#AvailableNow~~Hurt by Lydia Michaels #5BlushAlert
Award Winning Author Lydia Michaels’ enters the world of DARK ROMANCE with an unforgettably suspenseful psychological thriller!
IT’S GOING TO HURT…
Callan MacGregor might speak with the eloquence of a Scottish poet, but a hard life has turned him into a merciless killer. With a first-hand account of hell, he trusts nothing and no one but the hollow hurt tortured into his bones. Sacrificing all, he must escape Scotland to survive.
Emery Tanner is captivated—to the point of obsession—by the stunning Scotsman tending bar at the Imperial Hotel. With as many dark secrets as he has scars, she hungers to know every exquisite inch of him, but her shy nature leaves her tongue-tied. Despite her sense that innate kindness rests beneath his savage surface, Callan MacGregor is a man to approach with caution—if not fear.
When tragedy strikes and Emery’s world is shattered, she learns just how ruthless Callan can be. Violence has shaped his soul and love has always led to loss in both their broken lives. But as secrets are exposed, they find truth within the hurt and awaken a desire to become whole once more.
Stephanie’s 5 Dark Blushes Review
What. A. Ride. Lydia Michaels has shown her talent and versatility as a writer! #Hurt is her first “dark romance” and she is bringing it to a new level! I don’t even know where to start my review! Her writing, as usual, is exquisite. Each chapter brings on a new level of terror! What else could possibly happen??? It drug me under like a rip tide, pulling and pulling until I was completely submerged!
“For every silent sorrow swallowed, screams an infinite pain.”
“For all the voices hollowed, that spoke only in vain.”
Emery Danner is quiet, shy and simply beautiful. She is not very social but enjoys the simple things. She is in awe of Callan but her shyness prevents her from seeking more than friendship with him.
“The hurt still anchored him. But so did she.”
Callan McGregor has not had an easy life. He is such an enigma! Life has made him savage and brutal in order to survive. And yet he has a thoughtful, gentle, shy side as well. Add in his Scottish accent and a few Gaelic words and whoa! I absolutely loved him! I could literally feel his pain!
“He was a stunning paradox. So gentle and so kind, but also terrifying for reasons she couldn’t understand.”
As the story progresses it will cocoon you like a weighted blanket. #Hurt will absolutely WOW you! Instead of my normal written review I thought I would show the messages that I was texting to a friend while reading:
“So many OMG moments!”
“I never saw that coming!”
“No, please no!”
“There are just no words to describe Callan and Emery. So raw and beautiful.”
“I am drained.”
He makes the word psychopath seem like a daisy.”
“Callan is so pure!”
“The rage at times is palpable!”
“There is a lot of competition for evil, horrific humans.”
“Every book needs to come with a dose of Ativan!”
“Send help! ~ I think she broke the “trigger” in trigger warning!!!!! “
“Hypnotic and haunting.”
“When will the madness end???????”
“The truth was in the hurt. In the hurt. That hurt. Hurt. Truth. The truth was in the heart.”
