Breathe in. Breathe out. This mantra gets Tessa Benson through the day. The man she loves walks all over her, and she just wants to get by without her heart shattering to pieces. If she could find her voice, she’d scream. Everything changes in one night, when she’s snatched from the streets and tied to a bed, a camera set up to capture her dying moment. And the person who paid to watch her die…is still out there somewhere. Tessa prowls dark neighborhoods in a quest for justice, but she doesn’t find the killer. Not until they strike again…in the place Tessa is least expecting, and where it hurts most.
You are a quite young woman. You want to please everybody and therefore are afraid to stand up for yourself. Result: you let them boss you around and you take it, without saying a word.
Until that day when something turns your world upside down. You don’t know what is happening to you, but it is something so awful, so disgusting, so… there are not enough words to describe what you are going through and you know you have to act before it’s too late. It’s them or you, so you know it’s now or never…
Money makes the world go round, they say and it’s true. Money can buy you anything you want and some people are always ready to do the most cruel things. I wonder though. Is it the greed that makes them that way or are they enjoying what they do and would they do it just for fun too?
It was so heart breaking and devastating what Tessa went through and how it changed her. It’s disgusting to see how she suffered mentally as well as physically because of someone’s sick mind.
I applaud her and I totally understand what this must have done to her.
Maybe it is weird to say I enjoyed this book, because it feels like I liked what was happening and that is certainly not true. I thought it was a well written and dark read. It held my interest from the beginning until the end. 5 stars
