Mostly it deals with Ben's self destructive behavior after his mother's death. He feels guilty about the time he stayed away from her and about how much he hurt Dahlia too. He knows she's lost to him and he is finally at peace with it. He also seems to remember a pair of green eyes haunting him and staying away from Bell is proving harder than he thought.
His spiral down hits rock bottom and we get a glimpse of him resurfacing from the ashes.
I still think Ben has a lot to redeem himself from. Cheating is something I usually don't forgive in books.
I hope by reading Frayed that he will convince me to like him and root for his happiness.
“If there is a moment in time that comes to alter the course of your life forever- mine would be the day Caleb Holt told me I had to disappear. I don’t even know who I am anymore. I’m alone and left to pick up the pieces to a life I don’t have. Rock bottom. It’s a phrase I never thought I’d use to describe myself, but it’s the only one that fits.”
Ben had it all- a wonderful job, family, and fiancé… until his job as an investigative reporter took him too deep and he was forced to fake his death in order to keep his fiancé Dahlia safe.
I started this book really excited to read Ben’s side of the story. It was interesting to see the reason why he “died” and how everything went down through his eyes. I hope when we read Frayed we will see more of what happened. It was also fun to see S’belle again! I can’t wait to read more about these two in their full length story!
