I don’t believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.
I believe in fear.
He taught me how to be afraid.
We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn’t be the last. For ten years, he’s been my tormentor and I’ve been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet I was still afraid.
Now he’s back and wants more than just my tears. You see…he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge…and he knows just how to get it.
PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS. This book is a new adult and contains rough elements such as harsh language, mild violence, strong sexual content, alpha male, antihero, blackmail, and dubious consent.
Fear Me, in all, contains sensitive themes many people aren’t able to swallow.
I just finished reading Fear Me by B.B. Reid and I must say it is one of the darkest books that I have EVER read.
Keiran Masters had been enslaved and abused for the first seven years of his life and trained as a killer. He admits to making his first kill at the age of six. Among his early kills was a little girl, Lily, who was being starved and beaten and would have been trained to do horrible things, had Keiran not killer her to save her. He also killed a woman who he later found out was his mother.
At the age of eight he goes to live with an Uncle and sees a little girl, Lake, trying to help a smaller boy down from a jungle gym and he pushes her off and she is hurt. Thus begins the the ten-year obsession he has with her-hurting her, humiliating her, taking away her friends, hurting people she cares about and stealing her virginity. But he cares for her too but has a very hard time showing it. He has never been shown any form of kindness. Lake, is scared to death of Keiran but eventually falls in love with him and then due to events beyond their scope of responsibility, he says he has to LET HER GO. Lake can’t believe that he is discarding her, just like that. And to make matters worse, she finds out her parents, whom she thought had abandoned her, had really been murdered. The end took my breath away!
