Product Description

About the Author

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story. (This bio is not to be taken seriously under any circumstance.)

I loved this book from start to finish. The story is fantastically written and i'm glad i read it after a friend recommending it. After reading it, i'm not sure how to feel about Annie and Colin's relationship. His father did a number on him and you see some of his darkness but i couldn't decide if i liked him or not. He saves Annie twice from his father but he can't seem to stop his dark side coming out on occasions. Annie is so naive that i never would have imagined the two together and their relationship is really flawed and so complicated but all these things made the book amazing! I was just really gutted when i came to the last page of the book.

This is my first Teresa Mummert book and I wasn't left disappointed! The book was dark, and in parts shocking and took me on a journey I didn't expect with the unique storyline. I loved the two lead characters and the sexual tension between them was apparent and well written from the start. I flew through the book in an afternoon as i just couldn't put it down, this certainly won't be my last book by this fab author!!

It takes a while to understand what your reading, slowly you find out that Colin and Annie were young victims of a religious cult. Colin will do anything to protect her, he is fighting his feelings for her because he thinks he is tainted because of what he was made to do. This is a fantastic book full of twists and turns. .

A dark story of two characters thrown together as children in a crackpot's religious commune and their survival through to adults. I really enjoyed this story and my only disappointment was that it was way too short! Teresa captured the characters well, especially the darkness of Colin.

Teresa Mummert's Pretty Little Things is not a book which should be read by people who sensibilities are easily offended! This story, though short, delivers a plot line which is bursting with sexual tension, raw passion and intense emotions.
Annie and Colin both have tortured pasts, escaping together from a person they still hide from. Colin is the anti hero, Annie's savior and protector, but mentally and physically damaged by the years he spent in a cult, preventing him from having a 'normal' relationship. Annie is the good girl turning bad, ready to rebel against the status of her foster father and brother and to reach a point of self awakening, sexually and emotionally.
Teresa Mummert presents her reader with situations and events in the story which we may question the morality of, but I never felt Annie and Colin's relationship was one of these.
I did feel that Jake's insertion as a narrator almost interrupted the flow of the novel and apart from revealing Colin's jealousy I questioned why he was given so much importance.
Pretty Little Things may be slightly twisted and deviant but I loved it!

By Deborah TOP 50 REVIEWER on 8 July 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was recommended by a friend and I was intrigued it's also the first book I've read by this author.
Now it's difficult to write a review not spoil this for you so I'll skip my usual summary and just give my opinion.
I was hooked instantly, there's something about this book and the way it's written. The characters, Annie and Colin are almost haunting at times I couldn't get enough to the extent where when faced with Jacobs POV I was a little annoyed that it had taken me away from where I wanted to be.
The story and their pasts are slowly revealed throughout the book and this is the reason I'm skipping my summary because the way it's written and the gradual way we feel our way through this book is one of its major strengths.
I fell asleep reading this last night because I just couldn't put it down. While the subject matter is dark it's not unreadable and allows you to imagine more than witness for which I was grateful.
I can't imagine living the life Colin has and he was amazing yet thinks of himself as a monster.
Anyway enough from me, I'm not saying anymore just that I'm giving 4* while I enjoyed this book immensely it had a few problems mainly grammatical and timeline, it would benefit from a good editor.
And a personal pet hate of mine which is occurring more and more these days, unprotected sex, how can Colin, especially the position he's in trust that the social climbing Amanda will take their birth control, the last thing he wants is to be tied to her and yet it's what she wants the more than anything so I find it hard to believe he'd leave it to chance.

It was very good and interesting story from the very beginning to the end. I loved all the characters and their story . I was in awe of Colin and Annabel support for each other as well during their fight with their pasts. It was captivating and moving book , a little bit different from others - in a good way. It was worth it to spend money on such a very good book. I am loving Teresa Mummert books and I am a big fan of her style of writing. Just give it a chance you won't be disappointed at all.

Annie & Colin meet as children when her family become involved with a commune run by Colin's father, a depraved individual who has forced Colin to witness and replicate his sick behaviour so that Colin now believes that this behaviour is the norm. As adults, he escapes with Annie and they start a new life where all the locals think they are brother and sister. They are attracted to each other but fight their feelings because of the history between them and Colin doesn't want his 'darkness' to consume them both. The story is well written with good character development and started very promisingly, I was drawn in from the start. I felt that the story concluded too quickly though, ending abruptly at 89% and with no epilogue. I did like the fact that it didn't end with the usual hearts and flowers that a lot of books succumb to so there's no wedding bells or a baby on the way! I still enjoyed the book as the build up was good and the suspense well crafted but it was just lacking a really satisfying ending which left me feeling a bit disappointed.
