#BookReview: Black Chuck by Regan McDonell


About the Book:


Psycho. Sick. Dangerous. Real Dufresne's reputation precedes him. When the mangled body of his best friend, Shaun, turns up in a field just east of town, tough-as-hell Real blames himself. But except for the nightmares, all Re remembers is beating the living crap out of Shaun the night of his death.

Shaun's girlfriend, sixteen-year-old Evie Hawley, keeps her feelings locked up tight. But now she's pregnant, and the father of her baby is dead. And when Real looks to her to atone for his sins, everything goes sideways. Fast.

The tighter Evie and Real get, the faster things seem to fall apart. And falling in love might just be the card that knocks the whole house down.

Notes and Opinions: This one I found had little plot for me. It really needed more of a story and a destination. At about 50% of the story it lot all amazinness it had and just pretty much fell flater than a dead rat. It had insta-love and was really just kinda all over the place once it got to that point.  It felt really weird to tell you the truth. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Really weird
