Breathe in. Breathe out. This mantra gets Tessa Benson through the day.
The man she loves walks all over her, and she just wants to get by without her heart shattering to pieces. If she could find her voice, she’d scream.
Everything changes in one night, when she’s snatched from the streets and tied to a bed, a camera set up to capture her dying moment. And the person who paid to watch her die…is still out there somewhere.
Tessa prowls dark neighborhoods in a quest for justice, but she doesn’t find the killer. Not until they strike again…in the place Tessa is least expecting, and where it hurts worst.
“We don’t always get to choose who we want to be initially. But it seems, if we’re lucky, we eventually get the opportunity to choose who we want to be in the end.”
WHAT A BOOK!!!!
This book was way more than I expected.
This book was raw and emotional. It didn’t try to coverup or sugar coat anything.
Tessa is just a normal woman. She keeps to herself most of the time. She doesn’t bother anymore.
After getting out of a short relationship, she feels lost.
One night she is kidnapped by two men. She is taken to a cabin in the woods and held there. Her time there is terrible but luckily she manages to escape.
With the person behind her kidnapping still out there, she doesn’t know who to trust.
When she makes friends with the officer working her case, Officer MacGregor, her life starts to change. She starts to believe in her self more.
She is not the timid, shy girl she used to be. She lost that when she was kidnapped.
But what happens when she gets overwhelmed?
What happens when it gets to much to handle?
Will Tessa be able to handle the pain and the PTSD or will she give into them?
What happens when Tessa decides to take the law into her own hands? Will she survive?
You have to read to find out!
What a story. This is the first time I have read this author and I will defiantly read more of her books.
Tessa lived thought a terrible event. But even when she escaped, the torment wasn’t over. This book shows that even if you look okay on the outside, sometimes the inside is screaming for help. Tessa endures a lot in this book and it takes a toll on her body, both physically and mentally.
There were parts of this book that were hard to read, but without them, the story would not have ben what it is. This is defiantly a 5 star book for me.
