YOU LOVED ME AT MY DARKEST BY EVIE HARPER
When we saw this book up for an ARC we thought that sounds really good we have to review it, we were really excited to give it a read considering it’s not normally our style but we really like dark reads.
Sash and Lily are country girls who decide after 3 years of looking after the wheat farm in Australia after their parents died that they would take a break and explore the world, they set off to their first destination which was new York, on the last night there the girls decided to go out on the town to a rave when they were leaving the girls were kidnapped by some men that work in the illegal sex slave trafficking scene. Sash was to become a slave a lily was to become part of the “collection”….
Lily starts to become very friendly and start falling for her guard Jake and he in return starts to fall for Lily but there is no way he can help her escape he has worked hard for the past 4 years to try and become one of the main guards at Marcos house, he never intended to fall for Lily.
Lily is a beautiful and very feisty women she has fire in her eyes and a mouth that could get her in a lot of trouble if she isn’t careful, that’s one of the things Jake loves about Lily.
In the meantime lily helps plan the escape for her sister Sasha without Jake knowing, this part of the book is a real tear jerker and I don’t want to go into too much detail other then this is a great read, evil does get what it deserves.
We felt every part of the emotions in the book we were right there in the moment and we could relate to how Lily would move heaven and earth and even kill to protect your own family.
Jake is truly amazing the way he fought for his sister and the things he endured but he never gave up he continued until the end.
“Now all I have is a swollen heart that on most days almost explodes with the love I possess for this women”
“You loved me at my darkest, baby, just wait til you see me at my best”
“As much as I want to fall back into bed and hide away from the world, I’m not going to give Marco or anyone else the power to destroy me. It’s my time to be brave. I might still cry and I might still fall, but at the end of all this, I will be free and I will bring them all to their knees.”
“I can’t take that chance, Jake. What if some sick assehole gets to her, and I have no idea where he takes her. It could take me years if ever to find. And that is when or if I ever get away from her”
“She’s the fire, and I am a stupid motherfucking moth who wants what I can’t have. And what I can’t have is Lily Morgan.”
This book is amazing it’s a great dark romance and we loved every moment of it, it kept you wondering with suspense where you would be thinking something and you were totally off the mark and something else unexpected happened!! It kept you intrigued with the book and the characters we really didn’t want to put the book down even when we had tears pouring down our face!!
This is the first book we have read by Evie Harper and we look forward to reading more of her work her writing is amazing and even better that she is an Aussie!!
