Legend has it that there’s an intangible red string that binds two souls destined to be together.
No matter the time, place, or circumstance, nothing can break the invisible thread between those two people who are meant to be together.
That’s what it was like between Warner and I—an instant connection, like we’d always been together.
He and I, both from traumatized families, found comfort in one another. The boy with the letterman jacket and charismatic smile. And me, his bohemian princess. The invisible string pulling us to one another despite the danger our love created.
The town whispered about us.
Our parents threatened us to stay away from one another.
They tried to cut the string and keep us apart.
We simply tied it in chaotic knots, with no hope for ever separating them.
Together, we escaped and became the modern-day Bonnie and Clyde. Our getaway filled with crime and passion.
But will our unbreakable bond uphold the chaos fate brought us, or will our love bleed into a pool of crimson?
4 STARS ****
Crazy romantic, and passionately wild. This is how I would describe River and Warner’s story. This is a modern take on a Bonnie and Clyde kind of story. A crazy adventure with tons of angst.
The book starts with River sitting on her Grandma’s lap listening to a beautiful story about how the ugly scar around her ankle could mean she’s linked to the great love of her life. River grows up wanting to be wild and free, and the moment she met Warner she felt exactly that.
Warner also knew from the moment he saw and felt River all around him that she was different, and he knew at that moment that he would never be able to let her go. Both Warner and River have awful parents, and in the small town where they live everyone is always judging them.
One day after too many terrible things, they decide to escape together. Two young kids, crazy in love, running away from a lifetime of pain at the hands of their parents and escaping towards freedom. But it’s not an easy road what’s ahead of them. A lot of blood and pain, but their love is the one thing that keeps them going.
The level of angst in this book is insane, just when you think something is going to happen the author turns the story in a crazy, different way. This story will definitely leave you panting.
