“Our relationship isn’t just delicate, it’s scarred!”
Quinn Sullivan was out to make a name for herself as a writer . . . her chosen topic is the dark culture of drugs, booze and sex found at the nightclub scene. Because this world is polar opposite of how she grew up, Quinn takes a job bar tending at a trendy club hoping to have some one on one experiences with the members . . .especially Axel Rye, king of the nightclub party, supplier and all around playboy.
Axel Rye seems to be living the high life . . . literally being paid to show up to clubs and party hard with his entourage. However, deep down, he is ready for something more. When he first makes contact with the lovely Quinn, he feels he may have found that and slowly introduces her to his world.
Axel and Quinn have instant and amazing chemistry. The author has done a great job of pulling together two people who seem completely opposite, yet who fit just right together. In what I see as somewhat ironic, while Axel is making decisions to begin cleaning up his life, Quinn falls deeper and deeper into a world of drugs and partying, almost losing her identity at times.
What seems to be an amazing relationship, however, all comes crashing down . . . as “half-truths are still f*cking lies.” Quinn must learn to live with the consequences of keeping secrets from Axel and is forced to either move on or fight for what she truly wants, and Axel must determine whether he was being used or was being loved by the woman he trusted, who betrayed him with her dishonesty.
This book is a complex relationship journey, as no one is truly as they seem on the surface. Emotions run deep. Decisions and even indecisions can have a lasting effect on those you care about. Alta Hensley did a fabulous job of creating unique characters with true depth to their personalities. She shows both the light and dark sides of a relationship and how a lie can twist what seems strong into something delicate and scarred.
A fantastic read! 4.5 stars.
About the Book:
Is it possible to pick that one defining moment in life that fucked you up? Can anyone look back on their life and pinpoint the exact minute it happened? I used to believe that I wasn’t fucked up. I had absolutely no reason to be.
Until I met him.
He fucked me up.
He really fucked me up.
It all started so simply. I only wanted to write a book about the dark, gritty world of nightclubs, booze, drugs, and sex. I didn’t expect to be sucked in to the point where I could no longer see the light. But I became weak. Axel Rye made me weak.
He was wrong in every way. He was a drug dealer, a criminal, and someone your parents told you to stay away from. Yet, he became my drug, and I shook in need until my next fix.
I was delicate.
He was scarred.
But together…together we became delicate scars.
