Perfect for readers of Colleen Hoover, Jay Crownover, and K. A. Tucker, the first novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy kicks off an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.
A long time ago, when I was fifteen and a completely different person, I saved a girl’s life. I spent only a handful of hours with her, but somehow, we connected—and I’ve never been the same. No one understands what we went through. No one knows what it’s like to be us. We survived, yet I don’t feel like I’m really living—until now. Eight years later, I find her. I want to make her mine. I need to make her mine. But she’ll hate me forever when she finds out who I really am.
This was a pretty intense read. However, I felt like it was a little drawn out, and mildly frustrating. (And to some degree farfetched.) Her interaction with him in the “past” was over a short period of time, which made it hard for me to believe that the “love” was genuine. But, that’s just me.
Considering the themes and circumstances surrounding the characters in this book, I was able to overlook some irritating aspects/behaviors, thus allowing me to approach the story with a more subjective perspective.
I liked how the premise of the story was unlike most of the books I typically read in the contemporary romance genre; I was eager to see how the romance between the two characters would play out.
I’m curious to see how the story continues in the next book!
