(5 / 5)
She was my first love.
She was my first hate.
The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty.
Until I dimmed her light for good…
Or so I thought.
Now she’s back.
Cracked. Broken. Lost.
And for the first time in a long time, I feel free.
Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future.
Her misery is my music.
Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating.
For so long, all I’ve done is hate her.
So why do I love her?
Okay, So to start out with, I haven’t been the biggest fan of any of the enemies-to-lovers trope that I have read in the past. Something about it is too unbelievable about it for this cast-iron, grudge-holding wench. But I love K Webster, and I trust her, and I signed up for an ARC of this book without even knowing what it was about. She has never lead me wrong yet!
I loved Rome, Raven and Courtney for so many reasons. Their story is a familiar one, one that we hear happens quite often in these days of social media. Webster writes an amazing twist in at the end that you didn’t expect in the beginning. It’s relatively short, so the plot skips along at an amazing beat, keeping you flipping until the end. I read it in one sitting.
This wasn’t a regular enemies-to-lovers story either, not like one I have read before. I refuse to ruin the plot, but it was the right amount of romance and sexy times as well as twisting plot turns that she gets better at with every book. The message behind the story is powerful.
The characters were heartbreaking and beautiful in all their glorious hate and sadness. It’s amazing to me that she can keep introducing us to all these unique individual characters time after time. She is just as good at writing raw emotion and sorrow as she is at writing sweet and steamy. Every story gets better and better.
The author wrote this book after she experienced some bullying for a book that she wrote this summer. It’s quite often that people need to be reminded that the people behind those avatars are actual humans with feelings. It might be easy to get carried away when you aren’t face to face with someone in a comments section. Setting out to make someone’s day horrible by messaging them or threatening them is deplorable and rather unnecessary.
Don’t be an Internet bully.
