This book was way grittier than I expected.

The opening was OMG – emotionally wrecking and pretty much makes you wonder for the rest of the novel what it meant. That alone is so very ALY MARTINEZ!!! She writes brilliantly and when she grabs you, your are hooked no matter what.

I really liked the topic, it was different, outside the box, and really edgy. It made for an emotional read. Complex, layered, and immersed with so many secrets I didn’t know what was what – and I loved it!!!

Unfortunately even though I enjoyed the book, I wasn’t as invested with the characters or their story as I was with some of her other books. Cora was way more trustworthy than the situations warranted. And I don’t want to start on Penn. I can’t go into details because that would spoil the plot but boy – he did a few things that I didn’t like and it tarnished my view of him.

I also thought that the story felt disjointed a couple of times and didn’t make as much sense. It wasn’t as brilliantly thought through as the author’s Sunset/Sunrise duet – which was the epitome of AWESOME!

Nevertheless, I’ll be reading the second book ASAP – because the ending was OMG – WOW!! That’s all I can say! Which of course guarantees that I’ll be one-clicking the second book as soon as possible.

Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.

Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.

Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.

Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.

iLie: I was only there for a fresh start.
lLie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
!Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.

But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.
