    Dear Ms. Stevens,I'm sorry, but I think it's time we broke up.I loved you when you wrote Still Missing and Never Knowing I do know. It was That Night. 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 thrille...

    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 ...

    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 bri...

    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, pal...

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

    2.5 StarsOh dear......I am sorry to say this novel did not work for me. It certainly begins with a bang when three teenage sisters ban together to save themselves from their drunken abusive father, but their unbelievably asinine decisions thereafter ruined the rest of the story for me. Unfortunately, I never did connect with any of the characters, and even the verbal threats and violent actions by the aggressors came across as flat and unconvinci...

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

    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 b...

    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.

    I really don't want to be a Dana downer but......the story started out terrific. Lots of action, mystery and then when I started to get to page 225 its when it went all downhill for me.It seemed rushed. unrealistic. And I do like my books to be alittle realistic. Alot of people enjoyed this book but I feel like an alien for not. These girls have been through so much but what kicked it badly was the niece searching for her aunt who went back to ca...

    This is totally 'unputdownable'.There has not been one Chevy Stevens book I have had the pleasure of reading that I haven't liked or had a small moan about. This author really knows its reader.The Campbell sisters, Jess, Courtney and Dani do not have the best of lives. They're Mother was dead. [The story tells you how she came to die]And they live with they're Father. He is one horrible man! He treats each girl terrible, he's abusive, cruel, he's...

    I wavered back and forth with my rating while reading this book. I’ll start with the parts that I loved - Chevy Stevens is a fantastic storyteller. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book and hated having to put it down when life forced me to take a break from this story. Like her other books, this one was gritty, suspenseful and had my heart in my throat during many parts.What ultimately brought down the rating for me is what I tend t...

    Here we go again--another nail biter from Chevy Stevens. And another enthralling read about females being abducted, held against their will, and abused. Yet the females become stronger from their experiences and here, three sisters form a bond they'll never break. But the R word (revenge) just won't let go of one of them, and the excitement level reaches a new level. You wonder what some people use for brains. Very good ending.

    Fourth Chevy Stevens book and none can recreate the magic of Still Missing. I think I'm done...This one started out strong; awesome relatable characters who demonstrate true perseverance and strength in dire circumstances. But then? A complete gearshift into unbelievable, frustrating, and less than credible choices.

    Initial reaction: I'll admit that as I'm sitting down to write the review on "Those Girls" by Chevy Stevens - I'm a bit at a loss for words. This book was so visceral, intense, and I couldn't help but feel right in the heart of the anger and hurt for the characters in every step of the horrific abuse they suffered. There were many moments that my hands were shaking as I listened to the audiobook, anticipating what the characters would do and hopi...

    2.0 out of 5 stars -- Three sisters escape a violent, abusive father only to end up in an even worse predicament that they barely survive. Years later, the women are still tormented and scarred by the events of that summer. One of the girls is determined to have a final reckoning, but plans go terribly awry. This is the 5th book I've read by this author and it was very much a let-down. I didn't find it suspenseful, there's no mystery, and few thr...

    WOW! I was not prepared for this. I knew it was a thriller and would most likely be good. What I got was a thriller that was dark and twisted with one of the worst male villains ever...and I couldn’t put it down! These three women went through so much darkness in their lives. It was heart breaking and so raw. I loved it and can’t wait to read more from this author.

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.I really enjoyed reading this book. How is it that I haven't read anything written by Chevy Stevens before now? This is the kind of book that I really enjoy reading and I am amazed that I somehow missed this author. I think I even own one of her earlier books but have never felt compelled to open it but I can tell you that it will not remain unread much longer.This book really opened with a ba...

    I really disliked this book. I found the characters and storyline rather unrealistic. The last 40 pages of this book was just improbable,the ending was hokey and hard to swallow.Would not recommend.

    Unbelievable, brutal, flat, predictable. I would've thrown the book across the room in frustration, but then I realized that it's a library book. I was frustrated by the stupid decisions the characters made. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because the beginning wasn't too bad.
