Eleven years ago, I saved her. I loved her. But they took me away from her and locked me up. For two years, all I could think about was her. She consumed me. Took up every room in my head and gave me something to focus on, knowing I would see her soon.Nine years ago, I watched her as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of a man who wasn’t me. My brother. I left my home and never looked back.
Now, I’m staring at seven letters, each envelope stamped with one word in bold, red ink: URGENT.
I have no choice but to go back home. Seeing her will be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. But in order to reconcile with my past, I have to face my present. Even if the thought of seeing her, knowing that she is out of my reach, kills me.
I have no idea what awaits me, but I can only hope that the demons of my past will finally be buried and put to rest.

It must be such an odd feeling to not know what exactly didn’t work for you. Do you think you’ll read more of this author or re-read this to find out what went wrong? 😮
Dude, you’ve read Desolate, haven’t you?
That was for Ari lol!
Bwahahaha I love how you leave love posts for Ari on my blog Astrid! LOL
Sorry this didn’t work for you…this has happened to me too! It’s sad because the plot sounds good. But on a side note, I love the cover of this one..!
I also think the cover is so lovely TRisy!!!
Sometimes we need to tell it how it is, for us. That doesn’t mean everyone will hate the books we don’t like, or love the ones we do. It’s just how it is.
Yes it is like it is indeed Alexandra!
It’s so hard to really be invested when a character’s actions and motivations don’t make sense. 🙂
Don’t I know it Tanya!!!
You know sometimes it can be the book and not you right? =)
Hahaha yes I know Mary but when so many love it ….I doubt it’s the book.
Great honest review, Sophie! I’m sorry this book didn’t work out for you! I hope you enjoy your next read!
Thank you Raven!
This sounds like a very interesting read. Sorry to read there was something missing for you. Sometimes that just happens. I hope your next read works better for you. 😉
Thank you Maureen!
Great review! I hate when I’m so excited for a book and then it let’s me down.
Exactly! That’s so sad when it happens ….
I’ve had this happen in both ways. Loved a book most people didn’t and didn’t love a book most people did. I guess it really is different strokes for different folks. I do have this on my list. I’ll try to read it soon to see how I feel:)
Oh Laura I hope it will be better for you! I was just under the impression that the author tried too much if it makes sense?
I haven’t read Autumn yet, but I have this entire series on my kindle. And I get where you’re coming from. I don’t think I’ll pock it up now, because we both know, I’m a lot less forgiving than you are lol. Do that thing I told you to do for this supposed funk you’ve found yourself in. 😛
Well Ari now you’ve seen that I’ve heeded your advice LOL
Dude – you’ve read Desolate, haven’t you?
Ooh yes. It was so bad my brain actively blocked it. SORRY
