I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I was really excited to read this book. I didn’t read the blurb, but I loved the cover and was intrigued. Plus Bannister is a trusted author, I know whatever she writes will be unique and refreshing. I am delighted to say I was not disappointed.
“I’m not giving up on you.”
“I know,” I said, tears stinging my eyes. “That’s’ why I’m giving up on you.”
Sarah was a dark character. She was broken and beat down by life. She was, however, determined to change her situation, to improve herself. Her darkness is deep-rooted and hard to escape. It’s for this reason that when she meets Kyle she is reluctant to let herself feel anything for him. She doesn’t feel that she deserves it. Kyle is a genuinely good person, and she can’t comprehend how he could care for her. I loved their relationship, and how it grew slowly, and how the reader is able to see that Kyle’s intentions are pure, even though Sarah refuses to think she deserves anything good in her life.
There are a lot of rough moments in the book. Some very bad things have happened to Sarah, and continue to happen to her. Bannister handles these scenes perfectly. I found myself reading at a furious pace, desperate to know the outcome. The writing was so fluid that I lost track of time. I absolutely loved reading Kyle’s POV. I think he may have made my heart ache more than Sarah.
I really can’t recommend this book enough. It is dark and unique, and unlike anything I’ve read before. I cannot wait to read more of this authors writing.
5 stars and a bottle of dark red wine! Enjoy!
