Everything done in darkness will eventually be brought into the light. I ran, but all it did was keep me one step ahead of my past. I tried to start over; new name, new identity. But you can't change your soul. A fresh start at college was just what I needed. For a while, it worked. I was the party girl, the one who seemed confident, but it was a lie. When guys kissed me - I felt only pain. When they touched me - nothing but fear. Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone who will see you as their world. But the truth? I was the beast. And as much as I wanted redemption, I wasn't fool enough to think I'd ever get it.
Until he walked into my life. I wasn't prepared to fall for someone. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me peace, he offered me security. I should have known it was just another lie - I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea. But I was powerless to stop myself from falling. And he was powerless to catch me. Because the darkness finally caught up to me, and as fate would have it, a cruel twist almost bled me dry. But I'm stronger than I knew. I'm stronger than you think. You think you know my story, but you don't - after all everyone has Shame in their lives - and I'm no longer afraid to show you mine.
The books in this series keep getting better and better. I think I might even like this one best. It was a really thrilling story. I guessed some of the plot twists but I didn't guessed them in the beginning but after some hints I did.
What is this book about
This book focuses on Lisa (or Mell). We get to find out more of her past. It was hinted in the previous two books that she isn't who she say's she is and that she went through allot. And boy when I say allot I mean allot. Page by page we get to find out what happened to her and we really get to know her. Not the mask she's showing everybody.
Let's introduce a new character in this book. A new (temporary) professor, Tristan. Tristan is very very sexy and moody. He also isn't who he says he is. It turns out that he's the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company and is living his live to the wishes of his father, or is he. He isn't on campus to take some time off being a CEO and just teach for a while. It also seems like he really dislikes Lisa but on the other hand really likes her. He want something from her. Something Lisa really don't want to talk about. After spending some time together Tristan finds out that Lisa isn't who/what he thought he was. He's starting to regret his original plan. What happens when Lisa and Tristan grow closer and closer. What will happen when Tristans secret comes out. Will Lisa be able to trust him again or will it leave her more broken than she already was.
What did I love about this book
I loved the suspense, the thrill, the mystery. I loved getting to know the characters story.
I really like Lisa, she is such a great, strong girl. Her past is just horrible and the way she coped with that is just amazing.
And the chemistry between Tristan and Lisa was just sizzling.
I did figure out the plot but not so fast that it took away from the story. I really couldn't put this book down. I had to find out what was going to happen next, if what I was thinking was right.
