//Where Good Girls Go To Die by Holly Renee//
“But love is a word that is too weak and used too often to describe what I feel for you. It’s relentless and desperate, and every time you smile I fall harder and harder.”
A hot, sexy, fast-paced, angst filled novel about two lovers torn apart by misunderstandings and fear leaving behind two bleeding hearts in the aftermath still needing and wanting each other.
I devoured this novel, cover to cover, in one sitting. It was the first novel I’ve ever read from this author, and it blew me away. Second chance romances are my absolute favorite to read because they are full of angst, longing glances, and stolen moments that take my breath away. Where Good Girls Go To Die held all of these elements. The first time Liv and Parker lock eyes after not seeing each other for four years was palpable and there push and pull was intense. Their story was heartbreaking, but hope was just beneath the surface every second just waiting for the perfect moment to shatter the walls they built to protect themselves from one anther. I cannot count how many times I yelled “JUST KISS ALREADY!” while reading it, and, O.M.G. when they finally broke… *sigh* It was so satisfying!
So why no five feathers? As much as I loved this book, I was also left wanting and CRAVING more! The angst was off the charts amazing but I wanted more. I wanted more of a slow burn instead of a quick in your face novel. I wanted those longing glances and those tiny accidental touches to be dragged out. I wanted to know how each and everyone one of those elements made them feel. Another great way angst could have been built up was delving deeper into their personal lives, especially Parker’s life. Those were the only missed opportunities I could see!
Overall, I loved this novel! It was quick, sweet, and SEXY! Emphasis on the sexy! 😉 I cannot wait to read the next novel by this author!
It was a bad idea from the beginning.
He was my brother’s best friend and the definition of unavailable.
But I didn’t care.
I had loved him for as long as I could remember.
He was worth the risk. He was worth everything.
But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him. He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn’t there to catch me.
So I ran.
Four years later, I never expected to see him again.
He was still my brother’s best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever.
He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.
Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.
Unfortunately for him, I wasn’t a good girl anymore.
