As a reader I so look forward to a new release from Leanne Davis. Her books are the most emotional, gut-wrenching tragic stories. You know from the first page you are just going to have to hang on for that emotional ride with the characters as they go through their heartbreak and fight to overcome it right up until the last page.
If you haven’t read the first book in this series I recommend you do before reading this one. Lindsey Bains was the good daughter all her life not knowing the monster she had for a father. She always did what was expected of her so she would never disappoint him like her sister did. In a lot of ways she was very naïve to the atrocities men committed. Even when she found out all the things her father had done to her sister and she denouncing him as her father she still managed to make a colossal mistake with the man she married. She went from one monster to another.
This book shows us an inside view of domestic abuse. Lindsey was in such denial and also suffered from feelings she deserved it from the guilt of what happened to her sister. I love how the writer chooses non-traditional romances in her books. I loved Noah. He was such a different type of hero nowhere near the strong beat on your chest manly alpha’s we typically read. He was a good hearted small country veterinarian that had no idea of the evils that men do to women. He was absolutely the right guy for Lindsey even if he didn’t know how to help her most of the time.
Fans of this series are in for a shock to in this book.. It was great.. Also there was a surprising laugh out loud moment that was most unexpected as humor is not something you typically get from this authors books.
I have read every book this author has released and have loved every one of them. I look forward to reading more from this very talented author.

Words cannot describe all the emotions I went through reading this book. It’s very rare for a book to bring me to tears but the story of Jessie Bains is so heartbreaking and shocking in the atrocities that were done to her. She was violated in almost every way imaginable.
I think you get what the books about from the books description and telling more than that would spoil the experience of reading this gut-wrenching emotional rollercoaster. But this book isn’t typical as far as a romance books go. This book is about a 20 year old who has had to suffer more than most do their whole lives. All that pain has turned her into a broken person that abuses her body in so many ways to deal.
The author takes us on the journey of the healing of Jessie but not before taking us with her to her rock bottom which was an extremely hard scene to get through but yet written so realistically.
There is an unconventional love story during the course of this book that takes place over years. I totally respect how the author didn’t make it a quick romance. After what Jessie had been through there is no way that would have been conceivable or even believable.
Its always a pleasant surprise when I come across a book like this, one that touches you so deeply your left thinking about even afterwards.
