Seriously not your typical love story. In the Darkness of Liv's world she was lead to Josh knowing and not knowing that they would be each others saviors. He was just suppose to be another slave a means to keep life as 'normal' as possible and protect those she loves most. During the course of his slave training love blossomed. Liv is torn between having a life with the man she fell in love with and protecting those she loves most even though they had no idea she was alive or existed. It was a dirty, heartbreaking, and beautiful. Love seems to happen in the most unlikely of places and somehow the characters find a kindred spirit with the other. Van her partner in crime finally frees her although I know it had to break his heart to do so. In some messed up and twisted way he truly loved her. Josh broke away from the mold that his parents created for him and carved a lifestyle that he could finally live without expectations of any other than being happy with the woman he loves. Josh makes Liv realize she was deserving of being loved and though she has many faults was worthy of being redeemed. Which lead them to find freedom in each other. I guess I should take some comfort in that fact that I only have to wait until this summer to read her sequel. With Pam's take on heartbreaking, dirty, and gut wrenching love stories makes her one of my favorite authors and I will look forward to reading more of her work.
