Michael: Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika. My brother's girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven't had her body, I know that I have her mind. That's all I really want, anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college. In my city. Unprotected. The opportunity is too good to be true. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they're out. We've waited. We've been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

This deeply twisted, totally enthralling tale is immaculately acted by the two narrators, Tatiana Sokolov and Jeremy York. They capture the tension perfectly and facilitate the time switches which pile up the progression of the story seemlessly. I have been captivated entirely!

This book surprised me. In a good way. I mean, I DON'T read YA. Hardly ever. Too much contrived drama. Too much of a reminder of my kids and the college students I teach each semester, each day. I do enough eye rolling with my classes. A LOT OF EYE ROLLING. So, to read YA? No, thanks.
But this one had an interesting premise, so I decided to proceed cautiously. I was prepared to stop once I got bored. You see, this is my second book by Douglas. The first, Misconduct, was disappointing. It, too, had seemed interesting, but the plot was not engaging and the big reveal at the end fell flat. So, I wasn't sure if this one would be any better.
BUT it was! Oh yes, it was!
It had it all: interesting premise, complex characters, suspense, unpredictable plot, multi-layered themes, and solid secondary characters. It even had constant flashbacks and they weren't annoying. I was kept curious and guessing, wondering WHY.
I thought this showed expert plotting. Quite fascinating, actually. And oh, so erotic! Very. And dark. Very.
The male narrator? *sigh* Jeremy York has a yummy voice. And the female narrator? Must you ask? Tatiana Sokolov? It IS Tatiana! That goes without saying. She is second to none! NONE.
This was an overall superior experience. This is the quality of audiobook that spoils you. It wrecks you so that you can't endure audiobooks that aren't as well executed. It left me searching desperately for a similar listening experience.
So ... Kudos to Ms. Douglas!

Could barely finish this one. This was a badly done psycho meets heathers book. There was not a single character I could relate to or didnt want to die in a firey death. (Spoiler Alert) the main character spent the whole book making excuses for the guys scaring her to the point of tears with threats of violence and rape. And in the end after all the bullshit, the MC gets together with one of them. SMH, sorry not my type of book. I like my MCs to have a backbone.
