My Rating: 4 Stars
In this tension-filled psychological thriller, Elana is desperate to find a way to get away from her husband Jackson. Although leaving Jackson will be dangerous, causing Elana to remain in a state of constant terror, seven-year-old daughter Phoebe‘s safety is paramount, Elana is doing everything that she can to get them away. Like a commanding officer in the military, Jackson has order after order that he issues to Elana, leaving her very little freedom to find and execute an escape plan.
Although they have only been married for a year, Jackson's true nature showed really quickly. Elana has no doubt that he had everything to do with his first two marriages failing. At first, however, she only knew of his prior marriages. What Elana did not know is that each of his ex-wives had a daughter. And each of their daughters had disappeared without a trace. Now she is more determined than ever to get her and Phoebe away from Jackson before she loses her precious daughter.
At some point, the FBI might seem like the route Elana will choose. But, can she trust them enough, or find enough proof to escape her horrid, controlling and abusive husband? What is it the FBI is looking for to stop Jackson once and for all. If Elana looks for that elusive thing, could it cost her everything? Her life? Phoebe? Jackson is rich, successful, powerful and cruel. Elana's options are few.
Jackson was a really loathsome character. It was so hard to imagine how Elana felt day in and day out, especially when all she wanted to do was to protect her child. I was torn between wanting to throttle Jackson and wanting to grab Elana and Phoebe in a group hug. In this thrilling read by Jenna Kernan, the tension never let up. The twists were a true surprise as this book and this book was yet another one-sitting read for me as I kept hoping for a good resolution for Elana.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
