This book is about high school student Lake and a boy she both fears and wants, Keiran. Lake has been bullied by Keiran all her life, ever since he pushed her from the monkey bars as children. I’m a little on the fence with this book, it is dark and twisted but also sexy as hell so it’s not for the faint hearted. Keiran is horrible to Lake, and sometimes it’s too horrible for my personal tastes, but yet I couldn’t put the book down. There are several secrets and misunderstandings which keep the story going and it does end in a cliff-hanger of sorts.
Keiran is twisted, he’s had a warped upbringing and as a result he’s done horrific things. He’s not a prince charming; he’s not even nice so if that’s what you’re after you’re in the wrong place. He doesn’t give much away for most of the book, so we have no idea why he picks on her and tries to break her repeatedly.
Parts of the story are unbelievable (where the heck are all the responsible adults?!) and far stretched, but the chemistry is undeniable. The heat literally sizzles off the pages. I think if you like dark reads then this is good read, but if you’re squeamish then I’d probably avoid it.
