So I’m the lucky one…I managed to stay away from spoiler reviews and everything pertaining to Night Owl, I went in blind and wow am I happy I did! Now, what can I say without spoiling this book other than if you’re looking for a brilliantly well written story that will eat you up whole, devour you, then spit you out a mangled hot emotional mess; then Night Owl is the one for you. It’s the story you’ll love to hate or hate to love even. In my case, I bloody loved it. It had an abundance of the bizarre and the eccentric yet that made it all the more fantastically addictive and fabulous. It was dirty and filthy but I have to say, originally so, which meant at no stage did I think oh yeah I’ve read this before, the passion was off the charts because it was daring, evocative and imaginative. The words alone can bring you to near combustion and the characters are not always even in the same room when they’re uttered.

‘I’m about to hear his voice. I don’t even know this guy. What the hell am I doing? He could be a psycho stalker. We shouldn’t cross this line…’

So yeah, the characters…full of intrigue, mystery and with great development. They get under your skin and I felt like, absolutely I can see how this could happen, how easy this relates to the age we live in today with the easy access to anyone and everyone, this could have been me, you, your friend….anyone!

How this story begins, well the situation at the crux of it, is one all you readers, and I include myself here, could have been a privy to or even a part of. Quite frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me if this has happened to someone we know. The six degrees of separation and all. The way the premise is written is weirdly over the top, but then so is many things in life, making it entirely possible that this could happen.

I think this Author played the game very well and I have to give M. Pierce a standing ovation for ingenuity and originality. Well played!

We have two authors writing in collaboration; Matt and Hannah. We have one stipulation: no personal details or identification. I loved how this story began and I loved how it evolved and I loved the mystery of the ending. It was bloody brilliant. It had a gripping dark and angsty story wrapped up in a red hot erotic bow.

‘So it was possible to love a stranger.’

An accidental omission sets off a journey that is so emotional, so passionate, so erotic and so enthralling I gripped my kindle wanting to see how it turned out, yet also wanting that mystery and unknown to continue at the same time.

“Greedy little bird, aren’t you?” – Matt

Yes, yes Matt I really am!!!!

I almost read this story in one sitting, and would have done if not for the small matter of sleep, foregoing a night out with the girls because I was riveted. Also I was ugly crying and kept having to pop ice cubes to cool me down; I was in no state to leave the house.

Now, Matt, I don’t even know where to begin with him, I mean he has a pet rabbit which he takes for walkies on a lead! However, I will start with: he’s MINE okay!!!! What a complex, beautiful, sad gorgeous man he is. And don’t get me started on his dirty talking filth factor, actually let’s go there….it’s HOT….he’s HOT and you will pass out in an exhausted mess on the floor. Don’t like the sound of the picture I just painted? Well I dare you to go read for yourself and come back and tell me that didn’t happen to you too!!

‘Matt’s smirks came in flavors – two parts kindness, one part wicked amusement, a little lust in the mix. Oh, and one hundred percent smug bastard.’

But this is not what Matt is all about. It’s a fraction of him, a consequence of a life so tragic and emotional that I wanted to march on inside my kindle and pull him into my arms.

“Beautiful man. I wish you could see yourself. You look lost.”

“I feel lost..”

So, can you spell secrets? Well it’s spelt M.A.T.T!! This man had enough to sink a ship and they were all wrapped up in lies. Matt is neurotic, he’s a complete cock, he’s confident yet vulnerable. He’s an endearing arse and I fell in complete love with him, if you met Matt in real life you’d stay well clear wouldn’t you? Hmmmm…..I’ll get back to you on that one.

‘But there is no such thing as loneliness. There is only the idea of loneliness.’

I think I’ll be hard pressed (pun intended) to find another dirty talker like Matt, this man was shockingly filthy.

‘I told her that I was coming. I told her to come on my dick. I almost told her I loved her. Sex is the damndest thing.’

However, his words in general are so honest, rude, funny, intriguing and compelling that he literally became one of my favourite male characters.

 ‘I had to fight. I knew she wanted me to fight. I would have wanted her to fight for me.’ – Matt

“He feels pain like no one I have ever known, and always has. He’s such an emotional creature.”

As for Hannah, she was a great heroine; she was bright and honest, sweet and vulnerable, fierce and protective. I guess you could say she knew what she wanted and she didn’t hide it. She had real strength and made no excuses.  Seriously, can you be jealous of a book character, hell yeah you can and that was me. But I was rooting for our Hannah because it was clear that we were experiencing the meeting of soul mates who each gave to the other what they knowingly or unknowingly needed.

‘I bound my broken, beautiful Matt, so sad and silent. I unbound my tiger.’

Sometimes you can analyse a story till you go stir crazy, sometimes you can look for that elusive hidden meaning and think you’ve got it. Sometimes you just have to let it all go and let a book swallow you and not the other way round. Sometimes you just have to escape through laughter and tears.

“…sad things seem truest to me.”

“Truest? Happiness isn’t true?”

This, this is just what Night Owl did to me and I am gagging for the next book in this trilogy! I wanted it the second I finished Night Owl. So, if you haven’t read it yet I can highly recommend adding it right now!
