Slave...hmm what can I say about Slave that could even come close to explain how amazing this book is! As soon as I got my copy of this book I was very intrigued by the cover, its very beautiful and telling but at the same time you can't help but wonder how the girl on the cover got to where she is. I couldn't wait to read the story behind the cover.
Once I started reading, I didn't stop. Sherri Hayes writes with such a talent, she makes the words flow right off the page and takes you into her characters world. I was trapped and held captive right along with Brianna, then Stephan comes along and tries his best to help Brianna. But, can Stephan save Brianna or will she continue to spiral down a deep black hole?
I loved how the author made sure we got both POV's throughout the whole book. Your not stuck in one persons head the whole time. We get to try to understand Stephan's reasoning and we get to feel all the emotions she is feeling and read all the thoughts she is thinking as Stephan tries to help her deal with what she has been through.
Brianna is so broken in this story from all the stuff she has been forced to endure, but Stephan tries to hard to save her sometimes even from herself. He does this even though some of his loved ones don't understand.
I loved reading every word of this book and will more than likely read it all over again. All the characters are perfectly developed and I fell in love with Brianna and Stephan's friend and coworker Lily as well as Stephan of course. Even though sometimes I wanted to grab him and just shake him. I love the relationships Brianna gets to build in this book and can't wait to see the other ones she builds in the next books.
This is only book one of Finding Anna books and I can't wait for more. If you haven't read this book you defiantly should. You wont be able to move away from it till you finish every word.
My rating for the story:
I hope you all will check out Slave and let me know what you think!
