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!
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.
