If you like forbidden romance novels with a twist, this is the novel for you. This is the type of book you’d read when it’s raining and you want to curl up with a blanket and immerse yourself into a tragic love story. The first time I read this, I fell in love instantly and I could not put the book down. Although Syrie James makes Michael’s predicament obvious from the start, I was on the edge of my seat to read more about Michael’s dark past. The characters are clever and so sophisticated and as cliche as it sounds, they were perfect for each other. The romance in the novel is beyond heartwarming and it’s enough to curl anyone’s toes and make them feel warm and fuzzy inside. This novel would be perfect for all romantics and for people who like to shut the world out and lose themselves in a perfectly written story.
