Review: Disengaged by Jamie Magee

Disengaged Disengaged by Jamie Magee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book gets 5 stars for the simple fact that it kept me on my toes, kept me guessing, right until the end. I never knew which side was up. Every time I thought "Phew, that was close" or "Okay, road to HEA", some other messed up stuff happened and I was blindsided. By the time I finished this book, I realized that everything I thought I knew, I didn't.

This was the first book I ever read from Jamie Magee and it definitely won't be the last. Keep these coming girl! She's found a new fan in me!

This author wove a tale full of darkness and depravity. A story that shone a light on the deviant, the corrupt, and the immoral. You would think all of the evil and wickedness portrayals would be depressing. Because these sins occur in our world EVERY DAY! But no, the author injected just the right amount of doctrinal information and gave her characters enough faith, that you couldn't help but be hopeful for them, despite the horrors and atrocities they faced.

This story was about Ember and Slayton, who were once strangers and became each others saving grace. Their road wasn't easy and their path wasn't without much sacrifice. But their love truly seemed to overcome all obstacles. Somehow. I believe their ending was perfect... for them. Their HEA wasn't paved with rainbows and unicorns. Their pain and suffering didn't just disappear in the face of a happy ending. They had to deal, mourn, adapt, and embrace the new life and new chance that they were graciously given. It was raw and it was honest and I absolutely loved it!
