Lisa is a young teenager experiencing love for the first time with Sean. He does everything right while wooing Lisa and getting in her parents graces.
What they don’t know is it’s all a rouse. Sean has other sinister plans in his mind that he and a partner have devised.
Sean’s “game” is absolutely brutal. It was hard to get through some scenes as my imagination took over and I felt every impact given as I read. McCluskey describes the scenes in such vivid detail that you feel like you are there as the reader watching as the abuse unfolds.
This is not for the light hearted. This book is full of triggers and some very hard core scenes. The opening chapter starts with a bang and sucks you into the story immediately. The story felt very real to me although I’ve never personally experienced anything like this. The sadistic nature of Sean and the fear and shame of Lisa are realistic of abusive relationships reminding us that unfortunately some people actually live this. Some are lucky enough to get out and get help, while others are not and stay in the cycle of abuse.
This story is a wild ride. I really enjoyed how the story played out in the end. If you are ready for the hard core, jump right in!
