He was my foster brother. He swore to protect me.He failed.They all failed.I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.He answers to Sicko.
“Heaven won’t take me, and Hell won’t welcome my demons back. I’ll be left in purgatory again, only this time for real.”
I’ve been pondering my review for about a day or two now.
This book isn’t something you can just read and walk away. It sits with you and simmers for days. The story isn’t a light read, and it includes some of Amo’s best work to date. I have come to regard her writing as the “gold standard” for dark dark romance. She can dive into this area, and not just nail ever aspect, but also make it so you walk away knowing that you were in the trenches with her and survived.
This is an experience.
A story of survival, losing, wining, love, and the undeniable truth that fate is everything.
One of the year’s best books by far. Do not miss it.
