Publisher's Summary

General Travis Bains has two daughters - one who is good and one who is bad. Everyone knows Lindsey is the good one, and Jessie is the bad one. Jessie Bains is the other sister, the bad sister, which she has proven more often than not until the day she gets kidnapped and brutally raped. Will Hendricks, one of her father's soldiers, rescues her and brings her home but fears she may be nearly destroyed by what has been done to her. The most important thing, however, is that no one can know, per the general's orders.

Jessie's life was always far from normal as the daughter of one of the most revered generals in the world. No one sees what the general does to Jessie except Will. When Will discovers the danger Jessie is living in at her father's hand, he once again rescues her. Will has survived the horrors of war but is now engaged in a battle that has become far more personal and far more deadly. Will alone realizes what the general has done and will do to destroy his "other" daughter.

Jessie & Will

This book broke my heart and mended it back together.
I didn't realize how much this book would take from me. I say this because for me it was very emotional.
Jessie who didn't fit in anywhere because her father is a grade A douche. Not only hurt her but would let his friends have their way with her. So he does the unthinkable and the events that follow or so sad and horrific you can't even imagine.
So to rectify his mistake he hires Will to bring Jessie home. Only she really not there, she is but she isn't her mind is really messed up and who's wouldn't be really.
Will's kind of becomes her white knight in dark clothing kind of thing. He falls for her and doesn't know how to deal with that. He does bring her sister back into her life and gets Jessie the help she needs.

I don't want to give too much away because everyone should read this book it's amazingly well written and brings out all the feels.

Just that not everything is black and white sometimes we need to see the grey to really understand.

Honest review ** no spoilers**

Any additional comments?


Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this book is really well deliver with the sensitive subjects presented. People complained about this book being to graphic. This book is graphic full of mature, adult content and sensitive topics.

Sex, Rape, Murder, Deception, and that is just the beginning. Yes, some of it is hard to read. However, this is a story and unfortunately it happens in the world.

There are many times you will laugh, cry, fill with rage and perhaps all the emotions at once. It is a very emotional book.


What other book might you compare The Other Sister to and why?

Unlike any other book I have read. This book is very bold.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator did a great job. She wouldn't of been my first pick. There are some people betrayed in this book but their personalities doesn't match the voice they were given.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole book had some sort of extreme emotion happening at all times. The last three hours had SO much happen. The ending was pretty much all over the place but life is so unpredictable and things change without notice. I think that was the intention the author was trying to make with the ending.


Any additional comments?

The book is easy to invest yourself into the lives of these characters. I have to know now and continue this life journey will all of them. I need to know how the ending of this book will change the way things turn out.

Great read. I am surprised that there hasn't been any reviews on Audible yet. It is a great read. IF you can move past the sensitive topics and just really invest your self into the life of someone else.

This was a struggle to finish.

Wow this book was a real struggle to get through. I was so glad when it ended...... Sigh.....

The story line and plot was good, but seriously the constant inner thoughts was way to much and annoying, UGH So much filler nonsense and drawn out, Kind of ruined it for me,

I know I am in the minority here and sorry for that but really!

I can't even consider listening to the second book, Sorry.

As for the narration, that was the pretty much the best part of the book. I am a huge Brittany Pressley fan so there is that.

sounded like the movie

parts of it sounded like the Generals Daughter movie w/ John Travolta... to Pat. The voice sounded too broken sentences. Very predictable. I only finished it because I paid for it.

THE OTHER SISTER

Great, great, great. Can you tell I liked this novel. There is a little of everything included in this story. It kept me wanting to find out what happen next. Feelings of happiness, sadness and becoming mad all encompassing. On my way to get the next novel.

Heart wrenching

The story was definitely 5 heart wrenching stars. The drop came from the fact that there was a need for an editor. Run on sentences, lack of punctuation, and poor structure caused me to reread to discern what the author was trying to express. Specifically abrupt changes in perspective. For many parts of the book large portions were of either Will or Jessie's. Then there were times where mid-paragraph the POV changes and I would have to reorient myself to whose thoughts were being written. It happened too many times and threw off the flow of the book. Audio smoothed some of this over, but not completely.

Emotionally, this is NOT an easy book to read/listen to. It's absolutely a romance in that there is a couple and they get an HFN (there's a follow-up novella), but it is a long, winding, vicious, and painful road for both of them. I also usually stick my content warnings at the bottom, but this entire book centers around the sexual and physical abuse that Jessie experiences and her self harm - on page - and her long road to healing. As well as Will trying to unravel all of the Bains family secrets and help Jessie. Take care fellow reader/listener.

There is a lot of angst, but it isn't unnecessary or without supporting details. Davis dives deep into the horror that Jessie endures and her realistic reactions and coping as a victim and then a survivor. Will is a hero in and outside of the military. But he's never faced or even conceived of what Jessie has been through and having to watch it in vivid detail requires him to completely change as well.

There were a lot of ugly tears for me reading and then listening to this. However, I loved Will and Jessie and that they finally get to a place of healing and true love for themselves and each other. I'm looking forward to their HEA in The Years Between.

Brittany Pressley was fantastic. I enjoyed her voices for Jessie, Will, and the rest of the cast. She did a wonderful job with such an emotional story.

Great read! Hard topics

I really liked this story. It's definitely not for the feint of heart. The topic is hard but there is a happy ending and it is believable. It takes a lot of time for healing. I really loved the characters and I felt for them and with them. They were engaging and had me from the beginning. I couldn't put the book down. I had to figure out what was going to happen.

Not for Faint of heart

Nathaniel Kent was born with a deformed arm, his father tries to smother him as his mother lays dying. He is rescued by his housekeeper until 9 when his fathers team kill her. He knows who his is. The storyline is well written but with intensity and too much frank sex. The characters are believable and interesting. He is now grown and as a pirate only steals from his father's ships. This story has many twists. I don't want to ruin it, but it does have a romantic twist. It is written well but the pre and the sex scenes are Highly DISTASTEFUL. They could have been toned down immensely. There are many unbelievable moments. I feel the secondary characters were left hanging and could have made the story better. I was disappointed in this book. I would not recommend

Wow

This book pulled at all my heart strings and emotional ones. What no-one else could see he could and proceeded to help her. This was an amazing read.
Narration was awesome. Though would have been good for the male led to be in a male voice. But that is a personal preference and took nothing away from the narration.
