I bought this book after meeting Fiona Wilson at a meetup for Authors and Bloggers (of which I am both now #shamelessbragging). I only bought the book because I loved her accent and she has great taste in pens! I joke. I read the back of the paperback copy she had brought for someone at the meetup and just had to read it.
I’m not going to lie; it took me a little bit of time to get into it. I didn’t really like Rebecca because she was moaning about living at home with caring parents. But then it really picked up, and I couldn’t put it down. It’s strange, at first; I found the writing style hard to get used to as it was really straightforward and to the point. But the more I read, the more I found it a refreshing writing style. Nothing was hinted at or over complicated. The character’s made their feelings clear, and everyone knew exactly where they stood. The intrigue and suspense were heightened because of this writing style.
I loved the romance in this book; it was beautifully written, and the chemistry between the characters jumped off the page. I love Richie; I wish my husband could articulate his feelings as candidly as Richie does. I think that the setting was unique, I’ve not read a book set in a prison before and it made it really interesting for me. I enjoyed the social comment about prisons and the people in them and the way that the prison guards view prisoners.
Overall, this book was good but the ending of this book made it exceptional. Fiona destroyed me with this ending. I was a blubbering mess by the end and I am shamelessly pestering her for the next part. The only reason I didn’t give this a five star was only because I wasn’t gripped straight away. But I don’t think that is going to be an issue in the second book which I am anxiously awaiting!
