A great book! Worth a read.

What is it about?

As the homeschooled daughter of a dangerous criminal Boss, Addie has seen her fair share of blood and pain… and been subjected to it far more times than she cares to count. Lost in the entertainment and safety of her own mind, Addie drifts through the vacation resort her family calls home, taking classes when needed, suffering dinners and guests when required and playing the dutiful pawn in her father’s morbid games. She has no friends and no prospects, until a chance encounter thrusts Addie in the path of several young men who actually see her for what she is…

… and vow to protect her.


Addie is the kind of character you can’t help but be drawn to, even if sometimes she annoys you. There are hysterical moments in this book and some stark looks at the human condition … the darkness most of us have. It’s also innocent and sweet, at times.

While the crux of the story is still very unclear, the mystery is enough to draw you in and keep you reading long into the night.


First Person, Single POV

Ending Type



  • Characters are wonderful.
  • The mystery is building up.
  • Cal… love him.
  • Funny!
  • Equally dark.
  • That cover!



  • A bit confusing, feels like I missed a novella somewhere?
  • More questions than answers.
  • Zombies?
  • Is this paranormal or contemporary, I really can’t tell. 🤷‍♀️


4.5 out of 5 Stars

Even with the confusion I feel after reading this, it’s a great book and I highly recommend you pick it up!
