This book is absolutely INSANE and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it!
I was really into this story and I was sure I was going to rate this book five stars when I reached the middle of the book. The reason why I didn’t do that is because the story got too crazy by the end and that’s where it lost me. I’m not entirely sure of this, but I feel like this may be one of Colleen’s first books. I say this because you can still tell this is a story written by her – because the drama and the romance elements are there, just like in her other books -, but it’s very noticeable that she was still working on her writing!
With that said, I was really into the romance and how dark the story was. It was so stressful to see how the main girl was dealing with her current situation and how helpless she was – but in a good way, because it was what grabbed me to the story.
It was a rollercoaster of emotions, and even though I didn’t love the second half of the book, I couldn’t put the book down until I finished the story! It’s a very graphic book and it deals with very serious topics such as rape and violence, so I would recommend it only to older readers – be aware of those triggers if you are sensitive to those specific topics.
