While reading this book I was taking a psychology course. I found it fascinating that while I read I could tell certain things that I would not have understood before they were revealed had I not been taking that class. I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. While the title can be deceiving, and you will get a lot of looks for it, it is most definitely worth it.

Never judge a book by its cover or title! I thought this was going to be a romance story based off the title and to my surprise it definitely was not. It was more intrigue and psychological. I enjoyed reading Rayne's story and finding out slowly what had happened in her life to cause her disturbing behavior. The story took awhile to unravel but it all came together in the end and made you understand the why's. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes to read stories that focus on analyzing th ...more

The story is interesting and the writing pulls you in, but I just feel like the writer withheld the "secret" too long. It wasn't until several chapters into the book that it's revealed what the character is running from, although it was quite obvious to me very early. This book is extremely helpful for anyone who has experienced abuse. It does have some hope within it, but it's subtle. Even in the end, the hope is subtle. But I guess, that's how hope is sometimes....I wouldn't discourage anyone ...more
This was one of the first books from Donna Hill I've read a few years ago, and I must say this was by far one of the best reads as of date. Like an onion, each chapter unraveled some sort of mystery from Rayne and her family; which I thought was genius on her end. Her wordplay in this book is more than impeccable which I thought was intriguing from the first line. The book itself is filled with emotion, passion, and pain. Definitely a book I'd recommend to anyone. You'll be done by the end of th ...more
This was my first book I read by Donna Hill, It's been sitting on my shelf for a while. I read this book in 2 days, Donna kept me completely intrigued with the characters, and mystery behind Rayne's pain, and double personality. I enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more of her books.
I read this book a long time ago and liked it very much. To this day, I wonder what happened to Rayne. This book is just that good. It wasn't the kind of book where everything was wrapped up in a nice neat bow at the end, but it was very, very good.
