex . Belle is such a sweet girl but she hides a secret that cripples her . Social anxiety is such a hard thing to deal with . She has a mask that she slips on that has her saying yes and trying to be a people pleaser when she is at work and out . You really want to wrap her up in a blanket and tell her that everything will be ok and we can work through it together. She does really grow in the story and it seems like she starts to come out of her shell and when with Leo , she is a fiery independant woman . She still battles but it seems like she is starting to fight instead of just coping .
Leo well he is such a mystery, he is a loner and there is so much more to him . He is fighting his own demon since he has been a teen . He is sweet and well kind of sexy and is attracted to Belle. He seems to be a calming influence to Belle and actually really doesn't sugar coat anything with her . He seems to bring her out of her shell and they are really good together , such a sweet couple . But when i say that you must remember that they are two damaged people surviving .
I settled down to read this book and was so sucked in by the end of chapter one , The characters are so well written . I really loved Belle she just kind of struck a nerve with me, she kind of reminds me of a couple of people i know . Even myself a bit . The story will have you laughing and crying . I did ugly cry in parts of this book trust me you will ugly cry too. Just so you know this is a clean read but it so doesn't distract from the story or the characters . There are a couple of spots where i did feel like the story did kind of dragged but over all the story kept me reading all night long and on the edge of my seat most of the time . Leo and Belle will worm their way into your heart , the book does end on a cliff hanger and i can't wait to see how it all works out for them . So if you want a sweet book check it out .
The characters in the story are very complex. Each has issues from their past that they are overcoming and each helps the other to heal as the story goes on. The story is told with a certain cadence and at I'm still not 100% sure if certain things are real or perceived. It was an interesting way to read this story.
This is the first time I've read anything by this author and I will definitely be checking out the other books written.
