WICKED. WILD. TWISTY. AND INTOXICATING. This story keeps you on the edge of your seat. I don't know if I breathed until the end. It was WHOA.
This was my first Liv Morris book and I was impressed. The writing was great. The plot was unique. And the characters were intense. I knew from the start that it was going to be an interesting journey. Just the blurb had saying, OMG!!!!! I mean that's one of the most captivating synopsis's I've ever read. Add in the HOT little cover and BOOM!
From the opening scene, MSK kicks you in the FEELS. There's no denying the thick haze of angst that hits you. We meet Harlow (our Heroine), who's just getting off work. She seems like a great girl. Level headed. Hard working. With a plan. But that night tragedy strikes and her life veers off course.
"You won’t regret this. I promise,” he whispers, then kisses his way down to my shoulder. He doesn’t know it, but regret filled my heart the second his lips met mine."
To be honest, this book is a challenge to review. I don't want to give ANY of the story line away. I almost feel as if doing that would take away from the organic ebb and flow of the plot. This is something you need to experience. It's something that's probably best going into blind. I would classify Marry Screw Kill as LIGHT romantic suspense.
So here's what you should know:
There are TWO MEN is this book.
One is NOT so great.
The other is AMAZING.
Harlow is OUR girl.
THIS IS NOT A CHEATING STORY. The blurb even says that.
It's NOT a love triangle.
It's a novel filled with an UNLIMITED amount of twists and turns.
The web of deceit that's weaved is WICKEDLY intense.
And Harlow is TANGLED in something that's quiet heartbreaking.
“When drowning, one grabs the first lifeline thrown without regard to who holds the rope.”
Also, I want to give a trigger warning for sensitive readers. I'm going to put this part in a spoiler tag. If you're like me, and hate to have any info on the plot before hand, SKIP THIS. This is PURELY a trigger warning for sensitive readers.
So.... I wanted to do a quick warning for those of you who are sensitive to sexual things. MSK is hard to describe, but I'm going to try. The line of sexual consent in this novel is sort of murky. At least for me it was. Harlow (our h) never actually says, "NO! I DON'T WANT THIS." But there are times where you can tell she doesn't want it. I felt it. I think in one scene she actually sheds a tear because she really doesn't want the attention she's getting. Again she doesn't, at ANY TIME, say, "NO." So... this is an individual thing. I know there are some VERY sensitive readers out there. I wanted to let you know. THAT BEING SAID, the author deals with this AMAZINGLY. And I never felt like it was a MAJOR deal. But it was something that made me rage in the moment for our sweet Harlow.
Overall, MSK was a fantastic read. Full of so much angst and pain. It's one that kept me in it's clutches from the first to the last page. Liv's a fantastic writer and I cannot wait to read more of her books. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique story! It was a great change of pace for me. The suspense was refreshing. And the characters really had me captivated until the last page. I loved it.
