    1. Christine Wallflower & Dark Romance Junkie on said:

      The sky is shifting colors from a pinkish-orange to purple-black, and all I can think about is the way Tawny's head sounded against the glass. Hard enough to knock her out and yet not enough to break the window. I wonder how hard I'd have to hit her to make it shatter. Carter is an abused teenager, it's all he knows. He vows that he'll never become like his father, and when he sees Tawny, he sees his salvation in her.I guess the signs were all there, but the guy tried so hard! But

      3.75 Upsetting StarsThis is a fast paced short novella which is told in the all male pov of Carter Brooks. The story takes a teenage Carter, a victim of domestic violence through meeting and marrying Tawny Owens.”Promise me something?” Tawny asks. Black mascara stains her freckled cheeks.“What?”“We’ll never be like our parents. We’re not drug addicts or alcoholics. We don’t beat each other. We are not them. Promise me: we’ll never do these things to our kids.”Being in the hea [...]

      This book should definitely come with trigger warnings for anyone who is sensitive to domestic abuse.It's no secret I love this author's writing. For a short prequel this book packed quit a punch. The story was interesting, engaging, suspenseful and definitely a page turner. The book begins with Carter, who is an abused teenager living with an abusive father and is told from his POV. The book covers a period of 10 years as we learn about Carter and Tawny's life together from the time they meet r [...]

      4 starsDAMN! Damn! damn! WTF did I just read, for a shortie this packed a BIG punch! How the hell did everything turn to shit??? I guess the whole, we are a product of our parents no matter how much we don’t want to be, rings true because the more they fought it the closer they became to being their worst enemy. The transformation of hate to understanding was very well done. "We'll never be like our parents. We're not drug addicts or alcoholics. We don't beat each other. We are not them. Promi [...]

      "I yank her up by her hair and land a blow to her jaw." **Deep breath**This is a tough review to write. I'm a self proclaimed angst lover and adore reading books filled with drama, intensity and tear-jerkers. This book however is down right painful. I uttered so many oh my gods and clutched my Kindle as this agonizing story unfolded. Its about 37 degrees outside, and this book managed to make me sweat."I want to slap her and kiss her all at the same time. I don't know how she does it."I'm a firm [...]

    6. Brandi on said:

      Damn. That wasinful. I don't even know what to say. This is not a happy story. Not at all. Abuse, is such a freaking vicious cycle.

      My heart is broken, my brain conflicted, my mind…fucked. About to go take a nap in a dark place. Carry on…

      5 oh my god stars!! What a BITCH of a fucking cliffhanger!! I can't even put into words how fucked up this book was in just the 63 pages it had. I want to kill this bastard, beat him like he feels he should beat tawny.Full review to come i need to process thisOK so it's been a day and im still thinking about how disturbing this book was. If u can't get what this book is about by my gifs then I'll elaborate.Carter has had a fucked up up bringing,his father was a drunk and thought of him as a punc [...]

      3.5 Disturbing StarsWell written short prequel to. The Finish My thoughtsAs a teenager Carters story is depressing and sad. Growing up in a family where your father terrorises you and your mother must have some kind of effect on him. For years he keeps his secrets from his friends.Then he meets Tawny, he is so drawn to her and they fall in love.But Carters demons keep returning to the surface long can he keep them under controlThis is a well written story about domestic abuse within the family.I [...]

      Oh my God! That was one of the most disturbing things I've read in awhile. I feel sick to my stomach with how that story developed and panned out in the end Wow! I can't even imagine what the next book must be like. The character development was absolutely insane for such a short book (view spoiler)[ The complete transformation of Carter was so very well done. He began as a teenager who was developing difficulties with his anger and despised his father for his abuse. He was all the while struggl [...]

      Oh my God what did i just read!!This book was shocking and made me tremble, even cry a littleSo real and disturbing being in the mind of a hero who is going to do something unforgivable.I can't believe we have to share the air we breath with people like him I can't comprehent it Tawny was strong and witty and funny, beautiful inside and out temperamental and feisty and he made her a hideous replica of her selfWhy couldn't he be happy? He had a great wife, a nice home, a fulfilling job, away from [...]

      Jointly reviewed for : totallybookedblog/Jenny: Wow! What the eff did we just read G? Didn’t this book do a number on me! Whilst this may have been a short story, it certainly packed a punch and completely knocked me sideways. I was drawn into Whiskey and a Gun from the very first paragraph and was transfixed in horror until I finished it.We had NO idea what to expect with this one but the synopsis sounded intriguing so in we went. I have to say this is one of the most real, disturbing, sicken [...]

      No! WTF did I just read! I was so downhearted with the story of Carter and Tawny. Shocked at the way Carter behaved towards Tawny; I really did not see that coming. I have to start reading the 2nd book, like NOW!!!

    15. Taryn on said:

      Not for the faint of heart. I absolutely loved this book! I cannot wait for the next one to come out! I NEED IT NOW!!

      ****4 Cortitas e intensas STARS****Es raro leer un libro de abuso desde la perspectiva del abusador, que a su vez también es víctima. Es complicado ya que a pesar de lo horrible que se comporta, escuchar sus pensamientos te hace entender las razones que lo hacen actuar, lo cual me llevo a justificarlo y odiarlo al mismo tiempo. Me muero por leer la continuación.

      WOW!This left me shattered!We'll never be like our parents.We're not drug addicts or alcoholics. We don't beat each other. We are not them. Promise me: we'll never do these things to our kids.Whiskey and a gun is the prequel to The Finish, which will be published this year. It's only 65pages long, so not even an hour to read. BUT Eby took me on a roller-coaster of emotions and left me with much to think about.It's written from Carter's POV and gives you a good insight to him. His hopes, his view [...]

      3.5-4 heart crushing stars. I am all about the angst, the build up, the heartbreak. I love the intense feelings that transpire through the pages but this book. FUCK! It was almost too much to handle. Carter grows up in an abusive home. His father beats up on everyone in the house, targeting his mother. Escaping from his home for a while, he meets Tawny. Tawny's household isn't any better. Carter is drawn to her and they quickly fall in love. They promise each other they wont be like their parent [...]

      HOLY SHIT! I don't think I've ever read a short novella that has left behind such intense emotions like this one did. It completely caught me off guard. It may be only 63 pages long but it can only be described as heart breakingly sad and shocking.Abuse should never be a subject to ever be taken lightly but a book like this, while depressing to journey through, does show that it truly can become a vicious cycle.It's told from the POV of Carter Banks who we meet in 1998 as a teen and discover rig [...]

    22. ❤ Tila Grey Maddox ❤ on said:

      What a gut wrenching book!!*Spoilers Alert*Omg it's so heart breaking reading about domestic violence. I was disgusted & heart broken when I was reading this book. I felt like jumping inside & killing carter with the things he did & say about tawny. He doesn't want to grow up like his father, but that is exactly what happened when he married tawny. It seriously killed me when I was reading what carter did to tawny, all the things he promised her he wouldn't do, he ended up doing it a [...]

      WOW I don't know that I have ever read a prequel or novella that has sucked me in so quickly and made me FEEL in under 100 pages.I am seriously dying to read the Finish now!!

    24. Cath on said:

      4.5stars. Disturbing. Sad. Certainly not hearts and flowers. But very we'll written and I will definitely pick up the next book for sure.

      SInce this isn't out yet--I didn't put any spoilers in review! :-)Okay, before I say anything about the book itself, let's talk about that beautiful cover. It was that coupled with the freakin' awesome blurb that caught my attention. I think Eby is genius in the way she crafted the blurb. It is really evasive and yet compelling all at once. Definitely makes me want more!Now, onto the book. I came into this story not really knowing what to expect, and man, was I surprised. Y'all know I love fuck [...]

      Sometimes you read a book that brings to light the harsh realities that some have to face in life. Sometimes you read a book that makes you feel so many real, raw emotions; feelings and thoughts you can't completely express because you're so torn about them.This book, as short as it was, did exactly that to me. You get introduced to Carter and Tawny when they're in high school and every new chapter skips 2 years into the future. The book is from Carter's pov so you get mostly his back story. He' [...]

      Well, well Jade Eby. You caught me a little off guard here! I really wasn't sure that I'd like this. The title kind of threw me off initially, but the summary sounded interesting so I thought I'd give it a read. I was surprised to be captivated by this story right away.This book takes a look at the dysfunctional dynamic of an abusive relationship. We meet Carter as a teen from an abusive household who despises his father (the abuser). He falls for Tawny, a tough as nails pretty girl from the wro [...]
