Dusty is difficult read, heavy on angst, I needed breaks to finish it, it broke my heart but it was so worth it! It is unforgettable story, definitely a must-read!

This story is nothing like Twilight. Besides the fact that characters are called Bella and Edward and they live in Forks, EVERYTHING is different. This story is not for faint-hearted so be prepared for a depressive read.

Bella and Edward went from friendship, through secret young love to obsessive teenage love. Dusty is about the strong
When I started reading this book I knew what was I getting myself into only by number of pages. yep 1700 pages.... I mean WTF?! But I read them all. I did skim in the beginning because their childhood was stretched for 30% and I was bored as hell during that part but then... then I got hooked when the CRAZY began.

Do you have any idea how I feel about this book?!

It's just me Shelly B

"Our love is not perfect. Our love is f*cked up and bleeding, but it's the most precious thing in my entire life. I treat it like shit, but it is what it is, and neither one of us is powerful enough to walk away from it like we should."

This book is about obsession........two people so obsessed with each other that they ruin EVERYthing and EVERYone they come in contact with.

They've been doing it for years and years.......LIES upon LIES......

This book is CRAZY!!!!! CRAZY good....CRAZY bad...CRAZY

Its about Isabella and Edwards love...

Love is so fucking corrupt.

Love is lying and tricking. Love is hard work. Love is suffocating and using. It’s head-fucking and soul-ruining. It’s apprehensive and back-stabbing. It’s passionate. It’s chilling. It’s smile-

Love feels like triangles and sunrays.
It feels like a good cry and the best chocolate ever. It’s a tightness in your chest and an extra beat in your heart. Love is completeness---sappiness. Hopelessness.

"Love is draining, skeptical, relentless, tempting, concealed but it is concrete, effortful, strong, unending, sweet-everything and permanently-bound, never saying goodbye, forgiving and unconditional, mean, hurts, relentless, corrupt, reassuring, brave, perfect, forgives but doesn't forget, love is what we make it, love is loving you with my whole heart."

When you finish a book that has a little over 1,000 pages and you still want to, need to, have to read more, you know you just read something fucking amazing. There are very few books that have affected me as deeply as Dusty has. It was so good, I am this close to just rereading it instead of starting something new.

I’m going 4.5 with a no doubt about which was to swing the stars. I thought the length was a tad long and affected part of my enjoyment 3/4 of the way through being 1140 kindle pages in length. That said by the end of the book I could have eaten another 100 pages about these two and their friends easily!

I usually don’t like giving up more than the blurb but the blurb really tells you nothing about the story but I have to give you something so here I go. I’d like to say this is the story of Edwa

A book like this is the hardest to write a review for. As persuasive as I can be I could never come up with words to convey how much you should really read this book. I'm not poetic enough to describe the beauty of the writing and most importantly (I'm actually crying right now) there are not enough words in the dictionary to describe the way this book made me feel. I would feel like a bad person to not say something about it though... To at least try.

I've put off reading this story for such a long time, mainly because of the reviews I'd seen of total and utter heart break and devastation....and who needs that when they get in to bed and pick up a book right? Well, that was until a lovely pervy friend of mine and a very kinky mistress convinced me I just had to go for it....and so I did.

This came across my GR feed recently. With RPattz on its cover and with a Twilight fanfic tag, I didn't even bother marking this as "want-to-read". But days later, with a massive Thief-induced book funk, a friend mentioned reading this and that it was "so good." I so needed "so good" to help get Thief out of my mind. But this turned out to be more than the cure I needed. This one just blew me away.

About 7 months ago I entered the Twilight zone, it's funny that I can legitimately call it that; where writers take the work of Stephanie Myers and create alternatives to her well documented Twilight Saga, a zone commonly called Twilight Fan Fiction (Twific). Not being, at all, a big fan of the books (the writing is mediocre at best) I was surprised just how much I enjoyed playing around in this new fiction genre. Very early on in my discovery I was pointed to as being the most co ...more

Review to come! When I figure out how to put into words these emotions!

Ok after a while later. I have come to terms that I will never be able to write a review that would do this book justice.

All I can say is DO NOT let how long this book is judge you to not read. It you will not regret every word on every page. After you have read the 1000+ pages you will still be eager for more.

Love is loving this book weeks after you read it.

Our love is not perfect. Our love is fucked up and bleeding, but it's the most precious thing in my entire life.

I'm speechless and stunned. By the reviews I've read, I knew that this was gonna be good. But shit, it was amazing! I enjoyed every single second I got to spend with Dusty and Bliss. This truly is a masterpiece and sush a powerful read. From the innocents of banana popsticles and first loves and endless summers to hurt and pain in adulthood, and her..
Bliss and Dusty are one the same,

This story blew my ever-loving mind.

This kind of surprising, emotionally epic story only comes around once in a great while (or for me, as a Twilight fan, and bringing all the resonance of that experience to the reading chair with me, maybe just once, ever). Beyond the themes of young love, true love, etc., which are favorites for me and gorgeously depicted here, there is an important secondary narrative about the subtle and ultimately devastating dynamics of addiction. Yet this story never fel

From the very first moment, all clear sandals and soft curls, all shy smiles in the hallway on her first day, and I sounded like such an idiot when I tried to talk to her, because somewhere inside I knew then.

One of the best and favorite books I've read this year. Overwhelmingly beautiful story about a Never-Ending Love.

Alice became Bella's best friend and Edward became her love, her secret, her addiction...

This book is not for die hard romantics you won’t get any of that from this book. You will get hard, real life pain and heartbreaking destruction in these pages. This book is about the most pure form of innocent love, childhood love. Loving the boy she grew up with, her best friend’s brother. Only it went wrong they kept it a secret, they hurt each other and used love as the excuse. And then “SHE” came along… cocaine…“SHE” took E

From this, I will never recover. Ever.

5 stars seems like an insult to this fire cracker. It totally consumed my life for 2, delightful, traumatic weeks, and left me gagging and gasping for more.

This is the story of Bella Bliss and Dusty. They meet as children and mature into a twisted life of love, lust, deceit, lies, abuse and addiction.

Bliss is naive, 2 years younger than Dusty, and the daughter of the Chief of Police, Charlie Swan. She is sheltered, loved, protected, tows the line and live

So, I went into this with no all honesty, I wanted to read it because Rob P. was on the cover, and I wanted a little Edward Cullen fix. I have never read any fan fiction before, and had no idea what this would be. I can honestly say that this was the most heartfelt, emotional, gut-wrenching and beautiful book I have read in a long time. It is 20 hours long (based on my kindle reading rate) and I have literally read it non stop, every spare second, and couldn't get enough.
