I like dark reads... I really do. This was just in the wrong category and is not a dark read in my opinion. I struggled with this one a bit. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it and I think most of my rating comes from having it in my head that the book would be one way, but in reality it was far from my first conceived idea. I didn't fall in love with the characters. I didn't feel their relationship and it hindered me from digging into the book and not putting it down. I did put it down actually twice before finishing. This one might be for you, but it wasn't really for me.
