He had her love. Her devotion. He destroyed her with it!
Years I loved Faye Avery from a distance, watched my brother have something he didn't deserve. She was always too good for him. Dante had a need for control and that grew with him from childhood, infecting her to bend to his whim.
When Dante abandoned her, the girl who put his future and needs before her own, I rediscovered the girl who lost herself to the heartache. She blossomed and flourished in the light of the love she deserved - until he robbed me of her. Breaking her down, dimming the essence of the woman she had become.
Dante had a darkness inside him that led him down a path of depravity. He was too far gone. He functioned on corruption, humiliation, power and retribution, and all for something that never happened.
What he forgets is this! I not only wear his face, I carry the darkness inside of me too, and my wrath will coat him with it so thick he will drown under the rain of my reckoning.
He wants Star, a memory of a girl he used to know. He stole Faye, a woman who owns my heart and is the cadence in mine.
I will find him.
I will take her from him.
And then I will kill him.
After I finished FaCade I was dying to get my hands on Cadence and Ker and Dawn did not disappoint. Everything about Cadence draws you in, the revenge, the lust, the drama, the utter betrayal... Every last word is designed to draw you in and hold you hostage, these two authors are ridiculously talented separately and together they are mind numbing!
I absolutely loved the story! It's dark, it's gritty and it is oh so addictive! The characters are so diverse – you literally have every personality type covered. All the characters continued to develop in a way that was true to both the progression of the story and to FaCade. Where in FaCade I couldn't stand Faye (Star), in Cadence I LOVED her. She is everything I wanted her to turn into and she is the kind of leading lady that everyone wants to come out on top. Cade is simply explosive, he bursts onto the page demanding your attention until you can't help but give in and give him exactly what he wants. Dante is still Dante, and I still have absolutely no idea why he seems to have gotten under my skin like he has!
This is one addictive series and I recommend it highly! Just make sure you have everything you need at hand because you won't want to put it down long enough to go get it! Another one knocked out of the park Ker & Dawn! :)
