Danielle takes solace in a father figure, her dad’s best friend, who happens to be Tristan’s uncle.
Knowing they have been through a similar trauma, Danielle seeks to reach out to Tristan, but he is only interested in shutting out life. When Tristan finally opens up, they quickly form a budding romance through helping each other grieve. Little do they know, a family member from Tristan’s past is lurking in the shadows, ready to use Danielle to get his revenge on Tristan.
Prescribed by Morgan Flores kept me entertained and flipping pages. I had the privilege of receiving this debut novel as an arc. I found Flores’ writing style to be engaging. As a reader and an author, I like reading and writing novels that have multiple points of views. Prescribed is told from Tristan’s and Danielle’s POV. The author gives the readers valuable insight into both of the characters lives, and in doing so, you feel invested in their lives.
Her attention to detail and vivid writing allows us to be in the scene with the characters. All around a fabulous debut novel. Please note this is the first in her series. I’m eagerly awaiting the next book. Recommended.
