My Rating: 5 stars out of 5
I think it’s quite apparent now that Tarryn writes for the fucked up people and that you have to be a little fucked up yourself to truly take her stories for what they are.
I loved this. So much. I had no idea what this book would actually be about so the ending was a really good surprise. I highlighted a lot of this book because the quotes were so damn relatable. I really enjoyed getting to know Fig and Darius and Jolene. Even if I didn’t necessarily like who they were. Sociopath’s are who they are and Psychopath’s are who they are. Trying to find the missing pieces of themselves.
Fig was interesting to get to know. You don’t really know how messed up she is until you escape her mind. Seeing something of what her life should be like, she instantly wants it. And to take it she will also try to copy everything the other person has. I don’t even know about Darius. He deeply failed at honesty, getting into something he had no business being in in the first place. But regardless, I understood who they were.
So yeah, I loved how it was set out, I loved the story and I loved how it ended. Because it not a story about love. It’s a story about life which never really has an ending! I don’t know, I took this as more of something to take a lesson from rather than seeing it as purely fictional and as a thriller. It’s really hard to explain but Tarryn’s books are always much deeper than just a fictional story. You have to have a particular mind set.
But the moral of the story is, we’re all crazy creatures doing crazy things because that is all we know. And eff people.
“I was selfish that way, wanting people to bend and give me the love I needed, not necessarily the love they knew how to give.”
