Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
I am emotionally spent. I am almost at a loss for words over the twists of this beautiful book. Requiem was nothing like I expected and I couldn’t put it down once I began reading. It is absolutely fantastic!
This may seem like a weird statement with a dark, enemies-to lovers book, but Sorrell and Theo are couple goals!!
Requiem is a twisted up story that I never saw coming. I’m not even sure how to describe my feelings or even what to say without giving anything away, except if you enjoy new adult, angsty books with strong heros and heroines this book is a must read.
I hate to cut this review short for such a big book, but seriously, I’m still in book hangover mode today. It’s unlike anything I’ve read and I know it’s a book that will stay with me for a long time.
He’s going to pay for what he’s done…
Theo Merchant was born into a kind of privilege I’ve never known.
He has everything I don’t: Money. A private school education. Popularity. A bright and shiny future, full of success to look forward to. He took the only thing I had going for me—my best friend, Rachel. Now that she’s gone, I have nothing left to lose.
I will infiltrate his world.
I will cradle his worthless heart in my hands.
I will burn down his entire life and destroy everything he holds dear.
I haven’t enrolled at Toussaint Academy to learn.
I’ve come to destroy a monster…
…and I won’t leave until he’s dead.
She has no idea what she’s getting herself into…
Sorrell Voss is intelligent, caustic as hell, and quite possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. She’s also going to get herself f#cking killed.
She’s a fool if she thinks I’ll go easy on her just because she’s broken.
You don’t venture into the lion’s den and walk away unscathed.
She has her secrets. That’s fine.
*My* secrets will unravel her until she comes apart at the seams.
She will bow to me, and she will break.
Then, and only then, will I make her mine.
REQUIEM is a 110,000-word, full-length enemies-to-lovers dark high school romance standalone. Some scenes within this book may be considered triggering to some readers, and it is therefore recommended for an audience 17+.
