To go through the journey Claire went through with Brent grow into a grade A a--hole who got physical with Claire was terrifying. I felt the fear Claire felt when she wasn't sure what was happening to him. I felt terrifying sadness she felt when he did the final straw before she did what not many victims do and ran.
Then you have Zeke, brother of Rachel, there to catch you as you fall. I fell in love with Zeke right along with Claire. He was her knight and shining armor. In fact, his whole family was like her own royalty court there to help her and protect her.
The ending blew me away. Such a great way to end to the ride. I got all giddy and was smiling like a idiot as I read it.
Again, by far the best AJ Harmon book I've read to date and I've read them all. She's an amazing writer and her books show it.
When Claire moves in with Zeke she has a family picture and her mother's locket, which is great, however, when she ran she only had the clothes and jewelry on her body. Her mother's locket would not have been acceptable to Brent and I just wonder how she came to have these sparse possesions when she never went back to her former home. The next is that Claire confessed to hated PE class and had never even ran a like at Greta's grave. In the beginning of the book she worked out 4 times a week at the gym and sometimes went for a run to stay in shape. Just a few character inconsistencies. I also wonder why Brent didn't pursue her return harder or more actively. He is a man who is used to getting what he wants, and Claire slipped away relatively easily. This book was so-so for me, I had high hopes but ultimately couldn't get attached to the characters.
After one too many times at trying to explain his actions and the loss of a very good friend, she knew she had to leave. Of course leaving a man like that is never easy. With the help of some very good friends, she got away from him and literally started a new life. Learning money doesn't buy everything and certainly not happiness, Claire began to live again. I don't want to spoil the book but let me tell you, Claire's new life is so much more fulfilled. Even if her wardrobe is lacking, her life is not. Loved it......... by: Amy W.
I liked the way this author handled this subject by not only showing how the violence escalates, but also that Claire had her own reasons for staying rooted in her past. It was her choice to be with Brent, who offered her everything that her poverty stricken childhood deprived her of, so she could justify and rationalize the abuse. I liked having that insight as it often the question a domestic violence victim gets asked: 'Why did you stay?'
Then there was Greta's story. It added to the ominous feeling of the story. It was interesting to hear what she thought of the abuse. That was contrasted with Rebekah. She was a vibrant, regular woman, not part of Claire's social circle. In time, she became a potential lifeline and helped Claire to re-think her options.
For me, this was a peek into the abuse, the view of a victim, and the potential consequences. It was thought provoking, helped me to gain a level of understanding that I didn't previously have.
Then there was the romance that was starting with a guy who was the opposite of everything Claire thought that she wanted. Zeke, the mechanic,the regular guy, the one who made her stop and think that love might be worth more than the money. He was strong and hot enough to capture my attention. I really enjoyed how the romance had time to build before anything happened. Through Zeke, Claire had a chance to know how a man really treats a woman he cares about: with respect.
I recommend this because Claire has a choice to remain a victim or become a survivor, and her journey might help someone make her own choice. I was moved by this story and enjoyed it.
Quote from book:
"Love is not control. Love is not using your fist to get what you want. Love is not degradation and force," she choked. "Only cowards do that."
I read this from Kindle Unlimited, but I bought it because it's a keeper.
