Synopsis from Goodreads: Jenna is a wife, a mother, a doctor. She’s also the victim of a stalker.

Every time she leaves her house, she sees him. Disturbing gifts are left at her door. Cruel emails are sent to her colleagues. She has no idea who this man is but she feels powerless against him.

Until the day he is brought into her hospital after a serious accident, and Jenna is given the chance to find out once and for all why this man is tormenting her. Now, the power is all hers.

But how many lines is she willing to cross to take back control of her life?

My Review: The premise of this one sucked me right in. I hate stalkers but the aspect of the story where his victim ends up being the one with the power was just so fascinating. It definitely delivered on the creepy stalker vibes and made me want to figure it all out. I didn't however like the main character much and since we spent so much of the book inside her head that wasn't quite as nice as I would have liked. I also didn't love the ending, Overall I give it a 3.5 rounded up.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
