3 *Crazy Ass People!* Stars
I'm not really sure what to say about this book. I struggled for the first 25%, then it did pick up for me. By the end of it, I was really just ready for it to be over.
And it ended in a cliffhanger.
Really? This book could have totally been wrapped up start to finish in one book.. and in less pages than this one was.
Elliot was just a nutcase. A totally whacked out nutjob. But I have to give it to him, he knew what he wanted, and nothing stopped him from going after it. He was a man of patience when it came to Joan.
"The worst monsters are the ones that don't look like monsters, because they fool you into complacency with their beauty."
He was obsessed. He truly believed that he was in love with Joan, and tried to make her believe she was in love with him.
Joan was an even bigger nutcase! Elliot kidnapped her, raped her, beat her, and wasn't the least bit kind to her. But she kept making herself available for more. One minute she hated him and wanted him dead, the next she was more than just a little turned on by just the thought of him. Her selfishness and indecision; flip flopping around like a fish out of water, caused pain and anguish to almost everyone in her life in some fashion.
This book had it's moments too, of really keeping me on the edge of my seat, there were parts that were dark and pretty scary, wondering what was going to happen next. The sex was dark and graphic, which usually I love, but it went on and on. I found myself skimming a lot of the sex scenes to get to the really good stuff. But it was those "edge of my seat" moments that bumps this book up to a 3 Star rating.
