If I could give this book more then five stars I think I would. This book was Everything you would expect in a book. From just reading the blurb, this book oozes grit, darkness, mystery, horror and of course a sprinkle of romance within.
Splinters of you by Anne Malcom is the first book in a all new brand new Series called the Retired Sinners MC. This book is told by the heroines point of view.
This is Magnolias and Saints Story!
Words are my weapon.
Stories wrap around my soul, choking me, capturing you.
I don't work in dreams.
I don't offer escapes.
I cage you within my nightmares.
Magnolia Grace is a horror writer, despite what the name might suggest.
One of the best in the business, if you asked around.
Pressure comes with that title. Expectation for the next nightmare. The next bestseller.
That's what it is.
She can't be healthy. Because that means she won't write.
And she hasn't been writing.
A looming deadline and a crumbling psyche drive her into the woods. To a cabin which was the site of a grizzly murder.
A serial killer, butchering women, toying with her.
Her plan is to borrow some of the horror that seeped into the soil.
But hers follows her.
The woods are meant to be her escape. But they are almost her demise.
He was an unlikely saviour. An unexpected muse. He has horrors of his own. A motorcycle club looking to settle a score. A soul too broken to offer her anything but pain.
If you are familiar with Anne Malcom’s work then you will realise that it’s completely different to anything she has ever written. You’ll notice that she has exorcised a lot demons in this book and if your a hardcore reader like me then you’ll know that this book is different. It’s not romance. It’s something else entirely.
If you thought Anne found her darkness in Birds of Paradise think again, this book tops that by almost EVERYTHING!
As I am reading this book, the pages are seeping into my very pores and I am living for this book and I feel connected to these characters in a way that no other book has done.
I feel like I keep repeating myself but this book is so different, quite a fair bit of people are referring this book to some of their favourite investigation shows and I have to agree.
It felt like I was watching my very own CSI or even a Criminal Minds show where not only was I watching the show but I was the show, I was the investigator but also the victim and the villain.
Magnolia doesn’t claim to be a good person, she is who she is and to be honest she doesn’t give a damn if you like her or not. Above all she is fiery, sassy and within darkness is sleeping through her pores and is written using the keys on her keyboard.
Saint is what can I say, everything I expected him to be and not expected him to be at the same time. He had lived a life of evil and depravity and is now hiding from his past. Saint is the type of man who wears his sins on his sleeve. Although as much as he didn’t want to fall for Magnolia, he just did. He wanted her just as much as she wanted him.
Together they were perfectly imperfect, there’s something between them that neither of them could control, their monsters and darkness called to one another and played well together but there manipulative and dark minds. Well what can I say? They are at War with one another.
I am not going to go into the plot of this book as this is a book that needs to be read going in blind. It is the only way to go into this book. Although I can say is expect the unexpected and all is not what it seems.
I cannot write or even tell you how much I loved this book, it gripped me from my soul and held on with a tight grip. I certainly cannot wait to see where Anne takes us next in this series.
