I received this book from the New Adult Book Club for an honest review.
It is hard to separate these novels since I read them all back to back. Overall, I give the whole series a 4. I thought I had the whole series since I had books 1-4, but I was wrong. The 1st book is a little overwhelming, and I felt like I walked in on an ongoing novel. Everyone was related with back stories, and it was hard to keep who belonged to whom straight. I almost needed a flow chart. Other than that, the 1st book is so full of exposition, it is hard to understand. Heck, I just finished book 4 and am still confused about the relationship status of the main characters.

Because I am rating books 2-4 a 4 star rating, I am going to lump the reviews together. Although each book ended with a cliff-hanger that kept me coming for more, overall I struggled with this book. It felt like watching an attempted rape survivor struggling with the stages of what happened in real time. It was slow and painful. It is the first book that really deals with the inner struggle of a attempted rape victim in this manner. It was hard to understand at times. Peter has his own past abusive issues, and she has new ones. The scars are fresh in this book and keep mounting. All I have to say is thank God I did not live as a teen with social media. It terrifies me for my son. It is definitely worth the read, but victims may have a really hard time, so be warned.
Each book can be bought on Amazon for 2.99 a piece. Book one can be bought here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017PDC8EU
