As the second book of Fear Me, it was still hard to tell if this is any sort of love story. It’s hard to even put it in a romance category because how can someone who is so cruel to this girl have any sort of heart, even small enough to love someone else. At first I couldn’t tell if this book was more intense than the first but they are both equally dark and twisted. You get a lot more answers as to why Keiran is the way he is though, which helps to make sense of it all.
Sometimes it seems unrealistic with how some of the scenes took place or when Keiran was talking about past times, but there are things like this happening in the world still which is so sad to think about. But I respect the author for putting it in the book. It takes guts to write about such deep and dark subjects. So, it might seem unrealistic, but in reality it’s not.
This has a much more complex story that I anticipated. It’s full of answers and back story on Keirans life from ten years ago. Told in both Keiran and Lake’s perspectives, as well as a present and past. Sometimes it’s hard to follow but then all the pieces are put together and it all makes sense again. I really liked Lake’s character a lot more in this book. She grew a back bone and stood her ground (for the most part). She is still submissive and still lets him manhandle her but there a many times where she doesn’t take Keiran’s shit and I liked to see him squirm when he wasn’t in control.
I’m thankful for the conclusion to this part of the series. The next book is Keenan’s story. I’m sure we will still see Keiran and Lake, but I’m excited to see what Keenan has to say. You got to learn a little about his story so it will be interesting to read about it more in depth. Just like the first book, this is for mature readers. There is quite a bit of descriptive sex, if not more in this second book. Lots of violence and possibly triggers as well. Still a great book and I have come to enjoy this author.
