“It sounded so simple in theory; ready... aim... fire... but what actually transpired was so much more.”

Officer Nicole Nolan holds the gun steady in her hands, knowing that life will be forever altered once she pulls the trigger. Her position as a small town police officer is to protect those who cannot protect themselves. It is her job, her career and her life.

Amanda stands where protection does not exist. With several failed relationships behind her, Amanda turns a blind eye to the possessiveness Josh displays in order to sooth her desperate need to be loved. As the mental abuse turns violent, Amanda must deal with the denial and embarrassment of being a victim once again. With her emotional and physical health siting on the edge, she must fight to regain control of her life.

A gripping story with one final destination, but will it be life or death?

My Thoughts:

This was a great book offered for a free review by the author.  This book follows the story of Amanda a young girl who is abused time and again.  We also learn through this book read about Nicole Nolan a cop who tries to help the battered and abused.  This is a raw journey of Amanda learning that she can stand up for herself and the abuse.

She starts out in one dangerous relationship with a guy named Steve and runs from him to another guy who uses her, from there she runs into Josh who is the epitome of an abusive husband.  With the help of her parents she leaves.

This book is told from two points of view and in the end narrow to one persons point of view.  I really felt myself get dragged into the story.  Ms. Eaton has an exceptional ability to tell a great story. I really enjoyed it!
