Product Description

Product Description

Eighteen year old Amy's surname may be Hope, but her life contains anything but. She drinks, she sleeps around, she cuts... anything to help her escape the agonising existence growing up between her mother's drunken wails and her father's fists. But nothing works. There is no escape. And Amy wants out...

Enter Richard Lewis - the doctor responsible for saving Amy's life after her drink and drug-fuelled suicide attempt. Thanks to his own hidden demons, Richard is drawn to Amy and her situation, and despite the incessant warnings from both his own mind and his jealous ex-lover Joanna, he feels compelled to help her.

But how will Amy feel when she discovers Richard's attachment to her is born out of his own guilt? He was her last resort - her last chance at being saved. Can anybody save Amy, or has she finally reached the end of a very long and torturous road?

(Not suitable for under 18's due to language, scenes of self-harm and sexual content)

5.0 out of 5 stars Will leave you emotionally bruised but happy 30 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
You know you are in for quite the ride, when the book starts with pages over pages describing the abuse a young girl is suffering from the hands of her father.

Amy Hope has never known love but a life full of hate, pain and abuse. At the age of 17 the only way she knows how to cope is alcohol and random sex, until one day she is lured into trying drugs. This is where her downward spiral begins, leading her to laying half-dead on the concrete and ending up in hospital. This is where she meets Dr. Richard Lewis and it is not the first time he is saving her life.

She feels instantly attracted to him despite their age gap of 10 years and him being her doctor. As he repeatedly helps her and wins her trust, they get closer and finally start a relationship. You might think that this is the part where Amy gets saved, but with one person in the relationship having loads of baggage and the other one having secrets that threaten to make them fall apart, the relationship is bumpy and rocky and full of issues that put their happiness at danger. Can they make a relationship work despite their age gap, their different backgrounds and financial situations? And can they make it work with all the demons haunting them?

Up until the end of the book, I could just never be sure if one of the many issues those two have separately or together as a couple wouldn't break their neck. There were so many things that came up, people trying to get in their way, that I at times did not think a happy end would ever happen.

I really enjoyed the story and the fact that Nicola Haken kept me guessing up until the bitter end.

Amy was an incredibly strong girl. Having gone through the abuse and neglect that she experienced, she still wasn't giving up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Omg what a fantastic read! 24 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't give out many five stars but this one defiantly deserves the full red carpet! I was blown away by the depth of Amy and how much pain she had gone through. Richard was the most wonderful colourful lead that had many facets to his character which kept me enthralled.

I didn't get bored i was amazed at the constant roller coaster of emotions, crying one minute and laughing the next. This book had it all. Definitely one i shall keep on my favourites list. Top marks to the author!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 13 Sep 2013
By Georgie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book and it was so different to anything I had read before. I so wanted to jump in and hold Amy and save her myself, it was such an emotional ride. (I also wanted to jump in a give a certain person a good beating too.)

This was the first Book I have read by this amazingly talented author, but it definitely won't be my last.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 8 July 2013
By Viv
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book I've read by this author. All I can say is have the tissues ready, she can write stories that will rip you apart. I do wonder if she has worked in this field or has some personal experience of the tradgey she writes about. It is so heart felt that you can feel the pain. Inevitable was the first book I read which prompted me to look for more by Nicola. I was not disappointed although at times I was nervous in turning the page wondering what in heavens name would happen next. If you enjoyed the Breathless Books this is definately in that Class.
