Oh boy, I can tell you that this book is one powerhouse of emotions.

The debut release for a new writing duo. It is a great intro to a new series. Claire is the last member of her family, and now she is on the run from a ruthless killer.

4 and a half stars.
This was a new to me author and would be interested in reading more from her.
This book has a lot of everything, dark/light, happy/broken, and will send you on a rollercoaster of emotions. You will often find yourself screaming at the book and characters, especially when the bodies start piling up.

This is the 1st on a series and what a great introduction this is. Claire is the last surviving member of her family, and she is on the run from a ruthless killer. Adam was her brothers’ best friend and is a detective, but can he keep Claire alive? This is a well written story which is action packed, and filled with mystery, suspense, secrets, twist, and is a thrilling story. I was hooked throughout and I look forward to reading more in this fascinating series.

I loved this story. There were twists and turns all through the book. This is the story of a girl who has lost her whole family, a detective who wants to protect her and a guy who wants to own her. It's a difficult one to leave a review of without leaving spoilers but it's an absolute must read

I think this book was stolen from someone else and published. This is the second book that one of the authors has been accused of stealing from another author and published.
