Actual Rating – 3.8 stars
Tiffany Lewis did a magnificent job with the depth of this work even though it was actually a novella. I usually prefer full-length novels (or longer), so I wanted it to be more, but it was well written and the characters were well developed.
What I enjoyed most about this work was Tiffany’s ability to test our moral compass. While I felt I should have been extremely against what the killer was doing, his reasoning behind it gave me pause. He was a vigilante of sorts and that made me question if what he was doing was wrong or if it was actually justified.
I also enjoyed the development of the relationship between Vanessa and Michael. It would seem that it would have been extremely sexual in nature, due to the circumstances of how they knew each other, but it wasn’t and that left me pleasantly surprised. I loved that they found a “middle ground” and were able to build on that instead of letting societal norms decide how they would progress.
What I didn’t like about the work was that it was somewhat predictable. While it was developed well and the plot was thoroughly thought out, I felt that I knew what was going to happen, especially when it came to the final kidnapping. Tiffany Lewis was able to retain my attention regardless of that aspect due to the twists that occurred after the kidnapping.
While this book didn’t have me on the edge of my seat, I would definitely still recommend it as a great read that I enjoyed.
