Sandra Raine is an excellent writer. The story was written so well that I almost felt as though I was Jane, myself. Raine has a knack for describing the scene with perfect precision. Her narrative was meticulous and easy to follow. I will say that the story is very brutal and detailed as Raine depicts every aspect of the scene perfectly. I would recommend the story but if you are squeamish, this story may not be for you. Looking forward to reading other books by Sandra Raine.

This book is very captivating and I couldn’t put it down. Towards the end gets so emotional. A must read

I have no idea how this book even made it to kindle. Very badly written with alot of spelling and grammar mistakes. I really pushed myself to try and finish reading but couldnt finish the book as it just seemed to ramble on and on. I am aware that this sort of thing happens in the real world but the way it was written turned the story into a lame duck. I feel the author enjoyed writing this for the gruesome and sick detail alone rather than producing a quality read, which in itself is sick and twisted.

A great read another day with no housework being done

Very explicit and descriptive work of fiction. The end seems like a clusterf*ck of everything you least expected. Like the author didn’t fully think out the ending from the beginning. The typo’s didn’t bother me, makes me think a bit harder to put the sentences together. Two stars because I did read it. I just don’t feel like I got anything out of it. Just a slew of rape, torture, and heartbreak.

Big Disappointment….. How long is this story going to go on?????? Would have thought once Diamond found her sister everything would have been great for her and it would end her being happy. Shocker….. No End in Sight!!!!

Too much sympathy for men who did way too many horrible things. It made for an unbelievable story. That they would go from being vicious rapists to compassionate men. I feel like I wasted my brain /time reading it.

Hush captured me from the outset I covered a tangled emotions from outrage to shock to disgust it was unforgettable
however this is just a good take without any of the impact of the previous instalments . So sadly disappointing.
Just to mention there were spelling mistakes throughout including the wrong spelling if compliment/complement!!

I have been completely engrossed with this story line. As soon as starting to read, tearing myself away is impossible

Horrible book. The grammar, sentence layouts and choice of words is appalling. I had to stop reading after the first couple of pages when the writer described in great detail about paedophilia. Despicable. I’d give it no stars if it were an option!

I love this book and the whole series, next to the crank series I have to say this is my new favorite author iv read them all in the past few months just got the newest one Blood can’t wait to start it, I can’t believe all these bad rratings ppl have given I can’t believe that English teacher personally if you are reading a book and know how to read past 7th grade Grammer shouldn’t matter! It only matters how the story makes you feel and all I want to do is find out what’s next, I giv my husband updates after each chapter! Keep it up Sandra Raine can’t wait for the next book

I chose this as 5 starts because I truely enjoyed this book. There was things I liked and disliked of course. But what I liked so far better than what I didn’t like. It was fast paced in reading in my opinion which is good. I loved the drama lol I guess that’s why someone would read a book like this tho right. I love the characters and how Sandra Raine put all if not most of their point of views in here to see all sides of the story it’s great and that’s what I love the most. Tho I can say if you are sinstive to prostitution, gangs, or any type of crime you shouldn’t read this or any of here other books for they are not pretty and not happy go lucky books all tho you can see some happiness if you like at the gray and not the black and white of it. I can’t wait for the books to come and look forward to them

I am so in love with these books! Can’t wait for the next to come out. Seriously never a dull moment. If your just glancing at this book and trying to decide if you want to read it, you definitely do but start from the beginning, they are all amazing. I also love how the author goes back and refreshes your memory of the characters.

i really enjoyed it but thought it would be a longer read. The first one was brilliant even though it was quite cruel but could not stop reading.The only thing i did not like about hushed was that i wanted to read more.

These books are terrible. Terrible plot, appallingly written (I mean, really appalling) – yet somehow weirdly compelling as I found myself parting with actual money for them. No one to blame but myself for that. Hence the one star. I don’t quite know how she did it. Will it buy the next trashy installment? Probably. But only ever on my kindle so no one can see what I’m reading.

very gripping, cant put down book

The words hold deep pain of the human tragedy of human trafficking, but deep hope for eventual freedom for the victims. Highly recommended!

I refused to rate the first book ‘Hush’ as there is no allowance for zero or negative stars..and in my opinion even those would’ve been nice. The spelling and grammatical errors were so HORRENDOUS it was impossible to enjoy the book. Not to mention the author’s need to include every sick act that she could remember, invent or regurgitate in such detail that it seemed forced almost manic.
This second book makes a for an easier read. The author must have gotten spell check and decided to leave the readers to use our imagination instead of drowning us in unnecessary details.
The premise of the story is great. Too bad it wasn’t written by a decent author. ***Save yourself a few hours you won’t get back..imagine the worst that could happen to children in the hands of pedophiles…now you know the story.***

This a a great series. Only thing about it is we get really into the book and it ends on a cliffhanger and I have to wait months for the next part. Ugh!
on August 31, 2016
It pains me to say this but I didn’t care for this book! It was a much to do about nothing! I loved the other books in the series however I felt this one was filler and just another away to make more money!
Now about the story I did not care for the fact that 2 gay for pay guys go from hustlers to ruthless gang members in a blink of an eye just not very believable Or that it appears Jane will become another statistic living the life she tried so hard to get out of!
on January 30, 2017
I have enjoyed all the books so far but the frustrating thing in these books is the editing or lack of editing of the words to and too which are not used in the correct context.
