Man this book is a slope into madness.

The parents commit suicide because the Dad has cancer and decided it wasn't getting better and to go out on his own terms and the wife went with him because she had nothing to live for. Certainly not her child. The child had no idea about the cancer over the many years of treatment. Somehow they hid all of that treatment from her.

The father also hated his brother, Jake and yet leaves his daughter to Jake in the inheritance.

Tiernan sees her uncle and immediately thinks he's hot. He flirts with her then goes "just kidding, unless". My dude that's your niece!

He buys her a bag of candy in a candy store. Ah yes, candy from your creepy Uncle, good.

That's the first twenty-seven pages and we're off to a great start. The incest is not bothering me as much as her not being eighteen and this book focusing on her in highschool and such. It really wants us to remember she's a young teenage girl. Maybe she could have been twenty years old and this would read better.

Uncle Jake repeatedly can't decide if he wants to fuck her or throw her away. Nor his kids. Totally a healthy family. Most of them belong in prison and the ones who don't are still trying to get with their cousin/niece while she's still underage!

If she was in her twenties this would be so much more stomachable.

There's sexual assault and consent is thrown out of the window straight into hell. So Tieran trapped with these men gets violated and raped and blames herself and then emphasizes with the incest while partly encouraging it. Ew.

"They're my family. I was trapped with them, shit happened." Incest grooming shit ain't supposed to happen!

2 stars. Honestly it was so unrealistic I just laughed more than I got angry.

- SPOILER FREE REVIEW -

Honestly, Goodreads is such a bad place to get an impression of a book you want to read.

I picked up this book from my local library and finished it in a day BECAUSE I COULDN'T STOP READING IT. this book broke me and healed me and WAS SO FUCKING GOOD i constantly wonder how misha's and ryen's lives played out....
no booktok involved, or anything, hun. never heard of it prior to picking it up.

i knew goodreads reviews are quite harsh, but before hopping online i was convinced the typical harsh reviews wouldn't apply to this book becuase it was just AMAZING, but then i got onto goodreads and read a couple reviews and I was so fucking pissed with these people.
i mean, don't read it, read it, whatever you want, but DON'T SHAME CERTAIN DARK ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK JUST BECAUSE IT ISN'T YOUR GENRE! yes, this book has harsh sexism and awful words from girl to girl, guy to girl, guy to guy, but that's the point! i feel like the people that didn't like this book because of these aspects are the people that didn't understand how deep the book really is. the main character dealt with things much harder than at first sight seen, and seeing how she realizes this and her breakdown etc etc is what made this book so fulfilling. i was practically sitting and crying just because she finally realized how fucked up she was.
yes, this is a book full of smut and romance (which is why i initially picked it up), but it is equally a book about learning to see the bad in yourself and fixing it, owning up to yourself, which is a very hard thing to do.

moral of the story: don't listen to goodreads reviews :)
