My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
This story mesmerized me. So much hurt and pain for one little girl to have to endure. I mean I think I would say “Ok people I give up!”
Fallyn has never known love. Being abused by her parents she is a mere shell of her ten year old self. Until fate steps in, in the form of a hitman tasked in killing her parents. But she doesn’t see a killer she sees a savior.
He takes her away from the only home she has ever known. Now she is surrounded by pink and girly things that she only dreamed of having. Realizing that her capture, Giano is no going to harm her further she starts to settle in.
Giano lost his wife and daughter in a tragic accident. When Fallyn enters his life he realizes that he might just retain a part of that spark that left when his family died. He knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Fallyn is supposed to be dead. So he devises a plan to turn Fallyn into Angelina…his lost daughter. Angelina was only a year older and with homeschooling they get Fallyn ready to enter school a year ahead of what she was supposed to be going into.
Angelina at first struggles fitting it but soon makes friends. Not only with some classmates but with her stranger. He intrigues her to the point of obsession. Why her? What does he do for work? As the years pass their relationship grows to something no exactly normal but then again there is nothing normal about them.
Only when the past comes back to haunt them does Angelina truly learn the truth about Gianao. She should be frightened but it only draws her closer. As her love for Giano grows so does Angelina. She is no longer the little girl but now a beautiful woman. She doesn’t want to leave him, she wants to stay forever. But fate has another plan and oh man it wll shock you.
The author I think was worried about how the readers would take this book. Yes it’s dark, yes it’s down right disturbing at times but I LOVED IT. She also gives you a treat at the tend. Two very different epilogues. Both have HEA but by far the first was my favorite.
Favorite Scene: 88%…all I’m saying…wow.
“My Giano, My only lover by choice, my savior, and my greatest loss. You taught me how to live again, how to breathe, and you gave me the only safety I have ever had. Then you left me. You told me you would never deny me, but you didn’t stay.”
