“You have the face of an angel but respond to orders from the devil.”
Honestly there is so little to say on this one. I would hate to divulge anything on this quite remarkable and dark story that Ella and Brooke hath provided. It is just amazing.
I can see some inspiration that they gathered from another "Sinner" story and my my my this was equally tasty and satisfying...with some disturbing twists and turns. Our ladies found their grove with this one and certainly know how to write, that is for damn sure. And while this is no romance and certainly has content that may not appeal to everyone, it is…
“It is a privilege to walk through those doors. One that’s granted by me. So while my name is Wolfe, in here I am also your motherfucking god. And what the lord giveth, he can sure as fuck take away.”
I nodded as he touched his glass to mine, and he held my gaze as I lifted the wine to my lips. The taste was bitter, and I only managed a small sip before setting it back on the table. Okay, that one is going to take some getting used to.
“Something wrong with the wine?”
“Oh, uh… No, it’s fine.”
I blushed and fingered the edge of my napkin.
“Well, I don’t really drink a lot of wine.”
“Ah. So it’s not to your taste?”
Uh, not at all. How awkward to admit I didn’t have the palate for a super-expensive wine and would prefer dollar drafts at one of the pubs I went to when I had spare change. “I’m sure it’s great, but it might take some getting used to.”
Salvatore fingered the lip of the glass. “That’s a shame. Red wine pairs so nicely with the lamb I’m going to eat later.”
"It only takes one tiny little pebble thrown into stagnant water to create a ripple that affects the entire lake.”
I didn’t appreciate what I had with Gib, and now he’s gone.
Glad you're finally seeing this but unfortunately he's not gone...you left!!
Absolutely loved this Harry Potterish tale and looking forward to its continuation as these sweet characters continue to grow. Still much to learn about who threatens the throne. The cast of characters are so memorable and captivating. Just wish I had a family tree to keep them all straight. Lol
Standing to his full height, he strode over to Neetra as silently as any shadow might cross a floor. Indeed, the High Councilor didn’t realize he’d drawn the King’s wrath until Rishi was already bearing down on him. Neetra’s shrill words fell off, and he lifted both hands as if to shield himself.
Gib sucked his bottom lip into his mouth, wishing he could take Joel’s hand. He didn’t want to see any more violence tonight.
The King’s unscathed arm shot out and his hand clenched the front of Neetra’s doublet, bringing the miserable gnat within an inch of the ruler’s face. “If you ever call my son a bastard again, I’ll rip your wagging tongue from your mouth.”
“I don’t understand. Why would anyone dislike a king who has made it possible for people to make better lives for themselves? How could anyone be upset with the freedom of others? Won’t it make our country stronger if more people are allowed opportunities?"
What a novel concept. :/ The alternative sure would make things "great" though.
“My final rule is that you don’t quit. Every warrior has his strengths—and his weaknesses. You’ll experience failure in my class. This I guarantee. You’ll leave class with bruises, broken bones, and crushed spirits. You’ll want to quit. But only when you fail will you learn. You can’t learn if you give up.”
It felt right kissing him. Having him so close, our mouths moving together, made me come alive inside. He completed me, as if I’d been waiting for him my entire life to bring me the piece of myself I’d been missing. A part that only he carried, and now that he was with me, the pieces merged and slid into place.
I wish I had it in me to write a review but my heart just is not in it.
Bottom line is that this was just amazing. I loved every single moment and this is easily one of my favorite books of the year. So I am just posting beautiful pictures and hope the world gets on board with love and not hate. I'm tired.
Thanks again to CinnaMen for her amazing page of images. Gifs stolen from my 500 Kisses review. <3
