Review ~ Escaping Parker by F.T. Zele ~ JMAC


Clarissa never thought at age twenty-six she would be fearing for her life. Everything was going as planned, until her husband started showing a side of himself she didn’t know existed. Failed attempts at leaving him have now left her fighting for her life. Literally. She knows she has to figure out a plan to free herself from his tight grip, but it’s harder than she imagined.

Rig endured much pain after a tragedy left him trying to figure out his place in the world. He now plows through situations, leaving nothing safe in his wake. He lives for the thrill of danger and loves to be on the open road. He doesn’t mix business with pleasure, and he didn’t expect to fall in love with the girl he is hiding out.

When things get too intense between Clarissa and Rig, he decides he can no longer be her safety net. With his feelings clouding his judgment, it’s hard for him to choose between right and wrong.

Will Rig be able to figure out what he wants in time to save Clarissa’s life, or will she become another statistic of domestic abuse?


Escaping Parker was just a great book.  The subject matter was a bit hard to read at times because it is just a real topic.  

Clarissa is in an abusive marriage.  At many failed attempts at leaving her husband, she has no hope in ever getting away.  Until one day her dreams are answered.
Clarissa now lives her life on the run.  She has Rig whose job is to protect her, make sure nothing happens to Clarissa.  

When you are with someone for so long, day in and day out, feelings are bound to get in the way.  

Rig had his own inner demons.  He never wanted to get involved with Clarissa, just wanted to do his job, and get to his next job.  That's how he lives his life.  Helping families get away from the abuse they are living in.  

It's until Clarissa that he feels he might want more again.  

Escaping Parker was so real to me.  I was caught up in all the emotions this book came with.  Just when things are going great, they go from great to bad to worse.  Everything just happens all at once.  The whole time things are going down, my heart was pounding out of my chest.  I had such anxiety.  I wanted to help Clarissa get out of the mess that was her life. 

I can't say much in this review without ruining the story, but I will say Escaping Parker is a must read.  The emotional roller coaster that is Clarissa and Rig, is one I wont soon forget!
