Some Spoilers...and why I took a star away for such a compelling novel....
I love the premise of this book, a guy that found the love the love of his life, she died very tragically, and he then becomes obsessed with the younger 19yr old college age sister, because of her "hauntingly" resemblance to his lost love.
I love especially how she describes the characters...they are "beautiful" but flawed....what I mean by that is they are not perfectly described with "perfect even white teeth etc etc, or no flaws to their beauty so to speak".
But I love the intrigue...who is really bad, who is redeemable, and who is just a plain monster. You just can't tell when it comes to Boris or Vladimire. They both are just compelling in their own way and just as equally monstrous as they are generous (well Boris not so much but he hasn't off'ed anyone yet)
Why I took away the star. Why is Vladimire and Boris constantly on Carter to be "good" yet systematically and almost daily insist she drinks several shots of vodka (even before sending her on her way with friends telling her to "behave"). Did he hurt her sister like this? Is he obsessed with her because she looks so much like the sister, or does he really want revenge because the sister was attempting to bail her sister out of trouble when she was killed)....it's so hard to TELL which way he is.
Boris, I don't have ANY idea what to think when it comes to this guy, he can do some pretty nasty things to Carter. His motives as to why are so unclear....at first you think he wants her just GONE....but then....he secretly punishes her for her behavior "mishaps"....but the real motive is unclear as well...
Another issue as to why I took a star away is because Vladimire seems to become extremely upset when anyone harms Carter, yet not only does he harm her himself, he actually ORDERS his other men to harm her as well. I get that most abusers don't see "wrong" in what they do....but to actually order her to be harmed by others to teach her a "lesson". This is definitely a Dr. Jeckyl/Mr. Hyde going on here. He can be the most generous caring person to Carter...but the second he's mad at her, he becomes quite vicious.
And last, they are all about keeping their promises but Vladimire broke his when he promised and swore he would never harm her again....yet he does and cruelly at that..
All this back and forth, all this drinking going on, and the back and forth with Vladimire and Boris's what I call severe personality disorders...you would think that it would just get on your nerves...but that's what makes this book so great...you just NEVER know what's going to set either of them off or why.
And finally, in the beginning to mid book much focus was placed on her tennis schedule....yet towards the end of the book, not much mentions her even going to practice, let alone playing.
So while some of the book I thought Vladimire and Boris were just completely off the rocker in how they handled things (especially always making her drink) their judgement and their reasoning behind what they do remains a mystery....I simply cannot WAIT for the next book!
The story told in first person by Carter Cook will draw from the reader a full gamut of emotions. Carter, who at nineteen is both naïve and wise at the same time, battles an internal conflict between what she wants for herself and atonement for a personal tragedy. She questions her self-worth and the motives of all in her life, especially, Russian boss, Vladimir Ivanov and his right hand man Boris.
Carter is employed by Vladimir to work in his home where his affection for her goes from a guarded attraction to a controlling passion. There are intense scenes that chillingly describe a brutality inherent in the crime organization in which Carter has unwittingly become entrenched. Is she a protected asset or a prisoner? You can’t help but turn page after page wondering if she will survive and revel in Vladimir’s fierce love or be a victim of it. The cliffhanger ending doesn’t disappoint and leaves you wanting more.
Kudos to Kat Shehata for a tight, well-written plot with compelling characters, great dialogue, romance, suspense, and even sprinkles of well-placed humor. Highly recommended.
