You meet someone. You date. You fall in love. You marry.
The four simple rules of love….
Wrong! I’m getting married but I’d never met him before now, never dated him, never fell in love. I have no access to the memories of the most magical time of anyone’s life.
My mind won’t allow me to evoke the past, I can’t remember those simple stages to lead me to the fourth .
I can’t comprehend why I would have ever wanted to marry someone like Dante. I should never have passed the first stage, although, I may have seen him through the eyes of the woman I once was, this me that lives, breathes here now, can’t understand how we made it to the next stage.
I’m not sure, without memories, how I know that this voice inside me, telling me I would never have chosen him, speaks some truth, I just know. He’s controlling, arrogant, callous and violent, and utterly hell bent on humiliating and degrading me – Like watching me falter, watching me struggle to comply and be the woman he asked to marry, powers him- as though he wants to break me piece by piece. Fiber by fiber. Until all that’s here is the shell he created from a soul that I once owned.
Now my memories are slowly returning. And they show me a completely different side to meeting him. Our dates, falling in love. The Dante haunting me in the shadows of my mind is loving, gentle and utterly enamored with me, nothing like the man with me now.
And this is what taunts me. My tender lover turned into a debauched, cruel sadist who is determined to consume my life, destroy my mind and murder my spirit.
I am, Star, and just like with some stars in the sky, the light you see is an echo, a façade, I am already gone
I am a no one.
Especially to him. To him I am the dark in his desires, the corrupt in his depravity.
The sin in his immorality

Jaymee's 4.5 Star Review
Facade is a novel by Ker Dukey and D.H. Sidebottom and it is one hell of a dark and twisted story! I don't even know how to categorize it, its dark, erotic, suspenseful and quite a mystery. The story started off with a bang and only got better with each passing chapter. The entire time I was reading I felt like my mind was racing while trying to figure out what the heck was going on, I knew something crazy was coming but each twist was more shocking than the last. The entire book was a complete and total mind f*ck!
Since we do spoiler free reviews I really can't say, well, anything really about this book. Any reference to the plot could destroy the incredible experience of reading this brilliant and unique story! I will tell you that it is detailed, full of twists and turns, completely original and exceeded all my expectations. This is the kind of book where things are revealed and you can't help but just go "shut up, that did not just happen" over and over again. Several times I put my kindle down and just stared at it for a few minutes before I picked it back up and went back to devouring this crazy book.
Star was an amazing character in a horrible situation but one thing I really liked about her was that she kept fighting. She knew something wasn't right and questioned everything even though she knew it was dangerous. Dante was an evil, horrible man who tried really hard to pretend he was good but Star wasn't stupid, she had to depend on him but she didn't blindly believe him. She may have had no memories but she knew in her soul that the things he was telling her couldn't be true. Even with no memories she had a sense of who she was. When her memories started to come back things got even more twisted and confusing but then the ending was just..wow! It was worse than I had even considered, it was a total sick twist and one heck of a cliff hanger. I seriously can't wait for the next one, I'll be counting down the minutes until it is released! The authors must be some kind of evil, twisted geniuses to come up with this incredible plot and I can't wait to read more.
