Wow, wow, just...wow. I don't even know what to write.
This book kept me on my toes the whole entire time
. Just when I thought 'okay, I know where this is going' it went in the complete opposite direction. I was in a constant state of surprise.
Anthony Rawlings has had his sights set on Claire Nichols for quite some time. Anthony takes her captive and now, Claire has to try to earn her freedom. She's presented with a series of test and consequences for her actions.
I don't know whether to say that Claire was strong-willed or weak. She was strong in the sense that even though she was beaten, raped and verbally abused, she always found something to be positive about. She didn't let everything that was happening break her. On the other hand, she barely fought back. I could somewhat understand why, but I still wanted her to challenge Tony. She was also given more
than plenty times to escape and didn't take it. I was chanting 'RUN, RUN, RUN' but, of course, things don't go my way.
I kept thinking, GET WITH THE PROGRAM, CLAIRE. Sometimes, I just had to put the book down and get my emotions under control.
Anthony Rawlings is known as a handsome and charming to the whole world. However, behind closed doors he's controlling, sadistic and incredibly cruel
. I felt like he was on the razor's edge of sanity. There were times when he was sweet and kind-hearted and just when I was about to test the waters... the giant great white shark that is Tony chewed off my leg. Then he'd go back to being all nice and act like there wasn't anything wrong. He was psychotic.
Even when things seemed to be good... they were a little too good
. I felt like I was watching the calm before the storm. And when the storm came, it brought a freakin' category five hurricane. It was so unexpected. I was thinking of all the things that could possible happen and that
it. To say it was a shock would be an understatement. I felt like my brain had disintegrated. And if I thought I had hated him before, it was nothing
compared to the hatred I feel for him now.
And of course, why not add to my pain and end the book with a cliffhanger. Just awesome.
