    Edgy, Thrilling and Beautiful

    The book opens with Senecha Lynch and I'm a melting puddle of fangirl. Senecha Lynch is Asher's patron and concerned about his welfare. Senecha is a predator and a strategist. On Asher's current rep : "I understand that my protégé has committed no actual crime, beyond convincing everyone in greater San Francisco to hate him."  Lynch shrugged.  "Last I checked, that was not illegal." The Fraternity views Asher as a liability and he's on their blacklist. Grace is an art student with secrets and she's trying to find herself. She copes using gallows humor.I can totally relate. I think I'm entitled to a little more than that." "You do, do you?" He took a step towards her, then another.  "What else do you think you're 'entitled' to?" Grace didn't move.  "A shower, for starters." Asher stopped.  "What?" "And now that you mention it, I could use some coffee.  And chocolate.  Lots of chocolate.  Like, truckloads of chocolate." "Are you making jokes right now?"  Asher stared at her like she'd sprouted a second head.  "Because this is serious." Asher and Grace were kindred spirits. Both were detatched from the world they lived in, isolated from the people around them. Both had given up on themselves but were driven to make things better for their partner. The dual POV allows you to see these characters individually and as a couple. You see that even though their circumstances are as different as night and day, the pain they share is eerily similar and they couldn't be more suited to each other.You invest in these characters, grow to care and ultimately root for their happy ending. Laura Olivia does worldbuilding like no one else. She's created a dangerous world with layered characters and lots of surprises. The foreshadowing in this book was excellent and I was glued when this imperfect workd started to crumble and fall. A special mention for Grace's friend and supporting character - Tonio. He was well written and extremely likeable. Grace blinked.  "You went to group therapy?" Tonio tossed a shoulder.  "What, you think I got this handsome and well-adjusted on my own?" I'm waiting impatiently for Senecha Lynch's book, meanwhile do give this series a try if you're looking for something edgy, different and thrilling. I think book one in the series - A World Apart, is free right now. It's fantastic!! Listen to the puddle. Let me end this review with one of my favorite quotes from this book : Had he been capable of love, he would have said he loved it here... I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
