‘Life is so twisted. Everything’s not always as it seems.’
Yes it was wrong but it was SO fabulously right in every way that counts. We bloody LOVED Wrong. It wasn’t as dark as what we were expecting, but then with the amount of truly dark books we read we think we’ve become somewhat desensitised.
‘You can release a bird from its cage, but if you’ve clipped its wings then its freedom is merely false kindness.’
It was a dark romance – as in so unconventional that if it was real life everyone would run a mile in the other direction. But this is fiction and the writing being as brilliant as it was we felt the vulnerability threaded through the ugly and violent. We felt the romance.
‘Every day it becomes harder to remember why this is wrong.’
This story had the impact that it did because of an extremely strong heroine and an antihero who not only had brawn but brains too. Both were so well written we connected and fell in love with them from the get go. Sure, Jude didn’t quite endear himself to us from the opening scenes however, underneath a criminal and violent façade is a bloke with a conscience and a sense of responsibility. His past and family has defined his actions; his own sense of self at war with that very sad fact. Victoria our British heroine is one tough and feisty survivor who did not go gently into the darkness. We loved that about her.
‘She does things to me no woman has ever done, and I almost hate her for it.’
Revenge, family vengeance; an eye for an eye – how far would you go? Protection and redemption rolled into one. This story had a beautiful romance in its own original guise wrapped in ugliness. We loved every minute of it. Now, to say we are anxiously awaiting the second book in this series is an understatement because yes; Jude and Victoria’s journey does not end here.
‘You fuck with me, I’ll kill you, because no one takes anything as serious as death.’
