“Beautiful things must be admired from afar. Beautiful things must not be touched. That’s what he always used to tell me. He was wrong.”
Javi He is a monster, a beast, exactly what they made him. He is cold and ruthless and is out for revenge against the man who started it all.
“I was looking in the wrong direction. Because monsters don’t always come from the darkness. Sometimes, they hide in broad daylight.”
I had conflicting issues with this book. It had nothing to do with the triggers in this one. I actually enjoyed parts of this. What had me rolling my eyes was the relationship between Javi and Bella. He took her away and broke her. He then proceeded to degrade her day in and day out. Even when he started to feel things for her.
“I am in love with my captor. He is my tormentor. My greatest source of pain and fear. But somehow, he has also become my sanctuary. My whole world.”
He thought everything was a lie, everyone was lying to him. I had to shake my head, this man was overly paranoid and yes, he had his reasons but where Bella was concerned, he shouldn’t have.
“Javi is the poison I drink so willingly because nothing else has ever tasted so sweet.”
He set out to do something an it accomplished it. I don’t know I guess I am a little jaded on somethings. This book just fell a little short of it’s mark for me is all, I guess. There were parts that were really good, really good it had me stuck but when those parts were over my mind wandered away.
