Holy twisted ride!! Going into 72 Hours by Bella Jewel, I kind of had a sense that this won’t fit the good old romance mold and boy was I right!!!
Think Criminal Minds fucked up told by the victims/abductor POVs. It was horror crack. Once you start you won’t be able to stop as the story unfolds. It’s fast paced filled with twist and turns all the way till the end.
The main characters are Lara & Noel. A couple who recently broke up and still have feelings for each other. Lara’s past mistake lingers around and deeply effects their relationship and their break up. But Noel is back in town and ready to fight for her. What they don’t realize is something sinister has been lurking, watching, binding time. Looking for the perfect opportunity to strike!!
Oh god, my heart was beating so fast as we learned their fate. I was reading with only one I open at times, scared to see where things are heading.
“It still doesn’t feel real. They say when something so absurd, so unrealistic happens, it’s human nature to wonder if it’s real. It’s in our nature to question it, to come up with a thousand different scenarios as to why it happens, because the cold hard reality wonder if it’s real. It’s in our nature to question it, to come up with a thousand different scenarios as to why it happens, because the cold hard reality just can’t be real. I feel like that right now.”
It’s hard to say a lot without giving away the plot and I don’t want to do that. All I will say if you are looking twisted thriller but still want the contemporary element in a plot THIS IS THE BOOK!! Bella Jewel flawlessly mixes up the two giving you a story that will make your heart pound till the very last page!!!
