At least, that’s what I thought.
But you changed all that.
You are always there … Always watching … Always waiting in the shadows. You send me flowers and messages. You stalk me, trace my every movement…
Until that one day, in a silly game of Seven Minutes in Heaven, when I finally get to feel you—have a taste of you …
It left me wanting more.
One catastrophic day, my wish is granted.
Just past my eighteenth birthday, tragedy strikes and I watch my family die before my eyes.
You are there. You rescue me. You choose my life over my older sister’s, and I hate you for that. I hate you for taking me and imprisoning me. You say it’s for my sake, but I know it’s for your own. You make me see that my life could be much worse without you in it…
You make me see true darkness.
It is in that darkness you make me desperate for your presence, your touch, your caress. You make me need you… You make it impossible for me to live without you… And then, eventually…
You make me fall in love with you.
Secrets will always wound the ones twisted within their web of lies… But the ones I’m tangled in … are deadly.
WARNING: Although this book (overall) is not a dark read, one chapter is an exception, and contains the following triggers: childhood sexual/emotional abuse with some intensity in one particular scene.
REVIEWED BY Joanne Swinney
5 BEAUTIFUL STARS
“Time’s up, beautiful” I just want to cry, I don’t want it to be over. I want more, so much more. I know an Author jumps for joy when they type ‘The End’ but as a reader, I didn’t want to get to the end. I could have read on and on and on. The story was so intense, I was on the edge of my seat. I literally had no clue as to what the outcome would be. Usually I can see what is going to happen or at least have an idea, but not even an inkling this time. High five Jaimie Roberts for keeping the mystery not only exciting but concealed till the time was most definitely right and my curiosity at an all time high.
Lily is a young lady with her whole life ahead of her. She’s a beautiful girl with a good heart, maybe a little to trusting, but who can grow through life without making mistakes. Life is a constant lesson, we learn as we grow. Lily has a great bunch of friends around her, most of them anyways, there is always one that messes up.
When Lily believes she has a secret admirer, she doesn’t confide in anyone, not even her closest friends. It’s scary and exciting all at the same time. The admirer or stalker, whatever you want to call him because in this story he has no name to begin with, so I am not giving that out. He’s sweet but dangerous, he’s sexy but scarred, he’s thoughtful but scary, he’s masterful but intense. Oh yeah, he’s got it all going on. Honestly through the story I was thinking, Oh My God!! Who does that? and Jesus! I hope no one actually tries this for real. You know when your children watch stunts on television and the narrator tells them ‘do not try this at home’ well, this is fiction people, the events, scenes that take place in this book should never be copied. It’s against the law to stalk someone.
The secrets that are revealed will leave you stunned for sure. I just couldn’t believe it. My mind was in a whirl, my heart beat was pounding, I thought it was going to pop through my chest. I won’t lie, I was apprehensive about reading this book because dark reads are just not my thing, but it’s not dark like that. It has a part in this book that will turn your stomach for sure but you will want to continue reading.
This is one of those books that I hope everyone reads. You will be taken on the most exciting and intense journey. For now my time is up. I am off to seek other books out by this Author.
In June 2013, Jaimie published her first book, Take a Breath, with the second released in November 2013. With the reviews, Jaimie took time out to read and learn how to become a better writer. She gets tremendous enjoyment out of writing, and even more so from the feedback she receives.
