When physical pain allows you to escape your reality; what do you do when the pain is no longer strong enough to quiet the emotional ache?
Diouana "Nikki" returned to her hometown six months ago to tend to her sick mother. She thought she'd left her "baggage" behind her on the opposite coast, only to find that it never left her side. As her self-destructive thoughts begin to consume her, her mother -- realizing Nikki's torment -- pushes Nikki to complete her last wishes.

Eric Brenton, Nikki's new neighbor, lives in a dark, chaotic world that is easily hidden behind his model good looks and cocky demeanor. Unapologetic about his dirtier intentions, he sets his sights on Nikki with an offer to help her. But his help comes with very unorthodox conditions and a huge price.

And Eric...comes with an extensive black box warning label.



Okay I'm going to make this quick and to the point. This was a total mind fuck book. If you love those stories that make you think what the fuck are these crazy people doing and at the same time all you can say is OMG I have to keep reading this, this is the book for you. I never thought that I would like this type of story but I must admit that I do. I loved the fact that things just kept happening and no matter how hard Nikki tried to fight Eric it never worked. Than I get to the end of the book and I see who was behind the whole thing and the things that Eric and Nikki went through all I could say was Shit.


Author Bio:
Ive been creating my own little world since I was very young. When I was eight years old, I began to bring those worlds to life with pen and paper.

While I write across genres (I find it hard to stick to one genre), I do have an archetype when it comes to the female protagonist they have to have certain type of strength, strong convictions, and layered personalities. There will often be a lot of darkness and depth to my stories, but I dont see the point in writing vapid characters who are thrust into safe situations.

Writing Science Fiction/Fantasy is my first love. If there is one thing for sure, I'm a bit of a misfit when it comes to Romance. I prefer my romances dark. The elements that will be common in my stories are: depth, controversy, and misfit characters.
