Book Tour Stop: The Voice by Jennifer Anne Davis- Review & Giveaway
Author: Jennifer Anne Davis
Publisher: Lands Atlantic
Release Date: January 29, 2013
During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she’s not going crazy, because after what she’s experienced, that’s the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her.
Unfortunately, rescue isn’t all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate’s house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works—until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she’s worked so hard to build.
Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn’t know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it’s the same voice that she turns to—a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes.
Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage.

I did not know that this is what happened in this book originally... And so the surprise of it kind of depressed me. But actually, I did like this story, if you don't count the whole depressed-by-subject-matter.
I liked all of the characters in this, especially Caleb and Justin, but then again I felt like they were like the stereotypical twins who are exact opposites of each other. I usually have a on-again, off-again relationship with stereotypical things and this happened to be an off time. So: not so great with the stereotyped twins.
I do like how the writing was realistic. Although the subject matter/book itself may have not been my cup o' tea, I did realize how great the writing is and Ms. Davis is at writing.
Therefore, if you like to read about the heroine/main character surviving through something that you and nobody would expect to happen to them, then this is the book for you. Just be prepped for the darkness of the book/subject itself, because it may get to you....
I have to give this book a 3.5 because although I didn't like the subject, I did like the writing and writing style.
