The premise was very intriguing. Creepy? No, not really. Interesting to be exact. I read it in one seat, and could have done it in less than an hour if I didn't have to do anything else. The story flew seamlessly and quite to the point.
My only objection, one that took 1 star from my review and one I really hope to get better in the next books, was the self-pity attitude of Kate. Yes, she had through a lot in her life, which why I hoped for her to be a stronger person. A woman who could inspire those who read. She's just too weak here, and I believed her unworthy feeling here was unfounded. She's loved by her mother, her mother's friends, her friends, and now her step-family. With those reasons, I think this could actually be a clinical depression case and could be used to raise awareness of the issue. IMHO
Kate is being protected financial, physical and even emotional by someone in some definition you can label a STALKER . At first I am relating with all her fear .
Who can it be ? Well he harm me or kill me ?? I now know it's not my father! Then who is it ???
My favorite author is now tipping her literary fingers in Intrigue romance . I'm so in love with this introduction and I'm immediately grasping to part 2 .
Thank you Lane Parker / J.S Scott .
I am not too fond of the come on kind of language that is used to get the attention of the female main character. I tend to feel that during the scenes where they are actually getting it on it could be a tantalizing element to the dialogue. Some would be turned off to the course implications that go with that kind of come on. All I can say is that is just my opinion. If there were deep feelings for the female, that guy might have been a little more romantic in the pure sense of the word instead of so coarse.
However, I find this novel to be enticing and have also read book 2 and 3 in the series. I think I will leave a final word until book 4 is available and I have had a chance to see how it ends.
KATE aka KATIE (22) broke my heart with her situation and determination. Having already lost her mom, Katie’s deadbeat dad finally croaks after supposedly paying anonymously for her undergrad education. She deserved as much, since he left his first family in poverty to marry a rich widow with two sons, Ben and Ian – both unknown to Katie. At the funeral, Ben offers his unlimited help because Katie is all on her own now with no money, no job, nowhere to live, and no hopes for grad school. But, Ben isn’t the only one interested in Katie or helping her. She may have an unidentified stalker who could be the same guy she had a steamy encounter with in the dark before disappearing.
The story follows a clipped pace with alot to set up and makes us ponder the stalker’s identity and motives. There are some clichéd descriptions during sex and proofreading issues, but I was very much drawn into the creeper mystery and suspense of Katie’s plight. She’s vulnerable and needy right now, which is a dangerous combo, and she might not be able to trust her own intuition. The story is somewhat fantastical, but romantic, in a Beauty & the Beast kind of way and I empathized with Katie’s situation. She’s curvy, but plain, in her own eyes and attractive to no man because no one has made her feel otherwise. On top of that, there’s no one to worry about her. To any critics who thought she was too self-pitying, the truth is that they don’t really know what it’s like to survive poverty and loss in a constant daily struggle, and be all alone in every way at such a young age. It’s not a normal situation and you have to walk in someone’s shoes to pass judgment. Having no family or place to turn can be understandably soul-crushing on a deep level that I wouldn’t make light of for anybody. MY heart broke for her.
The situation may not seem all that mysterious, but it is. You may think you know who the stalker is. Maybe. The devil is in the details. And, don’t cringe over the stepbro angle – they aren’t blood relatives. Their parents were simply married to each other. I’m more than excited to see where the series goes – to learn more about the stalker whose motives appear very honorable and protective, not creepy and devious, but time will tell. It has a modern fairytale feel and, anyway, let your imagination flow – it’s fiction, not real life. FYI: Know that the series used to be split into 4 parts (books), but the entire book can now only be bought as a complete series. The author has long been a favorite of mine, but somehow this series under another pen name eluded me until now, and I’m glad I finally read this first book in the 4-part series.
I typically don’t care for cliffhanger stories and usually avoid these books but I totally enjoy this author’s work and will read whatever she writes.

Let me tell you, she really didn't disappoint. I felt real empathy for Katie. Losing her mother and then her deadbeat dad. Feeling like you are all alone in the world. Ms Scott's writing is able to take you on a very emotional journey. And just before you think that the story is just going to be a spiral to the nadir, there is a scene in the boathouse is hotter than lava.
I loved this book and I will definitely be buying the rest of the series. Enjoy peeps 😉
Kate is a student trying to finish her college but unexpectedly her dead beat rich father dies and she goes to funeral.
This is were she realises her totally alone at 22 with both parents dead. That’s where her fantasy man finds her and seduces her taking her virginity.
That’s when she finds out her mobile was given to her by her ‘stalker’ not her father.
Her father walked out on her and her mother and also didn’t send financial help, which Katie step family was very annoyed about.
Part of me found this a bit weird but now I’m hooked and I’ve got to find out who the ‘Stalker’ is.
I didn’t mind Katie character but she didn’t see her stepbrothers or stepmother as family even when they gave her a place to live and wanted to help while she was trying to finish school and find a job but she’s really reluctant to take help and personally comes across has harsh and ungrateful at time.
This audiobook is done with duel narration and I absolutely love that the female narrator does the female parts and the male narrator does the male parts. The narration is really great and absolutely love duel narration
Stalker, when we hear that word we automatically think danger. There has been some serious cases that have turn pretty ugly over the years. But what if someone stalks from a distance just to make sure you’re alright, would that be okay?
I actually think I may know who the Stalker is, but I’m giving nothing away. Plus I could also be wrong, and that means my detective skills are lacking. Detective Jo who’s never wrong, could become slightly embarrassing.
Katherine, Kate, Katie all one and the same person is in for some surprises that’s for sure. She’s already had a very pleasurable surprise. Christ, I thought I was the one in the boathouse, wishful thinking. Maybe!! Still not sure, I mean come on she’s being stalked. Should she freak out, and tell the police? Should she see what happens next? I mean if you’ve read this story then your going to be thinking, maybe it’s a little late to call the police.
The Blackwood brothers sound delicious. Ben seems really sweet, and hot, I’ve yet to meet Ian Blackwood. I have a feeling he’s going to give me goosebumps with just a look.
Part 2 is releasing this month, and I am whooping all the way till it goes live.
I thought the chemistry was off the charts
Great read i cannot wait for book two
