Beware of Spoilers!
Heroine (Morgan): 21yrs old?
Hero (Lorenzo): 36yrs old
Triggers: h prostitutes herself and there are explicit details of these scenes
Average score: 1/5
Best Line: none
Worst Line: the in-detail descriptions of h prostituting herself and then saying this: “(I
know, I know… ugh, ick, gross…).”
I DNF’d this story because it was just making me angry. I tried my best to continue waiting for a modicum of strength in the h or a redeemable quality in the H but to no avail. Surely, to be classed as a ‘romance’, dark or not, there needs to be something in the story that will be positive.
- Powerful intro
- I smiled when she got one over on him
- Dark romances doesn’t mean the reader has to read about heroes or heroines being raped – it can be mentioned or hinted at but I don’t want to be visualising it
- If the h is someone who is used to the hard world then why didn’t she realise she was being strung along by the police???!!!
