I vow. I crave. I give in.
I used to be a nice, normal girl. I had dreams. Good, happy dreams of a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and a fairytale love that lasts forever. Nobody ever warned me that sometimes, the prince dies three weeks before the wedding.
Like any addict, I swear this time is the last….
Now, I go through my days, a shadow of my former self. I pretend I’m okay, and the people in my life pretend to believe me. But, sometimes, when I can no longer stand the craving, I roam an underground sex club looking for my next hit. It’s dirty and wrong, but I can’t stop, and my only line of defense between them and me, is the rules I’ve designed to keep me safe. The men always abide by my rules. Until I meet him.
And, like any addict, I’m wrong.
I don’t question the instincts that tell me to run. One look at him, standing there, power radiating off him in waves, tells me all I need to know. He will make me crave those happy dreams I’ve left behind. And that is not an option.
When I picked this book I wasn’t really sure what I was getting into, and all I can say now is… Oh, my!
Layla has suffered an enormous trauma and lost the man she loved. I can’t even begin to imagine how that feels, the pain one has to go through… I only know that the psychological repercussions must be really deep and her story left me feeling sad, with a mixture of sudden emotional bursts and heartache. I can’t say for sure that I understand her “fix” because I’ve never gone through such a loss. However, she seems to find a sort of anchor in Micheal. Unfortunately, I couldn’t relate much to her because on occasions she acted like a spoiled brat who had throwing fits whenever she didn’t get what she wanted, but ended up doing what she was told anyway.
Although reading about the shocking events—even if not fully explained—really shook me emotionally , this book didn’t work for me as well as I hoped. Shame, because Dawson’s writing has a real potential.
