༺𝐀𝐑𝐂 𝐑𝐄𝐕𝐈𝐄𝐖༺ EVEN IF IT HURTS BY SAM MARIANO

TITLE: EVVEN IF IT HURTS
SERIES: COASTAL ELITE #1
AUTHOR: SAM MARIANO
GENRE: ROMANCE
PUBLICATION: JULY 29TH, 2022

Synopsis

He could have been my hero.
He saved my life that night, a beautiful dark angel slicing through my fear and the water, dragging me from its deadly clutches.
He should have been my hero.
I thought maybe he was.

Villains aren’t supposed to win, and good should always conquer evil, but in the elite coastal town I live in, the only purpose a label has is letting you know what something—or someone—costs. Good, bad; it’s all relative, and it hardly matters. Baymont, California is a land of beautiful villains and happy-ever-afters that are just out of reach.

Especially for me.

Until Dare moves the world beneath my feet, and even though I’m afraid to trust it—to trust him—boy, am I tempted.
In more ways than one.
Being with Dare is scary, but being without him is impossible.
He makes it impossible.

Dare’s no hero, that much is clear, but maybe…
Maybe he’s mine.

This story contains triggers and is intended only for a mature, adult audience. See the opening author's note for more explicit triggers, but know this is a very dangerous relationship with a very dark hero.
My Review

Holy heck where to even start....Hmmmm...This guy is a possessive, manipulative asshole and he'd be the first to agree with you!!

He's no knight in shining armour that will wrap you up in the feels, he's the type of guy that your mother's warn you about.

He's possessive, demanding, toxic, he was king of the school with many minions bowing down to him and doing his work, his love making was switched to rough leaving bruises marking his territory, there was nothing gentle about this guy.

Now and then you'd see a soft side peeking through the murky clouds but then in the next breath he'd disappear, and we'd see the cold heartless guy shining through. He walks the line between predator and psychopath. This was a bumpy turbulent ride, with hate and love running side by side.

Now onto our heroine, she was the target right from the get go. A malicious dare to break her down and spit her out. Her life was far from easy, no time for friends, no time to be just a normal teenager, she was isolated by choice because her time was spread thin, with school work and a job what time she did have spare was spent with her mother.

When it came to Dare she wore rose coloured glasses, she'd heard all the rumours about him, but when he set his sights on her he made her feel special. And there were times where he was very attentive and I softened towards him but then he'd sabotage it before I could stay in that bubble he'd blindly created.

Often I'd wish she'd walk away, she had plenty opportunities and I would've loved to of seen that chase, because she was in his grip and he wasn't going to let her go easily.

Ok so all in all, I did enjoy this, some scenes were above questionable but it's not real life and I could enjoy it for what it was, fiction written by the one author who will push your boundaries like no other.

Leave your morals at the door, heed the warning at the front of the book and go in blind.
