Release Day Review - One of Many by Marata Eros & Emily Goodwin



Do Not Read This Book:
If you do not wish to read about hard topics, or you're under the age of 18. If you want a feel-good, sexy read, this is NOT the book for you. One of Many is part dark romance, part suspense thriller, and is a gritty, harrowing tale about finding love in the darkest of places. Read at your own risk.

When we had nothing, The Community gave us everything. When we were lost, Father Weston welcomed us home. For the last five years, we've been preparing for the world to end in flames. Then I was Chosen to join the other wives in the big house on the hill. And in that house, I would learn the truth.
There is no damnation. I am no savior. And the only way out of this cult is to trust the one person I've been forbidden to talk to. Kiev, Father Weston's son. But Kiev only wants one thing from me, and I must prove to him I'm not one of many blindly following his father's lies.
If I don't, I won't make it out of here alive.
My father ruined my life. Took everything from me and never looked back. For years, I've been waiting to strike, to pull his false empire from under his feet and watch him burn.
Then he chooses her as his newest Virgin Bride. She's special to him, held in higher regard, presented to the entire community as a symbol of hope, a symbol to make them keep buying his lies.
My father took everything from me. Now it's time I take everything from him. And I'm starting with her.

"The heart is a merciless bastard of deceit, whispering its lies until belief turns to something else. Love."

This is the first book I read by the authors. The religious cult aspect really piqued my interest when I read the description of this book. I didn't really know what to expect so I pretty much went in blind. Right away I was intrigued by Kiev the son of the cult leader. Kiev and his father are the polar opposites of each other. Kiev is back in the community to bring his father down, he wants revenge. He is a bad boy with tattoos and an attitude. 

"My love ended up being more important than my hate. A first. An always."

From the first moment Kiev and Audrey meet there is such an attraction between them. They just can't stay away from each other. Kiev first wants to use her to bring his father down, but eventually develops feelings for her. Audrey is a strong character, I expected her to be more scared and brainwashed but was really happy that wasn't the case. She doesn't blindly follow Father Weston.

I did think that Audrey fell in love pretty fast, so I would've wanted that to develop more slowly. There are a couple of scenes that will be hard for certain readers to read, I am used to dark romances so these scenes didn't really bother me that much. I enjoyed the writing and the plot but I wanted this book to be longer. It ended a bit too fast. However I did enjoy the epilogue!
