Another great book!
We meet Raven, a seventeen year old girl who lives a poor life with her step father Ben who is an alcoholic.
Ben owes debt to lots of people and places, one of those being the Maddox family. The sole heir of said family, Gideon gets in contact with Ben and demands to see him. Raven worries what Gideon will do to Ben, as she thinks he's a strict business owner so she goes instead to see Gideon and to try to work things out with him.
From there on we see Raven having to work for Gideon's fashion company making clothes. She stays on Gideon's estate as a prisoner or so it seems at first. When Raven starts seeing ghosts she thinks she's going crazy. While Raven is at Gideon's, Ben is at a hospital.
We see many emotions throughout this book. I honestly picked it up because I heard that it was a "Beauty And The Beast" retelling and that's not a bad way to describe it, although there are some obvious differences - Gideon isn't a beast and there aren't any talking objects (that's where some of the ghosts come in I think).
There is a villain in this book, whom I hated - they were very evil. Also there were 2 best friend characters of Raven, who helped her get through things that Gideon couldn't.
And of course, a love story...need I say more?
I give this book 4 stars. It had a slow beginning but really picked up in the middle and the ending was good. It makes it seem like there might be a book 2, although I'm not sure this is the case unfortunately.
