Deathly by Brynne Asher
I'm going to be perfectly honest with y'all. I went into reading Deathly completely blind. Scratch that. Almost completely blind. I didn't even read the blurb. Which is totally out of character for me. But this is a insta-1 click author for me. I knew without a shadow of a doubt I would absolutely love this book. And I was certainly not disappointed. What I didn't know was the amount of times I would need to physically remove my jaw from my lap. Buckle up buttercup. Grab the oh sh*t handlebar and prepare yourself for insane greatness.
Story Line: Okay, I promised I wouldn't recap so here is what I can tell you. Whatever you think this story is about, just know BA said "hold my beer" several times throughout this fictional wet dream. Usually I will turn to Mr Laundry during those naughty scenes and either ask him why he's not as hot at the hero I'm reading or tell him it's time to perform his husbandly duties. Now, don't get me wrong, this book also had those moments, however I'm pretty sure he became my one man support group by the end of the book. This story line is EVERYTHING I never knew I needed.
Interaction: When I say Alpha, the new definition is Brand from Deathly. He's literally the perfect man. If you're having trouble picturing him, hop over to BA's pinterest board because she gives you her muse and he is so many heart eyes. ALL the heart eyes. Brand and Aria are the perfect ying yang combination. So different. Yet so completely in sync with one another. Their chemistry is FLAWLESS.
Laundry: I was prepared to have to wait for the light my mattress on fire bits. But from the moment these two meet, you just know it's going to be hotter than hot. Can I just say, I would love to live in Brand's house? It certainly seems to have quite a few surfaces that can be put to great use.
Depth: I don't know about all y'all, but I went through a huge bag of popcorn, a bottle of wine and an embarrassing amount of my kids Easter candy while reading this masterpiece. Even at 2am when my eyes were burning, I couldn't put it down. Aria and Brand's story is so much more than a stellar romance. HOLY CRAP. The complexity of their stories is like nothing I've ever read before. I finished this book a week ago. And I am just now writing my review because it's THAT GOOD. I want to write all the words about it, yet none seem good enough. So I will leave you with this - Deathly will forever live in my heart as one of the best books I've ever read. Period. Exclamation point. Times a million.
