I'm only going to give you a little taste of what’s to come without divulging spoilers, because like me you need to go in blind..

BIRDS OF PARADISE: Is a full length dark romance novel by Anne Malcom. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives' In this we meet house bound Elizabeth & Him.

We meet Elizabeth whose been jolted from a nightmare trying to shake it off to the reality that’s facing her in her bedroom. Because hiding in the shadows, is a man donning a suit wearing a mask and with gun in hand.

She's terrified, his eyes alone look soulless, bottomless pits to hell.

She knows deep down to her core that even if she attempted to run there would be no escape for her because she lives in her own gilded cage with no escape, a terror that strikes fear into her whenever it comes to leaving her house. 

A hired hitman..Him..She’s never seen him before in her life.. 

People like me don’t live in society. We exist in the shadows. In the darkness. Coming out only in your nightmares. 

The first time he came for her like a thief in the night he barged into her life, the second time he came calling, like the devil he knocked.

The cold blooded contract killer, the one who took human beings as souvenirs and then killed them when he was done defiling them. 

From this point onwards all hell breaks loose, we delve deeper into both broken characters, slowly we understand what makes them both tick, we can relate, love comes in all forms and it sneaks up unexpected exactly like it did with these two.

I can’t boast that I’ve read a lot of books by this author as this is only the second but both books exceeded my expectations, and this book was no different, this author's writing style is phenomenal, fast paced, flawless, and engaging, this book was like an onion with it’s many layers, chapter by chapter we were given snippets of information the author would divulge to add to the story we’d gathered along the way until all was complete.

What a crazy un-put-down-able read 'birds of paradise' was, I have never read a book straight through like I did with this one, seconds, minutes, hours ceased to exist..Lunch time came, lunch time went, dinner like lunch went by too. I inhaled, devoured, loved this..Such a raw, gritty, dark, emotional book. Nothing I've read before compares to this, an unbelievably crazy good book. Ticked all my boxes!! Fast paced, flawless, incredible!!

He collected beautiful things.
Rare things.
Ripped them out of their natural environment and preserved them in all of their dead splendor.
The problem was I wasn't beautiful. I was all of the hideous and ugly realities of the world packaged into one broken human being.
He came to kill me.
That was his business.
Death.
He ripped me out of my natural environment, the prison I'd created, and locked me away with all of his beautiful dead things.
I hated him.
I still hate him.
But if I was given the choice and the ability to leave this cage, come back to life, I'd stay dead.
In all of my hideous splendor.
Because my murderer can only possess dead things.
And I can only be possessed by someone more broken and ugly than me.
