in Reader Questions

Happy Reader Question day!!! And I already have one ready and waiting for us.  Michelle needs our help with an emotionally angsty (abuse) sounding one, and I KNOW someone here knows which one it is.

In fact… you know what? I feel like I’ve READ this one. I remember a seen or two like this… and the two children bond, and it’s horrific. I KNOW THIS ONE!!! I’ve reviewed it, even. A closet… and a basement come to mind?

Michelle asks:

I’ve already posted on Amazon and hope your readers can help me locate this book regarding Foster Care abuse:

It is an unfortunate story of a teenage girl sent to live with ‘foster parents” who also have a teenage boy and she suspects he is being abused by them. Turns out the horrible foster parents use the boy to ‘abuse’ her in front on them (bedroom, shower).

There is a second book were he is an adult and cuts himself during the act of sex with various partners because of what he was forced to do as a teenage. Any help would be great…I would love to see if this ended up being a HEA for the two unlucky teenagers as they grew up. Thank you!

Anyone know it right off the bat? I’m gonna do a search through my reviews in the meantime.

And while we’re at it, let’s list all the similar-sounding ones, in case more of us are looking for books like these…

Ela: The beginning totally sounded like it could be Bang (book 1 of the Black Lotus series) but the sequels don’t sound what the reader is looking for…

Maryse: I read Bang!!! Yes… possibly why I was remembering this… but I think I’m also remembering another one. But it *could* be Bang… I THINK IT’S BANG!!! (my review)

Amy: Leo by Mia Sheridan reminds me of certain aspects of the description…..

Maryse: Yes! That’s another one that I’ve read (and might be thinking of)…

Chris: Sounds a lot like Never Let You Go (a modern fairytale) by Katy Regnery. Good book.

Kelly: The Surrender Series by Lydia Michaels? Book 1 is Falling In (The Surrender Trilogy Book 1)

I wrote Tomorrow’s Lies, a moving story in which two foster teens, Flynn and Jaynie, are living in an awful foster care situation. Despite all odds, these two cobble together a family and ultimately fall in love. Tomorrow’s Lies is currently a nominee in the 2016 Indie Excellence Awards.

Thank you everyone for your help. Maryse it is the book Bang that you mentioned. As for what I thought was the second book, I was wrong. Thanks again Maryse. Love your website. I check it out almost daily for the latest releases and bargains. Keep up the great work!
