"This book deals with sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers."
Ooh, I had to decompress from reading this before I tried to write a review. Lily White has become one of my absolute favorite dark romance authors, and The Five is now firmly solidified as one of my top 10 favorite dark romances. This story is told initially from when Justin meets Rainey, and then goes into flashback mode to explain everything that's happened up to when they finally meet. And trust me when I say the story is so mind bogglingly insane, I had to step back from the book a few times in order to regroup. So many layers and twists and turns, I gave up trying to figure out how things would play out and just sat back and let the story take me along for the crazy ride.
