AWRW Book Review: Precise (Pulling Me Under 0.5) A Novella by Rebecca Berto

“Still speaking over me,’ she says, meeting my eyes and scoffing. ‘You are still that worthless little girl.” –Precise



Precise, (Pulling Me Under 0.5) A Novella

Katie is a wife, a caring best friend, and the one person her mother, Rochelle, hates more than anyone. No one sees the darkness lurking just under the surface of their mother-daughter relationship, instead viewing Rochelle as misunderstood. That she has so much love for her daughter that she may seem harsh.

Wrong. So wrong.

Katie grew up taught that she was the cause of Rochelle’s miscarriages. She grew up with the belief she shouldn’t be happy knowing she’d caused her mom so much pain and suffering. Now Katie is pregnant and Rochelle is out to stop Katie from ruining her baby’s life—just like Katie ruined her own.

Still, Katie can’t imagine killing the life growing inside her. Hell hath no fury like Rochelle with a vengeance to make Katie pay for ruining her life.

In Rochelle’s quest for power, Katie’s baby is the pawn.

“The moment weighs down on me, threatening to unstitch my seams and expose me to the world.”

Holy smokes… Precise is a novella that floored me. It is the prequel novel to Pulling Me Under, by Rebecca Berto.

Warning, Contains Spoilers.

Katie is having a baby with the love of her life, and she should be happy, except her family is anything but supportive. -Specifically her Mother, a woman who I’m guessing suffers from histrionic personality disorder, as well as a slew of other mental health conditions…

Rochelle doesn’t want her daughter to have a baby, because she feels Katie doesn’t deserve happiness. In her twisted mind, Katie’s birth prevented Rochelle’s subsequent pregnancies from coming to full term. She is very bitter and accuses her daughter of murdering her siblings who never came to term.

Despite her mother’s seething anger, and violence toward her, Katie continues to be a good daughter, but with her own daughter’s safety at stake, she turns the table on her Mother, packs up, and runs…

Precise, by Rebecca Berto is a dark read that is balanced with some lighter aspects of romance, and the birth of a baby. I absolutely want to read the next installment of this series! I would recommend this novella to anyone who likes dark, dramatic fiction.
