His life isn’t what it seems, and soon what should have stayed behind closed doors comes bursting through. His family is falling apart, and it’s all his fault.

Add to Goodreads:
"It started when I was a kid. I was physically, emotionally, and mentally abused. I was raped by both of them over and over throughout several years. And then they threatened to get rid of all of those I love. They even said they’d find my birth mother and kill her too. They took VI knowing I would do whatever they wanted to get her back safe and sound. Little did they expect I was ready to fight back for the first time in my life and not submit to their demands. "
****"Millie, I am not even going to try and tell you that it was an accident because you'll believe what you want. Please know that I did what I had to do to in order to protect myself and Violet, but I will say he got what he deserved."
This was a good conclusion to Kayla and Garrett's story.
I really liked Garrett and all the side characters. They were fun, supportive, and sweet.
Vi is an amazing best friend who's available to throw down at any moment. Wyatt is the best big brother anyone could ask for with a heart of gold. Even Patrice plays a great part in this conclusion.
Kayla was a problem. She was SO wishy washy about everything. I get the mental and physical abuse, I do. but man this chick is so frikin bipolar and ridiculous. I just didn't like her much.
The editing and muti POV was done messily. I also sorta had trouble with the writing style. I felt like I was reading in a monotone robot voice. I couldn't connect.
I honestly feel if this was buffed out and maybe had a good editor it would do a world of difference for the book.
Overall a good story line with a lot of potential.
