Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret
Sometimes, love isn’t easy…

He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.

(Mature Young Adult/ New Adult)

I have to rate this book somewhere between 2.5 to 3 stars.

The story was (for me) very predictable. I have to say that most (all) of my predictions had come true. So, unfortunately there was not so many surprises at all (at least for me). I am not so sure what to write on my review tho (I am kinda in my reviewing-slump period). It wasn't a bad read, it was just an usual one.

The characters, hmm...... say I didn't really like the girl at the beginning (and at the end, I'm just Okay with her). I mean she was just a very typical damsel in distress kind of girl that needed to be saved and voila! there was ur prince.. So as the story went, it was just becoming more predictable. Talk about the guy, I am not so sure how to describe him without giving the spoilers.. At first I thought he was just too perfect to be true, a caring bad-boy-emo-good-looking guy with nerd-economics-engineering-brain-quality (who I thought can only be found only at a custom-made market, U know I want one), but no one is perfect, there was always a dark background story to this kind of character, which I think would be more interesting if the story kinda told from his perspective, there'd be more emotional twists... but well yeah just my random thoughts.. and as for other characters, I don't have anything to say, I think they were just alright character companions.

The redeeming quality of the book was and still is definitely the issue it raised. And for that only reason, I think this book is a good read for many young female readers. It gave a general understanding of a sexual crime towards women and showed on how people (esp. women) might be able to handle or prevent it. The issue itself is already a pretty heavy subject if it was explored deeper in the story, but the book was heavier on the romance-story side so it was light and easy to read and understand.

  1. Nice review. I agree that addressing the issue of sexual crimes/harassment of college girls was the redeeming thing about this book.
