It’s Danny here today sharing my ….
Super Six “borderline” Books
Books were maybe a MC that was hardly good nor evil, or a storyline that pushed border, or something else you define for yourself as “borderline”.
I actually had a lot of fun with this topic and I read quite some books that I personally would define as borderline and I actually love books that push borders a little bit. Maybe even make you uncomfortable for a while!
Oh this book most definitely pushed the Good Vs Evil Border quite a bit! River is a character that we have a hard time putting into one drawer. He’s definitely one of the good guys, still we feel drawn to him and hope for some redeeming qualities between all the madness! The book was amazing and tells a story that holds a cruel fascination with evil and I can’t wait for the next book!
Ah. Karen Marie Moning one of my favourite Authors ever She’s been know to push the good vs evil border in the Fever series with Barrons – but I think Iced is even more delicate. In ICED we have a 14 year old Girl who behaves in one minute like she’s a mid 20s kick ass fighter and in one minute like a little girl. Then, there are men and yes, these are men not boys who seem to have a weird fascination with this girl. I know that it made many people uncomfortable, but this also holds the special allure KMM’s books have for me!
Fault Line most definitely made me uncomfortable, a lot! But, I found this book to be insanely brave and outstanding. Fault Line deals with rape so horrible it makes me cringe even now thinking about it. And it deals with coping, not healing but just coping with what has happened.
Oh Cruel Beauty most definitely again plays the good vs evil game so very well. The demon lord most definitely is a cruel creature but then, there are soft sides about him and we find ourselves constantly wondering about him and trying to figure out his real motives and thoughts.
Jus Accardo knows how get us delicious boys, yet in RUINED she went into a path that I really loved even more. Playing with the Cain and Abel story, mixed with some demonic mythology, Ruined plays with evil and good absolutely amazing. If we would see Jax only from another POV we would not believe a second that there would be something good inside of him, because all we see is anger and something evil inside of him. But there is more to Jax that meets the eye and I loved figuring him out!
Oh how much I freaking loved Crow’s Row! In Crow’s Row we deal with Mafia like structures and cruel crime bosses and suddenly our heroine right in the middle of all this. So, can we deal with our girl falling in love with a crime boss? Drugs and Murder are something we will face while reading about their developing love story. Seriously! It’s such an amazing story, once that clearly pushes borders and definitely belongs to my list today!

I am a total whuzz when it comes to controversy in books. I don’t even like love triangles. I think I have enough to deal with IRL, so I like my fiction to be sweeter than life – lol (does that make sense?).
I loved reading your mini views on your six picks (which I haven’t read) and I have to say that I am intrigued by CROW’s ROW . . . maybe I should take a chance on that one. 🙂
Okay seriously? All these books sound AMAZING! After Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, I immediatly opened my TBR list and added it. Then I read about Iced and had to go back to my TBR list and add it.
Before I know it, all six books you mentioned are now added to my TBR list. They all look amazing and I can’t wait to get to them. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Would you believe I haven’t read any of these?? But I want to read all of them. I remember your review of Crow’s Row. That was like the first NA book or one of them that you recommended. I still want to read that one! Great topic!! I would have thought the Sweet Evil books would have made it onto this list, but I haven’t read them yet so I don’t know for sure. I should read them, right?!

I love borderline books. You go through so many emotions as you read. I’ve only read Crow’s Row from your list but like the blurbs for two or three more you have on there.
