About Safe and Sound: 

16 year-old, Hailey Perish, knows her life can’t get much worse. Since her dad split a few years ago, Hailey’s mother has spiraled hard and fast, careening toward rock bottom and threatening to take her daughter down with her. Hailey now marks time by evictions, her mother’s poker games, and Saturday School where she voluntarily shows up for weekend detentions to secure her one promised meal of the week. She has no room for relationships, especially with someone like her childhood love and junior class golden boy, Carson Hart. Hailey trusted him once and Carson failed her. She’s determined not to let herself be hurt again.
When Hailey’s mom does the unthinkable and bets her own daughter in a high stakes poker game, Mitch, the loan shark, is all too eager and determined to collect on his debt. To him, Hailey is nothing but property. His property. And he’ll do anything to recover it. On the run from a fate that promises a much worse life than she already knows, there’s only one person in the world Hailey can call for help.
Will Carson be there for her in her darkest hour and deliver her from harm’s way safe and sound? Or will he abandon Hailey—just like he’s always done—just like they all do?
Alli Hope’s debut novel delivers an unforgettable story about love & surviving in the dark places.  
Warning: Safe & Sound contains explicit language and a scene that portrays explicit sexual abuse & molestation. We have included this in order to tell an accurate story; to be a voice for those who have none. And to bring light to an issue we believe must be brought out of the darkness and into a broader awareness. If you are sensitive to sexual abuse issues, please be advised.


My Rating:


My Review:

 I must admit it was the cover that drew me in to start, it just grabbed my attention straight away and made me read the blurb to see what the story was about.

From the first page I was drawn in. I found that this book had it's intense & happy moments and definitely brought out the emotions. We get to hear from both of the main characters, Hailey & Will. I just adored them so much, especially Hailey.

 I think Alli Hope did an amazing job and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Would I recommend? Yes, I most definitely do but be warned, there is some scenes that can be tough to read. But in the end completely worth it.
