I'd seen a lot of talk about this book over the last few months but I wasn't convinced I'd like a book set in the "underworld" unless it was actually, you know, the
underworld, as in waving hello to Hades underworld.
I had all these pre-conceived notions of what the book would probably be like - seedy semi-criminal stuff - because I'm a freakin' idiot!
I didn't get the whole "underworld" fighting thing... Now I do. oops
I put the book out of my head and went about my merry business, but it kept creeping back onto my radar.
I read some reviews and thought "what the heck" and purchased it on Kindle. But still, I did not read it. I kept putting it off.
Then one night - ok a couple of evenings ago - I was bored. I was restless. I didn't know what I wanted to read and I swear a little voice was screaming Remy in my ear, telling me I was missing out, begging me to give in, to give it a go, to fall in love with Remington Tate. So I opened the book and started reading....
I don't think I can put into words how this book affected me. I was entranced from the minute Remy chased down Brooke, demanded her name and kissed his name onto her lips. *shivers*
The chemistry between Remy and Brooke burns up the pages, honestly it's insane... Sucks you right in.
Remy is a complete caveman when it comes to his woman. Animalistic. He seems to work on absolute basic instinct. To claim, to provide, to protect... It could have been a complete disaster but, for me, it just worked. He isn't an asshole and Brooke isn't a weak little woman. She kicks ass! Seriously, she is a kick ass female who knows what she wants and what she wants is her man. (And so do I!!)
When I finished it, I felt kinda euphoric.
Was it a perfect book? Beautifully written, expertly edited and polished? No. However, it was part of what made it work for me. It felt raw
. It had grit and rough edges and it just worked with the story.
I loved this book, Love, LOVE, LOVED it! It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea but it was definitely mine and I can't wait for the next instalment.
