About the Book


My stomach dropped as a tall, dark-haired man stepped into view. Had he been hiding between the trees?

“No. Sorry.” Gulping, I took a step back. “I’m not Lily.”

He shook his head, a satisfied grin on his face. “No. You are Lily.”

“I’m Summer. You have the wrong person.” You utter freak!

I could hear my pulse crashing in my ears. How stupid to give him my real name. He continued to stare at me, smiling. It made me feel sick.

“You are Lily,” he repeated.

Before I could blink, he threw his arms forward and grabbed me. I tried to shout, but he clasped his hand over my mouth, muffling my screams. My heart raced. I’m going to die.

For months Summer is trapped in a cellar with the man who took her—and three other girls: Rose, Poppy, and Violet. His perfect, pure flowers. His family. But flowers can’t survive long cut off from the sun, and time is running out…

My Review

This was quite a book!  Although there is foul language in it, the author displays the kidnapper as the perfect insane man.  Wanting a family to call his own, he kidnaps women that he knows have no ties, no family.  Through his abuse, he manipulates them into playing along with his insanity.  

Summer, the newest addition is the youngest.  She does not manipulate easy, however.  She’s ready to fight and tries to get the other women to do the same.  Luckily, her boyfriend does not stop until he finds her.

The author does a great job revealing the fear these women are put through and the emotions of her family and boyfriend who are desperate to find her.  

This is a book I purchased to read and review.
