✪ From The First Verse (Life of Debauchery #1) ✪ M. Robinson ✪

Dear diary,

Once upon a time…

There was a girl with long golden hair who had the bluest, truest eyes that turned white when she cried.

She lived in a kingdom far, far away in a tower made of stone, but her mind was made of glass that she kept sharp as knives.

Where her memories hid behind her darkest doubts.
Her deepest thoughts.
Her diary became the only thing she could rely on.

No one saw through her looking glass.
No one cared.
No one tried.

Until the villain presented himself as the hero in her life.
He took and took and took some more.

With no regret.
With no shame.
With no apology.

The page never turned.
Their story didn’t end.
Tomorrow never came.

His life of debauchery was their journey to nowhere.

She’d give anything to go back in time.
To walk where she had walked.
To see what she had seen.
One step.
One breath.
One day at a time.
Though in the end, “I love you” were just words.

That destroyed us inside

ARC received for an honest review

If you read the Love Hurts duet, you will already know Cash motherf&*king McGraw.

And like me, you probably don't like him much after those books.

Gotta say, as much as I didn't think she could do it, Ms Robinson has turned me around - well, mostly - and I am going to end up adoring the man.

His dreams have come true, and his girl Journey is all grown up. Boy, is she all grown up!

I need Cash to redeem himself for things he has said and done in the past, and, well I am still on the fence about whether Ms Robinson can really do it.

Music is life, music is his soul, but he is still a big ar$e douche for so much of this story that I wanted to climb into my Kindle and throttle him!

But this is an M Robinson story, and she does love to torture us with lots of angst before she makes thing better.

I know she will do it, but man oh man she makes it hard to love her characters sometimes.

It was great to see things from Cash's side, and was great to see bits about his family and friends that were so not expected.

I am on tenterhooks waiting for the conclusion to this duet.

Gimme gimme gimme!
