He Found Me (book one in the He Found Me series)

I cannot believe this was a debut novel~Whitney Barbetti NAILED IT! ...I just loved everything about it, and am in awe of this authors fab, unique debut into a world overrun with cookie-cutter plots and characters. I am looking forward to much more from her and can’t wait to see where she takes these characters next.

When I was seventeen, I disappeared. I walked out the door of my apartment with a backpack and never looked back. I left the life of Cora Mitchell behind, seeking freedom from my real-life nightmare.

But my freedom came with a cost. I lived a fictitious life for the next six years, never letting anyone close enough to see underneath the façade that was Andra Walker.
I was content with my simple little life.

Until I met Julian.

And the moment I started allowing myself to open up, allowing someone to see through the superficial, was the very same moment the Monster from my past would return to find me.
