|Convict, Hayley Faiman
This was my very first read by Hayley Faiman and it will most certainly not be the last. I am actually happy to say I own two more of her books already and can get started on it straight away.
The book was 100% not what I was expecting. I knew little of her writing style or the series going into it besides the cover and the blurb. Both of which, to me, make Convict sounds like a dark romance. That is not what this is at all. It is passionate, suspenseful, and the main characters backgrounds is a little dark. But it is not a dark romance. It is really really sweet. Rylan and Channing are perfect for each other in every way.
Guilty. ExCon. Felon. Prisoner. Criminal.
Words that now represent me.
Words that keep any decent person away from me.
I never gave much thought to words before now.
Slut. Hussy. Whore. Homewrecker. Jezebel.
Words that now reflect me.
Words that will stay indefinitely.
The evidence of those words grow inside of me.
Those Words make the entire town assume they are vindicated to use them.
I am wrong.
They are right.
I do think that because of the insta love this is not going to be for everyone, and usually I only like insta love in my paranormal romances, but it was ok here. The story would have dragged without it. Rylan and Channing make sense. Their pasts fit, their present fits.
Both made some very bad choices in their past with terrible consequences. He has paid for his, even tough he does not believe he has. She is paying for hers. Their story is unconventional, different, and so very touching.
All secondary characters were engaging and interesting as well. I am so very glad I have the next book because I think Wyatt's story is going to be just as touching.
Highly recommend this one!
