Stay by Emily Goodwin

StayStay by Emily Goodwin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


“I felt like I was walking to the end of a plank precariously hanging over shark-infested water. When I jumped, sharp teeth would rip into me and the cold water would steal my breath away. The monsters would take everything from me, leaving me shivering and naked in the water. The only difference was that tonight I would be pulled from the icy darkness and forced to do it again. There would be no release from death, only pain.” 

Home after her first year of college, Adeline Miller is looking forward to a stress free summer filled with reading, working on her blog, and spending time with friends. But all that changes in an instant when she is witness to something terrible, something she wasn't supposed to see. 

Beaten, drugged, kidnapped. 

Adeline Miller is ripped from her innocent and carefree life and thrust into darkness, into a world full of pain and horror. As a sex slave, she is forced to do horrible things, and have horrible things done to her. One of her captors has a past as dark as the world she is now living in. Will getting close to him mean freedom? Or will he pull her deeper into the shadows?

My Review

*****I received this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review****

This book is most definitely a must read.

It is dark, emotional ( it had me in tears at one point), harrowing, thought provoking read.

It brings up the taboo subject of kidnapping and sex slavery to life and shows us that it can really happen.

Adeline Miller never loses her spark, she is a survivor through and through.

There are quite a few twists and turns in this book and you will be rooting at one point, in tears the next and celebrating at another.

This is my first read by this author and if they are anything like this well they are a must read.
