BLURB

Meeting him was a fluke. Dating him was a mistake. Watching him become a drug addict put me through hell. Running was my only option.

I’ve
been to Hell & Back. 
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and overall I can say
3
‘Can Mr. Big come out and play?’ Stars
The
beginning of the book was like a shot to the heart. Our heroine Bella
has left her abusive relationship with her daughter Lilah. What they
both experienced and how petrified they are for their lives is palpable.
Her chance at freedom is when she finds out
that her Nana has passed and she inherits the house.
Our
Hero Jackson Fletcher has seen a lot in his job working in the Special
Victims Unit as a cop. He has also been feeling very guilty of a past
mistake that still haunts him seven years later.
He
feels an instant connection to the two broken girl’s across the street
when he sees them watching the stars one night and slowly but surely he
starts to knock down Bella’s walls. Bella is trying to rebuild her life
and she slowly become the woman that she
is meant to be.
I
admired Bella and the journey she takes to be the person she used to be. 
They both as a couple have chemistry although Jackson is a bit of
a wild card to be honest. He didn’t always get it right with Bella but
anything he said at the beginning is hard.
There
is one major twist that I didn’t see coming. Which added an Oh crap
moment to the book and the difficulties that arise. It is also a
situation I would dread being in.
The
author hit all the right notes when it came to conveying feelings and
emotions of anger, despair, heart-breaking and utter loss. But in saying
that when the funny moments came it just felt so out of place. The book
doesn’t have to be one or the other it just
felt off to me.
There
is one thing which annoyed me and I can’t really explain why. Lilah has
never eaten pizza at the end of two. So they give her pizza which is
fine with me. But throughout the book the poor girl only got pizza,
sweets and a lot of sugar. Is it odd that I am
bothered by this?
This
is an author to watch out for.

About Natasha Madsion
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
