Michelle Heard has been a go to author for me for a while now, but this series has taken her to a whole new level of amazing. I was blown away by the previous book and even more so by The Girl in The Closet. This book is absolutely riveting from start to finish. Overflowing with powerful emotion and hitting on difficult subjects while being written so wonderfully that you can’t help but truly feel what these characters are going through.
Birdie’s story is not an easy one to take at all, but it is one that is told magnificently. Her abusive past leading her to grow into a young woman who’s life is dictated by her trauma even after escaping it. Birdie is the kind of character you find yourself not just drawn to, but also cheering for. Every little baby step she made had me feeling just how huge it was for her. Cole always saw beyond her scars both physical and emotional.
With his own demons to battle and wounds to heal he comes home and is thrust right back into her life. Cole is the ultimate when you think of hero. No matter what has happened his first priority is always Birdie. That protectiveness paired with how gentle he is with her creates a swoony experience like no other while reading this book. What starts as sweet young love and becomes an epic soul deep connection for these two is full of tragedy, healing, and suspense to go along beautifully with the romance creating a book that you simply cannot put down for a second.
