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?

    "Exciting Adventure!"

    This one is a nail-biting story. It is one you don’t want to miss. Every time the narrator said Because I Can, I got chills.

    "Suspense Filled!"

    Suspense...that is what I like, and Elaine Marie gives you that in this short but thrilling book. Jenna, a college student is attacked on her college campus. While unable to see her attacker, he leaves her with the answer of why is he doing this in his horrifying whisper, "Because I can". This whisper haunts her dreams. After being dismissed by the campus police, she decides to take control of her life, Jenna wipes her slate clean and comes back a new woman. Nic, the guy Jenna sees on the dance floor is all of sudden the new guy popping up on campus. The chemistry between Nic and Jenna is hot and their feelings grow. Is he the one? Can she trust him? Maybe he is the attacker? There a few twists and turns in this book to keep you wondering what is going on. The answers are not always transparent and leave you wanting to know more. The suspense is there right until the end!

    Carly Lynne is the narrator. This is my first listen of a book by her and found her performance lacking. She spoke too fast, and her ability to switch between characters was not always distinguishable. The quality of the story carried through this narration though.

    "Enjoyed the Story"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I liked the story. The author did a great job with the characters. The story had all the elements of a thriller, even to the point of the reader/listener saying Jenna "don't do it". And, of course, she does. The relationship with her and Nick was developed pretty quickly. Glad to see that Jen finally figured out what she needed to do with her life. Not so keen on the narrator. I think the book would have been much better with a different narrator. She spoke too fast. I dropped the speed, but that didn't do it. She sounded like this narrating thing was new for her. Maybe with some practice under her belt she will do better. Switching between characters was not recognizable. I was confused a few times with the switch. I couldn't immerse myself in the characters. Maybe when she becomes more seasoned, she will master it.

    "Heroine at its best"

    A well written story about a very strong heroine that took something that happened to her and decided enough was enough. Jenna took control over her life again, she transformed herself and willed herself to find the answers that no one else would look for. With the help of a very sexy Nic, and her friend Amy, Jenna finds the closure she needs and a love she never expected.

    The narrator Carly I found did a good job, felt she read really fast in some parts but as the book went along it got much better.
