I still am reeling from this. I was on the ARC team for review, so I have had plenty of time to process this, but I still have not come to terms with it.
This book was brutal and beautiful and I loved every single page of it. All of Mia's reads hit you emotionally, I kind of this of it as her trademark, but this book? She went so out of the box with this read it was a new level all together.
Harper and Lucas's story as full of hurt and broken-ness, that you feel protective of them by the end of the book. I was yelling at characters and reeling over the crazy plot twists.
Also, I already need more form this world. I fell in love with the characters and I feel like there are so many more ways that it can go after this ending. I was happy and in love with the end, but I want so much more.
This was a book that hurt my heart. It challenged what I thought a character could withstand and delivered a compelling page turning novel that takes you by surprise in a way that you have no clue is coming.
When wilderness guide, Harper Ward, is summoned to the small town sheriff’s office in Helena Springs, Montana, to provide assistance on a case, she is shocked to find that their only suspect in the double murder investigation is a man described as a savage.
But the longer she watches the man known only as Lucas, on the station surveillance camera, the more intrigued she becomes. He certainly looks primitive with his unkempt appearance and animal skin attire, but she also sees intelligence in his eyes, sensitivity in his expression. Who is he? And how is it possible that he’s lived alone in the forest since he was a small child?
As secrets begin to emerge, Harper is thrust into something bigger and more diabolical than she ever could have imagined. And standing right at the center of it all, is Lucas. But is he truly the wild man he appears to be? A cold blooded killer? An innocent victim? Or a perplexing mix of all three?
Harper must find out the answers to these questions because the more time she spends with him, the more she risks losing her heart.
