***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Three weeks ago, James Maxwell’s wife died in a car accident, but he hasn’t been able to tell his five-year old daughter the heartbreaking truth behind her mother’s death. Instead, he packs them up and leaves for a summer resort in upstate New York to spend a few peaceful weeks and to gradually break the news. But a spirited and outspoken maid at the resort has figured out his secret.
After witnessing her mother’s violent death at the hands of her stepfather, Madison Smith has turned aimless and bitter toward the world—men, in particular. Her dead-end job at the local resort and her convenient girlfriend barely keep Madison from falling apart. When she meets James, however, she’s driven to protect his child from the darkness she sees inside him.
A forbidden kiss…
But Madison doesn’t expect to find that very darkness irresistible. Drowning in guilt and memories, neither does James expect to be drawn to the sharp-witted woman who has made his life miserable. When their tempers flare, a brutal kiss triggers a need that blurs the lines of hate and desire. As their lust spins out of control, they must decide if their attraction is worth fighting for or if love is the real enemy.
Author’s Note: This book is intended for mature audience. It has trigger elements: Abuse, self harm, death. 18+ ONLY. Despite having an HEA, this story doesn’t follow the usual or conventional rules. It’s rough, edgy and yes, difficult to read in places. The characters are broken and jagged and so is their descent in love. Please proceed with caution. Thank you!
Take two dark twisted minds, throw them together and mix up lives and what do you get? A dark twisted story called A War like Ours.
Madison and James are both running from dark tragedy in their past. They deal with these tragedies in an unhealthy way. When they meet they bring out the twisted and messed up minds of each other. This is not a pretty hearts and flowers love story. It is a love story about two people who challenge each other and learn to deal with their pain. It is a long road that has many struggles.
There are no words that can do this story justice. It is a book that needs to be read and processed. The writing is fantastic in that you will feel every tear, cut, drop of blood, and mental anguish of Madison and James. As their relationship progresses you will have many moments of anguish yourself as they maneuver each day. Throughout the whole book I kept wondering if there was a HEA for the two. Ms. Kent will keep you on your toes with this book. I love dark reads and this one will not disappoint.
