*I received this book as an ARC for an honest review*
Reaching Rachel is a heart gripping, non stop action story. I was immediately enthralled in the story and read the entire thing in one sitting. We originally met Rachel in Living Again, L.L Collins debut novel and we now learn what really happened in the past to make her so closed off to her friends.
Living Again is a true favorite of mine and Reaching Rachel did not let me down. Reading the pain and horror that this poor woman has had to live is absolutely gut wrenching. Will she ever get her happy ending?
We are brought into the dark past and present of Rachel's life. Keeping everything hidden from her closest friends, until the unspeakable happens. Being brought into the darkest side of her mind, kidnapping, rape, being beaten... will she be saved?
I Love this book. L.L. Collins has done it again. This is an amazing series, L.L.Collins definitely knows how to rip the emotions from the readers. Offering my fair warning now.... Grab the tissues when reading these two!!
