description So where do I begin? ๐Ÿ˜ Honestly, I haven't been this ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ผ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ณ with a debut book in a very ๐Ÿ…›๐Ÿ…ž๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…– time. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ The writing was ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ถ๐“ฎ๐“ท๐“ช๐“ต. ๐Ÿ‘ It was well paced. ๐Ÿ‘ It is quite a long book (๐Ÿ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž ๐ก๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ) but I never got ๐Ÿ…‘๐Ÿ…ž๐Ÿ…ก๐Ÿ…”๐Ÿ…“ or felt the need to skim. ๐Ÿ‘ The plot was โ‚ตโฑคโ‚ณโฑซษŽ engaging. ๐Ÿ‘€ There was Aฬฝอ“ Lฬฝอ“Oฬฝอ“Tฬฝอ“ going on in this book. ๐Ÿ™ˆ Lies โœ” Sex ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ…ฑ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†ˆ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ป ๐Ÿ˜  Cheating ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Talk of racism ๐Ÿ˜  สสŠส€ษ–ษ›ส€ ๐Ÿ”ช Drugs ๐Ÿ’Š Forgiveness ๐Ÿ’— A fight for a lฬณeฬณgฬณaฬณcฬณyฬณ ๐ŸŽค Both the plot and characters were just so ๐Ÿ…ฆ๐Ÿ…”๐Ÿ…›๐Ÿ…› ๐Ÿ…“๐Ÿ…”๐Ÿ…ฅ๐Ÿ…”๐Ÿ…›๐Ÿ…ž๐Ÿ…Ÿ๐Ÿ…”๐Ÿ…“ and intriguing. ๐Ÿ‘ You could tell the author did her homeworkโ—


Which brings me to the โ‚ตโฑงโ‚ณโฑคโ‚ณโ‚ตโ‚ฎษ†โฑคโ‚ด themselves. ๐Ÿ‘ซ As with the plot there is Aฬฝอ“ Lฬฝอ“Oฬฝอ“Tฬฝอ“ going on here with multiple different characters. ๐Ÿ’ž The main ๐“ป๐“ธ๐“ถ๐“ช๐“ท๐“ฌ๐“ฎ centers on ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ด and ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ†„๐Ÿ†‚ ๐Ÿ’‘ Both flawed. Both angry. ๐Ÿ˜  Both hurt. ๐Ÿ’” Yet both SO pโ™ฅeโ™ฅrโ™ฅfโ™ฅeโ™ฅcโ™ฅt for each other that you can't help but route for them. ๐Ÿ™Œ Along for the ride are ๐“ผ๐“ฎ๐“ฟ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ช๐“ต secondary characters. ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ค Some you'll love. ๐Ÿ’— Some you'll hate. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Some remain a mystery. โ“ A couple will feature in the next book (and I have โฑซษ†โฑคร˜ idea how this author will get me to like either of them). ๐Ÿ˜’ Last, this was all wrapped up with a satisfying ending for ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ด and ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ†„๐Ÿ†‚, but the overall story will ๐–ˆ๐–”๐–“๐–™๐–Ž๐–“๐–š๐–Š into book two. ๐Ÿ‘€ And you can bet you ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…ข๐Ÿ…ข this reader will be first in line to get her grubby little hands on it! ๐Ÿ™Œ

๐Ÿ˜‚ I already spoke to GI about it. My main issue that would come into lay for the "safety" people is you kind of have to read the second book since the overall story continues, but everyone will have an issue with the hero of that book because of his actions in THIS book. ๐Ÿ˜’

But if you want to take a chance and step outside your box (which is why I signed up for this one) then you'll be in for a fantastic read! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
