Cutting Through the Darkness by Ivy Love, My Review

banner for CTD by Ivy Love

Wow! Ivy love blew me away with this very, very sensitive subject and a somewhat taboo subject of things only talked about in hushed tones in the corner of the room while everyone else is having fun.

Five stars to the author just for tackling such a difficult and sensitive subject.


This book may trigger those of you who have had experience with cutting, molestation, rape and more. I do not suggest this book be read by anyone who is under the age of 18, nor by anyone who is a cutter, as this sometimes can cause a cutter to start cutting again once they’ve tried stopping; thus, a trigger effect.

Ivy introduces two young ladies who have had similar painful childhoods and they learn to lean on each other and support each other through the rigors of daily life.  While one of the girls moves on to try a new way of feeling pain, rather than cutting, the other is curious about how her best friend could have possibly found happiness in her life without cutting. She wants it. She wants to try to find the same happiness her best friend has found through a different method. So, they both venture into a world of BDSM and I won’t tell you more because I don’t do spoilers, but this book touched me on so many levels, pulling out all of my emotions at once and I simply could not put the book down.

Serious, humor, pain (in many ways), love, laughter and a little bit of romance. This story is rich and I highly recommend you traverse down this path of Cutting Through the Darkness with Ivy Love and her ability to create characters so real you’ll feel their pain as your own.

As I’ve said all along regarding this book, bring tissues and tequila because you’ll need both!!!

Great work, Ivy Love!!!!! Oh yeah, five stars on the incredible book cover you selected, Ivy Love! Just gorgeous! Introducing cover model: Tanna Lane.
