"I feel like I am wrapped in a cyclone. Everything is whirling around me, drawing the air out of my lungs and filling me with the best kind of turmoil. Every time his tongue slides against mine, a prickle in my gut tells me how right we are together. How much I need David. How much I need us.
I hope the cyclone never stops.
Emma Searfoss has spent a lifetime trying to escape her abusive stepfather. It's why she moved far away from home. It's why she's kept no ties with her remaining family. And it's why she's got a major rage problem. When her neighbor shows up to fix the kitchen in her new apartment, his enigmatic charm calms the fire in her. David is cool and collected, and he makes Emma feel safe for the first time ever. But David has his own chilling past—his six previous girlfriends have all disappeared without a trace. Emma's walking a dangerous line, but David's pull is intoxicating. And impossible to resist…"
Oh, boy... What was that?
I am so happy that I got a chance to read Push by Claire Wallis - not only that it has completely unexpected and fresh premise in the ever growing pile of new adult novels that get to be published every day, but also it has that twisted and dark feeling that I love so much.
Why should you read it?
If you are in that group of readers that thinks how we need more diversity in new adult genre, I think you'd appreciate this book. I seriously do not know with which book to compare it because I have never read something like this before but I believe that everyone who enjoyed TV shows like Dexter, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Six Feet Under - storylines that feature a lot of weird plot twists and anti-heroes we should hate, but end up rooting for them.
You will stay up until the wee hours and anxiously bite your nails off (I do not recommend that you do your manicure before reading this book - you will ruin it). Some things that you will read will leave you completely speechless and you'd wonder are you crazy or or characters or the author.
Apparently, this is first book in the series.
Do not panic! Everything will hopefully be explained and we would get more details about Emma and David. I can't wait for next novel and I really hope that you will join me in my fangirling over this rather unusual story.
