This story is an emotional trainwreck with some light at the end of the tunnel, but you can’t put it down until you get to that light. Loved it! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
So I really enjoyed this story in a whole different way than Caged. Which btw I don’t think you have to read Caged to understand this book, but I would if you want to understand some of what is going on in the end.
This book with Lock is not nearly as dark as Caged was, but it a complicated and emotional story for him. I love Lock, I wanted his story when he was brought up in Caged and could not wait to read his story when we all found out it would be released and Clarissa did not disappoint. Lock is the kind of man you would want to find you if you find yourself lost on an unknown island. Even not growing up the way a “normal” man does he still has more compassion than anyone else would in that situation.
Jules is a strong independent woman that has gone through something very traumatic. She is very lucky that Lock is there to protect her and take care of her. I sometimes wanted to smack her for how she treated him, but then I had to get out of my head and into hers and understand that she wants to go home and that I probably am the same way. Especially with having no patience for being stranded on an island with someone I know nothing about.
This is a wonderfully written story that I was grateful to read for my honest review. I think Lock is my new book boyfriend. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review
