Posted:  May 19, 2015

Breath of ScandalOn a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family. And she never forgot their spoiled son, who, with his two friends, changed her life forever. Someday, somehow, she'd return, exact a just revenge -- and free herself from fear, and the powerful family that could destroy her.

This is a very intense book right from the beginning. Taking place in a small town Jade, who is a senior in high school and has been dating just one guy Graham the whole time are both waiting for their results on whether they got full ride scholarships to college? But the local rich man in town has a son who is in the same class and all he does is party and pick on Graham and he also has always wanted Jade. The day she finds out about the scholarships she takes a ride with her best friend out to tell her boyfriend when the friends’ car runs out of gas. Who comes along is the rich guy with his two hang along and they act like they are going to give them a ride but when Jade gets in they lock the doors and take off leaving the friend. Then the worst happens for Jade as she is raped by the three of them and left out by the river. She makes it back to the road and gets a ride to the hospital and though she does everything right there it just gets worse from there as the sheriff is in the pocket of the man who basically owns the town and then her mother does not want her to press charges and her friend after hours of questioning is upset with her and does not support her story. After a few days she breaks up with her boyfriend and then after a few months go by you find out one day that he kills himself and the reason why is explained more as the book goes along. She ends up leaving town and vowing to get revenge against all the ones who have done this to her. You get to follow her life as she makes it to college and how some people are put in her life to help her. You also have a second story going on about a man named Dillon and these two people will connect it just takes a little while for this to happen. The writing is excellent and the characters are full of depth and you feel for her and as the story goes along you are wondering at the same time can she find healing. This is a powerful story and a very good book. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 5 stars.
