I read a book a day. Everyday!
Its been 3 days before I could read a new book. I just could not stop thinking of all the twists and turns in this book. What an ending. It made me wonder about so many things.
Its dark and no sunsets and roses but it sure make you think! for daaaayyyyyssss
Yes, it's disturbing. Yes, it made me think I was crazy for reading it and anticipating what would happen next. However there was just something about Sam that pulled me in. Throughout the story we get flashbacks to his childhood and I felt so sorry for what he had gone through. No, it didn't excuse his behavior; but it did help me to understand and to see the vulnerable, lonely boy who wanted desperately to live in the light instead of the dark where Sam felt most comfortable.
Vesper is a strong character. Some may think she was weak for the way her emotions bounced around and changed. But when you look at the whole picture, you see that Vesper never really gave up and at the end, the decisions that she made were made by her. Seriously, can you imagine being there that length of time and living under the circumstances she did and not feeling something? Sure, your immediate response is to say there's no way. But honestly, with no other stimuli whatsoever, can you really fault her for wanting what she did? Makes you think, or at least it did me.
This book isn't for everyone and contains a number of scenes that are hard to read. It was a love/hate suspenseful story about a man and his obsession with a woman.
Before the heroine he broke into houses and raped OW in front of the husband or boyfriends. The heroine was his last rape victim. After the heroine left him he killed innocent people to get her attention, something he never did before. Besides raping the heroine he abused her and attempted to do something that was unforgivable to me. He truly was a monster. The heroine had an excuse for her behavior because she was traumatized. The fact that the hero was abused as a child and ostracized does not make his behavior acceptable or justified.
However I could not help but love that the hero was obsessed with the heroine. He falls hard and fast and kidnaps her with the intention of keeping her with him permanently. The fact that he did not get jealous when she returned to her finance and resumed a sexual relationship with him was not only out of character but honestly disappointing. During the separation the hero was biding his time by killing while waiting for her to return. What a catch. Even though he didn’t deserve it he gets his HEA with the heroine. Honestly I would have preferred that she had a HEA ending with her fiancé. At least though she tried to make it work when she returned to him.
I would have given this a 1 star rating because under no circumstances would I ever suggest this book to a friend, but it was well written and was a more unique story line than most of the dark romances.
Loved Nina's book 'Debt'.
Bottom Line: I love dark romance, but I really didn't enjoy reading a book about a woman who develops Stockholm's syndrome.
Behind Sam's psychotic mind is an interesting story. His life of abuse from a publicly-known family has brought him to that state. It shows that we never know what's behind closed doors.
Vesper, her life became a reversed, twisted Cinderella. She got taken from her daily boring life into to a dangerous world of a rapist.
But yet, the story tells so much more than that. Nina G. Jones is the best writer I'd discovered in a while. Just when I thought I found the perfect author, I stand corrected. This story here, you find that love can be found through madness. But, be warned, if your sensitive to dark and triggers, IT WILL BE WISE TO LEAVE THIS ALONE. IT'S NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.
It takes a talented writer to create the story AND make the story and characters likable.
Yes, the story/subject matter is dark and disturbing. But the journey through the story is so worth it.
Definitely recommended for fans of dark subject matter.
I recently joined a spoiler group for the book and loved the book more. I enjoyed hearing from Ms. Jones on how she came up with the story and how she researched for it.
