Benny loves his pretty little dolls.
As long as they do exactly as they're told.
He keeps them perfect by brushing their hair
and gives them pretty dresses to wear.
He likes to toy with them late at night.
One so timid but the other likes to fight.
When his favorite doll runs away...
despite the other doll promising to stay,
his heart becomes broken and he can't help but cry.
He wants her back home or his pretty little doll must die.
Have you ever had to make a decision that haunts you every single day for the rest of your life…the life you stole back?
I ran for my survival, rocks and twigs cutting into the soles of my feet, my lungs burning and screaming for rest, every muscle tensed and fighting along with me for existence.
I left her.
I ran, ran, ran—from Benny and his lone, pretty little doll—until I couldn’t remember where to find them again.
THIS NURSERY RHYME WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!
"Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.
So she phoned for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick.
The doctor came with his bag and his hat,
And knocked at the door with a rat-a-tat-tat.
He looked at the dolly and shook his head,
And said "Miss Polly put her straight to bed.
He wrote a paper for a pill, pill, pill.
I'll be back in the morning with the bill, bill, bill."
All I can say is holy hell fire that was phenomenal! I've heard blogs and readers rave about this book but I never ever EVER expected it to go like that! I was hooked from page one, I love my dark reads but this was like no other! It was excited; kept me on the edge of my seat I now have no finger nails left. This is a novel that will have you guessing through out the WHOLE of the book from page one I was never expecting Jade to be this strong woman! Or was she. Jade hides the truth well under her tough exterior. I F***ING LOVE JADE! She has made it on to my new incredible female roll models!
Benji (If you are the feisty Jade) or Benjamin (If you get the subdued Jade) is a bloody psychopath! Even as a reader he gets in to your head and blurs your thinking! He's twisted and on a mission! I'm babbling here but I really do NOT want to give too much away about the plot because the twists that come you DO NOT expect! One part I actually had to read again to see if I had read it write it knocked me on my ASS!
KER DUKEY & K WEBSTER your ending has just killed me, I'm lost! I think this is going to be one of my top reads of 2016! You must ONE CLICK now, SERIOUSLY. You do not know what you are missing out on. Amazingly dark and twisted with a feisty female lead character. On a serious note the authors deal amazing well with the rape and abuse, yes its deep routed and dark but the turmoil in Jade is real. The constant conflict within herself.
