Wow this is a very dark no holds barred read by Lily White. It has every trigger imaginable and more. Its a very captivating read once you start its very hard to put down. You just have to keep going to see what happens next and need to see how it ends.
Emma gets abducted one night after getting out of her boyfriends car. She ends up in a horror she never knew existed until it happens. She manages to find a strength she never knew she had to keep going. She finds an attraction she didn't think possible under the circumstances with the Director Ethan. Will the horror ever end for Emma and will she get love she wants.
If you have any triggers this may not be the book for you as there are a lot of triggers and Lily goes into graphic detail. You know such a world exists but you would never know what would go on in this world until now. If you're looking for a very dark read this will satisfy the need especially being one that's hard to put down. I was tempted a couple of times to maybe go to the end to see but I managed to resist the temptation.

“It was in my moments with him that I realized that human life isn’t simply about the happy times and heartwarming moments. There was no true line between right and wrong, in each of us, both light and darkness exist. To refuse one was to diminish the other. To never fear was to never feel brave. To never hurt was to never find joy. To turn away from what society deemed disturbing was to never fully understand that even in ugliness there was beauty.”
You never know what path Lily White is going to lead you down, but you always know it’s going to be one hell of a ride! This is unrestrained, no holds barred, Lily White.
I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what was going to happen to Emma. Was this attraction developing between her and Ethan going to take root? Where was all of this story leading? Does Emma have an ending???
Lily White sure knows how to keep you on your toes and entranced in a story! As disturbing and awful as some of the acts in this story are, the author is able to shed hope and light and love in the direst of situations. This story is raw. It makes you think, it makes you question, it makes you feel.
“Because when you took the entire picture of my journey with Ethan and broke it down frame by terrifying frame, only one answer was left to be given; I’d taken a script written to show the most depraved of all nightmares and had somehow discovered notations of love scribbled hastily within its pages.”
