But she soon is reached out to by a man who heard of her situation through a help line. Maybe she can escape after all.

This books is very well written. The story is very engaging. The author really does an excellent job of telling this  story from the victims viewpoint.

It shows the conflicts that those with anxiety from such traumatic experiences occur and how they have to find ways to cope.

Throughout the book we see Clarissa grow as a character to try and figure out who she is in her new identity of Parker. Can she leave the past behind? Can she really start over? Can she find love again? But the question remains will he find her eventually? Will she ever really be safe? I promise once you start reading you will not stop.

I’m running…

Trying to escape…

My life depends on it…

I don’t know where I’m going…

I’m running into the arms of a complete stranger…

Unable to trust…

Afraid of being caught…

It’s only then I fall in love…

Knowing it’s wrong, only makes me want him more…

Can he save me…

Can I save him…

Or will it be too late…
