Thanks for your feedback!
it will make you feel a whole range of emotions*** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy reading them - kat*** Ok I have deliberated and written this review (on paper) 3 times and scrapped them all. This is the 2nd Lily White book I have read, and I knew it wasn't going to be a fairytale from that first offering Wake to Dream - I will say I am glad I have read this book, I think its good to get out of your comfort zone and read something that is not all fluffy bunnies and rainbows - and WARNING this is no Romance story - it's got sex in it, yes, it may have two people who from attraction and circumstance they become attached to each other, but Romance, NOT IN MY BOOK. The storyline is brutal, vengeance is the key goal for Elliot our main Male lead character. Why did I give it 4 stars, well this was because at the end I was not happy on how Ms. White ended it, I did not think Maggie should have gotten the ending she had. She may have been innocent as a child but in my book, as an adult, she knew perfectly well what her depraved family did, and she did nothing to stop it. Also the scene where Eliott faces his wifes abductors had parts that I thought were dubious - as in how a trained soldier would forget something that he did in all the other cases, to ensure someone was locked in a vehicle, I am sorry that I can't say anymore as I do not do spoiler reviews, but I did let the author know, so maybe this could change? OK I am just going to say how this book made me feel, It had me stuck to my kindle, waiting for Maggie to do the right thing, to grow up and stand up for what is morally right... I can honestly say I did not like this heroine no that word is wrong, main female character... she is no heroine, is she a victim? Well I had a very hard time trying to decide that and I am still on the fence. You can think Stockholm Syndrome, but in the end she made her choice, Family instead of what was right and just, and another life is ruined because of her actions... so I know these characters are not real, but she didn't deserve to...to enjoy life... ?? see I said I was having a hard time with this review. I just hated Maggie for her selfishness... Well that's just hard for me to get? Agh this is so hard to write without spoiling the book! OK Elliot... for 80% I was with him and understood his focus, his life was literally hinged on finding out what happened to his family, and he had no desire to continue after that happened, and I got that. If what had happened to his wife and child had happened my family, law's be (think of an expletive), I would be the worst vengeful (again can't put my word due to Amazon policy) the world would have seen, and after I had gotten my revenge I would have been done, ready to leave the earth for whatever came next. And he was so determined to do that, he was using Maggie to find out more information, and yes I could understand his attraction, his reluctance at the growing feelings, and his need to save her... ( to have something good come out of all the horror) but when she chooses her family instead of him and justice... and he ends up forgiving her. Well, let's just say I would have preferred a black final ending where both didn't go off into the sunset, and this is why in the end I gave it a 4 star. Does Lily White write books that grip and enthrall the reader... YES, and I have only read 2 books yet I realise that she has the skill to make the reader see more than just words on a page. I am still 5 days later thinking about this book, trying to write a justifiable review to the feelings it evoked in me - and probably failing! Do I recommend this book - YES, but be warned it will make you feel a range of emotions, from rage to despair and all in between. I guess I could end with what I said to Lily's Agent, this book is more like Real Life, rather than a Fairytale. There are monsters in real life, there are those who deserve a HEA that because of those monsters are denied it, and I guess there are those who find a HEA even when others feel they don't truly deserve it when they were culpable in the horrors of her family.by Kat S. on March 03, 2017
