6 LEAVES YOU WONDERING STARS Every once in a while, I stumble across a book that I don t just read, love, and move on from Instead, it becomes a declaration of truth that exposes what is covered up within society A statement of hope that encourages us to stand up for what is just , not what is deemed right by others A realization of the two most chilling and provocative words in the English languageWhat ifMark my words this author is going placesFrozen smiles, polite nods, a few princess waves and we re in the car and on our way A beautiful day A beautiful family.I m happy to pretend Know that saying appearances can be deceiving This fast paced, psychologically thrilling suspense book boosts it up to a whole new level My heart was beating 250 per minute and I could not tear my eyes away until I finished the book in one sitting To the outside world, Jillian Kane appears to have the perfect life a solid career as an architect, a loving mother to her two children, and a doting and supportive husband No one knows that deep within the household, Jillian is a victim of domestic violence, leading her to falter in her parental duties and question her sanityFor the next few weeks, I ll obsess on preventing another attack, catering to Gordon like he s a king loving him and worshipping him with abject devotion I will work out, wear sexy lingerie, attempt to bebeautiful than I am I will smile and purr, forsaking my dignity, my pride, and any sense of self that remains, all in a vain attempt to prevent it from happening again Like a beaten dog, Jillian cowers and submits to the whims of her bastard of a husband I was extremely furious with her for not fighting back and repeating the cycle over and over again and part of the reason is that as a woman, I, myself, felt degraded and soiled by Gordon s actions Like Jillian, I felt the hopelessness as horrific events unfolded and I was unable to do anything, anything to prevent them from occurring, only to watch her sink deeper and faster into her hellholeIt can all be taken from you Everything you think is yours, everything you think you re entitled to because you earned it, worked for it, all of it can be destroyed Look carefully at the person you think you love, be wary of your husband or your wife, because, if they choose, they can destroy you I am a romance reader so I desperately hoped for a happy resolution, though I knew instinctively that there wouldn t be one The very little romance presented in the book wasn t even there to serve a romantic purpose no, it was there to convey just how much role manipulation and aggressive control one has over anotherHe s robbed me of my name, my identity, my accomplishments, my family and he s robbed Addie and Drew of their futures Although these are fictional characters, the dark themes the book deals with are very real and the truly mindblowing moral I ve garnered after finishing this book is quite simple everyone is capable of evil, and only some are capable of good I can never really view my conscience as conscience again, for in times of danger and despair, all of us are thrust in a position where it is fight or flight, lion or lamb Yet in outwardly appearance, fear of doing wrong, personal morals, and compassionate natures keep that darkness deeply buried within ourselves, only to be triggered when we feel the need to survive, the desire to protect, and the urge to hurt Even now, I cannot dissect the meaning of the ending Is there regret Is there relief Will she ever be free What if she never married GordonWhat if she never ranWhat if the trigger was never pulledWhat ifI have nothing else to say ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Please note that all quotes are from an advance copy and are subject to change in the final edition. This book was won through Goodreads First Reads giveaways What a wonderful debut psychological thriller It was a fast paced page turner which left me holding my breath several times I could picture this in my mind as if the movie were already made Jillian Kane has the picture perfect life and marriage.though that picture has been air brushed to cover up all the flaws and ugly truths This is the story of living with the choices we make, until you can not live with them any longer It is the story of finally saying enough is enough and doing whatever you need to do to protect your family Jillian faces demons, both her own and others and becomes the woman and mother she wants to be We all make mistakes, but it is whether we learn and grow from them that makes the difference The characters were well developed and believable This could be the family next door There were plenty of twists and turns and the ending took me a bit by surprise I will watch forfrom this very entertaining writer I glance again at the riddled ink on Paul s arms and think perhaps my tattoos are simply less obvious, that I m as marked as he is by my young, impulsive choicesMy choices don t brand my skin, but instead, scar my life
