I am a brother I am a police detective I am a contract killer I don’t want to love I don’t want to feel I don’t want … EMPATHY.
They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life. I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.
I was a daughter I was a student I was a victim Did I have his love? Did I make him feel? Did I have his empathy? When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.
Review by Gia:
I read one other book by Ker Dukey and loved it. So, when I saw new book by Ker, I know I had to read it. Empathy was great, I definitely was not disappointed. Writing a review for this book is hard because I don't want to give away any spoilers.
It's told in the POVs of Blake, Melody, and Ryan's. Melody is a college student who meets Ryan at school. Ryan is kind of weird. Melody world comes crashes down on her but she is a strong character. Blake is Ryan's brother. Melody is attracted to Blake. Blake is a little rough around the edges. The characters are so well written that they just pull you into the story.
This book blew me a away. There were twists and surprises I never expected. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't put it down until I finished it. This is one of those books were you should stop reading whatever you are currently read and read this one. It an amazing read and worth one clicking.
