4 "Captivating" Stars

The story begins with Jaye as a small terrified boy in 1978. Then it proceeds as a story being told throughout a timeline in alternating POV's. James Black tell his story as Jaye White and Scarlet Lockhart-Hollins tells hers as Rose Hart. I could hardly put becoming James Black down. I'll try not to post spoilers ;)

The heartbreaking tale that has brought these two together literally had me in tears! They both end up in an awful situation and Jaye does anything necessary (by anything I mean anyone lol) to secure money for when he's of legal age and is able to escape the foster system. I think his exact words were "the foster farm straight out of a horror movie". That should give you a good idea as to how bad it was. That is until her circumstances land Rose in the same farm house. Jaye becomes Rose's "guardian" right from.the start.

"Girls like her are rare and I want to help her hold on to that goodness and light."~ Jaye

As the story progresses, we follow Jaye and Rose and the very bumpy road the travel together.

"Jaye is my light in the darkness."~ Rose

For the record, their foster parents deserve a slow and painful death. Skye Turner somehow weaves the story so it feels absolutely real at times. I cry with these characters, laugh with the characters and ache for these characters. Poor Jaye/James thinks he is not worth anything and I love how they both open up through out the story and heal each other.

"I can’t let her think about me like I’m some prince. I’m not. I’m the fucking spawn of the devil and the things I do are not ok. Everything in me is dark and angry… Everything except my feelings for her." ~Jaye

Each character is well developed. I could honestly see spin-off novels for Hugo, Raquel and the rest of the girls. I love the way they all protect each other. I could read James Black and Becoming James Black numerous times ♡ Two thumbs up Skye Turner.. I really enjoyed this one
