Publication Date: July 7, 2021
Genre/Tropes: Taboo/Psychological/Dark Romance
Author: K. Webster
Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
Mind completely blown 🤯 and also blotting my eyes at the amazing love story behind the tangled web of it all.
This kind of tale is why K. Webster continually blows away all of the expectations I think I have where she can’t get any better, but she continually proves me wrong over and over again. She tops her writing and shatters any glass ceiling I try to place on her and I love her for it.
Whispers and Roars is unlike any book I’ve ever read. I sat down and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. It’s hard to put into one box as it’s definitely taboo and can have its triggers, but its also psychological and completely engaging and at the heart of it all is a love story that is the best part of the entire thing. Every character is engaging and unique and I loved the entire story from beginning to end.
Completely fell in love with Yeo, who is the heart and soul of the book, but also had moments where my heart was completely ripped my heart out and made me cry (while sitting at work mind you). He loves so deeply and passionately. Webster flushed him out so beautifully it literally made me weep.
Kady and Yeo’s love is one for the ages, but this is not a story to delve into lightly. However, if you love and respect where Webster can brings you on her literary journey than this story is one to take.
“You are terrifying and strange and beautiful, something not everyone knows how to love.” – Warsan Shire
From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a gripping and emotional psychological romance standalone!
I’m a recluse.
Sad, quiet, afraid.
Sequestered in my home away from the world.
It’s better this way.
I wasn’t always alone.
I had him—my boyfriend, my best friend, my everything.
But I sent him away.
I was a fungus. Growing and festering. Turning his brilliant parts black with the disease otherwise known as me.
My sweet boy was sick in love. I couldn’t bear to think about what he was giving up. For me. I’d poisoned him, but it wasn’t too late. I could fix it. So, I did.
But he’s back.
The boy blossomed into a man who wants to fight me for me.
The past that rules me is dark and chaotic and violent.
It always wins.
Love isn’t supposed to be a war.
Yeo thinks our hearts, though, will win this time.
Whispers and the Roars is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. The abuse written in this story is graphic and not glossed over, which could be upsetting to some. This story is NOT for everyone. Proceed with caution.
