My Thoughts

 

The overall plotline of this book blew me away, with that WTF moment in the book where everything starts to fall into place.  Getting to that point in the book was where it faltered, I was left feeling disjointed and unconnected at times.  With that being said, it was good and well worth the read, I just wanted to connect with Victoria more than I actually did. That would have bumped it up to closer to five stars. 

 

Sex Factor:  Some non-explicit sex.  A little lacking in the feels for this.

Unhinge by Calia Reed
Unhinge: A Novel - Calia Read

Gripping. A romantic suspense psychological thriller that constantly confounded my plot guesses. For those familiar with the BBC4 radio drama The Archers, think Rob and Helen with a twist. 

 

Here's the blurb:

 

In Calia Read’s electrifying and steamy novel of psychological suspense, a handsome stranger shatters a beautiful young woman’s picture-perfect vision of her past.

Hold your breath and count to ten. Soon it will be over before it ever began.
 
No matter how many times Victoria Donovan repeats that phrase to herself, she’s still trapped behind the walls of a mental institution. Once upon a time, her life was like a fantasy: Wes, the handsome fiancé, followed by a storybook wedding and a white picket fence. But then a picture-perfect marriage twisted into something sinister. And as Victoria’s world warped from dream to nightmare, her husband’s obsessions pushed her beyond the breaking point.

At first Fairfax Mental Health Institute seems like a safe place for Victoria to heal with her baby, Evelyn, and to hide from Wes, presumed dead by everyone except Victoria. Her husband is still alive, she has no doubt: He slips into her room at night to torment and tempt her. One smoldering kiss and she’s powerless. Of course, no one believes her about these visits. When she meets a sexy, mysterious stranger intent on helping her recall her past, Victoria isn’t sure she can trust him. But deep in her heart, she also knows that the only way out of Fairfax is to remember the way she came in.

Unhinge: A Novel - Calia Read

I received this book for free through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers.

 

I didn't read the first book in the series so I had limited knowledge on Fairfax and its residents.

 

But wow this book was pretty crazy. I thought I had it all figured out towards the end, but I was wrong. I feel like this book would make such a great movie.

 

Overall, this book gripped me right from the start and the only reason why I didn't finish it sooner was because I was super busy with school.
