“I didn’t mean to, Rachel,” Borne said, pleading. “I didn’t mean to hurt him. I wasn’t going to hurt him. You startled me, Rachel. You made me.”

  1. I prefer the left cover. Sounds like a groovy read! Happy weekend! x
    As for the IG post. You can embed by going to your profile on a pc. Click on the pic you want to share. You will see 3 dots at bottom, click on it and hit embed for code. Easy peasy!

  2. This book sounds like nothing I have ever seen before and it sounds really intriguing. I actually like both of the covers, but if I had to choose, I would pick the one on the right. I hope that you enjoy this one. 🙂
