Living and working on a campground with her dogs is not where Sloane Walker saw herself at twenty-seven. But then again, not a lot has gone right for her since her step-father kidnapped her at twelve years old and scarred her both physically and mentally for life. Those actions should’ve left him rotting in prison for the rest of his life, not seeing him out on good behavior and giving him free rein to track Sloane down to make ‘amends.’
But that’s not her only problem, as if she needs more than one. Her second problem comes in the form of the masked stalker that slides into her room at night and takes what he pleases, making sure Sloane enjoys every second of it. What starts as a fantasy soon becomes something inescapable for them both, and Sloane might have to face up to a very important fact about her new friend.
He’s unhinged, psychotic, and utterly obsessed with her. And while those should be very bad things, Sloane can’t help thinking that maybe they aren’t so bad at all, no matter what that might mean for her sanity or her safety in the end.

Review by Twinsie Dee
Sloane was just your typical girl, she worked at a campground has 2 dogs who keep her company, and her mom loves her unconditionally. Well, she also has a past with some high anxiety and ptsd after being kidnapped by her stepdad and the age of 12. now she has came a long way since that day she still is on high alert, especially with living next to a bunch of woods and not being able to see what could be lurking in then at night, and the fact that one night when she was pleasuring herself, she felt someone grab her leg, next thing Sloane knew she had a mask man on top of her, but he did something she never expected, would he kill her or will he take what he wants and leave her alone. she had no idea. this was a great story, a little slow in the beginning for my liking and a few grammar errors but other then that it was a great story that keeps you engaged till the very end.
