Dark Duet Series by C.J. Roberts

Holy crap! I am so glad I decided to read the last book! This story was hard to read, it was dark and brutal and was not the kind of book I normally read but the relationship between these two people was something that started so hateful and brutal and grew into something so beautiful and loving. I cried my eyes out as she stepped out of the truck. I wanted them to have a happy ending so badly. I loved the way it ended, I felt like it in some strange dark way justified what they both had been put through. I am drawn to stories where the characters are stripped of everything that makes them human, all the love and security taken away and how they find the strength to get out, to find a way to find peace. To heal even if they can barely stand to look in the mirror. It was moving seeing the change in Caleb in book two. He was so much more broken than Livvie was. He had never had anything worth loving, his whole life was pain and revenge and hatred. Livvie opened up his heart and became everything to him, changed his heart & soul. It's was the strangest, darkest love story I had ever read but it will never be forgotten. Be warned it is brutal and painful to read at times, NOT for your average reader, be warned,human trafficking and the slave trade is a scary place to read about. But that aside I highly recommend reading BOTH books.

Taking Chances by Molly McAdams

“That first night, I did realize I would never meet another girl like you. But you deserve someone who has waited for you as long as you have waited for them. And no matter how much I wish I could be that guy, I can't Harper.”
“And he loved you and your mom, so much. I’ll always remind you of that, but I wish you could have met him.” -Brandon”

Once in a while you come across a book that sticks with you. I finished this one over a week ago and still can't read anything else... Total book hangover.
So much went down in this book it felt like a series. Love, hate, heartbreak and trauma. And to quote a friend... "Ugliest cry ever!" LOL I bawled my eyes out more than a few times.

The plot in as few words as possible is: girl goes to college meets a bad boy, then meets a good boy. Falls in love with both and heartache ensues, miscommunication & tragedy ensues, girl looses both boys and finally finds a happy ending in the most unlikely places.

I loved it so much. A lot like Night Road by Kristin Hannah. Tons going on & I just couldn't put it down! Highly recommended!
