Well, I finished! I left dripping pools of tears behind. How can innocence break out into something so hot and emotional. First of all, the tears were streaming from the beginning. I believe it was chapter 4 when it all begin. It’s not tears of sadness. It was tears of happiness and forbidden relationships. I did not realize how much angst I was going to experience. I expected a spicy, red-hot read based on the cover alone. What I received was so much more and not expected. My emotions are running high and rampant. The storytelling is that powerful.
Now, let’s talk about this book cover. This book cover while hot and sexy ( I love the book cover! It it’s the reason I choose to read the story) it does a disservice to the content within. For readers who may skip over another hot guy with his shirt on the cover may just skip a heart rendering and impressive read.
The moment 12 year old Evie and 14 year old Abel saw each, they connected. It was a joy to read. It tears at your heart in the beginning. Abel is dark, lonely and obsessive. Obsessive with revenge, anger and emotions. When he finds Evie, he has no other life outside her. She is the one person who has his heart and without her his world will crumble. This is not an exaggeration. It’s painful at times and crippling “oh no I can believe this” at others.
This book is intense and vexing. It will make you annoyed, irritated and downright unhappy. Its both dirty and real. It’s young love at its best and worst. Gods & Monsters is not a comfortable read. The sex is graphic and narrated as teenagers. And some of the sex scenes including the dialogue are dirty and dicey. Kent knows how to make the reader cringe. Part 2 The Fall is unforgiving.
Is it worth reading? Sure. I didn’t fast forward to the end like I imagined I would. It was a joy to spend time with Abel and Evie as pre-teens and watch what the world had to offer them as a couple. If you have the patience, it’s worth the read. If you don’t, it still worth powering through to find out what makes their love “the stuff of legends.”As a reviewer I am perplexed: Can you not like a book and still love the fact you read it? Tell me your thoughts please.
