Sonia needs our help, but there’s a TON of detail in here, so proceed with caution. I’ll try and include spoiler-alerts if I see ‘em. :)

Ohhhhh boy I just read her whole description and I TOTALLY get why she had to put it down for awhile. This one sounds like it could make your blood run cold…

She asks:

I read this book and had it on my currently reading shelves on goodreads. But I had stop reading it cause emotionally I found it hard to read. So stupid me deleted it on gd.

Anyway it was about a girl in a cult family. Like the book Wife Number Seven by Melissa brown?

Anyhow she is supposed to marry the hero dad. Who thinks he’s the prophet. They where kids but in love. So I think when the boy 15 and she’s 12 or something. The boy helps her escape. But they get caught the boy gets shot and the girl keeps running. She escapes always thinking and regretting what happened to the boy? She lives with her grandparents who saved her. The prophet guy that she was supposed to marry has 7 sons.

He beats the kid up and punishes him. But also brainwashes him that he was going against his religion. That the girl had the devil in her etc.

The hero grows up and stalks the girl. Because he’s so brainwashed that he wants revenge and to bring her back. So that his dad can marry her.  He kidnaps her and keeps her in this dungeon place. Chained to the celling. With a glass window in the room where he can see her but she can’t see him.

She’s weak and hungry and asks for food or drink. And he flings gutter sh!t on her. So she’s covered in pee and sh!t.

Meanwhile his dad wife. Who also brainwashes the hero. She’s been sexually abusing since the escaping incident. But she keeps saying that she’s curing his soul.

The hero is very good looking dark hair and grey eyes. so he uses that to his advantage.

The heroine has brown hair and brown eyes. I can’t remember anything else. The hero also had a biblical name. But the hero and heroine had nicknames for each other.

Oh also the heroine mum liked the hero dad and shacked up with them. But then later died I think. So when they initially met they where siblings. But later the hero dad wanted to get married to her.

It’s a dark read. I had stop reading it. Cause I found it hard how the author showed flashbacks. To how sweet the guy was a kid. They were madly in love. But as a adult he sounds like a crazed, full of revenge guy. Plus the heroine recognised him and then just gives up. Thinking that the suffering he had to go through was her fault. She blames herself for leaving him.

The hero kills the heroine grandparents by shooting them then burning the house down. Heroine unaware she thinks it was just a accident fire.

She inherits money when she turns 21yrs old. Decides to go back near the compound get a detective to find the hero. But she doesn’t realises that this whole time the hero stalking her. She’s on the highway when the hero crashes her car and she has a accident faints. Only to be awakened at the cold dungeon.

I can’t remember anything else.

Okay for SURE someone knows this book, here. Anyone wanna guess?

Jessica: I’m pretty sure it’s WAKE by DS Wright.
