He said it would only hurt a little …

On her sixteenth birthday, Sleeping Beauty pricked her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. On my twenty-second, I pricked mine on the needle of a tattoo machine wielded by a beautifully complicated man who would go on to become my ruin.

Madden Ransom was everything I was never allowed to be: unfeeling, opinionated, rebellious … free.

He was also everything I was never allowed to be with.

And while Sleeping Beauty fell into a peaceful slumber as she awaited true love’s kiss, I fell into something else entirely—my heart in the hands of a man who’d never given nor received anything remotely like love.

It turns out when Madden told me it would only hurt a little … he didn’t mean the tattoo.

Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw is a bona fide daydream believer. She lives somewhere in the middle of the USA and can rarely be seen without her trusty Mead notebook and ultra portable laptop. When she’s not writing, she’s living the American dream with her husband, three kids, and the laziest puggle this side of the Mississippi.

My Review…

There are so many things I loved about this story! First off, could not put it down…to the detriment of my sleep and my higher order functioning, I had to keep reading!

This story of Madden and Brighton was fantastic and felt so real! Brighton was truly a butterfly in a gilded cage. It was refreshing to see her come into her own. Her poise, honesty and generosity was beautiful both inside and out. I admired her ability to say what she wanted to say. Her truth would set her free.

Madden is such a broken soul. He has stories aplenty, but will not share. He is closed off and distant. But his history is heartbreaking and made me want to hug him and hug him hard.

This story has a twist that you won’t see coming. To me, those are the best ones! This story has some realism too, that I appreciated. I don’t want to spoil the story but let’s just say that there is a scene, a potentially steamy scene, that was honest and actually really original that really moved me!

This story is going to be in the running for my “Favorite Reads of 2019” and it’s not even the end of January! That’s how much I loved this story!
