It would take time. Time to destroy who she used to be... time for all her hope to die... time to truly make her a thing.
But he would.
Anthony took Beth to remake her into the perfect toy for his customers. Mindless, obedient, a broken thing without complications.
But Beth is strong.
She refuses to break, refuses to let Anthony erase her... even if that means losing in the end.
Note: This is a spin-off from The Thalia Series and is the first book of Beth's story. Fair warning, it is a pitch black chronicle of the time she spent trapped with Anthony Williams. It's a story about hope dying, about coming face to face with darkness and choosing how you're going to let your story play out. If you don't want to walk this dark path with Beth, you can stay close to the light and go directly to Damaged Doll, Book 2, which begins years later when she meets Jake. For the brave... I'll see you on the other side.
Not just dark, but black
Having met Beth in The Thalia Series, I needed to learn her story. It doesn't feel right to say I loved or enjoyed this book because it was so dark. I will say this book profoundly affected me as I witnessed Beth's strength and Anthony's sadistic, depraved, psychotic mind. There is nothing intrinsically good in the story itself, but it is so masterfully written it will leave an imprint on my mind for a long time to come. I'm still trying to wrap my head around things as Jennifer Bene has left me pretty much speechless and looking forward to finding out what happens to Beth next.
An extremely dark story
This is a very dark book. The torture that Anthony does to Beth is beyond any human can stand. The last scene when she does break my heart broke because I thought she would hold out. Jennifer did an excellent job in writing this book. I do hope she continues with Beth and where she goes and gives her an HEA. We will have to wait and see. Enjoy this way dark book.
Dark and so good
Talk about disturbing, dark, steamy, crazy, intense and intrigue all rolled in one. This book was all that and then some. This book remind you to lock the door and recheck it again before walking away. I could not stop reading. It was THAT good.
