I was young enough not to understand that my life was different. Colin became the one person that I could count on to protect me. He suffered for the both of us by carrying the burden of our secret.
We were the lucky few that got a chance to start over. A fake family, a new home and a pretty little life built on lies. But while our lives continued to intertwine, we were put on very different paths. Now it was only a matter of time before they collide and the beast behind the beauty is exposed.
I don’t know why I finished this book to be quite honest. I was bored through the whole thing and when the story actually began to pick up, it was over with and back to the boring parts. Not to mention that not counting the epilogue, the last 6% of the book was a sex scene. That is entirely too long and there were a lot of sex scenes in this book.
Most of the reviews that I read, people were swooning over Colin, saying how hot he was and how much they loved him. I don’t see it. To me he was a prick. A controlling prick that knew he was controlling and loved it. Yea he saved Annie from this horrible thing that we really don’t get much information about the place or what went on there. I think that was really unfortunate because it was some sort of commune and I’m assuming it was a sex commune or something because of the clues but, there could have been so much story there with it and there just wasn’t.
There was three different point of views in this book: Colin, Annie, and Jacob. Jacob shouldn’t have even been in it. He was pointless, boring, and brought nothing to the story.
Annie was a horrible main character. She was weak and such a damsel in distress that it made me roll my eyes multiple times. I kept reading this book because I read a few reviews that said it didn’t pick up until the second half of the book. Well, they were wrong. It didn’t pick up at all and there wasn’t really anything redeeming about this book.
Sadly, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone that I know.
