a book in review!

Brief Summary:

Perfect for readers of Colleen Hoover, Jay Crownover, and K. A. Tucker, the first novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy kicks off an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.
Crazy how eight years can disappear in an instant. One look at Katie Watts, and I'm a fifteen-year-old again--the one who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. She's grown-up now--beautiful, quiet, composed--and telling her story to the world. A story that involves me in more ways than you can imagine. She used to call me her guardian angel. Sure, I risked my life, but she was worth dying for.

I need to make contact with her. Just to ensure that she's safe.

Somehow we reconnect. We become friends . . . but I want more. I want to make her mine. And she wants me too. Does she know who I am? Has she figured me out? Not yet. But she will. In the meantime, I need to make sure that whatever hold that animal had on her is gone.

So, yeah, I'm stealing these moments with her. Savoring them. Knowing, dreading, that she'll soon find out who I really am. And everything will fall apart. All because of that twisted, perverted monster sitting on death row. Her kidnapper. A convicted serial killer.

My father.

I love Monica's writing style so when I saw she wrote a two-parter (the this one ends on a cliffhanger so the second book is a MUST read.) and I had no plans on a Sunday, I was all in. This story has tons of drama and dark moments which make for a gripping read, but it has more than that. This story has heart, you will be rooting for hard for Katherine. What happens to her is heartbreaking and following her along on her journey really makes you think about what happens to victims of these sort of crimes. I recommend this 5 star read to anyone who is looking to get lost in a very well written page turner, xo!
