If you want to live, you must let go of the past...
Twenty-eight-year-old psychologist, Alisha Dimarchi, is abducted by an obsessed client and imprisoned in his Pakistani compound for over two years. Forced to change her name and live as his second wife, her life is filled with trauma and heartbreak. Thrust into a world of violence and oppression, Ally must fight not only to keep herself alive but to protect the lives of the people she now considers family. At night, she retreats into her memories of the only man she has ever loved—a man she believes no longer loves her.

Thirty-four-year-old handsome surgeon, David Dimarchi, has spent the last two years mourning the disappearance of his wife. After a painful and isolated existence, he begins the process of healing. It is then he is visited by a stranger, who informs him that Ally is very much alive and needs his help. In a desperate attempt to save her, David enlists the help of a mercenary. Together they find themselves in the center of more than just a rescue mission. Will he be able to reach her in time, and if he does, will she still want him?

Warning:This book contains graphic scenes and very sensitive subject matter.

    I love books that draw me in so that I feel like I am a part of the events in the book. This was one of those books. Ally is abducted and taken to Pakistan where she becomes the second wife to a monster. Her American husband has no idea what happened to her for the first two years until he is visited by someone who knows her from Pakistan. The book alternates between telling the story from David's point and view and from Ally's point of view. This was a book I couldn’t put down and one that I didn’t want to end. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
