This book carries on from the last one so you have to have read Church for any of this book to make sense, this book was mainly from Emma's point of view rather than Church's and i think that is why i did not enjoy it as much as i don't really like the Character. Having said that it is a good read, we are introduced to new characters as well as catching up with previous ones. I think i just love Church so much i wanted the book from his point of view again and was a little disappointed it wasn't although i do understand why.
I would still recommend the series to any dark lover.
I’m not in the habit of reading dark romances; however, I read Church with a book buddy (she held my hand), and both of us enjoyed it immensely. Wow, what a cliffy, too! Not only was the suspense killing me, but I couldn't get the characters out of my head. Fortunately, the wait for Preach wasn’t that long and if I’d had the mistaken belief this duet couldn’t get any grittier, I was way off the mark! What I liked about the first book was how the character-driven plot focused on the protagonists’ many-sided traits and backgrounds. How they fed off each other's strengths and weaknesses. Peeling back their layers, I understood why their attraction was more than physical. Quite honestly, these guys were two peas in a pod. But Fantôme generously gave me a ray of hope. In my mind, I imagined the heroine growing stronger after what she’d done. And my biggest wish was her learning that taking certain risks weren’t always the perfect choice. So, would she get her act together, become less dependant on the man who’d managed to rattle her cage? Would there be a painless closure? Hmm...wait and see!
Did Paul Logan, aka Church have the upper hand? I always felt and I think I’m right in saying him being one step ahead of Emma, being able to read her thoughts and control wasn’t just negative as it was hurtfully true to her persona. Nonetheless, he had her back. She’s a hard nut to crack and at times her actions were highlighted in the worst possible scenarios. In an atmosphere which should have been healing, the reverse happens at the whim of a professional’s advantage. She observes, she starts planning. She knows how to measure the right from wrong of others, her wrongdoings have no limits. And this folks is why I loved how she dealt with a certain individual. Call it sick, he had it coming to him.
But how on earth could I even contemplate reasoning in my tiny head when they both have a screw loose? I admittedly confess that Church brought out the worst in me. I wanted to like him more, I liked Emma even less. I’m convinced that this reaction is exactly what the author wants her readers to feel. We’re not supposed to fall head over heels with either of them. What she’d set out to do from the very start was to try to make us comprehend the whys and wherefores of an obsessive love with tendencies which we, fortunately, will never have to experience. And believe you me, she cracked it, slapped it in our faces and the result; a duet that stands out and has more twists than turns and will make any hardened reader gasp for air!
So, I’m not going to delve into details since spoiling this duet would be a crying shame. Don’t expect flowers to bloom, do get ready for the unpredictable bud to show its head when you least expect it to! Now, I have to mention Fantôme’s narrative which actually made me go back and check out what I was reading. In third-person, was I reading first-person? I felt like I was though. The author’s prose, her vocabulary and the flow kept me stuck to every page, made me wonder if there was going to be a happy ending, something I have no inclination to tell you. This is pure and utter Fantôme style and my last words; be warned...it’s dark, it is not for those of you who have high blood pressure ‘cause this unique story won't read as you want it to. It’s the romance of your mother's generation or some such. Spine-chilling, sweat-building, it's heart-racingly complex and imaginative. And it might or might not pan out as you want it to. Bravo, and thank you for giving me such a nail-biting-sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat read!
This story continues where it left off from the first book. Emma is in therapy, Church seems to have disappeared from her life, and she's watched like a hawk by her mother. And, her stepfather, Jerry...well, he's not quite all that he seems. Emma's questioning her sanity, whilst simultaneously trying to convince her doctor that she's healing just fine. Then Church comes back into her life in the most shocking of ways. But can she truly trust him?
"You be the thunder...And I'll be the lightning. You be the cloud, and I'll be the rain."
This book was all kinds of twisted, as we watch Emma come into her own. She comes to realise that she's not the tool but the hand that wields it. She begins to understand just how much power she actually holds, when she stops trying to suppress her true self. It becomes clear that Church needs Emma just as much as she needs him. They fit together so well.
I've got to say that I'm not a lover of dark romance, and both Church and Emma were so broken and so messed up mentally. It's four stars for a well-written, diabolical story but I can't absolutely say that I 'enjoyed' it! LOL. It's unclear if there will be another book - it feels like there should be. If there is, I will definitely be reading it as it's a pretty compelling read with lines of sheer poetry dotted throughout.
In this book, the tide changes and there is a much more emotional Church and so much more development in his psyche. Don't get me wrong, Stylo Fantome takes the reader on a delicious journey of cat and mouse between Church and Emma. I was left biting my nails and wondering who will reach the finish line first in this competition to see who can be the darkest monster and who is in charge. Emma was a delight to read in this book, she came into her own and I loved her all the more for it.
This book will have you questioning everything you thought you knew was going to happen.It is much darker than the first book with some black humour woven into the story as well. At times I was shocked, at times I literally gasped, and other times I swooned for Church (I love this man so much) but I was never failed to not be entertained by this extraordinary couple. With secondary characters that made this book exceptional, this is one of those duets I will never forget. Awesome work by this fabulous author !!!!
