She gave away the only thing he wanted. Now, he’s going to take everything she has left.
Lia misses her boring life—the one devoid of guys and crazy people who try to kill her. Back then, there was no death, no stalkers, no love. Now her heart is permanently broken, and she’s craving invisibility, yet desperately needing proximity. With so many missing people in her life, Aiden steps up. At first, she gives him the pieces of her shattered soul, hoping he can put it back together. Then, she realizes it’s impossible because half the pieces are missing.
Eliminating threats with the police breathing down his neck gets a bit complex for Hawk, but brilliant minds adapt and make resources out of obstacles. To break Lia, he uses the secrets she’s been keeping to isolate her from the people she holds close, leaving only the Soccer Gods. For them, he has an even better mode of removal—framing Aiden Keys as the Knight Killer. With no one left to shield her, Hawk plans to kidnap Lia and get his happily ever after.
Needing distance from the place that broke her, Lia says goodbye to Westbrook University and walks right into Hawk’s trap. She has no idea the guy she thinks is her last friend standing, is really the guy who’s been stalking her since the day she set foot on campus.
A thriller full of kidnappings, missing people, and serial killers—all wrapped into a page-turner full of raw emotion.
Sonya’s a nerd—a cool nerd—who loves science, books, make-up and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It’s not an obsession (or so she says), it’s simply an ode to her imaginative side. Storytelling has been her passion since her youth, but her family believes it’s more than that.
Though she’s fun-loving, complex-minded, and heart-driven, her philosophy on life is quite simple: Shit happens. Keep going.
When asked to elaborate, she said, “Believing in yourself is probably one of the hardest things to do, but look in the mirror. You’re still standing. That’s strength. Don’t underestimate yourself.”
Sonya also believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. She’s a firm believer in empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper, and letting them flourish into a story.
“There’s so much potential in a dream… a thought… not exploring it seems like such a waste of something absolutely beautiful.”
Missing when her life was boring before everything happened Lia attempts to get back to some form of normality. But Hawk is there, always…
Following on from book 3, book 4 does not hold back! I do not want to say too much in detail as I do not want to spoil any of the storyline that have been building till this point. Emotional twists that no matter how well I thought I had things worked out blindsided me. I am now truly attached to the characters, even if I do wish I could reach into the book and give them a ‘what are you doing’ shake.
I loved this series, it made a refreshing change to some of my usual reading genre and will definitely be having a re read and recommending it to friends who are after a psychological thriller with a twist!
