My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So twisted…And so damn good! I loved this dark, suspenseful story. This was my first book by K. Webster, but definitely won’t be my last. I could not put this book down!

Although the story is told from multiple POVs, the story centers on the heroine, Nadia Jayne. When we first meet her she is a seventeen year-old girl. She is new to the United States and trying to figure out the awkward relationship she has with her new stepfather.

On her first day of school, she meets another girl, Kasey, at the bus stop. Kasey is a bit of a rebel, smoking and dressing goth. The two become fast friends, bonding over their mutual disdain for their stepfathers.

However, the two never make it to school that day. A dark SUV pulls up and a man wearing a ski mask grabs Kasey. After a vicious kick to the head, Nadia is left barely conscious on the side of the road.

Years later, Kasey still hasn’t been found and Nadia returns to town for the first time in over three years. An unusual incident prompts her to announce her engagement to Logan, the Chief of Police. Meanwhile, she’s managed to catch the attention of Kasper, a police Lieutenant who happens to be Kasey’s older brother.

In no time, her stepfather has figured out that she’s back in town. He’s determined to bring Nadia back home. It is clear that he doesn’t like the idea of Nadia and Logan being together at all. It is also evident that Donovan and Nadia do not have a typical stepfather – stepdaughter relationship.

It also becomes glaringly obvious that Logan is an incredibly abusive fiancé. As Kasper begins to take note of Nadia’s precarious situation, Logan seems to get increasingly violent. Kasper is torn between wanting to rescue this abused beauty and his desire to see her suffer for allowing his sister to disappear without a trace all those years ago.

I won’t say much more because I don’t want to give anything away. I will say that this story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. If you like dark, suspense-filled stories, with flawed characters, this is a fantastic choice. This story was deliciously disturbing. I loved it!
