As soon as I saw this novel on Teresa's Facebook page I knew I wasted to read it. The first thing that drew me in was the title. It was brilliant and grabbed my attention from the start.

Rellik and Ella have a story to tell. Open yourself up and let their story unfold for you.
Rellik is to die for. He is a strong and yet very broken character. Women are nothing to him. He wont let himself feel and is riding through life not dealing with anything format he past. That is until it coming looking for him.
Finding out his story was a little heartbreaking. Teresa does a fantastic job of having it unfold slowly and painstakingly. All I wanted was to know the whole story right off the bat. Thank goodness I didn't get what I wanted. The way that the story was told to us left us grasping for more and caught up in Rellik even more. It gave you way to really get to know him without it begin shoved in your face all at once.
Ella. I am not sure where to begin with her. Ella also has a story to tell, and hers will rip you apart. She is on a mission and wont stop until she gets answers. Working a dead-end job and almost evicted from her apartment, Ella has no choice but to accept helps hen it's offered. She has no idea that his help would change her entire life.
Though both of our characters share a hard past, you really have no idea where this story it going. Every time I thought I figured it out I was thrown in a different direction. It is a great thing when a book can do that to you. This book is a work of art. i couldn't put it down. The plot line has so many twists that I still don't have my mind wrapped around it. A story of love, trust, revenge, and conquering demons. This novel is a must read for anyone who loves a book with an engaging and suspense filled plot. A can't miss for 2014.
