Love Hurt: The Killing of Rose by Holly Hood

In a world forever obsessed with the idea of love lurk creatures straight out of legend—mythical beings that really do go bump in the night.

In a small town located in rural Arizona there are two brothers that are not quite human. They have a deep, dark secret.

For Sam and Frankie life is a constant battle. Love for these two is more than long walks on the beach and those butterflies in your stomach—it’s a blood bath. Sons of an incubus father, they are destined to a life of self-destruction, and staying one step ahead of the law is about all they have to be thankful for. That is, until one of them thinks they’ve finally found a love worth fighting for.
Sam believes he has found his true soul mate. Only problem, if Sam can’t control his urges, being with her just might kill her.

Then there’s Frankie, Sam’s brother, who lives a life of destruction. Women are nothing more than a pastime for him. Life is nothing more than drinking and finding his next victim. In order for Sam to save his soul mate, he must find the strength to overcome his adversity…or no one will come out alive.

How far do you go for the ones you love when love can destroy everything?

Reviewer: Fashionta
This is the darkest book by Holly Hood that I've read. It's about two brothers who are incubus and their adventures. I didn’t like the male characters, I didn’t like the angle she took with them. Their father was an incubus but they have a human aspect due to their mother. One of the boys fell in love with a girl called Rose, but when he proposed, she rejected him and his demon tendances took over. A few years later, he's engaged to another girl, who happens to be the best friend of Rose.

I couldn’t get into this book, as much as her other books but as usual the book is well written and planned out. I love her writing style overall and the cute two to three words chapter names instead of the usual chapter one, etc. I have to give this book 4 stars and note this YA 18+ because of the themes in this book.
