REVIEW BY: LEEANN
So this book starts off a bit slow & ends with a cliff hanger. Which of course means I am now waiting for book 2 to see what happens!!
Initially it comes across as a story about 2 people that just have a lots of sex.. and they do, but as the story picks up pace and builds momentum the story of Nathan & Delilah starts to get interesting & intriguing.
Nathan has big secrets and the scars to prove it. He can’t work out what it is about Delilah that has him coming back for more, but he just can’t help himself.
Delilah had a shocking childhood & is slowly recovering from it. She thinks Nathan is helping her. She just wants him to let her in & tell her about his past.
These 2 struggle with their past’s and neither of them feel they have a future to look forward to. Just when they start to consider the possibility things change & everything spirals out of control. Things happen that can’t be changed … And now I am waiting for book 2 to see what they do next!!
The characters take a while to come into themselves in this book but once they do it becomes interesting. Delilah learns to stand up for what she wants until she realises it doesn’t change anything & Nathan learns to smile and have hope.
This is a very sad story that at times has very little hope of a happy ending. Just when you think Nathan & Delilah get on the same page something changes & they take about 10 steps backwards in their relationship.
As I said, it starts off slow but is well worth hanging in there and reading on as it does get more interesting as the story progresses.
