Review: CONSTANT by Rachel Higginson

Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.

Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared.

Five days ago I thought I saw him.

I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me.

He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving.

Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about.

Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy.

Five minutes ago, I saw him again.

Five seconds ago, I was too late.

REVIEW


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This new-to-me author gave me a wildly entertaining new-to-me kind of story. I was captivated by Caro and Sayer immediately and now that I’m at the end of this first part, they still haven’t let me go. The author wrote about their past with such clarity that I felt like I was reliving each moment right along with them. The tensions amidst the crew and each character themselves, the constant con, the politics of the bratva, the developing emotions between the main characters, their forced servitude and desperation for escape, the dynamic of the bratva versus their blossoming relationship, and the eventual ‘run for our lives’ all made for one heck of an intriguing read.

So why didn’t I give this amazing book 5 STARS? It all comes down to Caroline and her decision-making. I’m all for getting out of the game. I was applauding her for escaping all the way. But what I couldn’t get down with, what I couldn’t get behind, was the lies and omissions she fed Sayer. He didn’t deserve it. It was like she was completely blind to how he felt and what he was willing to do for her. I couldn’t believe how obtuse she was. I was so in love with her character for much of this book, but in the end, I absolutely hated her. She was still keeping the biggest secret of all and when he found her after five years, did she come clean? Did she beg for mercy? Nope, she acted like she was the one who was wronged. AND SHE DIDN’T REVEAL ANYTHING!! Not one peep of truth from her until she needed him to fix things for her. To save someone they both love more than anything. Kiss. My. Teeth. I wanted Sayer to let her go. But I’m sure that’s not going to happen so I hope she smartens up in the next book. And I’m off to read it ;)
