    I started reading this book early evening last night (taking a break from the history book). I continued reading through the night -and kept on reading until mid morning. (never touching my phone, or computer. Nothing distracted me, (not the laundry, not my daily 'to-do' list). I didn't even taking a break for a morning cup of tea.

    I literary was having an 'affair' with this novel. Be warned, The reading experience is like climbing over a high brick wall --entering private property -- then realizing you can't get back to where you came from.

    A couple of times I was scared S**hless! ...yet overall what I'm left with is deeper emotions: sadness, anger, grief, love, and extreme gratitude to Chevy Stevens. She did something brilliant with this mystery-thriller. She deepened awareness and expanded understanding of girls.

    Girls bonding: (or women),-sisters/mothers & daughters/friendships....is as important as breathing air. "Girls" are the warriors at the side of "THOSE GIRLS"

    Weaving realism with suspenseful intimacy --the way Chevy Stevens has done -- is fully engaging -and equally valuable.

    A couple of quotes --which I personally related to (each for different personal reasons):

    1) "I'd never have a father now. I started to cry hard, and I let myself, let it come out until my face was sore and my eyeballs ached. I felt empty and exhausted, but a little calmer."

    2) "We took almost a week to make origami cranes".

    "We spent hours threading the string through the cranes, fitting each inside the other carefully staggering the colors until they made a beautiful rainbow". Skylar had told us that the Japanese believed that the wings of cranes could carry souls up to paradise."

    The epilogue which Chevy Stevens wrote is sooooooo beautiful .... my eyes were red!

    Wonderful Book!

    Thank you very much to the publisher...to Netgalley... to the author!!!!

    Wow!! I just finished this book about an hour ago. Fantastic read!

    I have enjoyed all of Chevy Stevens books but this one is probably my favorite.

    I have found that lately it's taken quite a while for me to get into the books I'm reading.

    Not so with this book. I was HOOKED from the start. It packs such an emotional punch that even when I had to put it down for a few minutes it was all I could think about. I rushed through everything I had to do until I could pick it up again.

    I fell in love wit

    Not so with this book. I was HOOKED from the start. It packs such an emotional punch that even when I had to put it down for a few minutes it was all I could think about. I rushed through everything I had to do until I could pick it up again.

    I fell in love with the Campbell sisters right off and Skylar was another amazing character. So easy to read and follow along. I could really feel for these girls and the amazing strength that they had to get through the horrors in their lives. Girls who keep trying to do the right thing and often end up making a wrong choice. Some of the characters that they encounter are nothing less than pure evil but also thankfully some other characters who help them in ways they could never have thought possible.

    This is definitely one of the best books I've read in quite some time. A terrifying and engrossing story where the author painted such a vivid pictures that at times I was literally yelling out loud and shaking with anger one moment then sobbing the next. While you may question some of the girls actions you will always root for them.

    Much more than your average suspense thriller. A gripping and chilling story of family, love, tragedy, survival and revenge! With all of the twists and turns I was in suspense from beginning to end. This one will stay with me for a long time.

    I can't wait for more from Chevy Stevens.

    Highly recommended!!!

    Ugh, this book was brutal!! Very emotional and full of angst. I had to take breaks, the tragic events these sisters endured were horrific.

    Those Girls is a suspenseful read! Divided in 3 parts and don't skip the epilogue. The first part is tough reading, but if you're still with it after that, it's a good, addicting read. It shines a light on the bond between 3 sisters and the secrets they share.

    So Hiddles, what did we think of this one?

    Oh come on, that’s a bit harsh dontcha think????

    That’s right, think about it. Take all the time you need. Oh, you already have a new reaction???

    Yes. I can get on board with the eye roll – and yet somehow I COULD. NOT. STOP. READING. THIS.

    Alright, here’s the synopsis (Dear plagiarists, please don’t steal these from me. I’m not very good at writing them):

    Alright, here’s the synopsis (Dear plagiarists, please don’t steal these from me. I’m not very good at writing them):

    is about three sisters being raised by their often absentee and nearly always drunken father. When Daddy Dearest returns home and begins beating on the oldest of the three girls, well . . .

    No shit. Fearing they will end up placed in separate foster homes, the girls run away – straight into the arms of some terrifying strangers.

    . Fast-forward 18 years and the girls find themselves dealing with a real blast from the past.

    This one kinda had everything but the . . .

    Oh wait, there it is. Momma June, get your big ass melon out of my kitchen sink . . . and do the damn dishes! If you can deal with the fact that

    bad that could possibly happen to these girls/women is something that is

    going to happen to these girls/women, you might be okay with it too. Although 100% farfetched, this was wicked fast-paced and kind of un-put-down-able. Please note: I was provided a manuscript of this novel (which has never happened to me before) so I have no idea what will/will not remain in the final edited version.

    I was also pleasantly surprised that one thing I was almost

    was going to end up happening, never happened at all. What is that thing, you ask? Why the seriously forced romantic subplot between the poor, damaged, woman and the dude who helped save the day – who,

    , just so happened to look like this . . .

    Thank Tom Cruise there was no “yes, my family might be in danger, but we should make with the sexytimes first and

    save them” narrative in addition to all of the other ingredients thrown into this pot. The absence of that coupled with the fact that I’m kind of a bit of a Chevy Stevens fangirl helped generate an end result of a 3 Star rating from yours truly.

    : This is a book that contains graphic violence and rape scenes. It’s not a story everyone will be comfortable reading.

    I don't even know where to start on this one. I'm a huge

    fan; I've read all her books and eagerly anticipate them each year. So naturally I was all set to devour this one, and completely shocked when it felt like I was reading another author. Don't get me wrong, this was an easy read and was thrilling. It just didn't work for me in comparison to her past novels.

    I'm not going to rehash the plot as it is complicated and spoilery, but basically these 3 girls go from one bad situation

Don't get me wrong, this was an easy read and was thrilling. It just didn't work for me in comparison to her past novels.

    I'm not going to rehash the plot as it is complicated and spoilery, but basically these 3 girls go from one bad situation to worse. I had a hard time following the story at times because it just didn't flow for me. It was so hard for me to accept that these 3 girls who supposedly had been self sufficient and had all kinds of street smarts were naive enough on multiple occasions to get drawn into the horrific situations that occurred. I was really intrigued throughout PART ONE of the book; even though it was extremely unrealistic I didn't care. I was hooked. Then PART TWO came along and it just sort of lost me. This is probably all me though; I have been reading some top notch books lately which could be why this one felt so bland and predictable. I feel I'm in the minority on this one, as it has received some great ratings, but if you are new to Ms. Stevens I would suggest starting with her first book,

    , and going from there. I will most definitely be giving her next work another go; I'm hoping this one was just a fluke for me! :(

    Dear Ms. Stevens,

    I'm sorry, but I think it's time we broke up.

    I loved you when you wrote

    and

    I do know. It was

    . That sucked big time. I'm sorry.

    Too much happening in your book with flat characters turns my heart off.

    This one. I thought I was going to love.

    I think to keep me relating to characters that are in my books I have to at least have some belief in their stories. Be it fantasy, romance or thrillers like this one.

    I was actually with you in this

    I was actually with you in this book until about half way through it and I realized we were headed down that path.

    The bad guys were assholes. I admit. But then when the girls started over, I just found that the book had given up. No more caring about them. I just wanted it to end.

    Thanks for understanding.

    I really enjoyed the first part of this book. Told by the youngest of three sisters, there was a tension that gripped me. I wanted to know how these girls escape their early life and what would become of them. Eighteen years later in the second half of the book, it all started falling apart for me and I even questioned what I had enjoyed in the beginning.

    Those girls had a gritty upbringing, so why are they so naive? There is specific mention of being taught mechanical things by their father, but

I wanted to know how these girls escape their early life and what would become of them. Eighteen years later in the second half of the book, it all started falling apart for me and I even questioned what I had enjoyed in the beginning.

    Those girls had a gritty upbringing, so why are they so naive? There is specific mention of being taught mechanical things by their father, but they're so helpless when their truck needs repair. And seriously, would a drunken abusive father really teach his daughters such things? Even in 1997, why are these girls so trusting of strange men?

    Now in 2015, they are still making incredibly dumb decisions. Those girls are now in their thirties and none are married, they're still working menial jobs, and they're still drinking and smoking weed. I think they're living in limbo and there's no growth in their characters. And unfortunately, Skylar, the youngest sister's daughter, follows in their footsteps. She's a carbon copy. Has her mother passed no worldly knowledge on to her daughter?

    So while the book was an easy, quick read, and I enjoyed parts of it, it just didn't work for me.

    I have nothing positive to say about this novel. It contains a storyline about young teenaged girls who were abused by their father and then get kidnapped and sexually abused by teenaged boys.

    I had previously read two books by Chevy Stevens and abuse type storylines appear to be her niche. I am not impressed. This was despicable.

    I always do my utmost to finish a book but listen to the audiobook brought forth feelings in me that made me ill, palms sweaty. Stomach rolling. I have read several books by authors about abuse I admit that I gravitate towards them but Chevy Stevens does not handle them with care. I will never read or listen to one of her books ever again.
