Stephanie Drake, or Steph as she’s known to her friends, is lost. Somewhere between the end of her childhood, and the day her loser of a boyfriend called it quits on their so-called relationship, she forgot who she was. She lives each day in a perpetual routine, stuck in the confines of her normal, safe life. If she doesn’t take a risk, she won’t get hurt—right?
Then she meets Pete—or Pistol to his friends.
He’s blunt, arrogant, and straight forward about what he wants. And as it turns out, he wants her.
Should she take a walk on the wild side, risk being burnt, and lay her heart on the line? Something in the way he makes her feel tells her ‘yes’, but her friends aren’t so sure this emotionally shut-off man has a place in her life. Why should she listen to them, though? After all, they don’t know a thing about him …
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Well, that was different. I really enjoyed the messed up story that I just read. Pistol & Steph were just so intriguing as a couple, with Pistol struggling with his past and Steph going through an identity crisis they were just a whole lot of effed up ness!
Back & forth, back & forth, I do, I don’t – that really annoys me in books as I just feel like screaming at the Kindle telling them stop it already so that’s the only thing that I felt let it down for me. However, saying that – after the ending I was most definitely twitching to read the follow on one in the series.
Every book that I have read of Max Henry’s have been more than I ever thought it would be and I Love it! She seems to nail all the dark feelings that come along with her books well, and you can tell they are not forced, that she actually connects with her characters on some level. Her poor head but get very crowded with all these characters strolling around haha.
I am me. Life is not to be lived in the shadow of others, doing what you think your peers expect you to. Life is to be lived to the fullest, explored and challenged.
Next time you sit and think ‘what if’, sit and think ‘what if I die tomorrow?’ There is no time like the present.
