The Synopsis:

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DAMNABLE GRACE’ (Hades Hangmen Series book #5):

*May contain Character Spoilers(Not story Spoilers) if you haven’t read the previous novels of the Hades Hangmen Series.*

The completely dark and gritty Hades Hangmen MC Series continues with the fifth installment titled “Damnable Grace” by the always amazing and talented author Tillie Cole. This series continues to deliver such depth, raw-emotional dialogue, and a captivating story-line that can break your heart one moment, then revive it fully the next. As always, I will do my best not to ruin any of the plot twists or spoil any of the big moments for you readers. It’s best and more fulfilling to experience it all on your own. This novel follows one of the wild Hangmen trio known as “AK” to his MC brothers and it also follows the cult sister Phebe. The story is written from the three character’s P.O.V.’s (point of views) of Phebe, Xavier “AK” Deyes, and some from Flame.

The Hades Hangmen MC Brothers are out to rescue the sister of one of their old ladies and to bring down the the twisted group who has imprisoned them. The MC must face off against the ruthless Aryan Brotherhood clan that has descended to their part of Texas. AK can’t seem to get the beautiful cult female with the red hair out of his mind. As he and the other Hades Hangmen MC brothers dig deeper into finding out where Phebe is, they discover the very dark place they’ll have to go to in order to bring them down and rescue her. How can they do this dangerous mission without suffering too many risks to the MC? As they plan, it seems  likely that they’ll have to infiltrate in order to bring their sick enemies down.

Phebe had one duty for the commune which was to lure and entice new men to join the cult by seducing them. That was until the cult gave Phebe to their business associate by the name of Meister. The evil and violent commander Meister now owns her in his controlling and terrorizing ways. All Phebe can do is hope that those that she loves are far away from this hell. Will Phebe ever escape her current hell or will she die under the pain she lives daily? How will her past touch her present life and will the truth of that past be destroyed along side of her?

Flame is still Flame. The only person that has been able to break through his dark exterior is Maddie. His newfound little brother Asher means a lot to him since he was found but Flame isn’t familiar with normal feelings and expressions of those feelings. He continues to struggle to get closer to his brother, his only family outside of his biker brothers. With the troubles the Hangmen find themselves facing, he may face that moment. Will he be able to?

The Hades Hangmen MC are violent and vengeful when the situation requires it but now they must face off with something worse. A clan of cruel and brutal racist abusers who see the MC as an enemy. This dark Contemporary Romance will leave you holding on tight to your feelings and take you on a gripping ride! 😉 There is a special little bonus at the end, so definitely be on the look out after Damnable Grace ends. I highly recommend this novel and series. These characters and the story-line constantly grip the readers attention and never lets go until the end. “Damnable Grace” is very dark, heartbreaking and touches on twisted situations but the emotional depth intertwined keeps you wanting to continue their journey. Reader Warning: It touches on sensitive topics such as abuse, sexual assault and some brutal violence. This is such an enthralling series! It’s definitely a Must read! ❤

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, abuse, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and very mature topics.
Recommended for age 18 years and over.

__________________________________________

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM DAMNABLE GRACE’:

Devin (Deyes brothers):  “You got no idea what it’s like out there, X. You got no fucking idea.”
“I wanna fight, Dev. I… I wanna fight for our country, like you. I.. I fucking wanna be like you, Dev. Always have.”
He’d saved us. Pulled us outta the damn gutter.
He was my motherfucking hero.
“I wanted better for you, kid.”
“Fighting alongside you, for our country and freedom? That’s as good as it goddamn gets.”

Phebe to AK:  “You,” she said again, a new lightness in her voice. Her fingers ran over my lips, then up, stopping at my eyes.
“The one with the kind eyes,” she murmured. Her head tilted to the side like an innocent child.
“You would not kill me. I deserved to die, but you would not kill me… because you had kind eyes.
A devil’s man with angel eyes.”

AK and Phebe:  “It ain’t gonna be easy, Red, but you gotta eat something.” He pointed to me. “Right now you’re a bag of bones.”
I gasped as I stared at the girl in the mirror. Her skin was dull and gray.
Red, I thought as I stared back at my reflection. AK had called me “Red“.
The color of my hair.
I startled at the brief flicker of a smile on my lips.
Not Phebe. Not “whore”… but the sheer simplicity of the name Red.

Phebe and AK:  “My freckles. My millions of freckles stand out against my pale skin like neon lights in the fire’s glow. I always disliked them.”
“Look up. Look up at the sky.” I said again. She did.
“There are so many stars,” she whispered.
“Imagine the sky without them.”
“Why would I do that? They make the sky so pretty. They are the reason people stargaze. To see their beauty.”
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

AK’s thoughts:  And with every mile made, I let me hatred of Meister build inside me- fuel to this fucking mission. Or massacre, I thought to myself. I’d make him pay, strip his flesh and slice through his guts. And as I looked to my left and right, Flame and Viking by my side, I knew they’d be with me too.

Story Quote: “Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”

⭐★⭐

The Synopsis for ‘Piper Dreams’:

Piper Dreams: Dream it, Seize it, Live it. (Dreams Series Book 1 of 3)

A New Adult/Contemporary Romance Series.

College Student Piper Rowe lives, eats and dreams of being a global journalist.

When her favorite professor tells her she’s not cut from the strong, vibrant fabric needed to be one, she’s floored—her grades are the best, her work is stellar and Prof. Gilmore wants to see passion rather than excellent performance!

Against all odds, Piper convinces him to give her another chance to prove she has what it takes…but how can she ever know the journey to passion and excellence will lead to the greatest passion and hardest sacrifice she’ll ever make in her life?

This series is not a standalone. All books to be read in order.

__________________________________________________

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ for ‘PIPER DREAMS’ by Author Amélie S. Duncan:

Piper Dreams is the first novel of the new trilogy novel series by author Amélie S. Duncan. I am a fan of her work so I was very excited to be invited to read and review her latest spellbinding contemporary romance. Readers will be able to grasp the feel of this story through the two main characters P.O.V.’s(point of views): Piper Rowe and Broderick “Brody” Whitehurst.

Young college student Piper Rowe has always been so focused on doing well in school and being the person that she is expected to be. She’s a young, beautiful, blonde woman who is looking to become a global journalist but it seems that she comes across as too groomed and not adventurous enough to be one. That is, according to her professor, who is the one who can kick-start her dream career path. Her life seems great, with a best friend named Jorge who is her only tie back to her late-father’s old life. The life her mother has tried hard to break ties with. By doing so, her mother is with a rich man named Royce who tends to make Piper feel uncomfortable when he’s around her. With so much going on, what can life throw her way now when everything seems to slowly be spinning out of control?

Brody is a part of an edgy lifestyle that gives him the chance to enjoy the “open road”. Having the freedom of living his life without any ties holding him down or anyone to shatter his world again and the ability to just do whatever he wants keeps him more or less satisfied. It doesn’t hurt that he’s a tall, sexy and attractive biker, who never has a problem with finding companionship except he makes sure that it’s always flings and nothing more. He’s had to learn some hard lessons along the way. One important lesson was to stay in his own league when it came to women. Also, staying on the go across the open road helped to keep him from stopping and having time to get lost in his thoughts or the past. The two people he considers his family now are Seren and Cole, who love bikes as much as he does and who he’s made an unusual arrangement with.

Cole is away and he’s left Brody to bond and take care of his woman Seren, just in case she gets sick again or he doesn’t return from his dangerous job. Brody hopes that with Seren and her “Biker Babes” group experiencing things from their bucket list, they can live it up as Cancer survivors. But Brody didn’t plan on meeting the beautiful college student Piper and he definitely didn’t plan on her joining them on their cross-country adventure. Will Piper ever tell her mother about the secret that she’s keeping? Will Brody’s unusual arrangement with Cole and Seren guarantee that Piper will stay far away from him? This is the first novel of a trilogy series and so far I’m intrigued and entertained by the plot and characters. It’s an intriguing story about finding yourself, healing from your past pains, and trying to become who you want to be while you still have time. Life is after all, one slippery unpredictable thing. I do recommend this novel for readers looking for an enjoyable read! Give this one a go. It really looks like their will be some twist-and-turns to come. Note: It doesn’t end on a complete cliff-hanger but there are a few questions that await answers. Can’t wait to see what’s to come! 🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘PIPER DREAMS′

Piper’s thoughts:  My eyes moved away from the boots and up to the dark, denim-encased legs of the man I’d almost maimed with the car door. Once my gaze leveled on the leather jacket, my heart sped up. This had to be the biker.

Brody’s thoughts:  If I’d learned anything in my twenty-five years; it was to stay in my league. My excuse the last time was that I’d been blindsided. I might have even tried to pump up my past to be good enough to come through the front door. But that was before. When I was stupid enough to let myself get caught up with someone out of my league.

Piper’s thoughts: I wasn’t one for spontaneity. Everything I did was planned, until tonight. Until Brody.

Piper and Brody: All I wanted was to have him willing to give himself to me. “Give me you.”
His eyes searched mine. “Are you sure?” he whispered.
“Yes,” I rasped.
Brody cupped my face and wiped his thumbs under my eyes.
“Then that’s what you will get. That is what we will get.”

Brody’s thoughts:  She was all dreamy. Stars in her eyes as she spoke about her goals in journalism and traveling around the world. Listening and watching her, all I wanted to do was give her the world. I swallowed. But that wasn’t me. I couldn’t give her much. I was just a simple man.

Everything I Left Unsaid 1 Molly O'Keefe

⭐★⭐

The Synopsis for ‘EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID’:

Fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas, K. Bromberg, and Joanna Wylde will be unable to resist this sexy, deeply intimate tale of a woman running from her past, and the darkly mysterious man who sets her free.

I didn’t think answering someone else’s cellphone would change my life. But the stranger with the low, deep voice on the other end of the line tempted me, awakened my body, set me on fire. He was looking for someone else. Instead he found me.

And I found a hot, secret world where I felt alive for the first time.

His name was Dylan, and, strangely, he made me feel safe. Desired. Compelled. Every dark thing he asked me to do, I did. Without question. I longed to meet him, but we were both keeping secrets. And mine were dangerous. If I took the first step, if I got closer to Dylan—emotionally, physically—then I wouldn’t be hiding anymore. I would be exposed, with nothing left to surrender but the truth. And my truth could hurt us both.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID’ by Molly O‘Keefe:

I was granted the chance to check out this new novel and here is my honest review after reading a copy of “Everything I Left Unsaid”, the first novel of a new series by Author Molly O’Keefe. This is the first novel I’ve read from this author and I have to say that I’m very interested in reading more, especially from this new series. This comes from the Adult genre as well as Contemporary Romance, Suspense and Erotic Romance genres and it definitely delivers in those expected needs. Readers will get to read the story through the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Annie McKay and Dylan Daniels.

Annie McKay grew up on a huge farm in Oklahoma, raised by her mother who never really showed affection or love which causes Annie to not have a normal loving relationship with her mother. All Annie grew up knowing was the farm life and not much else. The only real friend she had growing up was an older man by the name of “Smith” who also met the needs of a father figure for Annie. When her mother ends up passing away, Annie is left with a huge farm to tend to and not one clue on how to truly run it. At this time, an employee on the farm, a man named Hoyt steps up and offers to give her the help she needs. Everything seemed to be going well and eventually they marry, against Smith’s warnings. Annie didn’t want to be alone and was afraid of trying to run the farm all by herself, so she gave into Hoyt and his overly helpful ways. Not long after, Annie realizes the huge mistakes she’s made since the moment she allowed Hoyt to be such an intricate part of her life. He’s controlling, manipulative, violently-abusive and cold as ice with her. Her life became a numbing seclusion from everyone around. After one terrible night, Annie decides to flee with only a few thousand dollars and a new look to hide who she is.

Annie finds herself as a new resident in a seedy little place named Flowered Manor Trailer Park and Camp Ground in a random small town inside of North Carolina. She’s colored her hair, from the usual natural redlocks and is determined to stay hidden, just in case. Upon moving in, she comes across a cell phone as it begins to ring. Hesitantly, she answers. The voice on the other end of the line becomes a whole mysterious, highly seductive and potentially dangerous person that she did not expect.

Dylan Daniels grew up with their father named Ben and a mother named Maria. His mother was a beautiful and caring woman but his father was something else. He used to make him and his older brother Max feel like they were never good enough and needed to toughen up. Despite his childhood and teen years of getting into trouble with Max, he grew up to be cold, with a drive to succeed. After an accident changed his life in a way, he began to go in a different direction. The scars of life still influence his life deeply. So deeply that he now lives up high at a mountain top, practically secluded from society and has no plans on changing his ways. That is…until he makes one phone call and hears the voice on the other end that may actually become a threat to his stubborn ways.

When Annie decides to hide the truth about herself, will she ever regain her identity as Annie or will she get lost in the fake new persona of “Layla?” What dark secrets is Dylan keeping about himself? Will Annie and Dylan give into their growing sexual tensions or are they both destined to be on the run from their past emotional issues? Will their pasts’ ever catch up to them? This novel was very enjoyable with the dark, suspenseful, erotic and dramatic storyline. The female character, Annie, seems broken yet strong in some ways because she’s a survivor and a fighter deep down inside. Dylan, the main male character, is sexy, dark and mysterious, but you can tell he is carrying some major emotional baggage but still he can’t hide that he can be a truly caring person. Note: There is mention of abuse from Annie’s past relationship with Hoyt and mature sexual content in this novel. I do recommend this novel because it really was compelling and telling in many entertaining moments. It’s worth checking out, if you’re looking for a new series to try out. Check this one out, readers! 🙂

The Synopsis:

HE’S HELL ON WHEELS.
Tall, dark, and dangerously handsome, Zane “Tracker” Colter is the strong, silent type of tattooed muscle biker who drives women wild. But as a master of strategy for the outlaw MC club, Sinner’s Tribe, he doesn’t have time to play around with groupies and biker chicks-especially when he can’t stop thinking about Evie, the girl who got away…

SHE’S PLAYING WITH FIRE.
Evie’s been in love with Zane ever since they were children-until he broke her heart and disappeared. Now he’s back in her life, bigger and badder than ever. Zane is stunned by how beautiful and confident Evie’s become, using her artistic talent to customize motorcycles. He wants her so bad, he’d ride through fire to win her back. There’s one problem: Evie is dating his deadliest rival-the leader of the Black Jacks-and if Evie and Zane hook up, there’ll be hell to pay…

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘SINNER’S STEEL’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Sinner’s Tribe MC Series.***

“Sinner’s Steel” is the third novel of the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club Series by Author Sarah Castille. I was given a copy of this intense and thrilling novel to read and share my review for readers. This novel continues the satisfying style of romance that any fan of MC novels looks for: hot alpha males, strong female characters regardless of flaws, and a not-so-easy love story. You’ll be reading this story from the two P.O.V.’s(point of views) of the main characters Zane “Tracker” Colton and Evangeline “Evie” Monroe.

Zane “Tracker” Colton has always remembered the one that got away. Even though technically, he’s the one that left her behind because of difficult circumstances. Zane, who’s now known as Vice President Tracker in the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club, has been living his life under a new persona which is tougher, darker and violent when necessary. When the MC tries to get a hold of a betrayer, he comes across a piece of his past that has always been the hardest part to get over completely: “Evie.”

Evangeline “Evie” Monroe grew up in a home of secrets and always felt alone. The only people in her life that ever made her feel safe and loved were her two childhood best friends, Zane and Jagger. They grew up together and always made each other feel better by being their when each one needed some kind of support. When Zane and Evie take a chance one night by following their hearts, that night would become such a turning point in their lives and they didn’t even know how much.

Evie is now a single mother and doesn’t have much of a dating life. She takes a chance getting to know a biker by the name of “Viper” who happens to be an MC President but she doesn’t know much else about that part of his life. He seems so genuine and easy to talk to so Evie doesn’t mind spending some time with him. But when her past and present collide, all hell breaks loose.

When Zane and Evie’s paths cross after so long, how will things go? Will Evie ever find out the whole story of what happened the night that her father was killed and why Zane disappeared that same night? Will Zane be able to get over Evie or will he finally confess about why he left her when he did so long ago? There are so many intriguing questions that will be answered in “Sinner’s Steel” and it will blow you away. The characters continue to amaze and there is just something so likeable about Evie and Zane. She is naive to the MC lifestyle but she quickly learns that not everything is as it seems. Zane carries such loyalty to his MC and his brothers, especially his best friend and MC President Jagger, but Evie has always meant everything to him. This leads you to a gritty, suspenseful, dangerous, and love-filled ride! I recommend this novel and look forward to seeing what else develops in the Sinner’s Tribe MC world! 🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘SINNER’S STEEL’

Jagger and Zane:  “Why didn’t you let her know it was you?” Jagger asked…
“It’s complicated.” After meeting on the elementary school playground all those years ago, Jagger, Zane, and Evie had stuck together, leaning on each other for support and comfort, sharing good times and bad…

Evie’s thought:  Zane. The intense connection and chemistry that had first drawn them together hadn’t changed. But she had. She was finally in control of her life. No longer at the mercy of her mother’s emotional abuse, or longing for a father who was rarely home…

Zane and Evie:  “Tell me, Evie. Tell me you want me.”
“I want you. It was always you.”
Steeling herself, she forced herself to meet his gaze. “But when I gave up hoping you would ever come back, I let you go. I’m sorry, Zane. I’m not ready to open that door again.”
“Whatever it takes for you to trust me, I’ll do. If you want me to go slow, I’ll go slow. If you need gentle, I’ll be gentle. I will do what it takes, however long it takes. But I won’t let anyone else have you. You are mine, Evie. You’ve been mine since you were eight years old. And now that I’ve found you again, I’m not gonna let you go.”

Zane and Jagger discuss Evie:  It was a debt he could never repay.
“I don’t want this life for her, Jag.” He reached over, threaded his fingers through hers. “I want her to have the kind of life she had before. Safe. Peaceful. I can’t give her that when I’m wearing this cut, and I can’t give it to her as a civilian with a damn warrant hanging over my head.”
“You’d give up the life?”
“I’d give up anything for her.”

The Class of 2000 held one final party in the old gym before the high school was abandoned and boarded up. At midnight, the school emptied for the last time. Or so everyone believed.

When Redfern learns that his girlfriend, Bliss Moonbeam Cornwall, also graduated that fateful year, he reveals details of the grisly discovery. She insists she knows who his victim is, but before any headway can be made in the case, another grad is killed. Could the two murders be connected?
Despite being warned against meddling in police affairs, Bliss enlists the help of two former classmates to find the killer. But digging into the past proves to be a dangerous pastime. Her unconventional methods jeopardize the investigation, her relationship with Redfern, and her own life.”

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘SHROUD OF ROSES’ by Gloria Ferris:

This novel “Shroud Of Roses” is the second novel A Cornwall and Redfern Mysteries by Author Gloria Ferris. I’ve never read the first novel of this series but after reading this one, it doesn’t seem that it effects the story at all. For me, it seemed to be easily readable as a stand-alone novel. There is some romance intertwined but the story mostly centers around the mystery behind a cold case in the small town and other murders that may or may not be tied together. This novel is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Bliss Moonbeam Cornwall and Police Chief Neil Redfern.

Bliss Moonbeam Cornwall has grown up in Lockport and continues to live her adult life in the same town with many of the same people she’s always known. When her old high school is finally set to be demolished, a skeleton tucked away in one of the girl’s locker room lockers is found. Who could it be? How long has it been there? These questions begin an investigation by the town’s Police Chief Neil Redfern, who also happens to be having a romantic fling with the sometimes fiesty-local Bliss Cornwall.

Police Chief Neil Redfern is still getting over his past while trying to figure out a possible future with the spunky and never-shy local resident Bliss Moonbeam Cornwall. Now he has a death, which may be a potential murder, on his hands. To top it off, the woman he’s been spending his time with, Cornwall, is doing her own investigating which is annoying some of the residents in Lockport. When things seemed to be concentrated on solving who the skeletal remains belong to, the death of another occurs. The plot thickens. This seems to bring speculation that the old crime and this new death may somehow actually be tied together. But how?

“Shroud Of Roses” is a suspenseful novel with a little romance and a lot of mystery. This novel was enjoyable because it keeps you guessing and wondering who could be behind the deaths. Everyone is a possible suspect. Bliss Cornwall is a wild and rough-around-the-edges kind of character who seems to be like-able because of her uniquely-spirited personality. Will justice be served? Can Bliss actually help find out who is behind the deaths or will she become the next victim in this dangerous investigation? I will recommend this novel for readers who are looking for a decently good suspense novel with an entertaining story-line of mystery. Check it out if this sounds like something you’d be into reading. 🙂

Awake by Natasha Preston

The Synopsis:

Scarlett doesn’t remember anything before the age of five. Her parents say it’s from the trauma of seeing her house burn down, and she accepts the life they’ve created for her without question—until a car accident causes Scarlett to start remembering pieces of an unfamiliar past.

When a new guy moves into town, Scarlett feels an instant spark. But Noah knows the truth of Scarlett’s past, and he’s determined to shield her from it…because Scarlett grew up in a cult called Eternal Light, controlled by her biological parents.

And they want her back.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘AWAKE’ by Natasha Preston:

“Awake” is a YA novel by Author Natasha Preston and is the first novel I’ve read from this author. This young adult tale falls under the categories of  contemporary romance, suspense, and mystery genres while touching on the subject of secret cult lifestyle. This novel is written from the two main characters’ P.O.V.’s(point of views) Scarlett and Noah.

This novel was one of those rare moments where I couldn’t decide what to rate it and truly grasp what I felt about the story itself at first. Yes, there were a few moments that I would’ve liked a little more to the story but I usually base my ratings on the story itself. This novel revolves around a young teenage-girl by the name of Scarlett Garner. Her life seems to be going well and everything around her seems pretty ordinary. She has two loving parents, her brother Jeremy and her lively-best friend Imogen. Scarlett isn’t able to remember anything before the age of 4. As little snippets of memories flash in her mind, she becomes curious about knowing more and learning about her lost brief memories. The story quickly picks up and secrets begin to unravel and flashes of lost memories begin to awaken in her mind again.

At the beginning of the story, Scarlett Garner meets a new guy in class by the name of Noah. He seems to only have eyes for her from the start but this makes complete sense as to “why” as you continue to read on and is explained later in the story. I didn’t find their quick attraction and the speedy growth of their feelings to be far-fetched at all. “Instalove” does actually happen in real life so that wasn’t as unbelievable to grasp. I enjoyed the characters and how Noah was such a sweet, understanding, attentive and supportive boyfriend. Who wouldn’t fall quick for that?

The story was gripping mostly in the 2nd half of the book till the end because the characters grow closer and secrets from Scarlett’s past and the memories she lost begin to surface. Who can Scarlett truly trust? Who has lied for good reasons and who lied to get what they wanted from Scarlett? And what happens when the cult is determined to get her back while threatening everything that matters most to Scarlett? Some of the short-comings of this novel were how a few of the characters fell short in some of the dialogue but the novel itself delivered a decently good story. Not everyone is a fan of instalove romance but I don’t mind them at all. This romance between Scarlett and Noah definitely didn’t completely unrealistic. I enjoyed this and I recommend it for those that enjoy a suspenseful novel, with romance and some twists-and-turns. Check it out if you’re into a suspenseful-mystery from the Young Adult genre.
