You meet someone. You date. You fall in love. You marry. The four simple rules of love…. Wrong! I’m getting married but I’d never met him before now, never dated him, never fell in love. I have no access to the memories of the most magical time of anyone’s life. My mind won’t allow me to evoke the past, I can’t remember those simple stages to lead me to the fourth .
I can’t comprehend why I would have ever wanted to marry someone like Dante. I should never have passed the first stage, although, I may have seen him through the eyes of the woman I once was, this me that lives, breathes here now, can’t understand how we made it to the next stage. I’m not sure, without memories, how I know that this voice inside me, telling me I would never have chosen him, speaks some truth, I just know. He’s controlling, arrogant, callous and violent, and utterly hell bent on humiliating and degrading me – Like watching me falter, watching me struggle to comply and be the woman he asked to marry, powers him- as though he wants to break me piece by piece. Fiber by fiber. Until all that’s here is the shell he created from a soul that I once owned.
Now my memories are slowly returning. And they show me a completely different side to meeting him. Our dates, falling in love. The Dante haunting me in the shadows of my mind is loving, gentle and utterly enamored with me, nothing like the man with me now. And this is what taunts me. My tender lover turned into a debauched, cruel sadist who is determined to consume my life, destroy my mind and murder my spirit.
I am, Star, and just like with some stars in the sky, the light you see is an echo, a façade, I am already gone I am a no one. Especially to him. To him I am the dark in his desires, the corrupt in his depravity. The sin in his immorality
There are no spoilers in this review. You guys know I don't do spoilers. I don't think there is anything I could tell you about this amazing book without giving anything away.
I will give you this -
You meet someone. You date. You fall in love. You marry.
The four simple rules of love….
The four simple rules of love….
Except is this true?
This book had me upside down, inside out and wrong way round. I felt like I was twirling round the whole time. Then just as you think you have it..... Bam.... It knocks you on your ass. So you think WHAT!!!
I read this book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. From the First page it enthralled me. It played out like a movie inside my head. The Characters effortlessly fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw, some you think shouldn't fit, but in a strange way they do. I couldn't honestly say which part if any of the book I liked. The whole book was mesmerising.
Ker Dukey and D H Sidebottom are a fantastic partnership in this book. I CANT WAIT for the next book .
I do need to warn you. Once you start this book - YOU WILL NOT want to put it down, so make sure you have all the usual supplies. You are going to need them.
This book gets 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments
