Emily’s a bouncy vibrant woman. In her day to day job as a pharmacist, she sees a lot of the same people. One of them, an older man by the name of Noah, stands out though. He’s never done anything to harm her, but he unsettles her. Emily tries to shrug it off and go about her life. When she runs into an old flame, Isaiah, she’s enamored. Noah is anything but. As her feelings for Isaiah grow, Noah’s sick obsession deepens. He’ll do anything to have her. Anything.
I loved the premise of this book. It had a solid plot with interesting characters. I think Noah was the most fleshed out of all of them. It was interesting to see to what depths he would go through to get Emily under his wing. My only problem was that I couldn’t really find a connection with Emily or Isaiah’s characters. They had their own personalities, but they weren’t as developed as the villain.
I loved how protective Isaiah was over Emily though I did find a few aspects of their relationship to be a bit hard to believe. All in all, they were cute together, and I was rooting for them to pull through everything Noah sent their way.
Narration was wonderfully done. The narrator had a wide range of voices for both male and female characters, and it was his performance that kept me listening to the story.
