Description

After a day out with a group of her friends, Chloe Winters disappears.
 
Held prisoner in luxurious surroundings and forced into a degrading and isolated life, she is left coping with depression and desperate loneliness. Knowing she may never see her family and friends again and grieving for what she has lost, images of her former life become nightmares. Experimented on and subjected to repeated physical, emotional and sexual abuse, Chloe is sure it will only end in a painful death.
 
There is but one bright spot in the dark days of her captivity; surely it can’t be love that’s she’s feeling, just gratitude for the way this man treats her. How can it be anything else?
 

When she is finally saved in a police raid, the informant that led to her rescue is strangely desperate to meet her. Even as she slowly recovers from her experiences, Chloe knows that her abductor has no intention of letting her escape so easily…

After a day out with a group of her friends, Chloe Winters disappears.
 
Held prisoner in luxurious surroundings and forced into a degrading and isolated life, she is left coping with depression...

After a day out with a group of her friends, Chloe Winters disappears. The author’s writing style lends itself perfectly to the genre. She knows exactly when to end a scene and mount suspense. The characters are well-drawn and believable. The plot is perfectly paced, holds your interest, and keeps you guessing.

This is my first novel by author Margot Bentham and I found it extremely interesting. The blurb read very much up my street and really did not give too much of this book away.

We meet Chloe who is the main character in this novel and wow this is such a gripping novel. I do not want to give too much away but she is being held captive and this is such a very different read to anything that I have ever read.

Really worth a read but do be aware that lots of topics that are in this novel are heartbreaking and quite difficult to read at times.

Thanks to NetGalley, Margot Bentham and the publishers for allowing me a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Holy Moly, what did I just read?

Scarlet's Story is a twisted and sadistic book that will have you gasping as you read along. I am not sure I really knew what to anticipate while reading the synopsis and I definitely could not judge what would be within the pages after viewing the cover. I mean, the cover is adorable and looks light and fluffy. This story is anything but light and fluffy. I was completely deceived and I loved it! I loved not knowing what would happen and being shocked with every surprise.

This was an easy read that I flew right through. The character development was on point. The plot kept me engaged and the Margot Bentham narrated this story with perfection.
