After losing her parents and sister in a tragic car accident, Lily distances herself from those still around her. As she solely focuses on her work, she refuses to form any emotional attachments in fear of struggling through another unbearable loss. …until Kyle enters her life with his possessive and overbearing personality. Instead of running, Lily finds herself drawn to him. Helping her on a path to healing, Kyle stands by her side and lends her his strength.
A bond is formed, but it is tested when the unthinkable happens. Can taking a chance on love conquer all?
To start I will say I liked the Kyle character a lot! He was easy and took control over Lily and her fears. After they met it moved pretty fast in more ways than one. It was pretty steamy right away. The other aspect was the mystery sort of thrilling aspect of a stalker.
Lily is not even a full person and has suffered a loss. It is an imaginable loss and she doesn’t seek therapy and for that the book missed the mark. There is no way the psychological mark should have been glossed over. The fact that her Aunt, who is very forgiving and sees that it was an accident, doesn’t do more for Lily and her mental health was upsetting. Under no circumstances should someone be left to heal from this type of tragedy alone, with no medication, and no therapy. I think if there was a mention that her Aunt or her beloved cousins were seeking counseling to learn how to help her I would have felt better. I dont think there is ever a way to heal from something like this alone. What the author did was show how nightmares and thoughts can haunt you.
The love story was great and didnt leave you wanting for anything. I also really enjoyed the suspense aspect of the novel. At one point when Lily is questioned about writing her book without experience I was like “YES” you said it. How can you write romance and be 24 and never experience it? I was thinking that and was doing the happy dance over Kyle and his sister when she admitted she read the book. She also told Lily that everything is on the internet. You may write a pen name, but I found out who you were…dum de dum dum dum Kyle didnt do romance but he sure did learn fast. SWOON
