Synopsis

WHAT IF THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE TURNED INTO YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE?

When nineteen-year-old Naomi Stone is snatched from her husband at knifepoint on the night of their wedding and taken to a deserted cemetery, she knows her life is finished. Drugged and disorientated, she loses consciousness as she lies in an open grave with a gun to her head.

But the following day, she mysteriously awakes to find herself unharmed and secured to a bed. She's in a beautiful bedroom in a secluded cottage in open countryside. Only one person knows she’s there – the man in the balaclava who’s holding her, feeding her, revealing nothing. Naomi senses the unfolding of a plan. She should be on honeymoon in the Caribbean. Instead, she’s trapped with an emotionless psycho with no hope of escape . . . And his voice is chillingly familiar.

Who is he? What does he want? What's happened to her husband? Where is she? Will anyone find her before it's too late?
Review

Sometimes you read a book that is a breath of fresh air and is exactly what you were looking for but you didn’t even realise it. This perfectly sums up this book for me. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book but it absolutely blew me away. Either Side of Midnight is an incredible suspense novel that will keep you guessing throughout but gets even more amazing once the truth is revealed.

The book is told from multiple pov’s though the main focus by far is Naomi’s perspective and it also alternates between present time which is this confusion Naomi has woken up in and the year leading to that moment. This means there are two aspects to the story, Naomi’s bizarre kidnapping and the seemingly simple romance story of her starting at University and meeting the guy that will become her Husband.
Parts of this book are very much what you would expect in a typical New Adult romance novel but the rest is very unique. This book is far from being a typical NA!

I really loved Naomi. At the start she seems quite weak and gullible but she grows into this strong character who won’t let anyone mess with her. She ends up being the sort of character who plays with fire in the hope that those who have wronged her will get burned.
As for the rest of the characters, well, let’s just say I feel a mix of hatred and love and then leave it at that :P

Either Side of Midnight is perfect for readers who like books that will fuck with your mind. Fans of the Consequences series by Aleatha Romig in particular will love this book. A must read!
