Every family has their secrets. Some deadly, some dark, some full of longing.
Beth's father John has been to her best friend Lily everything a godchild could ask for: a protector, a friend, a better father as her own could ever be. Lily and Beth have been best friends since they were born. They share every secret, apart from one: Lily, who is almost the image of her mother, has never been in love, never longed for a boy, because she feels she belongs to one man only: John, Beth's father.
The alleged car accident four years ago that put Beth's mother in a week-long coma, did not only kill Lily's mother's and Will's wife's life, but took from John his best friend, and first love. Now, when he looks at Lily, he forces himself to see his godchild, Will's daughter, Beth's best friend and not his second chance for true love.
**Warning: This books is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to explicit sexual content.
Wow! This book was very taboo, I just so happen to like taboo! I'm not really sure what to say without giving the plot away, I'll just say this isn't for anyone who has problems with an younger adult female (18) and older guy (37), having a secret relationship. I didn't have any problem with that, they are fictional characters after all.
It is very, man, I'm not usually a loss for words! This is very much adult content. Some would definitely say dark, seedy? I just have no words.
What I would have like to have seen in the book, is more from Beth and her feelings and reaction from the relationship between John and Lilly. There was not any reaction from anyone, really on this... no emotions. I guess when it is basically bdsm there isn't need for emotions?
I give Darkest Longing 3 stars
