ABOUT THE BOOK:

A classic sort of love story…except somebody might wind up dead.

Nobody knows Delilah like Logan does. Nobody. He makes sure of it by learning everything he can through her social media and watching her through a hidden camera he has trained on her house. Some might call him a stalker. Logan prefers to be called “romantic”.

But after Logan sees Delilah killing her abusive stepfather, he realizes there’s still more about her to discover. His sweet, perfect Delilah isn’t so perfect after all.

Delilah knows she should feel guilty, but all she feels is free. She’s so over the men in her life controlling her. Except Logan saw what she did, and he won’t let her forget it.

Delilah is done being the victim. And she refuses to be a character in Logan’s twisted fantasy. If Logan won’t let her go…she’ll make him.

MY REVIEW:

Addictive, dark, edgy, and twisted! I loved how this book keeps you hooked and flipping through the pages to see what would happen next. First you have Logan. A teen in high school that has some dark and twisted tendencies. He becomes easily obsessed with others, and stalks them around without their knowing they are being followed, but he justifies it as him “keeping them safe”. He pledges love for a girl he suddenly meets by the name of Delilah (Dee). She looks so much like someone from his past, which he tragically lost; could this be why he is so attracted to her. Dee seems like a sweet girl, so does she deserve to be the next obsessive target of Logan’s? Dee isn’t all she appears to be either. She has her own dark and twisted secrets.

I enjoyed how parts of the story were told from Dee’s POV and others were told from Logan’s POV. It allows us as the reader to see the world through their own eyes, and helps us understand what makes them tick and what drives them to do what they do. I enjoyed the suspense around the storyline and reading what was going to happen next. You truly never know where things will tur in the book and I really enjoyed that.

A definite must read to add to your TBR!
