This is about a survival of the worst kind. Juliet Monroe was first mentioned in 'Blefast Bound book 1 'Lex's Melody' she is the Personal assistant of Alex Matthews.
Juliet tells us the story of what happened to her during her 18, 19 and 20 years of age.
A young girl who meets the handsome and older college guy Oliver Watson.
The manipulation, the cruel remarks, how Ollie prayed on Juliet's weakness and twisted things to make her doubt herself and believe it was all her fault.
This story is written from Juliet's POV.
The author had me captivated right from the beginning, although know what the story is about, when the lovely Juliet meets Ollie for the first time I wanted to climb in my kindle.
He was charming and lovely nice and sweet, and when Ollie had Juliet's trust that is when he starts to change, so naturally she thinks its all her fault because he was not like that at first.
This wasn't just written well, the author pulled every emotion you can think of into this book, she really did her homework because as I was reading, every page turn, I felt like it was happening to me. You suffer and cry with Juliet all the way through it.
Reading about this subject is difficult and I can only imagine what it was like writing it , but that is what is amazing about Leigh Stone, it was done with respect for the victim and Juliet had something horribly done to her, but she is no victim and that strength holds this whole book together.
There are not enough words to describe what Ollie is, but the strength that Juliet finds to move on, keep going and not get swallowed up in darkness and shut out the world is strength and courage she has had to have with the help of her foster mum Alice and best friend Amy.
When I have read books about this subject they never go into detail what happens after. This books gives us what happens after her rape, after the court and the struggle and anxiety that is still with Juliet. She fights everyday, when she has a panic attack at work her best friend and boss Alex helps her to calm down and to breathe. He doesn't judge her, tell her to get it together he helps her deal. This really is a fantastic book.
This is only 60 pages, but I found that it was all I could take. It was strong from the outset and throughout, so the length, for me, was just right. Now we know her background, the triggers she has, now I'm hoping that we will get another story where Juliet falls in love. Her survival story is gut wrenching, heartbreaking but truly remarkable. What Juliet has gone through and what she has accomplished I do feel very proud of her and I hope she has a love of her own and a happily ever after.
It’s been a long journey to get here. A long, painful journey, I have the scars, nightmares, and panic attacks to prove it. I never would have believed, all those years ago, that Oliver Watson would have been my worst nightmare. I’m not sorry that he’s dead. I’m just sorry that it wasn’t at my hand. I hate him. I hate what he did to me. I hate what he has taken from me. More than anything, I hate him for taking the coward's way out. He was supposed to rot in prison for his crimes, not leave me to be the only one to face what happened.
I’m Juliet Monroe. I’m twenty-five years old and I have been through hell. I’ve learned so much about myself. The thing that I’ve learned most is just how strong I can be, but as strong as I am, without my friends, I wouldn’t be here. I’ve learned that friends can be your lifelines, friends can be your support, friends can be your saviours, and sometimes, they might just save your life.
**WARNING** This book is intended for mature audiences (18+) only. The storyline is a rape survivor's retelling of their story, and as such may cause distress. While acts of violence are depicted, it is vital to the main premise of being able to move on with hope.
Where do I start? Juliet Munroe is one incredible young woman. Her story until now, a little in the dark, Pulled Apart, brings us up to speed on her history with Oliver. The man who she doted on and adored. The man who treated her so poorly despite her already blighted start in life...
Their relationship was good initially but as we see the deterioration of her friendships and links to anyone other than him we truly see his true colours. We start to hate this man...
He was definitely that kind of man. Controlling, possessive, and who would stop at nothing to keep what he thought belonged to him, his to toy with as he saw fit. Something worthless, and less than whole.
His treatment of Juliet was abysmal. From the emotional abuse to the physical...
I hadn't wanted or welcomed his actions. I was violated in the worst way possible by someone I thought I loved, someone I thought was supposed to care about me in return. Nothing would ever be the same again.
But after being released on bail, of course he goes after Juliet. He knows something vital about their relationship and would use it against her...even if it does cost him his and her life. He truly is one evil man.
As Juliet picks up the pieces of her life after surviving his worst attack, he takes much more from her than he will ever know.
I didn't eat. I barely existed. Oliver had left me to barely exist in a hollow shell.
But after a sentence nothing short of what he deserved, he does something which Juliet doesn't know whether to feel relieved about or angered by. He would get to walk away, but she would never have that..
I can never escape what he did, and he has...I am still here, and I'm hanging on...and he gets to walk away from the responsibility of his actions, and will never have to truly suffer like I will forever. He's taken everything...
Her utter desolate emotions are heartbreaking and her strength was astounding. As this young woman pieces her life back together, despite all the anxieties and pressures she does it. And makes some friends along the way. First and foremost, the one and only, incredible Alex;
I cemented a firm friendship with the man I worked for, and I felt like the hole that had frequented felt like it would swallow my soul got a little smaller....
Alex, my boss, and one of my closest friends, took me under his wing, and his strong dominance helps me when I panic even now....with their help I face my future...
It was an absolute honour to read this and despite feeling emotionally hung out to dry after reading this I think just shows the incredible talents of Leigh Stones writing. Her ability to get across Juliet's turmoil and desperation, whilst making it a story of a true survivor was one I will always remember. I just loved it.
