Traitor by Alyson Santos
on June 6th, 2017
They may be refugees but Andie Sorenson never chose to flee when government forces abduct her to the “safety” of a military-operated compound. Caught in an ugly civil war no one understands, she’s now a number, a uniform, her future reduced to three stale meals a day with the strangers who share her fate. She’s nothing, no one—until a random act of compassion and an electric smile turn her prison into a refuge.
It’s his eyes, his heart, his beautiful soul drowning in an ocean of secrets. Lance Corporal Kaleb Novelli is an enigma, but with each plunge through another layer, Andie finds herself captured in a way she never imagined. She knows they have no future. They can’t even have a present, but that doesn’t stop her heart from committing to a man she can never have. The only one she trusts in this battle of lies and manipulation.
But they’ve found their paradise in hell, and she can’t shake the feeling that Kaleb Novelli is not just a player. He’s the game.
Just for full disclosure, this is not my normal genre. I have read some but it’s not something I seek out. Alyson wrote some of my favorite books last year and I wanted to give this a shot. I really enjoyed what she has done here. The characters were love-able and you want to root for them. The world building she has done is really good. There is suspense and romance and it’s all blended so well the story is just that good. If you like dystopian or if you think this appeals to you even a little bit then grab it and dive right in. I hope you like it as much as I do.
