Mitchell has always made her parents proud. She
excels in everything she puts her mind to, and because of her intelligence, has
warranted herself a top notch education at Kentucky State University. Though an
achievement to be proud of, Christian longs for something else.
To be accepted by her peers.
To be popular.
To be loved.
Now in her junior year of college, Christian moves from the dorm to a
house with other female students. She’s on a mission to break out of her shell,
and she’s willing to do just about anything to make it happen. When her plan
results in tragedy, Christian is
left vulnerable, and more alone than she’s ever been. She can’t tell her
family, who’d never understand, and she refuses to share what occurred with her
best friend Ethan, because of their
find what she’s desperately searching for, or will her actions have dire
consequences that can cost her so much more than she could ever imagine?
This book is not like the previous books in
this series; Christian takes a big leap into the darker side of things and
deals with some difficult and upsetting subject matters.
To be honest I wasn’t really expecting this
book to be anything but a romance, both Noah and Isabella were out and out love
stories. Christian reminded me of the original Mitchell Family series that on
occasion dealt with some darker issues.
I both enjoyed and kind of hated this book!! I
loved Ethan and Christian’s friendship and the unique bond they created. Their
relationship was heart warming and special but I think we could all also feel the
underlying sexual connection they had.
On the flip side this book is also harrowing
and disturbing, I feel like a warning is required and although this is a
massive spoiler this book has a very descriptive rape scene which is
traumatising and to be honest a little horrifying!!
This scene was unexpected in its intensity and
to be truthful made me uncomfortable to a point where I considered stopping
reading. What then followed and the way things were dealt with and how she was treated way just appalling!!!
This is definitely not a happy go lucky love
story, its harsh and brutal and really highlights that sometimes humans are
horrible, mean awful entities.
God the attacker is terrifying, charming
one minute and then pure evil the next!!
I feel like I need to assure readers that this
book does have a happy ending but for me someone needed to get his comeuppance
a bit sooner and preferably by having his dick cut off!!!
This book was hard to read but I’m actually now
really looking forward to the next few books in this series. Christian gets 4
stars from me.
As the title of my blog gives away I read a lot!!! I love the escapism of a good book and sometimes I even enjoy the release I get from moaning about a rubbish book.
Im not sure anyone will ever read my reviews but I'm going to do them anyway.... sometimes I read so much and so quickly that I can completely forget what ive read or the reasons I loved them so this way I can gain a little perspective.
I have a facebook page and I would love it if anyone who reads any of my reviews pops over to FB and gives me a quick like.
Also im constantly looking for recommendations so if you've read something you think I would enjoy please comment and let me know.
