Book Review: The Other Sister

The Other Sister (Sister #1) by Leanne Davis: 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 is 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.

Lori's thoughts: I'm always up for a good sibling vs. bad sibling and this one caught my attention a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed the story and for the most part I liked the characters. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 heart read is because, to me, Will seemed too mechanical. The only time I was able to tell he had any emotions at all was when the author told us. I liked him, I just couldn't warm up to him like I wish I could have. 

That being said, this is a wonderful story about healing and growing, and turning out okay in life, despite the odds that have been stacked against you the whole way. Yes, Jessie was the "bad" daughter, but I liked her so much more than I did her older "good" sister. 

I'm looking forward to continuing the series.
