I know what love is. After witnessing its devastation, I’ve shied away from it,
I never thought I’d ignore the red flags and wave a white one.
Surrendering to Atlas in the most delectable way,
I didn’t realize he’d been playing me all along
Until I found myself at his mercy.
They say love can heal all wounds,
But what about the scars left behind?
I don’t know what love is. I’ve never been touched by its light or fallen into its depths,
When I see something I want, I take it.
And right now, all I want is her.
Each move I make is calculated and methodical,
Until I have her exactly where I want her.
By the time she realizes it’s a trap, it will be too late.
She’ll never forgive me, and I’ll never set her free.
But I feel no guilt, nor remorse.
Not when I’ll own every inch of her; body, heart, and soul.
And not even Ivy herself will stop me.
Review: Dark and Twisted
Coerce is a complete standalone novel from Candice Wright, and boy was this a dark and twisted tale.
Atlas is slightly (?) psycothic and perhaps a stalker, while Ivy is the heroine with a troubled and difficult past. The two meet entirely by chance (or do they?) and the game is on.
This is a very well written story and for the life of me I can’t understand how the author kept track of everything while writing. There’s so many twists, turns, lies, and deception, that I honestly stopped trying to guess and just concentrated on reading. The romance, passion and friendships brings a nice balance to this story and it was definitely a page-turner. It was a bit different from the previous books I’ve read from this author – but I really enjoyed the change.
