My Review

Born, Darkly by Author Trisha Wolfe is book one in the Dark, Madly Duet. It is a dark and psychological thriller with a fine thread of lust.

“They’re not victims; they’re predators stalking the woods in search of prey. If they fall into the hunter’s trap, then they were in a place they never should have been.”

Grayson is a killer, a murderer. He serves up to people what he feels fate has provided for him to do. London hopes to rehabilitate those who seem too lost to this world and incapable of being saved.

“When gravity makes itself known, we’re powerless to stop the collision. Knowing you’re being drawn into a black hole does little to prevent the inevitable.”

There are smooth story starters that woo you emotionally to follow and be led by your heart. There are hilarious story starters that pull you by your funny bone and make you laugh so hard your face hurts. And then there is Born, Darkly. It knocks on the door to your brain and soul and compels you to come out and play…with the crazies, deranged, and mentally ill. So very enticing!

“If I’m obsessed, then she’s infatuated—an explosive combination.”

A fringe of unease wrapped its arms around me throughout this entire novel. Did it feel creepy? A little. Did it put me on edge? Yes. Give me the shivers? Heck yes! Thrill my reader’s mind? Undoubtedly. Make me think? Repeatedly.

“Ours is not a love story—we’re too volatile, too explosive for monotony. No, our story comes with a warning. Beware.”

Born, Darkly made us delve into the thoughts and intentions of those from which we would tend to shy away. Grayson and London played the perfect game of the cat that chased the mouse. Or was it the other way around? Author Trisha Wolfe made me fall in deep lust with a man that should have made me want to run for the hills. I had my eyes glued to the page, desperately seeking “that moment” I was craving. However, I found that there was so much more beyond “that moment” and so many more things to ache for when it came to these two.

“If ours began with a beware, my story begins with a threat. Do not enter. I was spawned in hell itself.”

But let me tell you how I really felt. Like I was dangling by a thread over the earth. Fear and apprehension of when the thread would break, how it would break, or the possibility that maybe it never would, and I’d be left dangling in this state of despair forever. Yeh, that pretty much sums it up.

“We are each other’s inevitability—a certainty that no amount of chains and bars and guards will prevent.”

Born, Darkly was a feast for my eyes, an electric bolt to my heart, and a constant thrumming on my psyche. It was dark, delicious, and one of my favorite reads of this year. I am panting for more.

“The completeness that we mean together is a satisfaction to the compulsions that has consumed me for months. Demanding to be obtained. She is my salvation. And I am her long-awaited consequence.”
