Review:

*I received this book as an Advanced Reader’s Copy from NetGalley. All opinions stated are my own.*

This was a great book.

I read this author first book Baby Doll (which you kind find my full review of here) and knew immediately after that I wanted to read more from this author. When she announced that she was coming out with another book, I knew that I had to read it.

Thankfully, NetGalley was kind enough to let me get an early copy of it to review. I was so excited to pick it up.

It did not let me down.

I really enjoyed Kristy as a character. She was a really strong main character and I really enjoyed reading from her perspective. She was very brave to stay with Lance through the horrible abuse she was going through. I loved how she had the courage to pull through all of that and figure out a way to save her family and herself. I think she was just overall a great main character.

Not surprisingly, I hated the romance. To be honest, I was kind of a fan of it at first. I thought it was kind of cute and really added a positive element to such a dark book. I was shocked that Lance treated Kristy so horribly after they were married. I couldn’t believe the things that he was doing to her. I’ve honestly have never read a book about an abusive relationship, but to see what Kristy went through in this book and how she dealt with it in the end makes me very intrigued to read more.

The plot was also great. I think that everything that the author included in this book just worked together really well in the end. This book dealt with some very dark topics that are very present in today’s society. Everything just worked together so well. Yes I did have a hard time getting into it and I think the plot didn’t really take off until the middle of the book but it was still a great plot.

Overall, this book was an enjoyable read. Since reading both books by this author, I have become more interested in the thriller/mystery genre. I can’t wait to read what this author comes out with next!

RATING: 4/5
