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 am going to admit, I decided to read this one because it sounded like another book that is one of my all-time favorites. I went in all prepared thinking it would be one thing but I quickly learned that I was so wrong and it was a hell of a lot darker, more twisted, and more emotionally heart breaking, stomach knotting, tear inducing than I ever thought it would be. If you read my reviews you know I love darker reads and not a lot bothers me, but Fear Me really brought up emotions and feelings I didn’t think possible.
The relationship, well I don’t know if relationship is the correct word for what Keiran and Lake had. Keiran was sadistic in his torment of Lake, from the very start you know that this isn’t your typical bully or enemies to friends romances, it is much darker and much more unhealthy. I wanted Lake to stand up for herself more than she did, she could go off on everyone else but when it came to Keiran she would allow him to plow over her and just break her into pieces. Even when Keiran found out the truth about Lake’s involvement he didn’t stop. What he does to her throughout the entire book is sickening, dark, heart breaking, and fuck me I am probably sick in the head for saying this but it is also a dark erotic form of foreplay and the sex was over the top hot.
I couldn’t put this down. I had to know what was going to happen next and then that cliffhanger had me screaming in outrage cause by that point I was craving Keiran’s dark side like an addict craves their next fix. Luckily I had the next book waiting for me to start. Fear Me isn’t a book for everyone, please take the author’s warning seriously because what she says is the truth. If you want something darker, something more sadistic, then Fear Me is the one you need to read, you will not be disappointed, but you may be a tad disturbed after especially if you loved it.
