DESTRUCTION. BETRAYAL. RUINATION.
Book Two in the Love is War Duet.
This is the conclusion of Scarlett and Dante's story.
He had done it again. Ravaged me. Burned me. Broken me.
Given me air, only to leave me gasping, writhing.
But then something changed. Something that terrified and excited me both.
Something that utterly destroyed me.
Something that made me whole again.
Our love was cursed from the start. She didn't know it but I did.
All she knew was that I'd lied to her, betrayed her. Done unforgivable things. Unavoidable things. Yes, I had broken promises as surely as I had broken her heart. But, just as every war has casualties, and every lie has consequences–every bastard has his reasons.
Dante Dante Dante
My heart is screaming & pounding out of my chest.
RK.Lilley has again blown my world.
Everyone knows RK Lilley is my one click author. I die over her books, she creates the most beautifully heart wrenching stories. I'm going to try to review this the best I can, because, everything about the 2nd book in the Love Is War Duet, is a spoiler everything. When Breaking him came to a close I think we all had question after question. I finished that book and thought where is everything going? I need answers. Rest assured RK gives you all the answers...but are you truly prepared? Because I wasn't. NOT AT ALL.
When Breaking Him left off, I knew I liked Dante knew he was hiding a lot, knew he was downright sinful, knew that there was more then meets the eye. I THOUGHT I KNEW. I KNEW NOTHING.
Again everything is a spoiler.
Scarlett, if I ever was beyond obsessed with a female character it's her. HER. HER. HER. We all know the day she meets 10 year old Dante her life as she know's it changes. You learn all the missing pieces that you tried to figure out in Breaking Him, and trust me when I say...your heart is going to break, not just for Scarlett but for Dante.
For me, these two together were perfection. But, Dante • Dante• Dante. If I ever doubted you forgive me. He will OWN every last piece of your HEART.
I can continue, but I think you should all experience this on your own. Scarlett and Dante, will leave a mark on your soul, these two did a number on me. Bravo to R.K.Lilley, I Have no clue how she creates such magically, perfectly written stories. The creativity in every aspect of this story is crafted to PERFECTION.
And that ending that ending.
He was supposed to be mine. Inarguably. Irrevocably. Every part of him, inside and out, belonged to me.
"You learn more about someone when you're fighting them than you do loving them.
The king of all of my regrets. The architect of every last drop of joy I'd ever tasted. My tormentor. My savior.
It Should Be Called Breaking Me!!! Cause I feel broken!!!
If I could give this more than 5 Stars I would.
"Once you've been broken, every break after, even when they hurt like hell, can never outdo the profound damage of the first time."
Never has a book hit me so hard, by the end of chapter 26 my heart was racing and I felt as if I might throw up. I'm fairly certain I was having an anxiety attack. R.K. Lilley’s stories are like that, they hit you hard and deep and make you feel all the pain and emotions the characters are feeling at the time. I’ve never felt so incredibly connected to a character. Nor have I ever been so heart-brokenly destroyed by a book.
It's been a while since I've had such a good cry. This book gives you #allthefeels. I already want to reread this series and I literally just finished last night. It's gonna be awhile till I can get over this book hangover and find another amazing book.
R.K. Lilley's best work yet. And if you've read her other books, that is saying something cause she's an AMAZING author.
I need tequila. Because book hangover.
Love is War
I definitely need a drink after finishing this book. #becausetequila What can I even say to give justice to how wonderfully put together this book was? All questions from book 1 are answered and the twists went above and beyond my expectations. I am a sucker for a good redemption book and the redemption involved with this story comes from where you'll least expect it.
