Metamorphosis by Stephie Walls


Cameron Pierce is an overachiever—CEO of Regional Bank, force to be reckoned with in the Boardroom, and beautiful to boot. At 24, an earth-shattering event set her life goals. But is she fulfilled? Idolized by those around her she’s—kind, forceful, intelligent, driven, and successful. Cam is surrounded by close friends and consumed by her career. 
At first glance, Dax Cooper appears to be a playboy—carefree, cocky, arrogant, and devoid of intelligent thought but sexy with a face and a body that drive women crazy. Cameron believes in this façade when he continually manages to walk right past her gatekeeper with constant interruptions. He is everything she doesn’t like in a male. Unlike Cam, Dax has walked away from a talent and a life that had been his passion in exchange for family and friends. Unmotivated by money and a career, he too is embarking on change. 
Tragedy strikes Cameron for the second time in her life. Attacked by a stranger, in an instant, her life, her psyche, and the essence of her being appear to be permanently scarred at best. If she survives the physical injuries, will she survive the mental trauma? 
Metamorphosis is the story of a woman’s struggle to regain her confidence and repair her shattered life following a random, brutal attack. With the help of the man she had pushed away, she chooses the path that she will follow for the rest of her life. She undergoes a metamorphosis—not by choice but by the will to survive.

3.5 stars ***~

This is a tough review to write purely because I didn’t hate it and I didn’t love it so I’ve chosen a result in between. 

I have to start by saying that I didn’t love Cameron’s character and, while I know she has suffered through a lot her character confused me. For starters at the beginning of the story, she was this big shot CEO, later she was this wholly dependent of her boyfriend girl. I realise that the change is due to what happened to her but it was such a drastic change that it didn’t sit well with me.

I loved Dax’s character though. He was totally alpha and right up my street although, I don’t think I would have submitted like Cameron did. 

I enjoyed the storyline and the issues it raised and touched upon and it was done in a tasteful way. I just didn’t like how quick things changed. I get different things and issues are not the same for everyone and each person deals with these things in his or her own way it just seemed rushed. It might just be me. The story is well written and deals with very real issues and ways in which people cope with them.

I loved the secondary characters and obviously they will get their own stories. I will read more by this author because I did enjoy this story. 

Happy Reading 🙂
