Two strangers in Paris ...One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.
He was the artist upstairs with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.
He was the devil inviting me to sin, seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.
He was desire and need.
When he touched me, my body sang. My soul came alive.
But I belonged to another man, and he didn't want to let me go.
“In a life full of finite moments, I find infinity in him and his love.”
I’ll make this one short and sweet. This was a fantastic read that kept me hooked and totally invested from beginning to end. Loved it, love when a book is super intriguing and keeps you guessing. This was definitely that type of book. If you’ve read Mia Asher before, you know that her books are super angsty and that she’s a queen when it comes to forbidden/taboo relationships. Love Me in the Dark is all of that but it’s also super beautiful and swoony.
“Little did I know, little did I understand, that in the balance of life, happiness can’t exist without sadness.”
My recommendation is to go in blind, don’t peak, don’t read spoilers. Get to know all of these characters as you read the story and then make your own judgement. The blurb is pretty self-explanatory but you’re in for a real rollercoaster ride.
“Love is cruel for it makes one weak.”
I loved the writing, it was simply beautiful. I also loved the way it’s written and the different POVs. I also think the pacing was fantastic. All of the relationships in the book were so real and so complicated and they just developed perfectly.
“They say time heals all wounds, but I disagree. Grief never ends, it just changes. You learn how to live with it, rebuild yourself from the shattered pieces around you until you’re whole again, but you will never be the same. The light is gone. The flavors. The laughter. You become a stranger who you used to know. But then one day you wake up, and you find the dark has been penetrated by a spark in the shape of a slip of woman with brown eyes that could drive a man to perdition.”
These characters were real, they were flawed, they were also broken and at times had to make hard decisions. This book is so full of hope and it will make you believe in second chances. I really don’t want to say anything else cause I don’t want to spoil a single thing!
“One must live. Fall. Fail. Get up. Try again and again until we get it right. Life is too short to not know how you like your eggs, Valentina.”
The only thing I would’ve loved was an epilogue, because well, I’m an epilogue whore. Other than that this was simply fantastic. Mia’s writing is simply beautiful and her attention to detail is superb. I absolute recommend this one if you’re looking for swoony yet complicated!
“You were paying attention …”
“Of course, I was. When it comes to you, I always am.”
