Something changed her and Jeremi Lloyd can’t figure out what it is. As her guardian, it’s Jeremi’s job to make sure Trista is taken care of.

Alicia’s Review: 

This is by far one of the weirdest, craziest books I’ve ever read!

Trista Lloyd was in a terrible car accident 4 months ago, she was so traumatized she had to be placed in a psych ward. The doctors there were supposed to be helping her overcome her ordeal, didn’t. What happened in that hospital changed Trista and Jeremi Lloyd her guardian knows some of what transpired but not all of it. Trista’s fiancé Demion is Jeremi’s brother, so Jeremi is fiercely loyal and protective of her. While Trista is recovering from the accident she is living with Jeremi, suffering from terrible nightmares and mental instability. Jeremi has been keeping a huge secret from Trista, one doctors say she couldn’t handle.

When being first introduced to Trista you instantly know something is not quite right with her. As the story goes on and you find out why she was institutionalized and why she did some of the things she did, you really feel for the poor girl. What those doctors did to her is unforgivable and unimaginable. Jeremi thought he was doing right by her and following along with what the doctors suggested. It sure would be a crazy world if these things were really happening in hospitals! I already have the “white coat” syndrome! Eek!

The plot was very original and not like anything I’ve ever read before. That being said, at times dialogue between characters wasn’t cohesive, and the story didn’t seem to flow that smoothly. But all in all, it was a very interesting read. The end has an interesting surprise and I look forward to seeing what that might lead to for Trista and Jeremi.


Tyffani Clark Kemp

Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she’s probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don’t have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quite, but she always has a story to tell.
