So reading through the book it was very apparent that Branch was the father of Cassie's baby even though I wont lie I was expecting some kind of twist later in the novel that didn't come.

But what I wasn't fully expecting was Branch and Cassie's history. I assumed that they met working in the industry and just knew each other while Shelia was just a very angry girl calling Branch a rapist, with this fact I also assumed there was a bit more but not as much as there was).

The fact that Branch drugged Cassie up and had sex with her, litterally killing her then bringing her back to life, obiviously when they were a bit younger, just surprised me a bit. Not like OH MY GOD surprised just unexpected.

So was anyone else expecting that kind of history between those two?
