This is not a book for the faint of heart. There were moments where I was in near tears from the descriptions of what Lindsey went through. You want right off for her to get her revenge on the people that did this to her. Soon however you meet a whole cast of character that have put political gain over Lindsey's well being and begin to feel that perhaps they too deserve her revenge. Its part of the reason I hate to watch political drama's, you end up hating everyone for their two faced approach to situations.Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television.
Too bad I wasn’t awake for it.
The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.
Share. They shared me.
But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?
Not one single thing. That was my boyfriend, Drew. And that was the last time I saw him.
Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.
You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed. Never faced consequences. Until today.
The books ends with a clear line into the second book, which was a little disappointing to me, that the author is stretching this out. There were pieces of the writing that I started to skip over, wanting to just get on with the story, get to the revenge but come the end of the book - as I supposed was designed so you would buy the next two - there is no resolution to Lindsey's plight.
The writings good, the pace slow in places and speedy in others. Her relationship with Drew (who shall narrate the second volume, a change I'm not sure I would have gone for) baffles me. This said by the end of the book, you come to understand him better and don't dislike him as much. I've already come up with a theory in my mind as to who set Lindsey and Drew up in the first place (and seeing the blurb of a companion series I can see I am correct) but I don't know why. Not sure if knowing the why is enough to make my buy the next books or not.
I give it
