I did like the story. It is well written for such a short story. There is to be a second book A Cross To Bare. Since this is to be a series it would have been much better if there was more character development. I felt like I was thrown into the middle of the story. I like the little I know of Nikki, Damon, Jared, and Trevor. It has the feel of prequel novella. Bottom line is I’m glad I borrowed it. I actually think it’s a 2.5 stars but gave a 3 because of the potential of the series.
