Done with this series
Reviewed in the United States on October 13, 2019
There's so many things I want to say about this book but find it hard to put into words. Let's put it this way, I read to escape. I have to read every day or my day isn't complete. I'm addicted to reading and love reading a long series that pulls me in and makes me care about the characters. This series had so much potential, but now that's over. I won't finish this book. I don't care who Sookie ends up with or how it ends. This book was ruined when the author decided to throw a violent rape scene in the mix, near the end of the book no less. Being a rape survivor myself, it threw me completely off the rails and ruined the entire book. Why couldn't Eric open the trunk 5 minutes earlier? How was Debbie in the secure garage and just waiting for Sookie to appear in the middle of the night? There was no need to insert the rape into the story. It added nothing to the story line. I read in another review that it wasn't even addressed. So no, I'm done with this series and with this author.
