THIS BOOK. I went in to this one with low expectations because I didn't really love Knight before it (though I adored Knight in this). This one though, holy crap it's dark and delicious. I loooove the childhood-friends-to-teenage-loves-to-separated-by-evil-villain AND NOW THEY HAVE A SECOND CHANCE trope. Kristen Ashley gave me a deeply emotional and dark story that I couldn't put down, further making her one of my favorite crack-tastic authors. I want more LIKE THIS.
