Amy-Beth - Mistaken Identity

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Stacey & Susan

When two worlds collide how many will survive? 

I've been captured for six years and yet no one has bothered to help me, the one person I thought might of helped disappeared all of a sudden. Each day for the last six years i've had to deal with him touching me, telling me what he wants to do and I can't stand it. 

I have to find out who she is and why she is free and I am here locked away and used as a puppet, I need to know everyone I love is ok. Although my gut instinct is telling me I may already be too late. 

My name is Morgan and this is my story.

When I read the blurb of Mistaken Identity I was really intrigued; I've read a lot of crime/thriller/mystery before (it's one of my favourite genres) but nothing similar to this book, or anything by the author.

In Mistaken Identity we meet Morgan who has been held captive by Harry for six long years, and suffered grotesquely in his hands. She has been mistaken for someone else - Wyatt's girlfriend, Summer. (Wyatt is Harry's nephew). She eventually realises this but doesn't let on that she knows.

This is a short, quick read, with dark themes including rape and torture. The way Amy-Beth has written it though didn't gross me out, it just made me cringe a little and feel immensely sorry for Morgan. I like the way it is written from different viewpoints though some chapters seemed a little short.

The story does end on a cliffhanger and I now need to know what happens next! Four of five stars from me, a recommended read.

So this is my first read of Amy Beth's but I had been warned it was a little dark. The violence, and graphic sex scenes were sometimes a little hard to handle but I think it shows the authors ability to write. My only problem was the grammar and typos. These were a little distracting but didn't affect the story overall.

The story of the messed up world of the King family. Headed up by Harry and all the turmoil that follows him. With a girl captured and tortured, we see her spirit destroyed beyond belief as everything and everyone she loves is taken away from her. Along with her spirit to find a way out of the hell she lives in for years.

Her spirit is now damaged but I shall do everything in my power to build her back up and have her whole once more.

Harry has finally succeeded in cutting off all my ties to the outside world, to freedom. First Wyatt and now my mum, everyone has gone. 

Bailey, Harry's son and who seems to be much like his father turns out to be the only person willing to comfort the poor girl they believe to be Summer...but at what price will his feelings for this young girl change things?

This is one cluster f**k of a mess I've got myself in and I really don't see a way out of it. Someone is going to get seriously hurt. I'm such an idiot for not sticking to the plan.
