75 5Dark, twisted, sick, but not romantic whatsoever.
It was obvious that this story was dark I can t argue with that But I ve read something darker already and they were far better than this one There were some disturbing scenes for me, but then again, they didn t make me cringe or shudder the way other books I ve read in the same genre did.
The major problem I had with this book was that I couldn t connect to both main characters, Sinclair and Stella, especially Stella Of course, I know she s strong and brave, and I admired her for that But aside from her bravery, I don t think there s much else I can say or think of her.
And well, what to say about Sinclair He s vicious, malicious, sick, and disgusting He s become one of the most hated characters I ve ever come across with Whatever he s done to Stella, he 3.

F I had a bad feeling going into the book because of the the sadistic demeanor of the main male character I thought this to be some twisted Beauty the Beast, where the Beast traps Beauty using her father But, no Oh, no This is so muchthan that The man is a complete arse, but the author starts slipping every now and then what a tormented soul he is and how it s all about duty Duty my arse And branding Seriously What are women, cattle I ve had my fair share of branding with Story of O, and it was enough to last me a lifetimeCopy provided by the pub



LiveUSUKCouncellor takes the reader on a journey of depravity, suspense and drama This dark romance kept me wondering, questioning and completely engrossed in the story telling from the beginning to the very end Told in the first person and from the alternating perspective of Stella and Sinclair the story emerges through the easy flowing narrative that paints crystal clear pictures in the mind evoking feelings of angst ridden anticipation It presents a hedonistic world in the deep south of Louisiana where depraved traditions rear their ugly head every ten years, revealing people s dark proclivities and giving the rich and powerful of the community the outrageous legislation to act out their depravity and play by crazy, crazy rules The finely tuned anti hero embraces his honour bound It annoys me when a seemingly ridiculous premise for an entire series isn t even semi explained by the end of book one Plus, it seems she starts book two with Lucius Which doesn t interest me I won t be continuing.
