Dark tale, well written
on 31 May 2014
Well this instalment hasn't moved the story on much. JS continues to find new ways to cherish and chastise Lily. We haven't learnt much more about JS.
The actual content of the book is good, Lily is a well developed heronie. JS is darker than expected previously and the realistic but extreme lengths he goes to to punish Lily is well thought out and well written.
Personally I am hoping for an HEA for Lily but can't see a comfortable conclusion for JS to feature in the HEA. My suspicion is the author will conclude the books with an HEA for both but I feel that would be a huge injustice to Lilys strength and struggle. I feel the author has a huge responsibility to women IRL in Lilys situation to conclude the story in Lilys favour.
The style and depth of the writing leaves me eager for the next installment. The flow of the book is much improved from the previously jumbled content. It has become a very easy but intriguing read.
I would give the writing style, descriptive content and characters a very easy 5 stars but Overall gave 4 as the story just hasn't developed past the punish, cherish, punish cycle and the relationship for Lily and JS has disintegrated beyond repair rather than given glimpses of hope.
