Monster In His Eyes by JM Darhower
Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.
I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I’m thinking before I even do.
It’s alarming and alluring. It’s dark and deadly. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.
It doesn’t take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it’s too late. He has secrets, secrets I can’t fathom, secrets that make it so I can’t walk away, no matter how much I beg him to let me go. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that’s both terrifying and thrilling. He’s a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.
I want to hate him.
Sometimes, I do.
Holy!! Holy!! Holy!! This is my first JM Darhower book and I can promise you that it will not be my last. I am in a fantastic whirlwind of crazy emotions with this book. I’ll start with this……..
~ Naz ~ “I like you.” “There’s something about you….something I’ve sought for a very long time. Something I’ve always wanted. And now that I’ve found it, I don’t know if I can let it go.”
~ Naz ~ “I’m telling you, I’m warning you. I’m not a good man Karissa, and I never will be. So don’t think that you can fix me, or that I’ll ever change, because I won’t. I can’t. You have to know. If this goes any further, if you ask me to stay, I’m not going to be able to let you walk away.”
I was so intrigued, so taken aback by his brutal honesty and was instantly addicted to Naz like a drug. I wanted more. I craved more. I needed more. I fell for Naz hook, line, and sinker!! In the words of Karissa “He’s a drug, an addictive one and I’m not sure it’s a habit I can kick. All it took was one hit. One strong, euphoric hit and I was hooked.” And the cherry on the parfait of the sundae that is Naz ~ “don’t say it unless you mean it.” Every time, every single time, he uttered those words, I fell that much deeper.
And that my friends, is just the beginning! By the time I got to the end of this story, and might I add, a story that has left me desperate for more, like an addict wanting the next fix….and you too will experience this…I promise….it was spun so intricately, so flawlessly, so dark and beautiful that not only did I NOT see that coming, but I was left questioning my feelings for Naz. And what has blown my mind the most is that I don’t know if I love him, hate him, and ask myself is he for real, is he genuine, or is he a rotten bastard?? Is the good overshadowed by a monster or is the monster overshadowed by the good?? Gah!!! I love when a story is so good that I get all tied up in emotional knots!!!
~ Machiavelli ~ “Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are.”
What a rush!! What a ride!! An absolute must, must, must read that will blow your mind!! Naz will either become your next Book Crush or you will literally want to jump in the pages of this story and Crush him with a Book(s).
