small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held
against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected
me and kept me safe as best he could.
me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him
in the hands of a monster.
I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.
Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to
be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a
young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.
Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.
But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me
close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him
again. I was his to keep after all.
Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale
was only just getting started.
It’s dark and twisted.
But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.
A love story. Our love story.
This book is the first I have read by this author, although yes, as she warns, it’s very dark it is almost mesmerising too.
Robin is a grown woman with a traumatic past which is where she met Jay. Having escaped from this horrific imprisonment she leaves him behind never knowing his fate.
The lead characters are incredibly affected by the trauma of their youth but how they respond is very different. I really felt heartache for Robin and Jay knowing that they had suffered yet even though the author only gives us glimpses of the trauma the allusion is very powerful.
This is a moderately paced book, however, a little short even with the prequel at the end. I felt that there could have been a touch more added even if it was in the prequel.
Living with a monster disguised as a human being is dreadful but even worse when the victims are children. I was made aware of the vulnerability of being in the wrong place at the wrong time with this story and how quickly our lives can change.
