Having suffered bullying during his school years, Avery flourishes in college after meeting Dex, who finally makes him feel protected. It seems like Dex is everything Avery has ever dreamt about––but does he really care about Avery, or does he have a secret agenda?
Avery’s unconditional love gives Dex the kind of power that can be easily abused––and when love crosses into obsession, a fairy tale can quickly turn into a nightmare…
Point of view:
1st person. Entirely from Avery’s perspective.
My first book by Jaberona B.L. and absolutely will not be my last. Honestly, I kind of feel that the blurb & listed categories are a disservice to this book and the author’s skill. This is way more of a suspense/thriller than a romance and it’s done really well.
It’s succinct, but developed for the length and it really packs a punch. Definitely dark and twisty. I was genuinely surprised and slightly uncomfortable with several parts. But in that good, almost psychological suspense, way.
This ends perfectly – where it’s great exactly as it is yet I’d also love to see more of these characters.
Content Warnings (possible spoilers):
Check the author’s CW at the beginning of the book.
