Review: Binary Code by Rebecca Sherwin and Dawn Sidebottom
TITLE: Binary Code
AUTHOR: D H Sidebottom & Rebecca Sherwin
RELEASE DATE: 31st August 2016
Binary: Relating to, composed of, or involving two things.
Code: A system of words, letters, figures or symbols used to represent others, especially for the purposes of secrecy.
Everything comes in twos. His and hers. Mine and yours. Love and hate. Life and death. The world is made up of pairs.
So what happens when the line is blurred, when the rules we use to define our lives become…skewed?
What happens when the rules are broken? His and hers becomes his, hers and…theirs. Mine and yours becomes mine, yours and ours. Love and hate become love, hate and conflict. Life and death become a battle, an infinite number of risks swinging on a pendulum.
Carter cracked my code. He dug deep into the genetics of who I was and he rewrote every moment of my life. He forced his way in, reshaping every thought in my head, manipulating every instinct that kept me alive.
Yet, in doing so he altered the structure of his own code and broke every single rule he lived by. He was the encryption I couldn’t decipher, and I was the mystery that finally forced him to reveal exactly who he was.
This book contains adult themes, including M/F/M

I don't feel like I can do this book justice in a review...
Firstly let me say WHAT IN THE NAME OF HOLY HELL!!! :)
Sorry... but seriously. It has taken me a week to be able to make sense out of my notes and my thoughts about this book. How to write a spoiler free review... Here goes...
Wow... I think this has to be one of THE BEST books I've read this year so far.
Honestly I was left completely speechless. Which is fantastic when it comes to the book but a complete pain in the ass when I have to write a review.
After finishing the book I messaged both authors and a friend asking "How on earth are these two authors allowed to be walking around without proper supervision?" I asked this because I think they are seriously disturbed and it makes for some seriously talented and amazing writing. (I hope there's more from these two together). ;) <3
The plot is extremely well thought out and very cleverly written, the flow is seamless and enhances the overall depth. The twists in Binary Code are so unexpected and unimaginable, that I found myself more than once saying What The...
The characters are extremely well developed and exude so much emotion and feeling, they easily get under your skin and into your mind and heart. They interact seamlessly together and make you feel as though you are there involved and witnessing each and every act.
The authors... I've read everything that Rebecca has published so far and Binary Code for me was one of the best! Rebecca's work never ceases to amaze and astound me, as well as disturb me some more ;) I must confess this is the first time I've read anything by Dawn *hangs head in shame and promises to rectify this really soon* I most certainly wasn't disappointed.
Together these two authors have worked extremely well, I think that Rebecca and Dawn have created an extremely dark, twisted, raw, gritty, disturbing and intense story which will cause a mind-blowing mind-fuck of epic proportions.
My rating is a HUGE:
~Meet the authors~
~Meet Rebecca Sherwin~
Rebecca is a London born and bred mother, writer and psychology student. She is the mother of a superhero (who is currently growing his hair like Thor!) and spends her days with her nose stuck in a textbook, her fingers tapping away at the keys…or she’s building forts and eating gummy bears.
She is the author of dark psychological romance. An avid reader and lover of stories that keep you guessing, Rebecca writes tales that will challenge your perceptions and toy with your emotions. Her stories invite you to open your mind and dig deeper into the meanings of the lives of each and every character you meet. She entices you into their world – to feel with them, grow with them, to love with them. She asks you to become a part of them and allow them to become a part of you.
