4.0 out of 5 stars A very intriguing tale! 6 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Sophie mixed up and seemingly helpless finds herself caught between a maniac of a husband and a bossy controlling friend - a rock vs a hard place. They vie for her to do as they say and because she's terrified of one, she accepts the help of the other. Sadly, she stills has feelings for the man and they haunt her decisions. Should she get a job - he forbid her to work. Should she leave their home - he said he'd kill her. What choices does she have? Her gut tells her to run and run far!!! But does she?
You must read it to find out. A very intriguing tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Surprising 3 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A unique romantic suspense. This one had vivid imagery, well-defined characters and an exciting plot. The end had a twist that was surprising but also fitting. A fantastic must-read.

4.0 out of 5 stars What an ending 19 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A dream is fleeting
True love, divine
Your life is your own
It's all in your mind.

It's all in your mind indeed. This book starts making you think as if you're one of the characters and you catch yourself choosing sides. Yes, it's logical to be on Sophie's side. She is akin to the victim. But what if David had reasons for why he behaved the way he did? Sounds suspicious? Well, I can't tell you more than what I think or I'll be ruining the ending for you.

Initially, there is a sense of security about the way David looks out for Sophie. Maybe, he's just a little over-protective you think. And then the layers start peeling off and in its place you see a sinister being.

The only reason this book loses one star from me is because of the formatting. The fonts tend to switch when the perspectives change and after a few chapters of this, it becomes irritating. Asterisks or some form divider instead of changing fonts maybe? But this is a matter of preference and has little to do with RaShelle's fantastic writing skills.

Looking for something to read this weekend? Then, I recommend this.

Overall assessment:
Story: 4/5
Characters: 4/5
Editing: 4/5
Formatting: 4/5
Pacing: 4/5
Offensive content?: Yes, I would rate it PG13

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.
