In Calia Read’s electrifying and steamy novel of psychological suspense, a handsome stranger shatters a beautiful young woman’s picture-perfect vision of her past.
Hold your breath and count to ten. Soon it will be over before it ever began.
No matter how many times Victoria Donovan repeats that phrase to herself, she’s still trapped behind the walls of a mental institution. Once upon a time, her life was like a fantasy: Wes, the handsome fiancé, followed by a storybook wedding and a white picket fence. But then a picture-perfect marriage twisted into something sinister. And as Victoria’s world warped from dream to nightmare, her husband’s obsessions pushed her beyond the breaking point.
At first Fairfax Mental Health Institute seems like a safe place for Victoria to heal with her baby, Evelyn, and to hide from Wes, presumed dead by everyone except Victoria. Her husband is still alive, she has no doubt: He slips into her room at night to torment and tempt her. One smoldering kiss and she’s powerless. Of course, no one believes her about these visits. When she meets a sexy, mysterious stranger intent on helping her recall her past, Victoria isn’t sure she can trust him. But deep in her heart, she also knows that the only way out of Fairfax is to remember the way she came in.
I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book! I was introduced to Calia Read’s writing when she released the first book in this series UNRAVEL. It ended up being one of my favorites of last year! It rocked my world, so you can imaging how nervous and ecstatic I was to read the next stand-alone in the Fairfax Series, UNHINGE. Once again, this author messes with our minds and our hearts in this latest installment. You will find yourself constantly trying to figure out the missing pieces. You will stress the fuck out when the ending is near and you still haven’t figured it out. And even though, your mind will be scrambled, your heart and soul will be full when the last page is read.
“If you never remember us, that’s okay; I’ll remember for the both of us.”
I can’t even begin to explain the emotional rollercoaster you will go through in UNHINGE, but I can tell you that you will LOVE it…you will DEVOUR it…you will EMBRACE it with everything in you. UNHINGE belongs on every romantic suspense junkie’s bookshelf. I highly recommend this enticing and mysterious GEM of a book to fans of psychological thrillers with a dash of an enticing romance!
