The Goodbye Man by Mary E. Palmerin & A. Giannoccaro

blog break description.jpg

Dysfunctional empires were made to fall. 

I am Caesar. Broken and conflicted. I am a man who gives false goodness to those who crave it. I provide solace to the ones who beg to be saved, giving them the goodbyes they want. But, my quiet little world is about to be shattered by the whispers from heaven and hell.

I am Mateo. Unlovable and unworthy. I am the boy everyone runs from. I keep love close to me in little jars of perfection, reminding me of a thousand goodbyes I never had to say, because I left them before they could leave me.

I am Svetlana. Dirty and Used. Birthed into brutality while still trying to comprehend my version of normal. I am an injured lamb, eaten by filthy wolves day after day. Just as salvation seems like it's within reach, a goodbye from this awful world is all that I wish for.

Read the disclaimer people!! 

This is totally a 5 star book. Poor Svetlana, born into a nightmare among people who know no right. Then to be thrown into something more evil and dangerous than she has known. Will it be her salvation to be saved or will she get the goodbye she craves. I had a feeling there was more to Ceasar than being Svetlana's hero. This story twisted my mind in ways I don't think any book has. I just couldn't put it down. I needed to know what was going to happen next.This is a story that I shouldn't love. But I do and it is so wrong, and disturbing, but I LOVE IT! At times it is hard to say if I like the characters or totally despise them. It is a very thin line between love and hate. These two authors did a remarkable job with this book. I am excited and a little scared to get book two.
