Publisher's Summary

Jenna is a victim of an attack on her college campus. After barely escaping, she manages to make her way to campus security. With the help of the security guard, the local police are called, but she soon learns no one will help her case, and the police and the college administration dismiss her accusation, leaving her feeling empty.

Tired of the whispers and looks from her classmates and professors, she decides to take charge of the situation. Tired of being a victim, she's determined to take her life back. Jenna soon undergoes a dramatic makeover...one that leaves even her best friend unable to recognize her. With her new look and the help of some online self-help videos, she begins her search for her attacker.

In her search, the one thing Jenna didn't expect to find was the handsome, new student, Nic. As she gets to know him, she learns he isn't who he claims to be. It's then Jenna begins to suspect the guy she's fallen for.

As she closes in on her attacker, she makes a few new discoveries, and she can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. As she races against time, will she be able to uncover the identity of her attacker before he strikes again?

Because I can

This audiobook is full of twists and suspense. The first chapter immediately kept my interest and all of the action scenes in this book are done incredibly well.

Very Empowering!

This book was empowering, and a little hard for me to swallow. The author knew how bad it can be to be for some, and how is deafening it can be to go through. That's all I'm going to say about the book! She is an amazing writer, and pulls you in, where you can feel each emotion being shown. And my favorite motto, she used in her book as well, knowing The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. This is the first book I have been able to listen to because I know how the character feels. Elaine Marie has many more books that I want to read and review. She has a fan now. I believe this is a wonderful book to read it empowers, encourages and shines a light to the ones that need to hear it.

So Strong

This was a great story of finding your strength after having your power taken away. Jenna was attacked but instead of dwelling on the fear and depression- she finds the strength to remake herself and look for not just revenge but vindication. I enjoyed the story line very much.

The narration was solid- I would have loved a bit more feeling/acting from the narrator but all in all, it was pretty good.

Drastic change can help overcome your fears

The story that covered in this short book starts very disturbing. Jena, the main character, was almost raped in college and now lives with fear and constant panic attracts. She does not want a professional help with her fears, but believes if justice is served, she would be better. Once realizing, it is not the case, she takes matter in her own hands, meeting on the way her love.

The narrator did a great job, she was good with different voices and emotions.

my review

Because I Can by Elaine Marie was truly a heart wrenching book. What she went through and how she kept living it was so horrible! I did think the security guard was going to be the hero and did not guess what his true occupation was. Elaine had me on my toes trying to guess her attacker and I liked playing the who done it game. I would have never guessed who all the key players were her attack. This book ended with justice served on a silver platter!

Suspenseful Mystery Romance

The story kept me on the edge from start to finish. Mousy Jenna is attacked on campus one night. Jenna has a hard time recovering, especially after the police and administration dismiss her case for lack of evidence. Jenna finally finds the courage to change her life to become stronger and more confident. As she transforms herself she is determined to find her attacker. This exhilarating story has a few twists that keep you guessing. The narrator did a good job telling the story but I felt like I needed more inflection and emotion than just speeding up her delivery. This is my first experience with both author and narrator but will definitely check out more of their work.

Very good short story

This short story was very good with mystery, tragedy and suspense romance. The narration was a little fast and the switch between characters was difficult to recognize. I received a free copy at my request.

3.5 stars

First time reading (listening to) this author and it was ok. Insta stuff which I never love but it was worth listening to although it took a while. The performance itself made it better I think.

great story

I don't normally listen to books in one go but this one did it. Great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm not sure but personally I didn't quite like the narrators voice too much for this story. She did a great job though.

Creepy

I think the saying “Because I can “ is going to creep me out for a bit. Creepy quick read.
