Book & Author Details:
Skeletons of Us (Unquiet Mind #2) by Anne Malcom
Publication date: September 2nd 2016
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Love can be a beautiful thing.
It can fill up your life with the warmth of its embrace and spread to every corner of your mind.
It can quiet your soul.
But when that love turns wrong, it warps into something bitter and unrecognizable.
The pain of it promises unyielding noise in place of that half-remembered silence.
Lexie has lived with this pain for four years, pouring it into music that transformed Unquiet Mind into the most famous rock band in the world.
But fame can also turn ugly, twist into that bitter version of love and endanger everything Lexie holds dear.
The moment Lexie’s life is threatened, he comes back to ensure she stays breathing.
He’s not just back to save her life, he’s back to save her soul and to claim what’s his.
Problem is, someone else already considers Lexie his, and he’ll kill to make sure she stays that way.
Note: This is the book two of two. It is highly recommended to read Echoes of Silence first.
Rarely have I found myself as frustrated with the characters in a story, as I was with this one. Their too-ing and fro-ing; their fight against their attraction; the apparent inability of either character to have a simple conversation to resolve their issues like grown ups.
Although the foreshadowing was perhaps a smidge obvious, I absolutely didn’t care. I mean, who doesn’t want to be loved as fiercely as this? For my money, this is a worthy conclusion to the story.
I voluntarily reviewed a reviewer copy of this book.
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth, then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.
