My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was insanely excited to read this book after overlooking the synopsis. I knew from the get-go that this story had trigger subjects and wasn’t for everyone, but I underestimated just how triggering it would be. From the very beginning of this story, I was able to predict to a certain degree what was going to happen, and it terrified me but also made me want to continue. There were several points in the story where I was wiping tears, and other parts where I was yelling out loud. As described in the synopsis It is not for everyone. This story is extremely well written, and I couldn’t put it down. Gianna is a very likable and respectable character, and she’s easy to relate to in the sense that before she met her husband, she struggled the same way most people do. Minimum wage job at a bar. Lost her mom to cancer. Has many credit card debts. Has dreams that will have to wait. But after she met her husband is another story. They went from dating to married in the span of a year and red flags happened the moment they were married. The day of her wedding she meets a man and spends 30 minutes talking to him. She never even learned his name, but for several years to follow, she isn’t ever able to forget him. Nor does he forget her. Derek. He is swoon worthy. He’s athletic, smart, and ambitious. He is a gentle soul and overall pleasure to know. When Gianna finally runs from her husband, she by chance bumps into him. And from there she tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered and broken life. I absolutely loved this story and recommend it to anyone who isn’t triggered by domestic violence and all its forms. 5 Stars.
