The most important thing I’d ever read was scribbled on the door of a portable restroom, engraved into plastic at a carnival on the outskirts of Boston.
Lust lingers, love stays.
Lust is impatient, love waits.
Lust burns, love warms.
Lust destroys, but love? Love kills.
Maybe it was always my destiny to fall in love with a monster.
When other kids stayed awake at night fearing the pointy-toothed beast hiding in their closet, I longed to see mine.
I wanted to feed it, domesticate it, understand it.
Sam and I were only allowed to love each other in the dark.
Once our story unfolded, and the truth came to light, I was the one to cut the cord.
My name is Aisling Fitzpatrick, and I have a confession to make.
Sam Brennan is not the only monster in this story.
5 Heart Review by Lorena
This book....this book was everything I was hoping it would be and more!
I have been waiting to get Aisling's book for the longest and even though I loved her brother's stories, I think I love hers more. She was such a strong heroine and her "no holds bar" attitude really had me rooting for her all the way. She didn't hold back, she went after what she wanted and she wanted Sam bad. She has been in love with this man for practically 10 years now and she groomed herself well for him, to seduce him, to make him fall in love with her.
Sam is a damaged soul. You could say that his childhood wasn't all flowers and roses with the type of mother he had, but he had a good upbringing when things shifted for him but the ugliness was still inside him. But I could say that he wasn't the only monster in this story, Aisling was a little monster herself so why couldn't they make things work between them?
There were things that kept them at arms length and even though they had explosive chemistry and their sex was off the charts, they still had to be under wraps for certain reasons.
I was hooked from the beginning and did not move from my chair until I finished. That's how much this book had me hooked!
