Goodreads synopsis: I lost my virginity when I was twenty-five years old
to a hooker my sister hired because she felt
bad for me. That was six years ago and it’s probably
the least shocking fact about my life.
That is, until I met Darcy Monroe, and
“shocking” took on a whole new meaning…
Six years after escaping his cloistered, abusive, fundamentally religious upbringing, ISAIAH finds himself still dealing with the demons of his past, detached from society as a whole, and wholly unable to connect with, or trust, women. He engages in constant, meaningless sport sex with women, trying to numb the feeling of inadequacy inside.
Then he sets his sights on his new neighbor…
DARCY is strong, capable, outspoken, and in no way going to put up with some random jackass next door who decides to make a game of trying to get her into bed.
But Isaiah is relentless. And Darcy finds herself torn between not letting him win, and giving into her own desire.
Just as they start to get close, they realize that something more sinister is afoot and they will both be forced to confront feelings of betrayal that will set their lives in an unexpected direction.
My thoughts: Oh my god, this book was gooood! It was so good that I now regret not to have read it earlier. I mean, I have had it in my kindle for like a year and it has been on my to read list since I read the first book “For a good time, call…” which is about Isaiah’s sister.
I think the reason to why it took me such time to read this one is because I did not like Isaiah at all in the first book. Not so surprising really. But since I really loved Fiona’s story, which by the way also got a five star rating, I could not, not read this book. And i´m so happy now.
The book is dark, just have to warn you there. It´s dark and abusing, but o so good. I fell in love with Isaiah in the first chapter and got to really learn to know him. How he struggles and tries so hard made my heart ache. I was not a big fan of Darcy to an beginning but she eventually grew on me. What surprised me the most is how ruff Gadziala made this book. It is a little unlike her other books. I have a very few triggers when it comes to books, but here there was one chapter that really made me cringed and made me uncomfortable. But I do not regret it for one minute.
