Review: THE TRAP by Beverley Kendall

 I'm soooo looking forward to TODAY's release of Beverley Kendall's TRAPPED after reading the prequel THE TRAP.

THE TRAP is the story of 18 year old Paige telling Mitch, her 19 year old boyfriend of three years, that she is pregnant and the emotional roller coaster they go on individually as they digest the news. Mitch has the most difficulty coming to terms with the situation, while Paige has no choice but to deal with it.

THE TRAP packed a wallop into my emotions as I read this prequel to Beverley Kendall's TRAPPED.  I was so sucked into the storyline that I teared up a couple of times feeling Paige's pain and anger at Mitch.

While I understand that Mitch was feeling betrayed and in his immaturity he was looking for an out, he was such an ass to Paige. The way she took his rejection was heartbreaking yet she showed her true strength, she does NOT need a man. Mitch was a complete dick to her and she did not deserve that.

Before Paige lets him back into her and Brianna's lives, he has some major groveling to do. I can't wait for TRAPPED to come out so I can jump back on this ride.

Official Blurb:

Looking back, I should have seen it coming.

Paige didn’t like that I went so far away to university. But it was going to only be for two years. She'd join me after she did her two years at community college. I thought we could swing that no problem. We were solid.

But she hated the distance. She hated not seeing me every day. She complained that I didn’t come home enough. She hated that for months on end, texting and phone calls were our only form of communication. It wasn’t enough.

She'd ask about the girls on campus. She’d gotten it into her head that girls were always making a play for me. I laughed and told her, even if that were true, I’d never cheat on her. She didn't seem completely reassured by that.

The bottom line is, Paige thought she was losing me. She wanted me home with her. But I could never imagine the level she'd sink to—the trap she’d set to make that happen.

And like an idiot I walked right into it.

And it’s a mistake I'm going to have to pay for the rest of my life.
