My Review: (review copy provided)
4.5 stars!

The prologue sucked me in from the beginning and I didn't know what to expect. Wow! This book is completely twisted and not something I'm used to reading. I was so confused while reading this...Do I like David or don't I? Should I or shouldn't I? It's the kind of book you know in your mind that you shouldn't want happiness for a demented individual that likes to play god; but then, you read about his relationship with our heroine Emma and learn he truly loves her. He wants to protect her and make her happy.

This book is told mainly from the h's POV but then you get little snidbits of David's (H) past girlfriends POV which makes this a really unique story. Every time I read one of their view points I hated David and his actions all over again. Then I would read about him with Emma and forget about it for a while as it just lingered in the back of my mind. The author did such an amazing job screwing with your emotions like that. I have to commend a writer that can take on the subject and hero she did and find something redeeming in them. And that was my struggle I guess, as soon as I found out the bad he did something to redeem himself. I'm not saying I even understand or get his motives but he wasn't all bad?? Ugh I'm so confused!

Emma, poor sweet Emma has had a terrible upbringing ever since her father passed away. Her mother changed, her stepfather is a horrible person and her brothers are just as bad. She has no one so she gets out, goes to college and moves on. She gets the job she wants and meets someone. Life is going her way finally. She is a selfless person and when you read the end you will realize how much so. After the ending I feel David needs to suffer I hope its not the end, but David needs to repent.

David has reasons for the way he is but he is truly sick and needs help. I hate that right there I'm justifying his actions but that's what this story did to me. Is David the villain or the Hero? I recommend you read this book and find out for yourself. It is sick and twisted and will leave you thinking about it for days.

I loved this book but hate the cliffy...I need more. I need to see/read David struggle and feel remorse. Thank you Claire for writing something so unique and original.
