This has got to be one of the worst books I ever read. Maybe it…
Complementary Colors by Adrienne Wilder is a book that was recommend to me by a friend, and wow am I glad that happened. This book is something different, and I could not put it down until I was finished and know what happened. This book is one of the most fantastic books I read in quite some time.
Paris is a well known artist, loved by millions and a very well known name in the art business. But what no one knows is that Paris is a very unhappy man, manipulated by his sister Julia and kept under tight control with the help of drugs, alcohol and physical abuse. All Julia cares about is his paintings, the money she can get from them and to whore him out to who ever is willing to pay.
But then Paris meets Roy Callahan. Former criminal and doesn’t know the first thing about art. At first Paris thinks he is just another one night stand, soon to be forgotten. But he just cannot seem to get Roy out of his head. He knows he will never be good enough for Roy and Roy would be better of without him. And somehow they cannot seem to leave each other alone.
Slowly but surely Paris starts to trust Roy enough to slowly reveal the ugly truth about him and what he has been hiding for so long. Will Roy still want him after he knows all there is to know? And is there any way to get away from Julia and her control over him?
This is a different kind of love story and certainly not for the average romantic. Lots of violence, rough sex and abuse of all kinds. But if you manage to get through that, it is one of the greatest love stories I read in a long time. Very very highly recommended…..
