Elena Reviews: Monster in His Eyes (Book 1) by JM Darhower

 

 

 

MIHEFRONTThe synopsis:

Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.

I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I’m thinking before I even do.

It’s alarming and alluring. It’s dark and deadly. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.

It doesn’t take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it’s too late. He has secrets, secrets I can’t fathom, secrets that make it so I can’t walk away. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that’s both terrifying and thrilling. He’s a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.

I want to hate him.

Sometimes, I do.

But it doesn’t stop me from loving him, too.

 

 

My rating: 5+++++ glittering stars

5 +++ stars

 

My review:

“There’s something about you…something I’ve sought for a very long time. Something I’ve always wanted. And now that I’ve found it, I don’t know if I can let it go.”

Let me say that JM Darhower is one of the best Authors of this generation. Since I read the Sempre Series, I became completely fascinated by her sublime writing style and addicted to her characters and story lines. With Monster in His Eyes, she proves once again to be an Author that not only does write a story, but also she makes you FEEL it, in the real sense of the word.

I rarely add pluses to an already 5 star rating, but this novel deserves so much more than 5 stars. Monster in His Eyes is the kind of book that gives you a real book hangover, the kind of book you carry in your bag wherever you go, so you can sneak in a few pages whenever you get the chance. The kind of book that becomes an addiction. It’s the first instalment in the duology, and it’s different from the previous ones Darhower wrote, because it’s an adult and dark romance.
