From the outside it looked like a perfect world of an exclusive neighborhood, fancy cars, and wealth—if only they knew.
On the outside, Kevin Davis's life leaves nothing to be desired. Living in a world of luxury, comfort, and money, it seems he has everything he could ever want and need. But on the inside, Kevin hides the verbal, physical, and sexual abuse he endures at the hands of his perfect man— James Lancaster, the ambitious CEO of a rising Houston software firm. Entangled in a dark web of love, violence, depravity, and torment at the hands of his lover, the only way Kevin can free himself is to overcome his personal demons. In a psychological battle of wills, who will be the ultimate victor?
I absolutely love this book.. Can't wait to read part 2!!!
There’s a big difference between Storytelling and Writing. Storytelling has to do with understanding literary structure and the mastery to manipulate it; Writing is simply being able to communicate clearly according to the defined rules within grammar. Having said that, Hayes is a very strong writer, but a terrible storyteller.
Basically Kevin has no arc (he just changes because he’s tired—it doesn’t work that way). Theres too much story given to these side characters (not to mention they’re super cliche and flat) and the plot devices are predictable which made me skim to the end.
Kudos to Hayes for finishing his first book, but I hope his Storytelling improved over his next handful of novels. Honestly, I don’t have the time to waste to see if he did.
Excellent Book I couldn't put it down
One of the best book I've read
