Yes another book review. XD
Y’all I don’t ever read this genre but this book was so fuuun!
Ok well let me take a step back. I enjoyed the plot line. I loved the writing style. I loved loved loved the dynamics between Vivian and Ryan. I liked Vivian as a character, and I loved the way you could tell the change in Vivian over the course of the book.
I didn’t take the chance to read Living Lies when I had the chance and can I just say I’m super sad about that. I’m not turning down the chance to read the third when it comes out!
There were only a few plot things I didn’t like in the story. Chapter 13 made me sick. Physically I felt sick to my stomach. I hated it. If I hadn’t pressed forward it may have ruined the book for me. Thankfully it was the only one that was that way and the rest of the book was good.
Content wise, this is not a children’s book. Personally I recommend no younger than 16 years old.
There’s a lot of kissing, but none of it is detailed.
There’s a few scenes that are describing an inappropriate video and even though it’s not actually describing anything in particular, it made me very uncomfortable and I did skip over that scene. (chapter 13)
There was also a scene where a man makes advances on a woman that she didn’t welcome but nothing happened.
Several inappropriate glances and suggestive mentions are present.
There is also talk and discussing children out of wedlock.
There’s mention and discussion of human trafficking. Drug abuse by minors.
Graphic wise, there are mentions of gunshot wounds, lots of pain described. A man dies, but it’s not graphic in any way.
Four stars! I got a free copy in exchange for an honest review and a positive review was not required. All opinions are my own!
If you like romantic suspense and you’re over 16 this is a good one to try out!
Post Note: I also read and reviewed the book after Deadly Deceit in the series and here is the link to Silent Shadows!
