By DC Renee
This is going to be one of the most difficult reviews I've had to write up to this point because at the heart of this book is the storyline. This particular storyline truly makes the book. So I'll say what I can and hope you'll pick up the book despite the dismal, minute details I can provide.
Told in 3rd person, we're introduced to our two main characters, Declan Connors and Megan Verona. With this perspective we are able to climb in to the minds, personalities, and lives of each of them. These two couldn't be more different; even in the same city they live worlds apart. Declan is a war vet who now works as a therapist, the very therapist that Megan is referred to by Declan's mentor, Chuck.
From the very beginning the relationship between Declan and Megan in DC Renee's A Brutal Betrayal is not anywhere near the patient/therapist relationship. In some ways, therapeutically this is just what they both need to struggle with their inner demons. As they try their hardest to not blur the lines between them, there's also a lot of healing taking place.
This is as far as I can go, I think, without spoiling the book for you. Although there were questionable moments throughout, the writing and editing were well done. The two main characters
Again, in closing I want to apologize for not writing a more in-depth review of a book I did truly enjoy. This is not the way I like to handle things but the storyline in this book is a detour from the norm. My hope is that you'll give it a chance because it really is worth it. And once you see how worth it the book is, I hope you'll pass it on to others as well.
