I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Jessica Payne grew up in Kansas City, later moving to the Pacific Northwest, where the mountains and Puget Sound became home. Beyond writing, she loves to run, rock climb, and explore the great outdoors with her daughter and husband. She is an RN and recently finished her degree as a nurse practitioner. When holding still, which isn’t often, you’ll find a book in her hand and a cat or dog (or both!) in her lap. Jessica writes suspense and thriller and is the host of #MomsWritersClub on Twitter and YouTube.

Dr Daniel Ashcroft was perfect: handsome, romantic, protective. I thought I was so lucky.

But then I heard the rumors about his previous girlfriend, that she had vanished without a trace.That’s when I found the cameras in my apartment.

I was trapped. Daniel made it clear I couldn’t leave him, not without risking everyone I loved. I had to disappear, so I arranged my own kidnapping.

I should have known Daniel would never let me get away that easily. But he could never have predicted what I’d do next…

“And I won’t stop until I find you.”

Noelle is a nurse dating a doctor, and she thought she was about to have it all. Until things started feeling off. Daniel was possessive. He was manipulative. And he was weirdly attached to his mother. When Noelle discovers that Daniel’s ex-girlfriend has disappeared, suddenly she realizes she is in a fight for her life.

What in the Joe Goldberg did I just read? For a debut novel, this was brilliantly played. The twists and turns, the characters, and the plot were fantastic.

I loved Noelle as a lead. She was intelligent, strong, and resourceful. She wasn’t afraid to fight for herself, even if that meant leaving her family behind to protect them.

Daniel was a complicated character, and we spent so much time inside his head. It’s disturbing. He was a terrifying character. A true narcissist. His behavior was so well played, and he was the perfect man to love to hate.

I enjoyed this novel. I couldn’t put it down! I read almost half of it in a single sitting. The plot grabs you, and suddenly you’re in fight or flight mode.

It is a story about survival, strength, and trusting your gut. The twists were so well played. I didn’t see them coming until they whipped me around.

If this is the beginning of Jessica Payne’s writing career, it is safe to say we will hear a lot more from her. She can write a twisted tale like a pro.
