Jade made a mistake. She trusted a man who turned out to be a monster. Daddy had warned her but she let down her guard and now her and her sister are paying the price.
Benny loves his dolls, both the porcelain and the real. He dresses them and makes up their faces but not hers. She is his ‘Dirty Little Doll’. She deserves no clothes, no make-up. But when she escapes, Benny finds his life just isn’t right and must get her back.
For eight years Jade has been searching for any clues that will lead to her abductor and to her sister. Her life is closing in on her and she can feel him getting closer. He wants her back and there is nothing she can do to stop him.
This is an amazingly dark and graphically descriptive story based on a man’s obsession with living dolls. Benny is a very disturbed character whose life revolves around his ‘Pretty Little Dolls’. Jade’s life will forever be changed thanks to her encounter with him and his fascination for her. She was held captive, abused and tortured for four years, naked and shamed at every opportunity. Wanting revenge is her only way of holding onto life without falling into the pit of despair.
This story is written in such a way that you don’t know if she is dreaming it all, if it is all in her head, or if he really is out to reclaim her. Expect the unexpected at every turn.
I loved Dillon’s character and the romantic in me hoped for the HEA throughout this story despite the dark thriller aspect. He is good for Jade and understands her better than anyone, my only hope is that it continues in the second book.
This is a two book series and the first one is left on a cliffhanger.
