Two people. One incident. Interwoven between two damaged souls in ways they
"The fact I feel anything should let me know I’m headed in the wrong
direction, headed down a path of darkness, destruction, and failure. A path
that will dig out memories so painful I’ve created an entire persona to avoid
dealing with them. Yet I know—I’m going down that path headfirst no questions
asked, no matter the outcome.
I might be a monster, but I’m a selfish one."—Keller Keating
"When his strength envelops me, every wrong becomes right, every anxiety
melts away, every doubt disappears. I feel calm, safe, whole. The spark of life
that’s been missing inside burns bright, lighting me up like a solar flare,
sizzling white-hot through my veins. Keller brings me out of the darkness and into
the light."—Britton Reeves
OMG! I loved Killer. So, initially I wanted this
book to be a standalone, but I loved the characters so much that now I want
Keller (Killer) I know was supposed to seem like
a total dick, but he was in pain. He was suffering and that was the only way he
knew how to cope. His guilt overwhelmed him and I could actually feel it coming
off the pages. He hated himself so much that he would never believe he could
deserve anything as good as Britt.
Britton is one kick-ass chick!! The battle she
went through, not just with the incident, but with the recovery and her
narcissistic mother, was something not many can overcome. I was filled with
pride when reading all the things she accomplished and the other goals she set
for herself. She is a truly beautiful person inside and out.
How, you ask, is it that two opposite ends to the
spectrum collide? They both have this pull towards each other, while not really
even realizing how interwoven their lives are. Well, not realizing until
everything come crashing in and they are both left to deal with their pasts. Both
pushed it aside for their own understandable reasons, but it could now push the
two of them apart.
This book is about the victims of a tragedy; how
they cope and deal with whatever life it is they have left. Many times the victims
are forgotten about and the suspects are glorified. It drives me crazy. The way
Heather was able to capture how the victims and their families moved forward got
to me and hit me right in the feels. This book was written beautifully and I
liked Heather’s move into a little darker of a story. Absolutely Excellent!
