Pretty by Amber Lacie broke my heart into little, tiny pieces and then slowly put them back together. Laith and Andie’s story is not your classic romance, it’s dark and black as pitch like the smoke from the fire when Andie burnt the last remnants of her old life. Andie meets Laith after escaping the horror of her entire existence. Can one actually escape from a lifetime of Hell? Laith is the hot and oh so sexy owner of City Ink Tattoos but has a few demons chasing him around as well. Will they gain strength from each other?
Amber Lacies’ books promise to be intense and this one does not disappoint. This novel has layers like an onion; you keep peeling but every layer proves more….just more. More angst. More danger. More possibilities. More emotion that ties your guts in knots. Ms. Lacie has a special way of pulling you into her world and you don’t want to leave it. I cried with Andie. I laughed with Laith. I hated the man who thought he could own such a survivor, even if all she wanted to do was die. I raged with Charlie over the little girl with blonde hair that never had a chance to live. Pretty is a 5-star read and I recommend this novel to anyone willing to walk through the dark to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
“Why not? Maybe I’m Superman.”
