When I was looking for erotic romances to read this year for the Roundabout Challenge, I had to give Skye Warren a try. I’ve wanted to read her for years and in fact I think I marked two of her books on my original list for the challenge. This was my first one and I wanted to try one that would lead into a series if I enjoyed it. In many ways while reading this, I wished I had read this years ago when my love for erotic romance was higher. Why? Because it’s incredibly well written and it delivered everything I used to love about reading this genre.
LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE was a little dark and dangerous without going overboard with it. It’s incredibly sexy and hot as well. But I think it may have been playing it a little safe? I thought this was a dark erotic series and while reading it I kept expecting it to go darker but I don’t think it ever did. That’s the thing about expectations though because if I take that away from my experience then this book was really enjoyable in terms of the storyline.
What I had a harder time with was connecting with the characters. I liked them ok but I never cared enough about them to be consumed about their final outcome. I felt bad for Honor but I also found her a little naive and annoying. And that made me feel bad because I should’ve only felt terrible for the position she was in and for how she was trying to keep her sister safe.
However, all that being said I will continue the series when I need this kind of fix. I would say so far this is great for fans of Shayla Black’s Wicked Lovers series.
