Series: Broken Love
by B.B. Reid
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
I don’t believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.
I believe in fear.
He taught me how to be afraid.
We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn’t be the last. For ten years, he’s been my tormentor and I’ve been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet I was still afraid.
Now he’s back and wants more than just my tears. You see…he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge…and he knows just how to get it.
Warning: Fear Me contains sensitive themes.
I’ve had this book on my TBR for quite some time but from the reviews, I was scared to read it. I finally gave into it yesterday evening and in less than 12 hours, I have finished reading but I’m in shock.
Is this book problematic? Hell yes! Are the scenarios here in any way romantic or realistic? Nope, again. So you’re probably wondering why I rated it anything more than one star. Hell, I’m still wondering that myself. Even though I knew it was all of those things that I stated above, I couldn’t put the damn book down! I got so caught up in this drama that I couldn’t move on until I finished it.
I feel like I have to say that I have a sick obsession with romances with heroes who aren’t really good people at all. Heroes who are possessive and downright unhealthy. So keep that in mind when I say that I feel like I have met my match in Keiran Masters.
Let’s be real here, neither one of these characters are going to be your favorite. While I was reading this, I couldn’t understand how homegirl let him bully her for so damn long. 10 years? Maybe because I speak my mind too much, but that was insane. He would have left me alone A LONG TIME AGO! She let him scare her, mind fuck her, and eventually get her to fall in love with him.
Keiran, Keiran, Keiran. This guy here is so beyond messed up. Do I think that he cares for Lake? Yes. However, I don’t think he’s even capable of being with someone in that way. He never really redeemed himself in my eyes, but I still don’t want anything to happen to him. How messed up is that? I swear I’ve been reading in Lake’s POV too long lol. So many people who read this book are going to hate him. I can understand why, trust me!
For some of you who might want a comparison, this really reminds of the Elite Kings series by Amo Jones. I almost have the same feelings as when I first read The Silver Swan and that series ended up becoming a favorite of mine.
I hope this review wasn’t too all over the place. Even though it has MANY issues, I know I’m going to read the next book. Hell, it’s already downloaded on my kindle! If you like dark reads and messed up situations then pick this book up. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.
