As soon as I read the synopsis I knew I had to read this book and then when the author released the beautiful cover, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Tell me I can have crazy, dark and twisted wrapped in a pretty package and I am in. So this is where I am a little torn on this book. It was twisted and the story was definitely a unique one, which I really liked, but to me it didn’t hold all the dark elements I was hoping for going in. It was a good read, just not as dark and twisty as I had been craving. I will say though without trying to give anything away, the author did leave me with high hopes for the next book with the sneak peek we got.
Emma has had a shitty life thus far, let’s just say her Mother is a dead ringer for last place in the mother of the year awards. So when her Mom ropes in a new unassuming husband, Emma gets a chance to start fresh at a small college where no one knows her and her dark past. What she didn’t expect was to run into her half dressed hot as hell new stepbrother one night and notice the same darkness in his eyes that she knows is in hers.
“Maybe this whole time I should’ve been looking for someone as fucked up as me. Maybe two broken pieces can be glued together to make a whole.”
Church is a mystery to everyone who crosses his path, he’s the sexy silent type. He literally doesn’t talk to anyone unless he absolutely has too, yet he finds himself talking to his new stepsister Emma. No matter how much he tries to stay away from her, he just can’t. She seems to understand the darkness inside of him like no one ever has, and she accepts it. I struggled with Emma’s character a little bit because she was so obsessive and just couldn’t think for herself. Though I guess that was part of the appeal that went along with what Church needed. Now Church, well he was dark and broody and sexy. But I think I liked him more when he didn’t talk, it added to the whole mystery.
“I chose to stop talking because there was never anyone worth talking to, and I don’t speak now because it would be dangerous if I did. And they call me Church because yes, I should be worshiped.”
Emma and Church are two broken people who find what they need in each other. They have this crazy and I mean CRAZY type of love. They complement each other’s darkness and crave the madness that it brings. But is love worth killing for? If you are in the mood for a unique story then definitely check this one out!
