“My beautiful little angel.”
Those words cemented the day my world changed. I was painted in shades of brutality and sketched into an impeccable design of what he wanted.
Reborn in pain and doused in cruelty, I returned to my hometown after two years—the place that had me running.
But everything had changed, I had changed.
Thrust back into a world of money, status and secret societies with danger lurking around every corner, I tried to navigate my studies at the prestigious Coldharbour University.
Once upon a time, they were my best friends—Hollis, Texas and Preston.
They’re no longer boys I grew up with. Now, they regard me with contempt, and make no show to hide it.
Survival became all I know, I’ll do whatever it takes to grasp a sliver of normality. Even if it meant separating my realities.
Hollis, Texas and Preston had their secrets, as did I. Until the beginning of mine started to unravel, sweeping us all in its destruction and annihilating the relationship we’d rebuilt between us.
Not everything was what it seemed. They fed into the lies and lived by their version of it, but when the truth emerged, they finally understood that betrayal lurked closer than they’d imagined.
East Bay was riddled with an undercurrent of evil. And they were about to realise just how deeply it ran.
I belonged to them heart, body and soul. But my heart also beats for someone else.
And the thing about secrets… they always come to light.
4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
This book is DARK and I loved every second of it! The darker they are the better they are. I mean, when stuff happens that are so messed up in a book that the triggers are a pretty big WARNING, then the more I want to read it.
I feel like there is more twists and turns, drama, kills, secrets to unfold and just so much all around that will have your head spinning like bettlejuice!
There was nothing light and fluffy about this book, but I certainly did like the Heroine because even though she knew she would get her punishments, she still went and did as she pleased knowing the consequences. Her childhood friends hated her not knowing why she up and left when she did and she was unable to give them a reason why. She lost them even though she loved them.
When everything unfolded at the end, boy did it almost make me fall off my chair because so much came out to light that I certainly wasn't expecting and it made the book that much more interesting!
IF YOU LIKE DARK, I WOULD RECOMMEND!
