Police reports are filed and and sometimes candlelight vigils are held in hopes the missing would soon return home. What they don’t ever show you is what happens when no one looks. When the loved ones either don’t know, don’t exist… or just don’t care. The police searched the missing persons reports throughout the state and then the country with no luck. My fingerprints didn’t match any on record, and neither did my picture. I learned then that being labeled a missing person didn’t necessarily mean I was missed.
King was born on the wrong side of the tracks but he’s accepted that he will never be the good guy.
Doe doesn’t remember anything about, well anything… She woke up in a hospital with amnesia and no one is looking for her.
Even when he was only a shadow I knew he was big, but in all reality I’d had no concept of the wall of man who stood before me. This guy didn’t look like he hung with the wrong crowd. This guy was the wrong crowd. “You?” he asked. His nostrils flaring as he glared down at me. I don’t know what I did to make him so angry, but getting a look at him in the light made me more fearful than I ever was of him in the dark, and I wished I’d just listened to my instincts earlier and ran when I had the chance.
When a starving Doe shows up to a party at King’s house things go from bad to worse.
What started as a venture to find a biker to protect her ends with Doe getting shot at and handcuffed to a bed.
What happens when Prince Charming doesn’t show up and you’re left in the Devil’s clutches?
I gave this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I should probably start by saying that this book is NOT for the faint of heart. I didn’t think it was too bad but then again I love crime shows and what not (point being… lots of gore). Anyway… I have to say that my favorite character was Doe. She was literally at the darkest time in her life and she didn’t lose herself. She was strong and always inquisitive (though her mouth and questions did get her in trouble occasionally). One thing that I didn’t like was that she tended to live her life so that it wouldn’t adversely affect ‘her’ (that’s how she referred to herself pre-amnesia). Luckily both she and King did a lot of growing in this book, in between all the crazy stuff that went down. My second favorite character would have to be Preppy, he’s King’s best friend and the BEST guy EVER! I mean he wasn’t perfect and he went though a lot of stuff but he was always there to make a joke in a very serious situation and just make you laugh. In my opinion King was the most complicated character for me. He was the most complicated because he would go from scary to gentle to fierce in a matter of pages. He was also a bit stupid when it came to his own feelings and he would often do things that made me want to punch him (even if he is huge and could probably squish me easily…). This book is NOT a standalone and if you read it will also need the next book in the series TYRANT because… CLIFFHANGER!!!! (lucky for us book 3 will be about a different character so TYRANT will be somewhat conclusive).
