Duet: a performance by two.
But who is acting, and who is devolving?
A buried past is unearthed, and Grayson Sullivan—AKA The Angel of Maine—retaliates against the system who made him, deploying psychological warfare on the woman who initially set him free. Dr. London Noble probes deep into the mind of the killer she’s fallen for, searching for answers, as a copycat killer threatens their unity. Are they partners, lovers, or enemies? One final trap will reveal all.
I just don’t know where to begin with this….Born, Darkly left me speechless last year and in extreme anticipation of the conclusion of Grayson and London’s story. Fair warning, book 1 must be read first so parts of this review may be spoiler-ish if you haven’t read it. My recommendation….go grab Born, Darkly NOW and get to reading!! Click HERE for the book and HERE for my review!! With that being said…let’s move on!
Born, Madly is the completion of Trisha Wolfe’s Darkly, Madly duet. London and Grayson have intrigued me from the very beginning, this part of their story was no different. I still needed the stiff drink, I still needed a quiet place to read, I spent hours pouring over the details in intricacies of this plot. Trisha Wolfe, I tip my hat to you, you have really done your research and put forth a tremendous amount of effort into the specifics of these stories.
Grayson and London’s relationship is volatile but so perfect. The way they feed off of each other’s cues, body movements, emotions….they were fated to be in this position, together. It’s hard to understand the twistedness of it all, you know it’s wrong but if just feels so so so right. You want the bad guys to prevail, it won’t make sense.
Our moves choreographed and calculated, the rest of the world unable to follow our lead. We were above them. We were apart, but it was the closest I ever felt to another person.
Both characters surprised me this time around. I always saw Grayson as the key holder, the one in charge, making the plans and calling the shots. This time though….it is obvious that London holds the key. She is in control, the dominant one and it was perfect. Slowly we see Grayson start to fall apart, devolving ever so slightly to bend to London’s will. It was captivating to read. He still remains the same though, however, once he comes to the realization that she is in charge, he goes with it, it is what is meant to be.
She’s my home. And she’s my sickness.
I must say the conclusion of this tale was not one I saw coming. I remained on the edge of my seat trying to pick it all apart and figure it out, and just like last time…I couldn’t figure it out, I kept getting turned around and proved wrong. Well done Ms. Wolfe, well done!
“A lock and a key,” she says. “We are an inevitability.”
Grab Born, Darkly to see where it all began!
