3.0 out of 5 stars Would have liked more, 22 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Messy and Shattered (Abduct Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I have read a few Dark Romance books now and I know they aren't everyone's cup of tea but I really do love reading them and whilst I enjoyed this one it didn't blow me away. Messy and Shattered is extreme in its graphic depictions of violence however I didn't really get the feeling of 'darkness' from it.

The book is about 100 pages long and in my opinion it is way too short. I felt that we needed a much longer book so that we could get to know the characters better. There isn't much in the way of character development in this one and it lacked because of it.

What I love in Dark Romance, especially where Stockholm Syndrome is the focus, is that the author builds the tension and relationship between the abductor and the abducted. Again because of the length we didn't get this and I missed that.

As I said the violence is graphic so if you haven't read a book like this before please think before you do. I think I'm a bit desensitized to it now though and even thought I was shocked I didn't have too much of a problem with it. This book has great promise and I hope that we get to see the author write a full length book. Messy and Shattered gets 3 stars from me.
