My Review
This is a very quick read. It features physical and emotional abuse but there is a happy ending as well. However, I did just want to point out the abuse for anyone who this is a trigger for.

The beginning of this story does grab my attention. Then it flashes back in time to expose everything that lead up to Lexi's current situation. I did not see the ending coming. What Lexi had to deal with did make me sad for her. I am glad that she did have some people on her side that believed her and supported her. While like I said I did feel for Lexi, I never through fully embraced the story. I felt like it was a bit rushed and therefore the suspense never really built up and I did not really get to form any strong emotional connection to the characters. However, this is still a nice, quick read.
