-JamieBob2˃˃˃ A great tragic story
This was a beautiful tragic story that ripped my heart out. The author did a fantastic job writing it in a style that I wasn't use to. Once I started I couldn't put it down. The author pulled you in and you felt all the emotions the characters felt. This was the first book I've read by Jennifer Sivec and I can't wait to read more from her.
This was such a well written story that at one point I wanted to actually stop reading to in some way stop the inevitable from happening. You became emotionally invested in each of the characters whether you liked them or not. This is one of those books you can't put down until you finish and even then....you want more!!!!! Totally recommend it and look forward to it's sequel!!!! I love Eva!!!!
-Suzy˃˃˃ It Pulls you in!
There was no way I could put this book down. It's not a feel good, sunshine and rainbows kind of story. It's more of a reminder that, for some, life is anything but. Eva is stronger than most women I know and at the same time she is still a scared, abused little girl who needs to be saved. Her story pulls you in and makes you want to protect her. I know that I will follow this series through to the end. Thank you Jennifer Sivec.
-Eedekay˃˃˃ Love, Loss
This book ripped my heart out! Abuse, love,loss, trying to survive life... You name it, it's in this book! It did take me a few chapters to get used to the writing style, as it is different than most. The character development is CRAZY GOOD! As you get further into the book you will see why all of the details are crucial to the story line. Definitely a five star read!!

-Brienna Schacklock˃˃˃ I Love this Series
I love this series.
This book pulled at every emotion I have.
My heart goes out to Adam. All he ever wanted was Brynn. He stayed by her through everything. The good, the bad and the ugly. He waited years for his love to wake-up. I can't say anymore or it'll give it away.
Poor Eva can't catch a break. It's hard without a mom. Even harder when she's right there and can't hear what she thinks, be there for her in every way like a mother should. She meets Chris, thinking Hey this is what I've been missing only to find out something completely different.
Nick is amazing. His love for Brynn never stopped. When he finally gets the guts up he realizes it and goes to see her only to find out she's in a coma from the accident. Still he try's to talk to her.
Jack comes in at the right time. He's handsome, sweet, and loves. He's not looking for anyone. It just happened.
This series is a must read. You won't regret it.
-Amanda Horton˃˃˃ Highly Recommend
Thank your lucky stars that you can get the whole series at once now. This series is amazing and highly recommend. I will try to do the final book justice with this review but if I were you I'd just buy the series now.
There's so many characters in this series but I never once got lost in translation. Adam is still plagued by guilt and Eva is trying to start her life out as an adult. The series starts with Brynn as a young girl and shows all the challenges and pain that she's endured. The pain and challenges continue and keep you turning pages. I don't want to ruin the series by giving anything away so I'm going to keep this vague.
Nothing is what it seems. No one is immune to the pain, danger and the suspense that keeps you connected to this story. Jennifer Sivec did an amazing job with series and I can't recommend it enough.
-UsedtobeCranky˃˃˃ Amazing Story

-Jersey Girl Book Reviews/Jersey Girl Sizzling Book Reviews˃˃˃ A MUST READ
God this was such an emotional and heartbreaking story. The author's writing is amazing and you really feel everything you read. This was definitely not an easy book to read. There are some really mean people in this world and this book made me realize that the world is not perfect, even though I wish it was. I was drawn in from the beginning and just couldn't put it down, I was emotionally drained by the end. These characters went through alot and overcame some things, but things from the past were always there in the background. The ending took me by surprise, I wasn't expecting it at all. I honestly believe the main character found some kind of peace by the end of the book. This was heartbreaking and sad, but so totally worth reading. I recommend this for everyone to read.
