First off this novel should be read by 18 years and up. More so because of dealing with issues of abuse. It does have moderate language use in it. Though this book has several sex scenes they are not explicit and only give little details. NOTE: If you have a hard time handling abuse in any form this book may be hard to handle. It talks about mental abuse mostly and slight physical abuse (Hitting).
This novel was hard to put down! It dealt with real emotions and feelings of a woman struggling to overcome her abuse. It delved into her mind during her abuse and showcased her new life she was creating after she escaped to become a strong independent woman.
She just begins the list she created while she was undergoing treatments at the hospital in the psych ward when she meets Colin and his two friends at a bar. She is at first unsure of herself and what she is feeling, but she quickly comes in to her own and becomes a woman her sister would be very proud of. She also makes new friendships she holds very dear and become not only strong of mind but also strong of body. The question is, is she strong enough?
This book has hilarious moments, it has emotional moments and it has plot twist you may not expect. I absolutely loved it. I just really hated the cliffhanger! Thank goodness the second book is already available or I would be crazy right now. This book is a definite read. Second book in this series by K. Larsen is Committed you can find it here
