Daddy is a man Mia meets online. He gives her advice on how to self publish a book she is writing. A bond is formed between the two via online conversations. During their first face-to-face meeting, strange behavior from both parties is displayed. "Daddy" probes into Mia's mind without success which I thought this was different. Is "Daddy" psychic? Who knows as the picture painted regarding his journey in life is left unexplained at this point. As Mia relaxes, she breaks her mental walls and he tells her she is safe, then she breaks down. What's strange, is after meeting this man in person for the first time and moments into a conversation she sits in his lap while he sooths her. When it's all said and done, Mia leaves with "Daddy," moves in with him, and never willing goes back to her previous life.
My favorite part of Mia's Journey was reading the one time I felt Mia's strength and I yelled "yes". She finally stood up for herself with vigor. She had the balls to put fear into her husband.
"Jeffery Lionel Prescott, the third?" His first stopped in mid-air at the mention of his full name. She said it the same way his mother said it, like it was the mark of nobility and privilege. "I'm only going to tell you this once. But if you ever touch me again, I'm going to cut your dick off when you sleep, and feed it to you when you wake up." He looked at her eyes and saw she meant every word of it.
In addition, I also enjoyed the quotes provided at the top of each chapter from people around the world. In my opinion the quotes were strategically placed and gave insight to what was to come.
Mia's Journey is a cat-in-mouse game of "Daddy" protecting/keeping her safe from her past and Mia's husband tracking her down and dragging her back to his side, or in some instances loaning her out for brutal sexual abuse. This book had a lot of scenes with inconsistencies and/or the ideas conveyed were not fully actualized. So many little things bugged me that it took away from my overall enjoyment. I'm glad I read the book to the end but overall Mia's Journey was not a hit for me. If "Daddy" was flushed out more, the overuse of the name "Daddy" and Mia's childlike actions/questions were curtailed, and if fine details made more sense maybe I would have felt a connection to characters and enjoyed this read more. But as it stands, Mia's Journey left me unfulfilled and desiring a cohesive journey into utopia.
Mia's Journey is an extremely dark, abuse filled story of a young woman's journey to find happiness. If you are sensitive to rape, specifically anal rape and what could happen this is not for you. Mia's Journey gets 2.5 lackluster stars.
However, having said that i did have a few issues with this book.
I couldn't get past her calling him "Daddy". I know she was looking for a father figure to love but it was just creepy. I kept picturing a little girl in my mind. The only way i was able to finish reading was to keep changing the name "Daddy" to something else.
I was also surprised by the ending. I won't give it away but i'm still trying to figure out what the deal was with Monk. For me, there were so many different ways this story could have ended.
Overall i did enjoy this book
Not for the timid but I am drawn to books that make me feel emotions that are not normally
felt in my every day lifestyle.
I am going to re-read the book and make note of all the quotes that lead into each chapter as there are many that pertain to the world today.
Some by Thomas Jefferson that are particularly timely. History repeating.
Enjoy this journey and beware of the need to suspend belief in a few instances (why Mia just didn't disappear during 10yrs of driving, school, etc?) but the ending is HEA in spite of all the exciting events.

I can't say I hated this book, but I didn't love it either. I know writing a book has to be difficult; building a fan base must be worse.Read more
