Review, Frayed Hope by Harlow Stone


A changed name, a different country, a new life.

Carte blanche, right?

Perhaps, and I might have enjoyed it under different circumstances. But the bottom line is- he won't stop until I'm dead.

I've done my best to stay in the shadows. Laying low and only speaking when I absolutely need to. It worked well for me until Ryder walked into my life. Or more accurately, jogged.

The dark and broody owner of Callaghan Securities invaded my reclusive bubble when I least expected it. Knowing that my time spent avoiding people could be coming to an end, I have an important decision to make. Am I able to open up about my past? Let him in, let him help?

Or will I embrace the cold hearted bitch I have become and leave him behind like everything else in my shit life.

I was once a nice woman named Jayne O'Connor.

I’m not sure I know who that is anymore.

Christine's Review

Wow! I went into this book with not even the slightest idea what it was about. I hadn't even read the synopsis, just jumped right in as it had been gifted to me and I just couldn't let a good book go to waste. Well let me tell you, this book was absolutely amazing and I'm so glad that I jumped on in!

I loved pretty much every aspect of this story and loved how you were kept with very few answers all the way through trying to guess what had happened to cause Elle to be the person she had become. Although you are given snippets all the way throughout the story, you are never really given the exact answers and to me that is what made this book so remarkable.

I did find the book a bit slow to start, however once Elle settles down in North Carolina the story line picks up right away. Once it starts moving you will be completely submerged in this amazing story and left with no choice but to keep on reading until you get to the very last page.

I am floored by the depth of the character that is Elle. The Author has made her into one of the most remarkable characters I have ever read and I just loved reading her story. If you are looking for a female character who is as strong as a bull both inside and out, then look no further because she can be found in Frayed Hope.

Then you have Mr. Ryder. Wow! Now Im not usually one for the man that seems perfect all around as I just don't see it as realistic, but Ryker is perfection to a T and I loved every damn second of it! This man has made me swoon something fierce and I can't wait to get more of him!

I found the story had a great flow to it and had been very well edited. It was a nice clean read and I always enjoy a story that doesn't leave you distracted by editing issues.

The only reason why I am not giving this a 5 star, is because I found that at times there was just too much description given. Although I like enough detail to make me feel like I am part of the story, I found that this was a bit too much for me and left me skimming the page to get back to the actual story. other than that this was a flawless read and the second I closed it I one clicked book #2 and can't wait to start!
