This is one of the few series that I will literally count the days till the next book comes out. I was dying for Truth to be released so I could find out if Stephan and Brianna was allowed to find their happy ever after.
For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring.
There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.
Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer?
As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known.
Once again the queen of cliff hangers sucked me in and left me in tears. Sherri wrote a masterpiece with this one. Just when you think Brianna and Stephan are going to have their happy ever after, reality and outside forces strike and set them back again. Brianna is getting her strength back, she is facing life and issues with a new sense of strength that Stephan has been trying to help her find.
They were finally able to share their feelings with each other and realize what they can give in this relationship. I was falling in love with Stephan all over again. The scenes in the chair where Brianna can curl up in his lap and they talk just melts my heart every time. His constant thought of what would be best for her in every situation just makes him become more a hero to me with each page.
I was so proud of Brianna for the strength she was showing, how she was trying to do things for Stephan now, not because she was afraid of punishment but because she realized she loved him. She faced her father, which I may add, he should win the devil award, and she overcame her fears yet once again. With each day she is finding comfort in her own skin, then she is faced with the choice that frightens her the most. Does she leave and save Stephan from the consequences of his choices, which she is afraid will devastate him or does she stay and fight the battle with him? Either choice is a huge risk for her and once again she has learned to follow her heart.
I don’t think I have ever read a book over 300 pages so quickly. I didn’t read it, I inhaled it like a starving woman. As I read the last sentence I was already sobbing and wanting to hunt Sherri down and smack her for once again earning the title cliff hanger queen. Needless to say I am already counting the days till Spring 2014 so maybe my couple who, have taken my heart hostage, will find their happy ending. I know I will be praying that the next book will bring them happiness, but then there is the sadness that knowing the next book could be the end of this series. No matter what, Brianna and Stephan will always hold a special place in my heart.
