Oh Avelyn how I have missed you. I have been waiting ever so patiently for this book and I am thrilled to finally be able to get it. The wait was worth it and Avelyn has once again delivered an wonderful book. I truly think this book is the best one yet.
The story line while heartbreakingly sad is also one that will bring hope to many. Neither of these characters has had an easy life but Ricca has by far been dealt such an awful hand. Needless to say she has a ton of trauma to overcome and she has to learn to trust. She gets a call that is about to change her life and the path she was planning to go down. Will it be for the best? Will she be able to let others in? Will she be able to let others help her?
Ratchett saved Ricca and is determined not to just save her the one time but to help her with the road she was headed down. He wasn’t able to save someone who was close to him and he is deteremined to do it this time. The fact that he wants her to be his is just another reason to do so. She is the light in his life and he will do anything to make sure that light is always present. Problem is he has to find her and convince her, never expecting to find what he does.
I highly recommend this book. It can be read as a standalone but as someone who has read the others I recommend those as well.
stupid fucking mantra to keep the memories at bay. Every morning starts like
this. Sure, maybe I did need go back to my victim group counseling sessions,
but I knew the Kumbaya mentality they used couldn’t help me. The demons in my head
were of my own creation, and they were never just going to go away by telling
others who thought they were like me about them. I couldn’t forgive the men for
the things that they did to my body and even with their deaths, my mind would
never be able to see the world the same way. They took the last shred of my innocence
out in that desert, and it was something that I was never going to be able to
get back, even if I had ruby red slippers, clicked my heels, and said it three
no matter how hard I hoped he would be, Ratchet was definitely not Prince
Charming. The knight in shining armor isn’t real, and
he was never going to ride a horse to my tower of terror.
