Book 7, Sing. 166pg ebook
“I kissed him like I kissed him every time since he fell into my arms— like it might be the last.”
I.... No.... How.... Why.... WOW!
This book took me a little longer than I thought it would to read, I actually had to have a few breathers in between.
CD ripped my heart out and threw it into the blender, then casually stuffed it back in my chest.... multiple times.
Normally my reviews go up right after I have finished, not the case with this one, you guys would be reading a blubbering mess if I did.So, Sing starts a little after that dreaded cliffhanger in Resist. Jonathan is in hospital after he collapsed and lost consciousness at the sight of his father's handkerchief in Monica's hand, and things are not going to smoothly for him.
"Have me, please. I was wrong. You're not the sea under my sky. You are the sun I revolve around, the stars that mark me, the moon rising through me. I'm lost without you. And if you won't have me, I'll break, I swear to God. I know it's selfish, and I'm sorry. Let me serve you. Have me as yours. Let me live under you."
Jonathan is far from the strong, controlling and dominating man that we have gotten used to. He is fragile and weakened, and laying up in the hospital, is the vision we have.
He is surrounded by everyone and we meet his sisters, I have to say, I love Margie. We also meet his mother and get some insight of Declan, the sneaky, selfish bastard! And all he wants is his Goddess.
Monica has to keep everything together and is failing.
Her world is falling apart, her job, her career and her personal life. She doesn't see a way to change any of it. But she isn't willing to give up, an idea forms in her mind, an unthinkable and quiet shocking idea, one that may leave her separated from Jonathan, She knows that she will need the help of the one man that it would kill Jonathan to know she was speaking to, Declan. Declan is willing to help, but it will cost her. And Jonathan. He wants to speak with Jonathan, or he wont help Monica get the "window" she needs. The "window" to save Jonathan.
Jonathan will do anything and everything to protect Monica, to grant her any piece of happiness. Even agreeing seeing his father at her request?
I will never look at key rings the same way again, that is all I am saying :)
"You’re a manipulative bastard, a brazen liar, and a sadist. You've brought me to my knees. You've dominated me. You've told me who I am and then challenged me to be it. If you made me strong enough to stand up to the world, let me stand by you. If you completed the woman I am, let me be that woman in your honor. Every part in my body is dedicated to you. Every note I sing. Every breath in my lungs. My pleasure and pain. Take me. Let me serve you. Let me be yours."
Sex? Well not so much, but that doesn't make this book any less incredible.
In fact, despite my poor heart giving out on me a few times, I really love the depth of this story. The love that shines through is felt. The way he needs her as much as she needs him comes across loud and clear. Now, that's not to say that there isn't any sex, and like normal, keep the toys handy ladies :)
“He kissed me at the base of my neck. His lips were full and soft, more than lips; they were the physical manifestation of every taste of longing, every tingle of desire, every scorch of ambition.”
Oh your probably wondering where Jessica is during all of this, well lets just say, the bitch is finally paying ;)
I laughed, cried, gasped, prayed, got angry and cried again, this book rips your heart out, but CD gives it back to you, just not in the same shape it was before you started. Don't forget your tissues when you start this one, they are really needed.
Now, I am off to read Monica, I am told this one is the band-aide :)Then, on to the long wait for Spin, out on 15th March, 2014.
