I read this first, before I knew it was a series. It was also my first book from Lauren Dane, and it got me hooked! Ella's story is an incredible and emotional journey from physical and emotional abuse and almost dying to surviving. I really felt connected to her and cried a few times at what she had to endure. I loved how Ms. Dane put her with Cope. He was the perfect guy for Ella, and he had me sweating a time or two in the love scenes! :) After having gone back and read the first two, then re reading this one, I had even more appreciation for this story as well as the series. I love all these books and they are in my top faves as well as definite re reads for me!
I get all emotional every time I read this! Lauren Dane is a master at writing!
