 “The scuttling spiders come closer, closer, and I flatten myself against the wall of our cinder-block hiding place. Cold pipes against my chest. Moist stone beneath my hands. The net almost strangling me.”

Better than sliver fangs buried in the flesh of my calves. I Shudder.”


“He squeeze me so tightly I can barely breathe. Soft, desperate words are whispered against my skin, and even though I don’t understand them, I think I can translate. You are alive. You are here. You are mine. 

This book was actually pretty darn creepy! Which makes sense when you realize that it’s a Phantom of the Opera inspired story! And the fact that it’s in a slaughter house. And there may or may not be a ghost. Oh and spiders…/I shudder, too.

Oh and the romance in this boooooook. It’s so bittersweet.

 The nursery door opened, revealing Charlie in nightgown and ratty braids.

“You’re all up past your bedtime,” she said. “May I stay up too?”

A pale, furry blur shot between her slippered feet, directly into the warmth of the nursery.

“There’s the little bas- blessed bunny!” Spathfoy roared.

A general melee followed, when seven grown men and one little girl trying to crowd through the doorway at once. (86% eARC Kindle)

It’s time for a holiday romance! So this one definitely has it’s cute moment (as seen above)! It’s easily one of my favourite scenes in the book, the bunny besting seven grown men, muahaha. Anyway, hopefully a review for this soon.
