“No, Rainey. Let me look at you. I love looking at you. Even when I close my eyes, all I see is you.”

I dropped my arms, my legs trembling. This was Rowan, the sweet, kindhearted boy I loved. Yet, in that moment I feared him. The adrenaline was wearing off and I was suddenly so cold.

His lips parted as he stared at me, those blue eyes I knew so well slowly taking in my body as heat blazed behind them. He’d grown so large, twice my size at least, and it had never occurred to me how strong he was until now. Nobody would pick on him anymore. Not without getting their asses handed to them in a fight.

“Can I touch you, Rainey?” His eyes lifted to mine. “Is that all right? For me to touch you?”

“Always,” I whispered, unable to put any strength in my voice. “You can always touch me.”

He stepped forward and I stepped back out of instinct. He would never hurt me. Not Rowan. But what I saw in him now was the predator that had always lingered just beneath the surface. He wasn’t a monster like his family or David. Not him. He was something else entirely.

Pain shot through his eyes when I moved, his hands fisting at his sides. “Do I scare you now?”

Shaking my head, I forced my mouth to move. “No. It’s just – ”

“Just what?”

“You’re different, Rowan. A man, I guess. You’ve grown.”

Blue eyes held mine, the darkness in them seeping away, but not entirely. His lips pulled into a tight smile. “You need a man. I’ve become exactly what you need. For you, Rainey. Not anybody else. Just for you.”

I drew in a rattling breath. “Touch me.”

Rowan moved forward and I held my ground, craning my neck to look up at him. He was shaking, his skin so cold that I knew I had to fix him somehow. “Rowan?”


“Will you kiss me?”

Whew! This book is a head trip! Right away, you're sucked into the case where Rainey is being seen as both victim and suspect in the murders of people she is acquainted with. The tale that is told by Rainey is both heartbreaking and masterful.

While reading this, I couldn't decide if I should keep reading or stop. Everything about Rainey's life is a train wreck. And I think that's putting it lightly. She can't help what is happening to her any more than she could have stopped from falling in love.

The tale is thrilling, sad, maddening, and most of all, twisted. I really enjoyed watching this story unfold. And while I did see the ending as somewhat predictable, I didn't think that it took away from the story being enjoyable and riveting.

This story is not for the faint hearted. It's brutal and cruel, crazy and sad. But it will keep you reading until the end.

This story was a mind blower. I couldn't get enough. I had to know Rainey's full story. It was dark and twisted, manipulating with a love story weaved throughout.

Lily White keeps you on the edge of your seat with this page turner. The way this story plays out you feel guilty for finding it erotic, but you can't help yourself. Rainey's story is so twisted and unbearably sad, but she did what she did to survive. She's the victim and the puppet master. This review is probably one of the hardest to write, so many spoilers that can't be revealed. You'll thank me later for going in blind. It's the best way to get through this tale and oh, what an epic tale it is.

This is a very addictive, disturbing, and in spite of itself, deeply erotic story. I dare not say much more for fear of making any comments that will spoil the story for you.

It is written with great style and as we travel backwards and forwards through the story, one's sympathy and concern, shock and horror go up and down like a yo-yo. It is brilliantly plotted, and every page adds to the whole in a very satisfying and disturbing way.

Enough, go grab a copy and be ready for all the emotions.

The Five by Lily White was a uniquely dark, depraved, exciting read!

When Rainey Day is the #1 suspect in a grisly murder, state psychologist Justin has to evaluate her ability to do something like this.

I loved the way this story was told: we're in the living-room with Justin and Rainey and are transported into the past to experience every. single. moment of the insanity. Each new detail has you second guessing what you think you know. Every nuance of the story makes you wonder.

Deep down I didn't want to enjoy the story, but I just couldn't put it down, then I didn't want it to end! This is definitely my #1 Dark read of 2019.

If you like your romance on the dark side, if you enjoy depravity like no other, and erotica doesn't turn you off, then I highly recommend giving The Five a read!
