Good Thursday all , today I have a dark romance/ thriller from Lydia Michaels . She has gone to the dark side in her new book HURT .

                           BOOK BLURB 


Award Winning Author Lydia Michaels enters the world of DARK ROMANCE with an unforgettably suspenseful psychological thriller!


Callan MacGregor might speak with the eloquence of a Scottish poet, but a hard life has turned him into a merciless killer. With a first-hand account of hell, he trusts nothing and no one but the hollow hurt tortured into his bones. Sacrificing all, he must escape Scotland to survive.

Emery Tanner is captivated—to the point of obsession—by the stunning Scotsman tending bar at the Imperial Hotel. With as many dark secrets as he has scars, she hungers to know every exquisite inch of him, but her shy nature leaves her tongue-tied. Despite her sense that innate kindness rests beneath his savage surface, Callan MacGregor is a man to approach with caution—if not fear.

When tragedy strikes and Emery’s world is shattered, she learns just how ruthless Callan can be. Violence has shaped his soul and love has always led to loss in both their broken lives. But as secrets are exposed, they find truth within the hurt and awaken a desire to become whole once more.

                            MY REVIEW 
  Ok taking a deep breathe before i dive into this review . This is a dark romance that had me from the first page . In this book we meet Callan and Emery . Callan has had a hard in Scotland and has had to do some unspeakable things to survive . The day he escapes Scotland he sacrifices all even a bit of his soul. When Emery sees him working in the bar she is captivated by the big Scot . She wants to get to know him more but they both are scared . But when tragedy hits and there is only one way out and that is going to bring them both together and heal them both . 
     The characters in book are so complex and well written . Callan is so complicated , he is brutal , complicated , possessive , vulnerable and oh lordy he is hot and that accent will melt your heart and your panties . There is such sadness under his tough exterior . You want to wrap him up and just hold him tight and in the next breath you want him slaying all your dragons . Emery is a sweet young woman who has lived a sheltered life up to a point . You would love to have her a friend . When tragedy hits she becomes different , you want to just lock her up and hold her tight . She grows so much as you read , she isn't going to let what happened define her . She even stands up to Callan when it comes between life and death .
They are great characters on their own but when they are together they are that couple that you will love , they are sweet and vulnerable but also they draw strength from each other and become a fierce pair . They fight the demons that are apart of them and they fall apart together . Trust me you will love them so much
There are some truly evil characters in this book that will make you cringe. Wesley and Rory are pure evil and that is all i am going to say on those two . You will have to read to find out how evil these two are . Trust me you will want to stab them over and over . 
     I sat down knowing that this book might have some triggers that could set you off . So i started reading and couldn't put the book down . I was pulled into the story by the third page.  The author has a way of pulling you in and keeping you turning the pages . I was on a rollercoaster ride of emotions .  With each page the emotions were just on the surface . I was totally broken at one point, I was ugly crying through each page .  If this is the authors first foray into the dark sid of romance I say she has done a great job . There is so much that will keep you reading . There is the suspenful thriller and there is romance , a sweet romance also. The author may break your heart but she does do a good job repairing it in the end . I can't wait to see what else this author will do with the dark side . So if you want a book that will break your heart and mend it at the end . This is the book for you . Add it to your summer reading list . It comes out MAY  21 and you can preorder it now ..
