♕ARC REVIEW ♕ After Our Kiss by Nora Flite

AFTER OUR KISS BY NORA FLITE
TITLE: After Our Kiss
AUTHOR: Nora Flite
GENRE: Dark
PUBLICATION: August 29th, 2017
He isn't my savior. He's the man who's here to break me.

I was thirteen when I was kidnapped. 

Fourteen when he helped me escape. 

Twenty-three before I ever saw him again. 

His face is all over the news: he's a wanted man, now. Maybe my memory played tricks on me… but he looks so different. The boy who saved me years ago had a shy smile and dark, soulful eyes full of secrets.

This man has a hard jaw and a harder mouth. Lips that could never whisper sweet promises. 

I knew him as a hero—my savior. I refuse to believe he could become a villain. 

Not him. 

Then he abducts me, proving me wrong.

He tells me he's going to take me apart and put me back together again. Make me what he needs me to be: a plaything for a monster.

It's the fate I escaped when I was fourteen. And that's when I finally understand. 

He was never my hero. 

He's the man who's going to break me.

Author's note: I'm not going to tell you what's inside of these pages, other than this: Yes, it's a dark romance. I fully believe you're strong enough to experience it without any hand-holding. After all, surely you trust me by now? ...

I was thirteen when I was kidnapped. 

My name is Georgia Mary King and I was whisked away from my bed in the early hours of the morning curled up under my covers surfing the internet when I should've been asleep, a knock and just mere seconds later a cloth pressed over my face knocking me out instantly no time to scream, no time to struggle, everything turned black.

That was how he came for me in the dark - a phantom who heralded no warning, and a man who left no mark...no evidence.

To waking up bound, hands and feet with a mirror above throwing her reflection back at her. Scared, powerless to escape. Barely kept alive, befriended by one of the sons, Conway who would sneak in little tidbits of food and drink and they'd lie on the threadbare mattress and read out loud, her only friend in the darkness of hell where she was kept, days turn into months. She was held in a house in the middle of nowhere, isolated, it held a male and his two sons.

Scared that I would die and never having experienced at least one kiss

"Conway," I said softly. "You could do it."
"Do what?"
"Kiss me."
"You could be my first." 


That kiss changed everything. That kiss shaped her escape. That kiss moulded her to Conway for years to come. That kiss brought her freedom. 

Fourteen when he helped me escape.

Twenty-three before I ever saw him again.. 

Here is where I'm going to leave my review and urge you to take that plunge come release day and one click, you won't regret it!!

First off I have to say that I love the cover!! Ok onto my review, this book ticked all my boxes, i loved how effortlessly I connected with the story, the characters, it wasn't what I would class as dark but that's only because I tend to go where some reviewers are too scared to tread, but if it's a reader's first step into the darkness then this would be the perfect stepping stone for them. The perfect blend of suspense, romance, and an HEA that had me glad how the story was wrapped up. 

I found myself hooked, her use of words and the flow of the story made it very hard to put down once started which is the kind of books I love to encounter. This is a first time read for me by this author but after reading this one I’m definitely going to be reading more of her works in the future.
