Have you ever wondered if things could be different?

What would your life be like if you chose a different path?

Would everything still be your fault?

Would he still hate you?

Would it be better or worse?

Would he love you then?

My name is Brooke Ellis. I’ve spent the last five years asking myself these questions as I try to survive my marriage.

Some things don’t change, and some people don’t want to. Sometimes the only answer is to disappear.

Brooke “Kellie” is literally running for her life. Her abusive husband Warren has been trying to find Brooke and her daughter, Ava for six years, after a pregnant and beaten Brooke fled her home. Normal never lasts.  Will he finally track her down? 

Told in past and present-day, Brooke’s story is extremely realistic and heartbreaking while she lives a transient life of fear to protect her sweet daughter.  No friends. No sleep. No end.  She’s moved 12 times since she left and she may have found someone to protect them and something to stay for.  Can she trust a man again?  Can she trust anyone again?

Officer Blake Douglas is determined to keep Brooke and her daughter safe, but he needs to know her whole story in order to do that. Can he convince her to tell him the truth?

I am impressed with the detail of Brooke’s journey through the extremely organized battered wife network, and how, as she and Ava got older and integrated into the system, she was considered ready to hideout on her own. 

Overall, this is a terrifying and suspenseful love story about protecting the one you love by any means possible. If you like a dark tale about running for your life, give this one a try.  A note that book 1 ends in a cliffhanger.

Thank you to Ms. D’Agostino for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
