Blue Velvet by Natalie Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ever since my first book by Natalie Bennett, i've been hooked. Now this is an author that isn't afraid to push the boundaries and make you really think on what makes people tick and why they do the things they do. Having have read the first instalment in the UltraViolence series, i knew what i was getting myself into and i don't think even at that i was completely prepared for the trip that i went on.
I love the fact that Natalie Bennett isn't afraid to give you that sort of HEA that is unconventional. There's nothing 'sweet' or adorable about it. It's real. It's dark and it's so very addictive. I've come to realize that as much as i can enjoy a really good love story, i also love to read about the dark things that make you shudder and make you really think about whether or not you live with rose colored glasses. Blue Velvet was that. Oh, there was love. There was dirty and gritty. And there was also something that made you think , that made you realize that these characters don't fit in the box of what society deems as 'normal'. Quite honestly, i'm not sure how much more i can say about this book without giving away anything that is and was mind blowing. Trust me when i say that you should read the first book in the duet and then get ready to get your socks knocked off in ways you never expected... it's that much worth it. Trust me.
