It’s been four years since I ran away—from home, my brother, and my maybe father. I created a life free of expectations while pretending I wasn’t being hunted by all of the above. I managed to stay under the radar all this time… or so I thought. When big brother shows up and saves my ass, I’m forced to face everything I left behind, including her.
It’s been four years since I became another statistic. I made a lot of mistakes when it came to Keenan Masters. The first was loving him at all. He took something from me the night he left, and when I told him I still loved him, he told me he’d always hate me. After that, I learned how to be okay… until he came back. Gone was the boy who always knew how to make me laugh, and in his place was a cold, arrogant monster.
And Sheldon can't take anymore, she has stood by him again and again. But she can only take so much.
We jump back in forth in the timeline a few times to get the full impact of their history, the drama, the lies, the breakups, the ugliness. And Keenan goes to the edge of the line to becoming a full on violent abuser. It's not a pretty road he walks during his back and forth with Sheldon, and I didn't care for some of his decisions (hence the loss of 1/2 star). But all in all, I appreciated their story. It was ugly, hard, and in the end worth it.
And in true Reid fashion, we still have more questions left unanswered. There is still many more secrets to be uncovered about he the brothers past, their parents, and where is Willow?
Can't wait for the next one!
