Vulnerable – A Review
Updated: Jan 18
I read this book from cover to cover in a day. I just couldn’t put it down.
Beth is a young woman with horrific past experiences and a wounded soul. When she meets Shane, a confident, self-assured and drop dead gorgeous billionaire CEO of security company, she is swept off her feet but struggles to let him in. She suffers from panic attacks, doesn’t date, and always sleeps with a nightlight on. Shane breaks down her walls, makes her feel safe and sneaks into her heart before she realizes what’s happening. But is he all he says he is? With secrets to keep, Shane struggles with his conscience. Telling her the truth could break her, not telling her the truth will break them, because there’s no way she won’t find out eventually. This is a great story that will keep you turning the pages till the very end. It deals with childhood trauma, PTSD, and mental disorders in a very sensitive but honest way. Shane sometimes comes across as overbearing, possessive and overprotective, but I feel that the author described their relationship perfectly. He has a need to control, to protect and possess the one he loves but it is exactly what Beth needs. She allows him to be that way as it makes her feel safe but she still has all the freedom and control over her life that she wants. It’s a compromise that works perfectly for them.
Read it — you won’t regret it.
