Feeling lost and alone her entire life with no one to love or support her, there was never a reason to exist. That was until the stranger who saves her, becomes the one person to show her what life is really about.

Everything happens for a reason, and sometimes that reason doesn't always make sense, especially when life hasn't always been so kind. Will Riley be able to over come her fears and finally find a reason to live her life, or will she see just how cruel life really can be after believing and taking a chance?

This book had such potential to be a great book, but fell through. There were too many things going on and the story got lost in the midst of it all. Blake and Grace were honestly wastes of paper, and Tristen should be put in a physic ward.
What happens when a person has no faith in anyone or yourself? What choices do they have? How can they change that thought process? These are all questions that I asked while reading Amanda Bennett's Faithless. Riley is alone. She has felt that way the majority of her life. She decide to do the ultimate, but isn't successful. Instead, she decides to do what is needed to get out of the place she is in. What she doesn't expect is to meet Tristan. Tristan has eyes that are crystal blue and Riley begins to feel a connection that she never felt possible. She wants it to stop. She doesn't want to feel., but she does. Tristan had me at hello. He is able create a spark in Riley that has never happened. He rocks Riley to her core. This book is full of real life situations, trust, hope, fears, dreams, and reality. It is one that will touch the heart of many especially if they have every had someone they love be a victim of domestic violence and suicide. Faithless made me feel every emotion that Riley and Tristan felt. I wanted to hold each one of them and make everything right. There are some surprises within the story with characters, and how they are involved. This is a must read. In fact, I read it in one sitting. 1-click your copy of Faithless like yesterday!
The story started out great, but that quickly ended. The author had a good start, but ruined the story with overly complicated and dramatic plot lines. Seriously, the pair didn't need to end every day with a huge fight and not every character needed some dark, hidden past. By attempting to do more with the plot than the author's skill level allowed, she killed her story and turned it into a, quite frankly, stupid mess.
