Not too long ago I reviewed The Fear by C L Taylor. It was an amazing, gripping book that I could not put down. When Avon reached out for a blog tour for Taylor’s newest book taking part was a no-brainer!
When Lou Wandsworth ran away to France with her teacher Mike Hughes, she thought he was the love of her life. But Mike wasn’t what he seemed and he left her life in pieces.
Now 32, Lou discovers that he is involved with teenager Chloe Meadows. Determined to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, she returns home to confront him for the damage he’s caused.
But Mike is a predator of the worst kind, and as Lou tries to bring him to justice, it’s clear that she could once again become his prey…
This book once again proves why C L Taylor is one of my favourite authors! When you think you know something, plot twists will prove you wrong!
I started out this book with a “yet another old man praying on young woman thriller” prejudice. I knew that Taylor would make it into something unique – but she blew me away. More so: she blew my mind!
Taylor takes the reader onto a journey switching from 14-year-old Lou when she is being groomed by her teacher and Lou 18 years later.
When she ran away with her teacher Mike she thought they would live like gods in France, but he loses interest. When she finds out he is now involved with Chloe, she returns to confront his ass about all the damage he has done.
This has been a rollercoaster read. It took me a little over 8 hours to complete the book and I finished it in 3 days. I am grumpy due to sleep deprivation but it was worth it. I could not put it down and even when I did, the characters and storylines kept me awake.
It is not hard to imagine why C L Taylor sells millions of copies of her books. They are simply amazing.
