A Romantic Suspense Series starting with a dark and beautiful Coming Of Age Story--a tale of abuse, forgiveness, surviving, and love. No cliffhangers.

One woman is trapped, alone, in a box. Battling to survive the terrifying darkness, with nothing to do but wait in terror for her captor to return, she grapples through dreams and memories of a painful past. Slowly, the story of the dragonfly tattoo takes shape. Meant as a family mark of freedom, it has become a prophetic brand of survival for the four women who wear it.

Raised in a broken home, identical twins Gabby and Olivia and their little sister Emma flee when scarcely more than children themselves, desperate to escape their mother's fate. But the past won't be denied, and old patterns prove nearly impossible to break.

The book was tiresome to read due to all the errors in spelling, punctuation, inappropriate words and awkward sentences. It had a good storyline and would have been an enjoyable read had it not been for the errors.

A first novel about abuse ... surprisingly good writing and a clever interweaving of the stories.

HASH(0x9f30f1b0) out of 5 stars A very unique and dark novel that took me by surprise in the end! Jan. 19 2014
By Fidah - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Let Me Go is the first book in the Let Me Go series which is also the debut novel for L.L. Akers. This book is told from the perspective of a mother and her three daughters, mainly Gabby.

The book starts off when the daughters were still young. Their parents are constantly arguing which can escalate quickly, resulting in physical abuse. Each time it happens, their parents pack and move to a different place claiming to start a brand new "happier" life.

The beginning of the book was really intriguing. I was getting sucked into their life and I felt really sad for each of them. However, the middle of the book was a little hard for me to get through. The story was moving a little too slow for me and it was a little predictable. Add the fact that some of the things they did were pretty dumb. I was sort of iffy about the book. But once it got towards the end, the author totally took me by surprise. I was genuinely shocked. I did not see that coming and I was mind blown. Furthermore, there were a few chapters titled 'The Girl in the Box' spread out throughout the story. Those chapters added something unique and suspense yet disturbing to the book which I thoroughly enjoyed.

As for the characters, there was so much character development. From the beginning of the story and to the end, the girls/women have gone through so much. They are really strong inside and it was nice to read about their struggles and trying to overcome them. Nonetheless, I have something I need to talk about.

Throughout the story, there were some things that I was unhappy about. With the decisions that the characters should have made. With the characters choosing to hide their troubles. However, I forgot that characters weren't meant to be perfect and that is what makes a character so real. We, humans, aren't perfect and we do make mistakes and sometimes we can forget that characters aren't perfect too. They will make mistakes. They will choose to do stupid things. And we have to forgive them for that. These girls/women will make mistakes and honestly, I was mentally hitting my head against the wall. The urge to pull my hair was very tempting. But I forgot that they were victims and had to struggle with abuse which might cloud what is obviously the right thing to do. Now that I've had some time to escape and calm myself, I've learnt to accept their choices and for those who may struggle with it too, I hope you'll keep what I've said in mind.

With that said, this book wasn't perfect by any means. There were certain parts in the book that I wished the author would have delved into deeper. There were instances where I totally disagreed and clashed with the characters. But the ending of the book was absolutely perfect to me. Because of that, everything that the characters went through is worth it to get to where they are at they end. I wouldn't have asked for a better ending.

All in all, Let Me Go is a very dark novel that deals with a mother and her children struggles with abuse. Abuse is very real in the fictional world and reality. This book isn't light and the author did a great job in telling exactly how serious and hard it can be. I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to reading more books by L.L. Akers.

Do pick this one up. However, I advice the readers to be at least 17 years old as the story has profanity and sexually graphic abusive scenes.

By WOW - Published on
I don't normally like reading books about abuse (as I'm a survivor) Friend told me about it, so I decided to read it with a heavy heart but WOW. I couldn't put it down. It took me to dark places in my past and I cried so many time.I faced many demons and I would like to say thank you L.L. Akers. Can't wait to read your next book.

HASH(0x9f30f5b8) out of 5 stars The Cycle Needs Broken Dec 1 2013
By Heather A - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this image over on L.L. Akers Facebook page, it says You have the power to say, “This is NOT how my story will end.”

I love it.

I don’t think that there is anything more fitting than that saying in regard to this book.

This is an absolutely beautiful and horrible book at the same time. Horrible in that abuse exists period. Horrible in that people would ever treat children that way. Horrible in that women let men do these things to them and then believe the lies when they say it will never happen again. Horrible that men (in this individual case, I know that there are women who also abuse men) use their strength and their power to gain control over us. I’ve been there. As a child and then as a woman. I broke the cycle for myself. I wish so many other women would do that for their children, for themselves.

On this flip side, this was breathtakingly beautiful. I don’t want to go to deep into it because I don’t want to give spoilers, but it was. As hard of a subject as this is to write about, L.L. Akers did an amazing job.

These stories need to be told in fiction and non-fiction formats. The shame, the guilt, the blame, all of that that we put on ourselves because obviously we did something to deserve this treatment needs to be broken. Children need to be stood up for and protected and any mother who buries her head in the sand as if it wasn’t happening is just as culpable as the one perpetuating the abuse in my opinion.

Amazing book. I kept turning the pages, who was the girl in the box. Which of these women? Who put them in the box? Do they make it out of the box in time? I finished this in just a couple of hours (272 pages), I couldn’t put it down. I had to find out. I wanted to see if any of them finally stood up and said I don’t deserve this, I am more valuable then this, THIS IS NOT MY FAULT!

Amazing author. I cannot wait for the next book in the Letting Go series. Do not miss this one. We all need to be aware that this goes on, that it doesn’t just happen those of a certain ethnicity, or of a certain wealth (or lack of wealth) level, or to those who live here or there, it could be happening to your neighbor, to someone you love, and it needs to stop.

HASH(0x9f30f9fc) out of 5 stars a dark tale with a hopeful ending Aug. 6 2013
By R. Horrigan - Published on
This is my first conquest in the new "New Adult Genre," which, according to USA Today, is a product of the self-publishing/e-book era, and is supposed to fill a void between Young Adult (ages 12-18) and traditional fiction. I was unaware that there was any sort of gap, but this stuff is selling like hotcakes, so what do I know? Based on all the titles, reviews, and publicity I have found since discovering this new genre, I had set the bar pretty low for "Let Me Go." Although there are many gems in Young Adult (Anne of Avonlea) there are also many pieces of pyrite (Bella Swan). I was expecting "Let Me Go" to be pyrite through and through, but there is some true sparkle to be found in LL Akers' first novel.

While reading "Let Me Go," I kept clicking "next page, next page, next page" on my Kindle. It is a page turner, and I absolutely wanted to get to the end of the story, find out which lady was "the girl in the box," who was her captor, and find what was promised to me as the hopeful ending. The end was not what I expected at all, and I love to be surprised. Akers' novel proves that she is a storyteller, and I doubt anyone would walk away from her around a campfire while she is spinning a tale. I also happened to love the dragonfly symbolism and metaphor and how it helped to tie things up neatly in the healing process for the main characters.

Although the twin sister relationship started out as a brightly painted picture, I found the characters flat and undeveloped. Gabby and Olivia's "twinness" proves to be a much less important plot point than I thought when I began my journey with them. The plot moves forward and sort of drags the characters with it. Having chosen the important and relevant topic of domestic violence (in many disgusting forms) as the central conflict of her story, Akers' has an opportunity to educate others about the vicious cycle of abuse. Yet this novel propitiates stereotypes of the victims of abuse and domestic violence by not fleshing out the emotional lives of these sad women. She doesn't help the reader understand why they don't and can't just walk out. As a person with no experience of abuse of any kind, I just found this entire story totally unbelievable, even fantastic, when it has no basis in fantasy. Perhaps I am just naive. Emma's story bordered on ridiculous. There are more than a few errors (word usage, punctuation) in this novel, so if you are a grammar snob like me, be prepared to cringe.

"Let Me Go" is not an easy read. Expect vivid detail of physical and emotional abuse, rape, and domestic violence. It may have a hopeful ending, but this is a dark, dark tale, not for the squeamish. Although they are mentioned, if you're "looking for unicorns jumping over rainbows pooping Skittles," this book is not for you.

It usually takes me a long time to read a book, but this one was hard to put down. The story deals with some of life's most unthinkable subjects. While it is listed as a work of fiction, I get the eerie feeling that it must at least be based on a true story. If I am right, it is very sad that this might actually happen in real life. This story looks at two generations of the main family and it is a stark reminder that we all inherit a lot more than DNA from our parents. "received an ARC copy for a fair and honest review,"
