Review ~ CREED by Kristen Ashley
Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.
They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.
With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.
I bought this book a couple years ago and left it on my kindle. A couple weeks ago I saw the audio was on sale and grabbed it. I’ve struggled with KA books because they’re very descriptive which causes me to gloss over all extra descriptions. But listening to this one worked for me.
When I first started listening I wasn’t into the story because I felt like I missing something. I figured it was because I was listening to it instead of reading it. Once the information started flowing in on the backstory (happens within the first quarter of the book) I connected to the story.
I got to around 85% thinking we were going to have rainbows & kittens but in true KA fashion this part of the book got very intense. My heart started pumping thinking about how this was going to end on a positive note. But KA never fails! And of course there’s the great KA epilogues that make you smile.
A word of caution – if cussing offends you then this book isn’t for you. The F word thrown around by both the female and male lead.
Overall, I enjoyed listening to CREED. I’m thinking listening to KA books is the way to go for me. And since this was “spicier” than normal I had a moment sitting in the dentist office wondering what the people around me would think if they knew I was listening to a sixty-nine scene. *lol*
Each anti-heroes has their own book.
