Geez Louise what the hell was that! Seriously that ending had me screaming WTF!! I really can't believe it and I'm actually shocked to the core with this one. This book has had my head spinning from the moment I read the prologue and first chapter. We are introduced to Adam Jacobs and he's lust or more like need for blood. You can say he is somewhat like a vampire in that the thought of blood sends him into a frenzy but what's worse is that this book is not paranormal. The characters are as raw and real and as human as they come, which scares the shit out of me. I was thinking to myself "what the hell did I get myself into." It really wasn't what I expected, but at the same time I could not stop reading it.

This book is freaky and creepy, and raw and honest, and captivating and enthralling. I felt like a possessed women trying to work my way through the pages, and I felt conflicted. I mean you know the truth about Adam while you are reading but you can't help yourself being drawn into him and his world. You can't help but feel sorry for him and want him to be good, but deep down you know he is the monster he claims to be. And then you shudder to think that maybe there is the chance he is not, that what he feels and does can be healed but then the bad in him wins...can you see why I was conflicted?

The moment that Adam feels good or worthy about himself is because of Ellory. Oh man this girl is so much fun. She is not the good girl that gets swept up by the bad boy. She is the bad girl who sneaks out at night, gets drunk, hooks up with other people's boyfriends and finds herself brawling any time she can. She is sass mouthed and takes no shit from anyone...she is a breath of fresh air. I really admire her ability to be who she is and not change for no one, not even a guy. And for the first time in both their lives they find a connection with someone who is good for them instead of harming them. They find that with each other for differing reasons. For Adam, it's to keep the monster hidden in a cell and for Ellory, it's to learn to trust and let someone in. It's so weird but beautiful and the same time.

Eventually, Adam's monster gets the better of him and Ellory soon finds out the dangerous side to him. But the remarkable thing about that is that she is not freaked or scared of him...seriously if this was me I would be running the other way! Instead, she accepts this because she loves him and knows he can be a better man than that. So, as soon as she confronts Adam about this, so much goes down and before you know it we are at the end of the book where we are left with one MOTHER OF A CLIFFHANGER! Oh dear Lord in heaven, what the hell just happened and why oh why are we left hanging over the edge like that. Seriously I need book 2 now! Lauren Hammond, is a brilliant writer who takes a risk in her writing and it pays off big time...you have me hooked!

“For a moment, I’m captivated. He’s seducing me with his eyes. A nervous flutter swims through my stomach. I can feel my heartbeat in my throat. Pounding. Constricting. I swallow hard.”
Lauren Hammond, A Whisper To A Scream

Lauren Hammond
“Maybe I’m stupid. Maybe I’m just as evil as he is by keeping my mouth shut. But he told me once that I was different. And I can’t help but hope that me being different is the one thing in this world that can save him from what he fears the most…Himself.”

Reem Hardan O.k I just finished reading it, and i'm soooooo confused about my feelings for this one, I mean I love Ellory (obviously), I like Adam when he's around Ellory, but I'm still not sure about him, he still gives me the creep espically after he kidnapped Katie (not that she doesn't deserve it)..but great book, thnx for telling to go with it .


Sylvia Oh you're welcome and I totally understand how you are conflicted cause that's how I totally felt too but what about that cliffhanger!!
