I would totally pay to see the Violets show. I would also let Carter manage the bell out of my money if I had any.
I was annoyed with Rinker and Lindsey, as I suppose I should have been. Luke grated on my nerves as well, but he didn't turn out to be as awful as I was expecting.
Violet fascinated me from start to finish. As did Carter. And of course Edie. <3
Morgan Parker has earned five stars for plenty of intrigue, suspense, love, and of course... MAGIC!
At first glance the story seems to simply revolve around an illusions act, yet there are many other facets at play. Violet, our heroine, is seemingly involved romantically with her 'manager' Luke. Yet she also seems to be drawn to Carter, whom she brings onstage as a volunteer one night at her show. While Violet tries to juggle both her love life and her career, there are other players who want nothing more than to destroy her successful life by forcing her to repay a debt that was used to make her dreams come true.
The use of mystery and illusion to convey this storyline was utterly brilliant. I never knew what to expect next and my heart raced while taking the wild journey that this book delivered. I was caught up in the love that Luke had for Violet, yet was completely taken with Carter's affection for her as well. The absolutely sinister secondary characters that were hell bent on trying to break Violet and her world were written perfectly and added more to the already complicated puzzle.
Morgan Parker is able to combine some very sexy scenes, together with ones that are downright gritty, with ease. His way of writing is smart and can be both conventional and complex at the same time. He pays attention to detail and you become completely immersed into the storyline from the very start. I wanted to know the hows and whys and was happily rewarded at the conclusion. I was very pleasantly surprised and had that huge 'aha' moment when all was said and done!
This book has the mystery to keep you on edge. The romance and passion to keep you interested and the unique premise to keep you fully engaged.
Truly a story like no other. One that has stayed with me and forced me to reread immediately just to fully comprehend what had just transpired. In truth, I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed a thing. Every word is to be savored.
I'm thrilled to tell you that Violets & Violence is a bit of a mindf**k that made me smile happily. This book is well worth your time and deserves a huge 5 stars.
Violets and Violence is a cleverly crafted and passionately written unique love story. Violet is a magician; an illusionist, a woman with mystery flowing through her blood. She meets Carter when he is chosen from the crowd to assist her on stage. Her beguiling, sexy and playful ways soon cast a spell and Carter is unable to rid Violet from his mind.
They cross paths again, and yet again, each of them seemingly drawn to one another. But Violet’s life isn’t one without complications, one of those being Luke… her partner. Another complication is a person from their past… disgruntled, angry, and seeking revenge.
I don’t want to say any more in relation to the premise, because trying to predict what was to unfold at every twist and turn was one of the things I absolutely adored about this book. Morgan Parker very cleverly gave you just enough information where it was needed without giving anything away.
I think he’s sneaky like that. ;)
He laid each puzzle piece down perfectly, crafting a beautifully unique vision that is Violets & Violence. And I loved that. I loved seeing this book come together one puzzle piece at a time.
A few passages and quotes stood out to me. This one in particular because it was such a beautiful way for the character Luke to show he had been thinking of Violet:
“I closed my eyes and listened, hearing the wind pushing through the leaves. But I also felt it rolling through my soul. I felt the sun slipping over the western horizon, the same sun that I had kissed good morning earlier today, in London, before sending it to this end of the world so it might wake up with Violet and watch over her throughout the day. And now, in the early dusk silence, I was sending it back to the other end of the world, like a game of tennis, except this ball was one of poetic fire.”
Okay, so sure, he could’ve just said “Even though I was miles away I missed her. She was in my thoughts.” But isn’t the former SO much better? Not only do you feel Luke’s devotion in that initial passage, Morgan allows you to see it as well. I love great ‘showing’ in writing, and Morgan does it better than most.
Another was: “Magic happens in life’s seams, the tiny space, like this, that exists between the moments that count.” It’s one of those lines you can read effortlessly, yet the impact is far from simple. It resonates. Sticks. I adore those thought provoking lines.
And finally, I loved this: “She could kill me with a smile in one breath, and then bring me back to life with the most innocent of kisses in the next.” Even though it was just a euphemism on Luke’s part, I could so vividly see Violet doing this to him. That’s how perfect this statement was, and how much of an impact it made on me.
So did I enjoy Violets & Violence? Hell yes! It was unique, beautiful, exceptionally well written, thought provoking, and it kept me on my bloody toes. Not many books can do that.
