Warning:::: This book has multiple triggers for many because it has plenty of violence. DO NOT read if this is not your thing.
I really wanted to read this book as soon as I seen this was available on the multi author page because I had never read anything like it before. I was really interested in reading about a m/m stockholm syndrome story that involved a cop and a villian. Boy, was I in for a treat! This had a little bit of everything for me and I was completely knocked off my chair during certain parts.
I was drawn into this story right away with what happened since Kuon was kidnapped. I couldn’t help it. I had to figure out what would happen between these two. I read this book all in one go. The way the story unfolded was brilliant because I was right along with the characters. I felt what Kuon was feeling. I was so emotional while reading this. I pretty much cried most of the time reading this because it was so dark. But, what did I expect when I enter into a dark world? Well you bring the damn tissues, that’s what you do.
I feel like this was wrote beautifully, but I have a love and hate relationship with the story. I wish it would have ended differently but when your in a dark world and you don’t know certain things you normally would in the regular world… you make decisions based on what you think you know. You make decisions off of the temporary pain that you have and make it a permanent solution. Yugo and Kuon kill each other softly throughout the whole book. This is a twisted romance and not everything is as it seems.
I would love to find out more in the next book because I know that the story isn’t over. This may be a dark world that these characters live in, but some of them are more shady than others and I want to figure out their motives. I am also wondering what Yugo will do when he finds out what they have done as well. Betraying him is not something I would want to do.
