Paige Dawson: the mother of a murdered child and wife to a dead man.
She has nothing left to live for… until she finds her husband’s handgun hidden in their house.
Why did Ryan need a gun? What did he know about their daughter’s death?
Desperate for the truth, Paige begins to unearth her husband’s secrets.
But she has no idea who she is up against, or that her life isn’t hers to gamble – she belongs to me.
Let me start off by saying I’m not one to gush. Fair warning, this will be a very gushy review.
I started this book last night with no intention of finishing it in one sitting. I was simply trying to unwind for the night and read just a few chapters. Well, joke is on me because I completely devoured this book in less than two hours!
Paige is such a tragedy. She’s like a train wreck that you can’t possibly tear your eyes away from. She is so damaged and broken that it’s heartbreaking. She is at the very end of her rope and is clinging onto what’s left of her sanity for dear life. And who could possibly blame her? She’s been dealt some devastating and unimaginable blows that would break even the strongest of people.
I really want to talk about this book in depth, but alas I would spoil it for everyone. Let’s just say that it is shocking, twisted and addicting. One of the twists blew my mind. I actually had to pause from reading and let what just happened sink in. I even said, no effing way! out loud. This book has a secure spot on my must read least for this year.
Keep in mind, this novel is not for the faint of heart. It’s very dark and terrifying in so many ways, but Jordan is one hell of a storyteller and his writing is compelling and totally drew me in.
Overall rating: 5/5
