REVIEW: Possible SPOILER********

I really wanted to like this book. The story opens with fire as Sara starts reading the mysterious journals from Rachel, from there it fizzles out—a lot!

There are multiple characters with revolving door storylines that left me with a feeling of everyone is lying and hiding deep dark secrets.

The highlight of the book is the steamy interaction between Chris and Sara, but even their relationship becomes repetitive. How many times does he have to warn her that he’s not the “white picket fence” type of guy, yet beg her not to leave at the same time?

Honestly, I had a rough time finishing this book, it’s length would usually be a 2-3 day read for me. This took over a week, however, the author leaves just enough to make me want to at least give the second in the trilogy a chance.

Possible SPOILER********
The end is written to be a cliffhanger, but reminds me more of the end of a TV episode. Almost like the book is split to make 2 novels.
