This review will be as spoiler free as I can possibly make it. As soon as I started this I found it hard to put down, it was inhaled in record time. Such a unique, different, suspenseful twisty turny, unputdownable read that had me racing through the pages trying to reach the end. I've only read one other by this author which I really enjoyed so I knew I'd fall in love with this story also and she didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this.

I'm going to be vague in my review to ensure I don't give much away on the story line. But here's the thing,

Loved it! A must read
Wow!! This story was tantalizing from start to finish. This is no ordinary love between two people. The Author goes way beyond what you'd expect. I was jaw opening, heart melting and jumping for joy. The story takes you into some dark moments and makes you angry. And then has you sighing with relief. The ending was mind blowing. If your a fan of Pepper Winters writing you will definitely enjoy this dark tale. Beware if you have triggers of kidnapping and human trafficking ...more
Anywho I’m not sure why I waited so long to read this one. It was really well written with great characters. There were twists and turns with suspense thrown in and just the right amount of angst IMO.

5 "I can't handle my emotions right now" Stars!!!!!
MY FREAKING MIND HAS BEEN BLOWN TO SMITHEREENS!!!!! WHAT? HOW? I MEAN! I CAN'T! I just can't deal with my emotions. In all the things that are holy, this book blew it out of the water. I was so consumed in this story and in these characters. I couldn't put my kindle down! There was so many twists and turns that I had no idea what was going to happen next. I was at the edge of my seat, clutchi ...more
Read my spoilers if you have safety issues.
I might try to stand all the bad things that happened to her when she was so so young such as the (view spoiler)[rape and human trafficking (hide spoiler)] but (view spoiler)[ a child from her abuser (hide spoiler)] is too much for me.
Because of him is full of mystery and suspense. You are captivated from the very beginning of this story . The story of a girl taken, sold, abused, its dark and raw then there's the present a girl who just wants to study, get on with her life with no complications.
There's a gradual build up as the two eventually entwine keeping you wondering, guessing as to what will unfold.
The present: Reagan first meets Tate at a ...more
Tade is destined to become the next greatest lawyer or politician. While Reagan is trying to make it through college without her mom going batshit crazy on her. God forbid she finds out about the relationship she is developing with Tade. Both have obstacles to overcome along with trying to deal with a new relationship and demanding parents.
Regan captivated jaded Tade. He becomes infatuated and falls for the girl with pink streaks in her hair. Her innocence isn't something that comes around often.
Sidenote- Regan and Tade need their very own soundtrack.
Another Terri Laine book I became obsessed with and couldn't put down. I felt what the characters were feeling! I didn't want their adventure to end! Yes, at first the plot seems complicated and difficult to follow, but I was hooked! I couldn't wait to discover out how their love sto

I experienced every emotion under the sun during my uninterrupted reading of Because of Him. It had so many layers entwining the devastating pasts of both Reagan and Tade. I can only compare it to the peeling of layers on an artichoke. After each layer is p ...more

This is one of the most intense books I have read so far!
Dark, twisted, mysterious, told in numerous tiny flashbacks…keeping the tension on an insanely high level…
There is no way you can put this book out of your hands!
The characters are masterly created and utterly plausible in everything they do or think.
The story is thrilling, heart warming and heartbreaking at the same time.
This book deserves many more than just 5 stars and is an absolute must read!
