RATING: BUY IT
“He taught me many things like how to love.”
When I saw the cover reveal for Terri Laine’s Because of Him, I knew I had to read it ASAP! Holy freaking hot cover! I dove right into this beautifully written dark romance, and it was one heck of a rollercoaster ride.
From chapter one, I was completely sucked into Tade + Reagan’s story. As they fall in love, there is a tangled web throughout, and it absolutely shocked me when I got to the end. The story is gritty and dark, completely mesmerizing, and just when you think you know what’s coming next, something completely different happens.
The emotions in this book pack a punch as everything comes to light. Tade + Reagan’s story is a heartbreaker, but the strength they both showed had me falling in love and, in the end, I was completely entranced by them. Reagan, in particular, is easily one of the strongest heroines I have read, and her courage and resiliency is awe-inspiring.
Also awe-inspiring—the writing. It was completely brilliant; Ms. Laine paints vivid scenes and characters that have left an impression on my heart. And though this book won’t be for everyone—it does have certain triggers and the story is dark—it was well told and kept me riveted for a whole day. I devoured it.
Because of Him was an incredible journey and one I was sad to finish. This is a great book to curl up with this weekend!
