My Review

I completely forgot hot intense reading a Kristen Ashley’s book can be.

This book has been on my TBR for a long time because I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy it or not. I’m glad I took my time to read this story. I was able to savor the story much more now than I would have in the past.

Angie and Colt are a couple that the town where they live would love to see together. Problem? A humongous misunderstanding from the past broken them apart and gluing them back together is more difficult than just talking about what happened.

The set of characters in this book was amazing, and I mean all of them. The depth of each character was fascinating. I felt like it was realistic, grabbing, relatable and just beautiful. Yes, I said beautiful, even with the amount of death in this book the story is absolutely beautiful.

The writing was remarkable. What I can tell you is that having read Deacon by the same author, this book and the way the male characters talked, remind me a lot of him. Short sentences, to the point, sometimes it could look like a caveman and others it could sound so sweet with such a minimum amount of words.

Twists and turns were at every corner of this story. I thought I had figured out who the obsessive stalker was a couple of times but I was wrong. By the end, I was really ready to kill him if necessary.

I would say you need to read this book. As the explanation of what happened in the past is revealed you will be shocked. My jaw almost hit the floor at various points of the story.

Romantic suspense is a perfect category for this book. Kristen Ashley is becoming a master of writing books with such depth that just becomes one of those authors you have to read.

About the Author

Kristen Ashley is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

She grew up in Indiana but has lived in Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she’s been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least), but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, living in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
