5 out of 5 stars
Neverland is the second “romantic thriller” I’ve read by Melissa Jane. I read Monsters incredibly fast as I couldn’t put it down and the story really stuck with me. There is one scene in particular that had filled me with chills that I can still picture now months later. When I saw Neverland I couldn’t click the download button fast enough.
If you read the synopsis it will state that this book isn’t not all rainbows and butterflies and that there are triggering topics throughout the storyline, I would consider this a thriller with a touch of romance. As the synopsis warns, this is a dark story but one that is so, so well written.
I love the narration of the story bringing us back and forth between present and past and slowly unraveling how our main character got where she is. It truly adds to the element of suspense. I struggle to type a review that does this story justice as I don’t want to give away any spoilers. It is intense and intriguing from start to finish. Melissa Jane has a talent for creating a dark, twisted tale that leaves you haunted. I loved how this story came to a close and will say I was a little surprised by the ending.
With the warning that this story contains triggers for some kept in mind, I would recommend this to anyone that loves a suspensive, addictive dark story. I read this book within 24 hours, it was incredible.
