"He was my darkness and I was his light. We couldn't exist without each other."
For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn't drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect. But that was about to change.
Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule: Don't fall in love. But some rules were meant to be broken.
We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn't know there was one thing I wanted and couldn't have - him.
But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful...and so is the darkness.

A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
This is a post apocalyptic romance - unique from most other new adult romances on the market. The bad boy/ good girl dynamic was never fully developed though. So for most of the book, I was left with more questions than answers. The story is good so far, as is the narrator, but I'm holding out for the next book to give it a full appraisal.
So when I saw some of the reviews I thought... Hey sounds interesting? Post apocalyptic romance OK... The Start was good. Bad boy and good girl typical dynamic but the more the characters got developed the more I started to have a REAL problem with the heroine of this story. She made bad decision after bad decision. She is 21 but really the mental age is 16! They are in dire situations and all she can think about is having sex again? Really you are all banged up, out of water, out of food and have hundreds of miles to go but that is still all you can think about? No... don't think so! Having said that I don't really regret having listened to the book... It was OK and the narrator was OK too but I hope the author really strengths the heroine in the next book or it will really bring the book down again.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I so expected so much more from this book. First the friendship of Mattie and Ryder is well... confusing a bit. Are they friends are lovers... and why is Ryder pushing Mattie away even after they get together... I was just like eh!
Don't get me wrong, it was a well worthy story and I found myself glued to it...but I was glued b/c I was just waiting and waiting for that moment when you just know this is gonna be a great story...but it never came... Story was interesting...but not great... Maybe book 2 will be better. Even though the story wasn't great...I still want to know what happens to the post-WIII world going on here...
Good credit...I wouldn't buy. Save your money... Plus, don't use your credit on this unless you are waiting for another book to come out... It will pass the time away... But this is not a must have...
