it was amazing
bookshelves: mind-fuckery

There is nothing I love more than finding a book that I didn't have the greatest of expectations and end up DEVOURING IT. This is such a book......

Wanderlust is a dark tale chocked full of mind fuckery. It parallels The Dark Duet in a lot of ways. It also has an Original Sinners series similar twist you'll find later in the book. This is not a romance in the true sense of the word but it grows to something loving with goodness.

Truck driver/nomad Hunter sets eyes on Evie in a quiet deserted truck stop. She's just left her home she's grown up in- grown up in isolation with a mother with severe mental issues of paranoia. She's spoken to few people in her life, only being allowed to venture out to the library. She's yearning to see the world and setting out on her own is what she needs. She's got a run down car and a little over $100 to get her where she wants to go.....just a quick stop off at this truck stop for a cheap night's stay and a bite to eat.

Hunter wants Evie and he gets what he wants. He abducts her. He drugs her. He forces her to submit to him sexually.

"But the truth is, I wanted you. I saw you looking at the sunrise, and I wanted to have that. To have you. So I took you. I knew full well how wrong it was, and I did it anyway. And the most fucked up part about it all is I still don't regret it. No remorse. Really fucking crazy, right?"

Evie hates him but she see's remorse in his eyes, a sense that he's hurting and lonely and she's his only chance for peace. Peace from his past, the demons that haunt him. Evie is torn because things change for her where Hunter is concerned. He starts letting her ride in the front of the truck, taking her to places she's only dreamed of seeing, doing things she'd never do if she stayed home with her mother. But she cannot forget what Hunter has done. When they're together, having fun, him bringing her to levels of pleasure she's never experienced sexually, she's torn. But she remembers what he did....and she continues to try to break free. To escape.

"But that was the path of a butterfly- to fly away from the one who made her."

My Hunter-

He was right about me being made just for him. I was an animal bred in captivity, unprepared for the harshness of the wild.

If you love a book where you hate him, love him, hate yourself for loving such a bad person, here's your book. You feel yourself warming to Hunter and almost want them to be together, then he does something hurtful and you remember the monster he can be. Mind fuckery at its finest. Love it when a book can do that to me. It's a quick read. But chocked full of action, angst, heat, and a tad romance.

Do Not read the spoiler if you haven't read this book yet. (view spoiler)

Super good dark angsty mind fuckery of a book.

Lori WOW. Just finished and trying to formulate a full sentence. Thank you for the recommend. I loved it but I feel sick and twisted for that

I'm going to go back to the business of the day dazed and somewhat perplexed that I liked something this darkly fantastic

I'm happy you liked it. What's your opinion on my spoiler? Did that work okay for you. It didn't fit for me. But the book was so good I didn't deduct a star.


message 39: by Lori (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lori Totally agree with you. That did not work for me either
