Captivating! Gripping! Spellbinding!
I don’t know how to write a review on this book without giving anything away. It’s not possible for me but trust me you will not be disappointed when you read this. I’ll put the synopsis at the end of this review for you to get an idea. Alessandra Torre warns you at the beginning that she will push you to the edge but not over it and that is so true. She has to be one of the best authors out there that I know of and I can’t wait to see what she writes next and read her previous works that I have not had the chance to read yet. Even if there comes to a point in her books that you don’t like it or get uncomfortable, she has you so invested in what’s going to happen that you cannot put down the book. It’s impossible.
The last thirty minutes of the book left my heart sprinting for the finish line. I could not read fast enough. I wanted to cry. I wanted to skip to find out how this would end. I didn’t but trust me if you do you won’t understand what’s going on.
You definitely need to read this book. I don’t think anyone who reads it will be the same afterwards. It will stick with you and truly make you think. I had to tell anyone I came into contact with about it.
My only wish is that the ending wasn’t as rushed. I would have liked more but as you know if you’ve read my reviews I’m almost always wanting more.
This is not a story of servitude. This is a story of strength.
I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single, thirty-two-year-old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence.
I also hadn’t got laid in three years. Hadn’t been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup… a while ago.
Then Brett Jacobs waltzed in. Caressed my thigh, dug rough fingers into my hair, lowered his soft mouth to my skin, took sexual control of my mind and stirred it all around with what he packed in his pants. He flipped my quiet life upside down and crawled into a place in my heart I thought was dead.
The issue is his secret.
The issue is her.
The issue is that I don’t even know she exists, and he thinks she’s dead.
The issue is that shit is about to hit the fan and I can’t hold on to him tight enough.
Note to Readers: This standalone book contains themes which could be considered dark.
