I've been waiting for this book and I'm so excited that I got to be apart of this blog tour
Her elusive past didn't worry me,
Her heartbreaking scars never made me cringe, And her haunting demons only made me a stronger man.
But the day Blake Martin was stolen from me, I was scared to death.
Prepared to do anything necessary to get her back, Little did I know it just might cost me my life. My name is Madden Decker, and this is my story.
His turbulent blue gaze cuts around the room until they land on where I’m curled up in a ball in the corner of the room, and when I don’t jump up right away, he begins to stalk in my direction.
“Did you hear me, girl? I said we have to leave. Right no—” He stops in his tracks once he takes notice of the spaghetti dinner the housekeeper, or at least that’s who I assume she was, delivered a short time ago, now splattered against the wall above where the plate it was served on lies in fragmented pieces on the floor. I tighten my grip on one of the porcelain shards entangled in my trembling fingers. The sharpest one I could find.
“What in the fuck did you do? Are you fucking crazy?” Boring a hole in me with an incredulous stare, he closes the distance between us and squats down to my level.
I keep my eyes trained on him, but say nothing. I’ve got a split-second to make the decision on whether to attempt an escape now with my makeshift weapon, or to wait until a better opportunity presents itself. All day, I’ve been trying to listen to the different muffled voices through the walls as I watched the cars come and go out the window, compiling as much information as possible about my whereabouts and the people in the house. I haven’t learned much except that Raze has been here with me the whole time.
After Anatoli informed me last night of my purpose here with the Russians, Raze escorted me back to the room—this room—where I was permitted to shower and given a bowl of chicken and rice to eat. The rest of the night I lay awake in the darkness, the sound of crickets in the trees, and my conflicting thoughts. Thoughts that ranged from planning my getaway, to wondering how sweet the revenge would be if I actually killed Vincent Ricci.
About a year ago I read the first book and I was so taken and shocked, mind you it takes a lot to shock me but Translucent WHOA...
Reading is a passion that can take you into new and exciting worlds. When one finds a series that stuns and unnerves that is when you know that the series is worth a read.
Pushing boundaries is what Erin Noelle likes to do and it works. She knows how to write to being shock elements, make you a bit uncomfortable but also makes sure the humanity, human spirit and will to overcome are also part of those elements.
In this riveting duology we find out what it will take one man to bring back the woman he loves. Madden will go through hell, he will make rash decisions all in the name of love. What I love is that he has never tried to push Blake, went slowly to help her heal, loved and loves her unwaveringly.
Blake is woman who has a crazy past but right when she begins to have a semblance of a normal life she is once again coming face to face with her past. It was nail biting to read because I had no clue what these people were going to do to this woman. She had to fight to survive and had finally found a way out and started a new life just to be thrust back in. I couldn't take it, what the hell?
We are also introduced to a new character and oh boy! Alright at first I was like OMFG I'm going to hate this dude. As time goes on you start to learn about him, his past and surprisingly he grew on me. It fucked with my head, I mean I should hate this guy, I should not like him but no as I said before Erin has a way of writing that brings out the humanity even in the "villains" that I soon found myself rooting for him. *Head spin* I can't even begin to pinpoint where the transition began but by the end Raze is my hero. He had me eating out of the palm of his hand and I found myself daydreaming of him and wanting to know his story.
While it took a while for Erin to write this book all I can say is that it was so worth it. Picasso didn't paint his masterpieces is days, sometimes it took him years and I feel that sometimes we in the indie community are spoiled because authors take less and less time between books but I would rather read a quality sequel that sucks me in so completely than to have a sub-par book that doesn't have me questioning my or the authors sanity.
DON'T MISS THE 1ST BOOK THAT STARTED IT ALL...
The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didn’t just break, it exploded like a full magazine’s worth of hollow points firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47.
I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave.
Now, I’m a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira, and that was my story.
Translucent is one woman's story of breaking free, starting over, and learning to trust again through willful submission.
