For a quick, short novella, this story covered a lot of territory. The result, was an intense and emotional read without any dull moments. I honestly didn’t think that the author would be able to tackle such an emotional and controversial topic as rape in so few pages and end up with a story worth reading. However, I had heard that it was a great read and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised.
The characters and storyline felt incredibly well-developed for such a short story. Maybe the highly emotional topic had something to do with it, but I really felt attached to both main characters very quickly.
The sex scenes were hot and emotional. The characters had depth and even though the story progressed rapidly, I didn’t feel like there was any irritating “insta-love” like in many novellas. The story also concludes with a HEA, which is hard to find in a quick read lately, as all of them seem to be a small part of a never-ending series. This one is not.
All in all, a surprisingly good read.
