Warning: This is not your typical romance. The story of Abby & Jake contains disturbing situations, graphic violence, sex, strong language, drug use, and all types of abuse.
Abby has been through hell and has survived one of the most brutal childhoods imaginable...barely.
To the outside world she is just a loner with an attitude.
When her grandmother dies in a tragic explosion, Abby is left with questions-and nothing else.
Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, she meets Jake, a tattooed blue-eyed biker with secrets that rival her own.
Two broken souls that can't be healed. They can't be saved.
Abby & Jake have to decide if they can accept the darkness not only within one another, but within themselves.
If they can accept each other for who they really are, they might be able to learn that love isn't always found in the light.
A revenge kill is the best kind of kill.But a revenge kill for your family, with your woman's permission? That's borderline erotic.
Is it wrong to be completely turned upside down and turned on by that? Yea. This book has made an utter mess of me and I'm one happy girl because of it.
Sick, twisted Abby was in love with the sick, twisted, beautiful Jake.
Signs that I just read a kick-ass book:
- As soon as I finished, I wanted to re-read all over again.
- I have a TON of highlights, reminding me of why I couldn’t put this book down.
- It’s been hours since I finished, but I’m still re-playing my favorite scenes in my head.
- This was unique, and completely fucked up, but it somehow burrowed into my skin and left a lasting impression.
- Sigh… I feel a book funk coming…
I fell asleep that night in the arms of a killer. I’d never slept better.
This story was not an easy read. My emotions were all over the place. Just when I was beginning to breathe and feel happy, the next minute it felt like someone punched me really fucking hard. What. The. Fuck?! I seriously couldn’t breathe for most of this book.
It was the best pain I’d ever felt. We were just us. Broken and bruised. Fucked up and messy. And together we were everything we never thought we could be. We didn’t need sweet and gentle. I didn’t need to be coddled. I needed Jake, and he gave himself to me just as I gave myself to him.”
Abby and Jake are two very broken characters. As a matter of fact, they were probably two of the most fucked up characters I’ve ever encountered. I can’t even begin to dive into their individual issues, but just know that they have been through aLOT of fuckedupness and one thing is for certain, these two are survivors. They were brought together when they were at their most vulnerable.
“Why do I want to touch you? Are you fucking kidding me right now? I want to help you. I want to hold you. I want to make it all okay for you. I want to fucking touch you because you are the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen, and I can’t imagine never being able to hold your hand or kiss you.” I thought that was everything, but then he added, “And yes – I want tofuck you, too, like I’ve never wanted anything in my whole life.”
I can’t really pinpoint what it was about this story that made the biggest impact. Maybe it was the culmination of various things that made this story memorable. I loved Jake’s character – the killer and the protective nature in him made him who he was; he owned his identity and I loved him more for it. As for Abby, I admired her strength and willingness to move forward. Redemption was a key theme in this book. It was prevalent in both the H/h, but the one that shocked me and made me cry was for Jake’s father, Frank. I so did not see that coming. But anyway, I digress. Just know that this was dark, twisted and completely out of the box…LOVED it.
