Irrevocable by Skye Callahan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved this book! So well written and believable how it all happened.
I've heard of Skye Callahan, but had not had the opportunity to read any of her books. So when a friend who knows the types of books i enjoy, recommended this book, I couldn't pass it up! I've found a new favorite author to round out my list.
This book had some really dark and twisted turns that kept me actively interested in the characters. And even though, at times, I really wanted to smack Silver for her lack of appreciation of Kirk, I had to remind myself that if I were in that situation, I probably wouldn't have been very gracious either, even for the little things.
This book had a major OMG twist in it, and I just LOVE that in my books! And I sooo can't wait to discuss them with my friends! *That* is the mark of a great book!
A couple of my favorite lines from this book that actually gave me a laugh.
Silver talking about Kirk:
***Lucky me. I'd been claimed by the voice of reason within their fucked up world.
***And, as if things weren't fucked up enough, I was living with a criminal who made his bed.
(When she was in trouble, yet again)
***I watched him lube up the plug as i slowly ran my hands under the hot water. I couldn't tell if it was the vibrating on or not, and I shuddered at the thought of trying to cook with that thing having a fiesta in my ass.
The book, for the most part, is very serious, but some of the running monologue Silver has with herself has made me laugh out loud.
I put this on one of my shelves under Stockholm Syndrome, but that's kind of iffy for me. At first I really thought that was the case, but I'm not really sure it was. I'd be interested to read what others think about that.
4 Twisted Stars!
