Holy crap! I am so glad I decided to read the last book! This story was hard to read, it was dark and brutal and was not the kind of book I normally read but the relationship between these two people was something that started so hateful and brutal and grew into something so beautiful and loving. I cried my eyes out as she stepped out of the truck. I wanted them to have a happy ending so badly. I loved the way it ended, I felt like it in some strange dark way justified what they both had been put through. I am drawn to stories where the characters are stripped of everything that makes them human, all the love and security taken away and how they find the strength to get out, to find a way to find peace. To heal even if they can barely stand to look in the mirror. It was moving seeing the change in Caleb in book two. He was so much more broken than Livvie was. He had never had anything worth loving, his whole life was pain and revenge and hatred. Livvie opened up his heart and became everything to him, changed his heart & soul. It's was the strangest, darkest love story I had ever read but it will never be forgotten. Be warned it is brutal and painful to read at times, NOT for your average reader, be warned,human trafficking and the slave trade is a scary place to read about. But that aside I highly recommend reading BOTH books.
