Codi Rein is a means to an end. A bloody and vengeful penance for wrong-doing. She was our way to inflict pain and suffering on those who took away what was most important to us.
She was supposed to be a no one. Insignificant.
She wasn’t supposed to make me smile.
She wasn’t supposed to make me laugh.
She sure wasn’t supposed to make me feel something other than hate.
She wasn’t supposed to make me love her.
She was a means to an end. Now the bloody and vengeful end looks to be mine. Because it now comes down to love or loyalty and it’s on me to decide what reigns absolute; heart or family
ARC BOOK REVIEW
Oh, this book it has broken me down to the core then put the shattered pieces of me back together all in the name of fiction.
Tangled love By Haley Jenner is a masterpiece of intensity and feeling.
Leaving me ultimately bereft, so deep did this burrow down into the marrows of my very soul.
The tangled threads of Codi and Parkers love along with the betrayal of everything that Codi imagined mattered to her leaves her a broken shell of a woman.
Parker broke Codi.
But in doing so he also broke himself hindsight is a total bummer and misery loves company.
In seeking revenge or vengeance in the name of a mother who would have been devastated and ashamed at the men her sons had become.
Her boys evolving into Monsters in her name.
Parker and Rocco have eventually become everything they once despised and looked down on.
The father’s sins have ultimately become the sons bringing this whole sorry saga full circle in a macabre dance where the innocent is always the loser and blood is the currency.
So watching the pile of cards come tumbling down around Parker’s ears was a kind of karmic justice.
The struggle he faced pulled between his brother Rocco and his love for a woman he knows does not deserve his hate and wrath was as sweet as it was painful.
And when this whole sorry mess eventually implodes in a dramatic take no prisoners fashion, It was kind of therapeutic to behold the suffering Parker had brought on himself through his own twisted actions.
I was such a proud mama bear watching the way Codi handled herself in the moment and also in the eventual aftermath.
She was strong and courageous such a fighter.
But what was saddest was watching her eyes opened to the cruel world around her.
She had had her naivety and rose coloured specs ripped from her eyes.
And for a while, I wondered how she would fare.
She had gifted her heart away and now was dealing with the fallout of that duplicity.
You expect the person that claims to love you to want to protect that organ with every breath in there body not rob you of you last.
Loved the ending especially that the author didn’t gloss over the betrayal suffered here.
It wasn’t rushed and played out exactly how it should.
As she can see from the above ramblings this story had such a profound effect on me.
It was so very well written and such an incredibly emotive tale that I could not give it less than its deserved full five stars.
There was so much going on here and even when I wanted to hate certain individuals I couldn’t help but also relate.
Haley Jenner has done a great job of humanising what should have been unredeemable.
So bravo lady.
This story has imprinted on me and it will be one I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to forget.
