Publisher's Summary

In this village, I’m an outcast: Griffin Everett, the scowling giant who prefers plants to people. Then I meet Keynes, a stranger from the city who’s everything I’m not: sharp-tongued, sophisticated, beautiful. Free. For a few precious moments in a dark alleyway, he’s also mine, hot and sweet under the stars...until he crushes me like dirt beneath his designer boot.

When the prettiest man I’ve ever hated shows up at my job the next day, I’m not sure if I want to strangle him or drag him into bed. Actually - I think I want both. But Keynes isn’t here for the likes of me: He makes that painfully clear. With everyone else at work, he’s all gorgeous, glittering charm - but when I get too close, he turns vicious.

And yet, I can’t stay away. Because there’s something about this ice king that sets me on fire, a secret vulnerability that makes my chest ache. I’ll do whatever it takes to sneak past his walls and see the real man again.

The last thing I expect is for that man to ruin me.

Gorgeous book, one great narrator, other is awful

It's been a while since I wanted to give a book more than five stars, but this is that book. Also the way the imagery was woven throughout the story reminded me of one of my favorite authors.

*all the loving happy flails*

This was gorgeous and so well-written. I loved both of them so much! I loved basically everything about this book and, as is often the case when I love a book so thoroughly, I m having trouble putting my feelings into words. The writing about depression and insecurity and bullying is beautifully subtle and understanding. Griffin's best friend and Keyne's sister were fantastic secondary characters.

I'm going to have to read the other books in the series very soon.

I will re-read this many times. All the love!

Audio: this is so difficult because it has duel narrators and one was fantastic, and the other bordered on atrocious. Griffin's main narrator was great, he brought the emotions through, delineated the characters, and did a great job with the accents. Keyne's narrator was just awful however, and it felt like he had a bigger proportion of the narration. I can't emphasize how horrible his Griffin voice was, it was ridiculous and weird and wrong in every way. His voice for Keyne was fine, except he some times sounded like he was faking the accent. I had been waiting for this with high hopes and bought it as soon as I saw it was released, but I can't see myself listening to it again. I'm so disappointed.
