This book was written for everyone who has read my Hidden series and fallen in love with Jamie. Thank you for loving him just as much as I do.

All through my first three books you see small sneak peeks of Jamie's troubled childhood.

A childhood that's too painful for him to think about, too painful for him to talk about, too painful for him to even remember.

Choosing to write my books in the first person POV allows you as the reader to guess about what Jamie is hiding, it allows you to remain co

This is a must read!! It touches on so many issues from the child's perspective; child abuse, mental illness, a child's struggle with loving a parent who continues to wrong him. I've never read anything quite like it, but it is so real.

Senstively written, it never loses the feeling of you seeing events through the eyes of a chi

Parents can do some abysmally awful things to their children in the name of love. This story was tough to read and my childhood had very few scars. My heart bleeds for Jamie because no matter how much he buries, he'll never forget ...more

I did something I never do with regards to this series and read book 6 without reading books 1 – 5. I enjoyed it so much I requested the entire series to review for Prism so here I am starting at book .5.

This isn’t a romance story in any shape or form but more the heartbreaking story of mental illness and child abuse. It shows us the strength of love a child has for a parent who mistreats them whether intentional or not.

The story is told from Jamie’s poin
