I saw an advertisement giving awareness to Domestic Violence. Sharing books is my way of participating with awareness.
I didn't realize how many books I read on this topic, they have me on the edge of my seat in a different way that Thrillers and Suspense books do.
I recommend all of these which I rated 4 1/2 stars.
Beginning of my review..... The intensity in this book is non stop, shocking and many moments I realized I was holding my breath. I am so impressed this is a debut, well done BA Paris. I felt relieved at the end which isn't a good thing but my oh my, intense. The summary says we all know a couple like Jack and Grace, I sure as hell hope not. That thought is scary and very creepy, there are some things I will never overlook with friends now. I will give a warning, this is probably the worst kind of mental manipulation abuse I have read, it can be very hard to read if you are not into emotional intense reads. I found this harder to read them physical abuse.
Beginning of my review...... I would start out saying I was an emotional train wreck from beginning to end, deep breath. This is one of the most emotional heart wrenching dark family horror stories I have ever read but with an alluring character, Alessa, she made it worthwhile.
Part of my review............ Victoria has been in a verbal and physical abusive marriage and something so bad has happened she is now in a mental institution. The story is mainly told from her point of view, I never felt that she was crazy but couldn't wait to find out what really put her there. She couldn't remember and her Doctor was slowly showing her pictures to assist with bringing back the memories.
Part of my review....... I loved the 3 year span, Chapters about 2004 with her boyfriend, being swept off her feet to the destructive controlling relationship vs 2007 now living in fear that he will find her and this time, be successful in killing her. Both time periods were gripping and effective to moving the story along.
