A Redemption Novel
Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don't care. I'll take every day until that death comes, and I'll welcome it when it does.
On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instils fear.
But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as thought he's finally found the only person who can make it all go away.
We're in a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night - and I want to lie in the wake of our war.
This is the first time I have hear of this author and I will want to read more of her books. Wow I have never read a book like this, but it grabbed me from the beginning. Briar goes to work to cover for her friend as her friend is having trouble at home and she running away. She thinks once she finishes work she will go to see her fiance's mother and have a meal with them but everything goes horribly wrong. This is the part where it gripped me as you wondering what is happening. I loved how strong the main character Briar as she always thinking of ways to get back to her fiance Kyle. But the guy who buys her is called Lucas Holt the thing what grabs hes attention is her singing and she only sings when she nervous this is where the name Blackbird comes from.
But the horrible thing is she will be locked into a room with a bathroom and only allowed to wear a robe and that's all. If she starts to trust Lucas and strips down naked and let him touch and look at her she can come out the room, so she thinks is a great idea to get out and get back to normal life.
The book shows from Briar's and Lucas' point of view I love how you see from their point of views. As days goes by they start to feel for each other and Lucas wants to protect her more but hes got a secret what could be the death of both of them. So will there be a happy ever after? You will find out when you read it for yourself ;)
Thanks for the read x
my currently-reading shelf:
Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
