Synopsis

I am loyal, but I will betray you.
I am strong, but I have scars.
I am an angel, but the devil.
I met her when I was sixteen and she was a breath of fresh air. She swooped in, making me smile. But then she left, taking my next breath with her.
Her smile could light up a room, making my black heart pitter patter.
I found her again ten years later, with a syringe in her arm.
Blood coming from between her legs.
She was broken and I was glad she was broken. She wouldn’t think less of me and my damaged ways.

My Review

Firstly love the cover and as reading through I could so picture Black come to life from the pages.

What I loved was the way these two characters emotions fed off each other, the storyline was really easy to follow, backgrounds from Liam and Rose when they first meet and their ongoing friendship given at the right moments to help you connect and then also great supporting characters who played their parts in their lives.   Black is definitely twisted to a degree and he has so many secrets and is truly a bit stalker like with Rose but she is so fragile and I really relished how we got to see her repair her life from the ground up because lets be honest she was in a dark place and then right up to the end even with all the heartache and drama thrown her way.   This is a dark read, it has death, drug use, prostitution and some hard to read violent scenes but all within relevance to how the story progresses.

Again, TL manages to twist and turn the story to have you believing you know the ending to only throw you towards another conclusion.  I was well and truly wrapping this story up in a nice little bow thinking I had outsmarted the author and slap me down we are given a hint of perhaps new beginnings – this is so typical of TL’s writing and why I know every time I pick up one of her books I will enjoy it and wonder what she is going to throw at me the reader.  This is my third book I have read by the author and again cannot fault her story, characters or the way it is told.
