A TERRIBLE LOVE is a story of a survivor learning to live again. Jess escaped a horrible tragedy and is trying to pick up the pieces in a new place. She has trust issues and it’s difficult to make friends. She is overwhelmed by Cas but he makes her feel safe. Cas is all alpha. He exudes passion, sex and a dynamic control that is difficult to miss. There are many secondary characters that are all important. They are different shades of gray and help move the story forward. The twists and turns were quite good and I think an excellent starting point before reading A BRUTAL TENDERNESS. Overall, I really enjoyed both points of views and maybe Ms. Eros might revisit the secondary characters just to see how they tick.
