What happens when she’s had enough?
Lake Monroe has given in to her childhood tormentor too many times. She knows it, he knows it, and even their enemies know it. When he returned after being found guilty of a crime he didn’t commit—a crime he thought she set him up for, he returned darker than ever, demanding her body and her submission. To survive him, she knew she had to give in to fear once more or suffer the deadly consequences…
But Lake experienced what it was like to submit to the dark and demanding boy who invaded her dreams. Now she’ll experience what it’s like to fight him.
What happens when he wants more?
Keiran Masters has a past that is both shocking and dark. Once enslaved, he now has demons he can’t escape—demons that have followed him for ten years, demons he blames his beautiful obsession for. He promised to make her pay. He promised to make her break…
But after Keiran had conquered her body and tasted her submission, he found a new addiction instead—one he has no intention of giving up.
As secrets unfold,
Identities are revealed,
Danger closes in,
And they both discover what it really means to fear…
FEAR YOU takes place immediately after the heart stopping cliffhanger at the end of FEAR ME and we are thrown straight back into the complex relationship between Lake and Keiran. A relationship that shouldn’t work! It’s destructive and nasty and all other negative descriptors – but then on other levels, it does work. This book definitely messes with your mind!
Lake upped her game in this book and becomes a stronger, more likable character to me than in FEAR ME. Yes, she still has her own demons – but she doesn’t tolerate any bullshit and stands her ground and tries to make her voice heard. I’m not sure I would have enjoyed this book as much if she carried on the same as in the first instalment.
The one thing we do get loads of in this book in answers! I had SO many questions at the end of FEAR ME and I was sure to learn the answers in FEAR YOU and I did just that. Some of it is hard to read. We learn more about Keiran’s past and how that past is very much his present. We start to understand why Keiran behaves the way he does. It doesn’t condone the way he acts, but at least we can see the why behind it.
I cannot wait to read the next books in this series. Book three; FEAR US focuses on the relation between Sheldon and Keenan. Book four; BREAKING LOVE focuses on Willow and Dash and then finally, book five; FEARLESS brings us full circle back to Lake and Keiran.
Just as a side note – If you are particularly sensitive to child abuse, torture and mental abuse – then this is probably a book you need to steer clear of. But if like me, you like to have your limits tested, then I think you will enjoy this!
