One of my favorite things is discovering a "new to me author" that hits all my "must haves" in the first book of theirs I pick up! India Adams gave me a story that included darkness, suspense, passion, sex and character depth. I loved Bors & Ivy's story. There are some really deep and twisted moments. If you are not a fan of a darker themed read, you may want to steer clear (triggers include beatings, blood, torture). If you can get past those aspects, you will find that this is really a story about hope and redemption. Two people who are so traumatized from their pasts, that they cannot even see the light in the dark, even when it is shining right in front of them. I enjoyed the development of their characters, individually and together, and I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
