Review - Smother by Lindy Zart

Title: Smother
Author: Lindy Zart
Release Date: May 12, 2015

You won't like me.
I am not the nice girl. I am not your friend.
I don't care about you, but most of all, I don't care about me.
Go ahead, hate me.
We all have secrets.
I have them as well—dark, terrible secrets.
The only time I can breathe is when I forget.
I need to be numb. You don't want to know how.
But as long as I can breathe, the past cannot smother me.


Smother is such a powerful, intense story! It is raw and gritty, full of darkness and emotion. It consumed me.

We meet Reese…

“the one forever desired but never loved.”

Reese has been dealt a shitty hand in life, and is on a downward spiral until she meets Leo.

“Leo was the artist, but he was also the art. He didn’t draw – he felt what he was doing.”

Leo is a tattoo artist who has also had a rough life. He sees something in Reese and is determined to help her, even if she refuses to help herself.

“Because whether you want me to or not, I care. I care about you even if you don’t.”

While a man of few words, Leo is protective and will do anything for those he cares for.

Smother shows us that from darkness comes light. There were some twists in this story that I was not expecting and it kept me glued to my Kindle, needing to know what was going to happen. My favorite parts of the story were at the start of each chapter, where we just got a small glimpse into Leo with his few sentences.

Ms. Zart sure has a knack for writing heartbreakingly beautiful stories, and I look forward to more of her work.
