Review: Darkest Before Dawn by Stevie J. Cole

*****5 Stars*****

I've got to be honest and admit that it took me a little while to get into this book. I think that's because initially, I didn't really connect with Ava.
However, this is the web that Stevie J Cole has spun and I guarantee that if you take this journey, you are bound to be caught up.
Max is forced to return to a life he had left behind but he embraces the darkness for the better good. What he finds is that his light, is in fact darkness itself but can he accept it?
All Ava wants, is to forget and to be wanted. Things take a turn and she loses a part of herself. It's a part she doesn't want back, despite feeling destined to live a half-life.
This book is beautifully written. It so perfectly captures the feelings of despair, desperation, hope and love.
I cannot recommend this this book highly enough. It's emotive and thrilling and a must read in my opinion.

Sixty-four days in captivity. Sixty-four days to lose yourself—or find yourself.

I’m Ava Donovan. I was abducted at the age of nineteen. I’m told I’m a survivor, but the truth is, I only survived because he saved me. Even when he kept me locked in that room—he saved me.

Constantly wondering when and how you will die, that does something to you. To your mind. But what do you do when it does something to your heart? What do you do when the man holding you captive seems just as broken as you are, when his mere presence becomes a comfort you crave—when you love him even though you shouldn’t?

You smile and tell yourself it’s okay because love has no morals.

Sixty-four days in captivity gave me a love most people will never have and my freedom took it all away.
