4 stars ☆☆☆☆
Darker, grittier, and more twisted than its predecessor, Pretty Lost Dolls does not disappoint! K. Webster and Ker Dukey will have you biting your nails and holding your breath as this brilliantly written, suspense filled story unfolds. Told in multiple POV, we get to experience everything through the eyes and minds of Jade, Dillion, and Benny, and I loved every mind reeling, stomach churning, heartbreaking moment of it!
Though I enjoyed every character’s perspective, Benny’s was definitely my favorite. Learning what made him into the monster he is and delving into the deep recesses of his mind was the most fascinating part of the story for me. The flashbacks from his past were gut wrenching. I know we probably aren’t supposed to, but I actually felt a little bad for him. When you think about it, as much as he may have turned Macy into the sick and twisted freak that she was, the same thing was done to him. If anything, he had even less of a chance than she did. At least, she had a normal loving family for part of her life. He never had that. Not to mention, he was isolated from the rest of the world most of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I still think he needed to be held accountable for what he did. He is a very disturbed man that has done inconceivable, disgusting, and heinous things to innocent people.
“I do know the difference between right and wrong, but I just like the way wrong feels. It’s an impulse, an urge more intense than anything else.”This sequel picks up where Pretty Stolen Dolls left off with Jade back in the clutches of her delusional captor, Benny. With his favorite dolly back in his possession, the demented dollmaker has no intention of letting her slip away again. He thinks that if he could get her to see how much he has longed for her and how deeply he cares for her that she would stop trying to run away.
"She starts to cry hysterically and a smile turns one side of my lips up. God, how I missed the sweet sound of her despair."Benny is elated to finally be reunited with his dirty little doll. He is torn between wanting to hurt Jade and love her. Heartbroken by her abandonment and infuriated by her naughtiness, Benny inflicts his own brand of love and punishment on her.
Dillion is losing his mind with worry as he imagines all of the horrific things Benny is doing to Jade with every minute that goes by. He will do anything to track Benny down and get back the love of his life. Jade searched for Benny for years, but she was still never able to get close to him. Does Dillion actually stand a chance of seeing Jade ever again?
“Is he punishing her, raping her, killing her? I’m going out my ever-loving mind. My own thoughts feel like the enemy right now and I just want to roar all this anger, remorse, and fear out of me. He took my girl. This motherfucker is going to die.”Pretty Lost Dolls is phenomenally written, well-paced, and gripping from beginning to end. I honestly couldn’t have asked for more in a conclusion. The authors have expertly crafted one of the most intriguing, intense, dark, and suspenseful thrillers I have had the pleasure of reading. If you liked the first book, move this one to the top of your to be read list! If you haven’t read either one of the books in this series, but you are a fan of thrillers or all things dark and twisted, what are you waiting for?!
