I missed that this was a thriller somehow when I requested it. I saw LGBTQ, artists, California, Picture of Dorian Gray…. and I requested it because it sounded amazing.
I can definitely say it’s good – it’s very well-written, it’s definitely compelling – but I’m stopping at 40% because I can say for absolute certainty that this book will mess me up if I keep reading. It’s already done so a bit – I think I’ll have to read an old favorite before bed as a palate cleanser.
I feel for Mick; no one seems to understand her. There’s a darkness to her that makes her seem dangerous but also draws you in. Veronica has no idea what she’s gotten herself into. And Nico – Nico gives me the creeps. I would definitely not want to be alone with him.”
This whole book reads like razor blades and matches and destruction. I have a feeling people will love it.
