Review: The Grace in Darkness (Darkness Trinity, #2) By Melissa Andrea

Every part of me yearns for Ryland and there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by that I don’t question if I made the right decision. Adjusting is something I should be used to by now but how can I do that when life has other plans?
When darkness consumes you, only true light can free you
Remembering how I existed before Araya came into my life and turned everything upside down has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can’t stand to be round anyone and the feeling is mutual. But I’m ready to take back what’s mine. I’m ready to be whole again. But every decision has a choice and every choice has a consequence.
To find the grace in darkness, you must Dare to be BRAVE Dare to be STRONG Dare to be ALIVE


Book 1- The edge of darkness- My Review
Book 2- The grace of Darkness (Below)


My Review


Okay first of all have you read The edge of darkness(book 1)?
No? NO? You kidding me right? Get on it right now! And don't read this review if you haven't read the first book :P

So as you all know I loved book 1 it was different, surprising, moving and kept me hooked until the last page and even after! So I was really intrigued to see how the story would continue, it was left at the part where Araya has gone away from Ryland to learn to do things for herself. Ryland doesn't know where she is at and has to go work for J.D. until he can figure out where she is and they can be together again.

"Don't you get it Araya? You are my life now. I meant it when I said that you saved me. " 
"We saved each other, Ryland. We saved each other. "

I hated the separation I was just dying for them to find each other again.In book 1 their love is sweet, cute and down right adorable but in this book we see passion, lust, love and much more.
The way they meet well..I really wasn't expecting that, their chemistry and love for each other was explosive.Even after the separation their love never wavered, it changed them both in different ways.

The Ryland you see in book 1 is a sweet and I don't know happy and nice and lovely and in this book he turns into a broody, (still hot)rude guy who just doesn't give a shit about anything or anyone. He is bitter, hurt and angry at Araya for leaving, at J.D (The pig), at Careless and even at Sebastian. He does some funny silly thing when he bashes that dumb guys face in hah! Its like all his happiness and light has been sucked out of him since Araya left and he doesn't know what to do with himself and he hates it.

"It was a few months after you started. He was in the hall, looking for you. I found him. Mind you, I didn't know who he was at the time, but I brought him to you. You were dancing and he looked...he looked like a guy still in love with you."

The distance made Araya realises a lot of things, she can't live without Ryland, it's like there is a part of her missing and nobody can fill that place.She grows and learns to becomes independent and accepts that she can't do everything and pushing people away to become independent doesn't get us very far.She grew as a person became more confident and started facing problems head on.

Now lets get to one character that pissed me off to no there are a million different types of names I could all this waste of space piece of shit but he just isn't worth it! The amount of times I wanted to read into my phone and snap his neck, bring him back to life and then re-snap is a couple thousand times yeahh.. I hate him.
Why? What the hell is his problem? Why are you so damn annoying?Why can't you fall in to a deep hole and die? Urgh he was just damn cruel!

Oh and Sebastian did anyone else feel really sorry for him? Was it just my heart that hurt for him?He was always the one that got the shit end of the stick when everyone was having a happy time. He was pushed aside, bashed and ignored numerously and I just wanted to give him a big hug! I really want him to have his own book I want him to have a happily ever after, I was a little annoyed that he wasn't mentioned at the end!

"I want to come back in pieces." I frowned. 
"In pieces?" 
"Yep. A piece of me would come back as the wind so I can be the one to lift and caress your wings when you fly. Another piece would come back as the sun so I can be the light that guides you and the warmth that warms your dainty feathers. I'd come back as the piece of the sky so you always had a place to fly free. And a piece of me would come back as a tree so you always had a place to call home, Hummingbird." -Ryland

Aww I loved Ryland and Araya scenes they are just so damn cute together.I liked how this book carried on with the dual POV so we got an insight into both their lives when they were apart and their thoughts and feelings.We even got a bit of Sebastian's POV which left me hopeful about him getting his own book ;)
I am happy with the happily ever after! It doesn't mean that everything ended perfectly naahh nothing is ever going to be perfect there will always be both light and darkness you can't have one without the other.
This book shows how to see the positive, the light in every dark situation and never let the bad situations get you down.

His fingers wrapped around the back of my neck, pulling me hard against his
body. I knew what he was attempting to do, but his plan was backfiring.
My body sighed at the contact, and every curve molded against him;
desperate to feel all of him.
“If I feel you beneath me, I won’t
be able to stop Araya. I want you too damn much! I want you, all of you.
I want to be buried so deep inside of you, you won’t know where I end
and you begin.” His breath showered my lips with warmth.
“I won’t want you to stop Ryland. I need you, all of you, now and forever.”
“And the rest?”
eyes move over my face, flushing my skin with the intensity of his
gaze. The rhythm of my heart increased, because I know what he wants me
to say.
“Say it.” He growls against my lips.

My Review

4.5-5 Action-packed, Twisted, Unexpected Stars!!

Margaret never stops surprising me! The story has so many twists and unexpected moments it keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through and when you see that you are nearly finished you think oh I can finally breath and then POOF! ending knocks the wind right out of you!

"You called me Honey.Thank you Anna"
"Is that okay?" He told me he wanted me to call him by an affectionate name and that's what I picked.I don't think he would've liked me calling him 'dead motherfucker'.

Book 2 of the HiT series and it carries on from where book 1 left off.Anna is back with a bang! New enemies to take down more secrets to uncover and obviously more bad people to kill.Falling in love with someone she was supposed to kill wasn't supposed to happen but it did and now she will do anything to make sure Ben Pearson is safe from danger.So what happens when someone extremely dangerous comes to St Cloud? Someone even Anna will struggle against.Power, greed, money and sins..he has lots of it and he loves his power and control.What happens when these two dangerous people go head to head?

Anna has disappeared and hasn't met Ben since she left..or so Ben thinks.What he doesn't know is that she has been at St Cloud all this time, hiding in plain sight.In this book you saw a softer side to Anna as well as her normal bad-ass cold demeanor.Okay in this book Ben pissed me off at times he was being such a little scared girl urgh loved him in book 1 but in this one i wanted to smack him around the head and tell him to grow a backbone! Anna irritated me at times when she treated him like her bitch but then again Ben was acting like one soo he kind of brought it on himself.

I was just sitting screaming for him to BE A MAN!! I really hope in the next book we get to see Ben take on a more alpha/dominant role and take care of Anna instead of it always being the other way around.Also I want to see more of Anna in a vulnerable role which I think we definitely will be seeing since the book finished in such a way.

I'll need to find my targets and execute this with precision.There isn't any room for error.This hit is personal.This is a Hit for Freedom.

Okay let me get onto to something that there was a lot of...SECRETS! Damn secrets!!It was like everyone had a secret and each secret linked to the others which made each secret dangerous.Anna and Ben both have secrets and omg I just was like please, please tell each other, I swear it you don't you will regret it!! Things will go bad and it will be because of these secrets and what dya know? I was right!

I think their relationship needs a lot of work they both kept secrets, they both have trust issues and need to work and improve on their relationship or else everything will be going downhill fast!I felt like Anna was babying Ben trying to take care of him and thinking of him as a kid who can't take care of himself, instead she should have looked at him as an equal and told him what was going on so he can take care of himself.

Okay Ben's secret I so knew it! But still he was so out of character I really wanted him to take on his role and quit hiding behind this mask.Each characters hides behind a mask of power, money, greed, control and more.I can't wait to find out more about the new characters introduced and how the story will continue.

On a side note, I so want to know more about Agent, is it just me who finds him so damn cool? Yeah yeah I love a smart guy but C'mon how can you not? he is so good! haha

About the Author
I love to read. I'm a huge fan of books and when I start reading anything, I usually forgo doing everything else, I mean the housework will still be there in the morning (right?). When I love a story or book that I've downloaded, I usually refrain from sleep and am crabby the next day - but only until I pick my iPad up and start reading again!
I was recently described by a reviewer as my writing style is Chick-Lit with an Edge. I liked that so much that that's the way I describe the genre I write.
My goal when writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second.
I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept.
I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. Every Friday I spend it with my girlfriends where we have 'cake day', which usually consists of a yummy yet nutritious lunch, quickly destroyed by a delicious and devilishly good cake and a caramel latte.
I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life is hard enough as it is!
Three things you need to know about me; 1 - I'm fiercely loyal and will bend over backwards to help. 2 - I love chocolate, like A LOT and 3 - I have a huge crush on David Gandy at the moment! (I mean, who hasn't, have you seen the man????)

Blog Tour/Deleted scenes: The Devil's Revenge (The Devil's Eyes #2) By Jennifer Loren

Book 3: The Devil's Son


The argument for my bail begins, and I lower my head until the doors behind me crash open with a thunderous roar. A vibration rushes through my body, I look up at the judge as his eyes widen and a cold silence takes hold of the room. It’s him. I know it’s him. It can be no other. Before I can turn I whisper his name and feel the energy of him blaze up my body as if the simple whisper of his name makes it true, makes him true. As hard as I fight my own curiosity I can’t stop myself, with all the assuredness in my head I still have to prove it to my own eyes. Turning, I slowly raise my head up and look upon the three gentlemen, dressed in dark suits and letting the hoods of their coats fall back and reveal expressions of pure - desired annihilation. But it is he that stands center and strong that confirms my suspicions. It is he that has caused this silence and chocked the breath out of an entire room. It’s as if the air could breathe and it breathes a trembling gasp of his name, with all that laid their eyes on this sight I see. Only I breathe his name and meet his eyes whispering … “I knew you would come for me.” 

Only God could save me from a certain deadly fate, and so rightfully, he sent the devil to rescue me. 

The sequel to The Devil's Eyes is action packed while still maintaining the same dark romance and suspenseful tone of the first novel.


Deleted Scenes
Being dead isn’t that much fun:
(Nick is hiding out and still pretending to be dead. No one knows he is still alive, except Ryan at this point. Although, Kayla is making it increasingly difficult for Nick to continue to stay in the shadows.)

Being dead is not all that much fun, especially when my sister insists on torturing me with her nightly Simone love. The only escape from the torture I have, is at the docks as Mike Wiljer the new dock worker for Henry Estrella, on of Estrella’s few working children. I have made up a perfect disguise for myself, which is about to be put to the test and surely fail if I am not careful. As I work I see Kayla’s car pull up to the docks. I instantly search for a quick escape, but the moment she steps out of the car a smile forms on my face and I can’t walk away.
Kayla struts past me in her form fitted dress and assassin heels, looking ready to kill anyone that dares deny her. “Can I help you?” Gregg Lohman, my shift supervisor asks her.
“I am here to see Henry Estrella, please go get him for me. I don’t have a lot of time.”
“He’s busy right now and he doesn’t like unexpected visitors. It would be in your best interest …”
Kayla interrupts him with a poisonous tone, “Did I ask what he was doing or what he likes? No I didn’t and I am not about to sit here and wait for him, so you go get him now, before, he regrets that I left unhappy.” She expresses with an exasperated sigh; waiting for the prick to go do as asked. She doesn’t have to make another move before the man rushes in and finds Estrella.
Henry walks out with an exaggerated confidence, his chest out and large gut pushed above his tightly fixed belt. “Ms. Jayzon how great of you to visit my side of the world. What can I do for you today?” He escorts Kayla to his office and shuts the door. I work my way towards the thin office walls and try to listen in, but am not able to make out much before I am caught by Lohman.
‘Wiljer, what are you doing over here? You better not be doing any drugs while you’re working.”
“No sir, I dropped something and it rolled back here. I was only trying to find it.”
“Well worry about finding it later when you’re not on the clock! Now get back to work.” He claps his hands at me as if he is cheering me on to my shitty work day.
“Feel free to drive off the dock into a watery grave on your way out Ms. Jayzon.” Estrella says as he follows Kayla out of his office.
Kayla stops directly in front of us and turns back to Estrella, “I would watch say to me, Mr. Estrella. I am not one to take too kindly to threats.”
“You don’t scare me.” He says with a squeaky pitch to his voice and a shaky hand in her face. I laugh before I can catch myself; having to cover my mouth with my hand and lower my head as everyone turns to look at me. “Is there a problem?” Estrella yells at me.
“No sir, please excuse him.” Lohman says stepping out in front of me. “Sorry, he isn’t too smart and gets easily distracted. I found him wandering around like a lost puppy.”
Keep your eyes on the floor Nick, don’t look up at her. She will know it’s you as soon as she looks into your eyes. I can feel her watching me, waiting for me to look up at her. The tension between us clear, I can almost feel the heat of her body against my skin. She takes a breath and I breathe it in savoring her every movement. Licking my lips, I hear a pause within her heart beat. I made a mistake and she knows. Kayla takes a step towards me and I begin coughing to break up the moment and my rising desire to have my wife in my arms again.
“Well stop staring and get back to work.” Estrella yells. I nod and glance at Kayla as she narrows her eyes at me.
“No need to hurry with your dirty business, I will own this soon anyway.” Kayla slides on her gloves, allowing me the opportunity to take her body in fully. She licks her lips with a cock of her hip in my direction. She knows me too well. Damn I miss that woman and her, ‘fuck you attitude’.
Estrella stresses a signal toward Lohman and he nods. “Follow me if you want to keep your job, dumbass.” I follow him as he leads me out to near where Kayla is parked and Ryan is waiting for her. “Oh great she has a guard.”
“What are we doing out here?” I ask him.
“We are going to grab that woman and drown her. You take care of her guard and I will handle her.” He says taking out a weapon. “Do you have a problem with that?” I shake my head with no words to add to his plan. Kayla walks towards her car and Lohman readies himself, “Look at this woman, I would fuck her until she couldn’t walk anymore. Show her what a real man could do to her, you know what I mean?” He laughs.
I nod as he looks me in the eyes. “That’s funny, of course, I am going to have to kill you now.” I grasp his neck and send him to the ground desperately fighting for one more breath. After his struggle is over, I kick his lifeless body into the water, noticing Ryan shake his head behind me. I turn to him with a smile and he rolls his eyes sliding into the car with Kayla, and driving off safely, while I go back to work.
An hour later Estrella comes running at me with a confused expression, “You, have you seen Lohman anywhere?”
“Last time I saw him he said he was having trouble breathing and then … he just disappeared.” I shrug honestly.
“That lazy son of a bitch, I am going to fire his ass.” Estrella mutters as he stomps away.

          He’s back! The original version:
(This is the original idea of how Nick returns. Kayla figures him out and sets him up by letting him find out she is planning on sleeping with another man. Only Nick is the only man that shows.)

I know he knows about my date tonight, so I take the time to prepare myself properly for my unexpected visitor. I put on my new scantily clad underwear and add only a long diamond necklace that hangs perfectly in between my nearly exposed breasts. Our bedroom is lit up with candles and echoes with sensuous music. Everything is perfect when I take my seat and wait for him. Unable to control my smile, I can feel him approaching. He’s clearly hesitant about the situation, so I stay calm, patient, for his return. “Aren’t you tired of standing in the shadows and watching me?” I ask sipping my wine. A low grown surfaces from behind me. “I was about to take care of my needs another way … maybe call for another man.” I say standing up and giving him a full view of my body. His desiring moan rises up against the back of my neck, I reach back and pull him to me. Grasping his shirt the energy flowing inside of me is uncontainable. His lips trail along my neck, as I moan, “I missed you.”
“Where’s your date?” He asks with a growl.
Sliding my hand down to his erection, “He’s right here.”
“You evil woman.”
“Why because I tricked you into coming here?” I ask him.
Taking hold of my waist, he turns me to face him and takes hold of my face; forcing me to look deep into his eyes, “No, because you lied to your husband.” He says taking hold of my lips with his. “I should be angry with you right now, but you in this …” Nick breathes against my exposed body. “You did this on purpose.” I smile sweeping my hand softly against his cheek. “Like I said, evil woman.” I catch the desire in his eyes and rip his shirt from his body and kiss down his chest before removing his pants to my great pleasure. With one strong hand he lifts me up into his arms and with the other he easily removes what little is covering me. I had almost forgotten how good his hot-blooded body feels against mine. His hands hold me securely, his lips comfort my eagerness, while his hips move in between my legs. He leans his body into mine and doesn’t hesitate filling me with his bold excitement. My eyes rush backwards instantly at the overwhelming sensation, but I pull him closer to me making sure he hears my pleasure-filled whimpers. I want so bad to take control, but my emotions become too much and I can do nothing more than let his powerful arms hold me. Even his groans give me pleasure, the encounter is making it impossible for me not to scream out in intense satisfaction, and alert everyone in the house. Sensing my struggle, he cups the back of my head, “Look at me Kayla.” He rises over me as I slowly meet his eyes on me. “I love you - Princess.” He says thrusting us both into the peak of our ecstasy.  
Feeling him again, I can’t bring myself to let go, all I can do is lie my head against his chest and cry. “Why Nick, why?”
“I told you I would protect you forever, Kayla.”
“How did you survive?” I asked watching a slow smile turn at the corner of his lips.
“Someone took my computer and I had to scramble to find a backup, except someone took that too, and caused me to run much later than anticipated for my flight.” He said before a saddened expression comes over him. “I called Tanner to tell them to leave without me, and then pick me up somewhere else. He joked that he was going to pretend to be me, so they would do as he said without question. He put on a coat and hat and boarded the plane saying he was me. When I heard what happened, I hid out at Lena’s until I could figure out what to do next.”
“It was Tanner?” I asked as he nods. “He was your uncle?”
“Yes, it made it easy for Lena to confirm it was me. The test results were close enough for anyone to believe it, at least the ones that wanted to.” He said tapping my chin. “How did you know?”
“How could I not, I knew my heart wouldn’t continue beating … not without you.” Kissing me gently, Nick’s lips are as comforting as I ever remembered. “That was you at the wharf?”
“Yes, it was. It was my fault you were there, I stole Ryan’s phone assuming that you would come alone but … I didn’t realize they were following you so closely. They hadn’t seemed to want to hurt you in anyway. I don’t understand what it was about.”
“They thought I had your books hidden there. They want me and your money.” Nick’s eyes widen. I smile tapping his chin, “Yes my love, in your effort to protect me, you neglected to understand what Estrella’s entire goal was. He wants your life in its entirety. He came looking for me, I had no choice, but to come back and face him head on.”
“Son of a bitch!” Nick stresses sitting up with tense muscles.
“Nick there was no way you could have known.” I said caressing the back of his neck and kissing his shoulder. “Now that your back, we can take care of him together, I already have a plan …” Nick abruptly turns to me.
“Kayla, no! I may not know everything going on, but I know that Estrella has someone protecting him, someone higher up than anyone I have and you cannot battle him right now.”
“But Nick we have already been battling him and winning.”
“We? You and Ryan?” I nod. “You both are being foolish! He is letting you win, giving you a false sense of achievement.”
“Don’t yell at me, we took him by surprise just the other night.”
“We found out Estrella was attending a party with Duncan, his supplier, so we knew if Duncan is here then there must be a supply coming in. So we staked it out, and sure enough found it and took control of it.” I held out my hands waiting for some appreciation, but instead Nick spins out of bed.
“Kayla! You call Ryan right now and release that supply right now.”
Jumping up I try to plead with him, but he finds my phone and shoves it at me, call him now! And don’t tell him anything about me.” Hesitantly I make the call to Ryan and have to forcefully push him to release the supply immediately. After hanging up I look up at Nick pacing the floor. “How did you find out about this party?”
“One of our inside guys, Brandon Knox a senator’s aide.”
“A political party?” I nod. “Estrella is not stupid, he would not put himself and his main associate out there unless he knew he was untouchable. Whose party was this?”
“Spencer Welch, the old DA who became senator last year.” Nick looks at me from the corners of his eyes. “What?”
“Welch is trying to bid for the Vice –Presidency, why would he risk being associated with a known drug dealer?” Sitting back in bed, I begin to realize Nick’s concern. Nick grabs his clothes and starts getting dressed.
“What are you doing? Are you leaving?” I ask rushing to his side.
“I can’t stay here Kayla, I’m dead remember?”
“Nick, you’re my husband you should stay with your wife and son.” His refusal to acknowledge me is infuriating. I jump on top of him, determined to stop him. “You are not leaving me!” I feel good about my stance until I remember one of the things I love about him, his strong arms. With a loving smile he lifts me easily off his body and to his side. “Nicholas Alexander Jayzon!”
Nick leans down into my sour face and laughs, “Yes, Princess?” Narrowing my eyes on him, I fight my smile. “Baby, I cannot stay here. Until I can figure out what Estrella is up to, until then I need to stay dead and out of sight.”
“But Nick …”
“No fighting me on this. I will be around and I will be watching over you and Nicky.”
“Ryan thinks his brother is dead, don’t you think he should know?”
“I am not sure yet, so until I am, do me a favor and keep it between us.” He kisses me, but before he can leave I grab his hand and pull him back to me.
“Can’t you stay for a little while longer?” I give him my sweetest eyes, pulling ham back to bed and rubbing my legs together with an enticing moan. “I mean at least until I fall asleep – please Nick.”
“Evil woman,” He whispers, guiding his hand smoothly up my leg, kissing my naval, massaging my breasts with his lips, and once again, he is mine. Only this time I am completely able to take him as I want him. Sitting up on top of him and with full control, I take my husband back.

Vendetta Teaser 3

“Fuck,” he curses, taking in the weapon. I squeeze it in my hand and try to swing again, letting him know I won’t give it up. “You’re going to hurt yourself.” He pries the shard out of my clenching fingers, and then puts his hand around my neck, squeezing. Warning. “You move, and I’ll fucking kill you,” he growls, strengthening his grip. I let my body go limp. He looks at his hand around my throat, and then his eyes find mine. I try to swallow, but he's practically suffocating me. He snatches his hand away and I gasp for air. “I didn’t even think of the fucking mirror,” he mutters to himself, sounding shocked, and maybe even a little impressed. He pulls out some rope from his back pocket. His fucking pocket. The man is psychotic.

Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway: Strapped (Strapped #1) By Nina G. Jones

Title: Strapped
Author: Nina G. Jones
Series: Strapped #1
Publication: August 1st, 2013
Category: Adult
Genre: Adult Erotic Mystery/Suspense

By all appearances, Shyla Ball has an enviable life: a loyal boyfriend, a great job, and family that loves her. She doesn't realize how deeply unsatisfied she is until she has an embarrassing encounter with a handsome stranger at a coffee shop. Taylor Holden, a successful businessman, takes a sudden special interest in her and offers her a job she cannot refuse. Soon after, she learns there is much more to this intensely private man than meets the eye. He is hiding many painful secrets, including why it is that he has seemingly plucked her out of obscurity for such a lucrative position. Her "perfect" world is turned upside down by her infatuation towards Taylor and in just a couple of months, her life looks nothing like it did before. While she is frightened by the changes she sees in herself, she cannot resist the lure of Taylor Holden. As Shyla slowly gains Taylor's trust, she learns of his complex history and how it has molded him into the person he has become. When elements of Taylor's secret past resurface and threaten to destroy them, Shyla finds out there may be more to Taylor's story than even he is aware of. Strapped is a story of passion, manipulation, obsession, and family secrets.


My Review


I don't even know how to start.I went into this book thinking oh it's going to be a book similar to 50 shades something like that with a hot alpha male and we will see where is goes from there.Well damn did it go places!

Shyla Ball has it all right, the loyal boyfriend, great family and job then why does she feel so unsatisfied? so lost? Her relationship with her boyfriend has lost its spark, they are stuck in a comfortable place yet it's not enough.Everything changes when she spills her coffee all over the hot, sexy and mysterious Taylor Holden.

I have a mask just like the one that Taylor wears.It allows you to walk the earth pretending you are like all the others...When we bumped into each other the first day, he recognized it.He could see right through the flimsy veneer.And so, we measured each other, tried to see if the other recognized our darkness.Bit by bit, we chipped away each others facade.

Taylor at first I was comparing to Christian Grey but yeah he is pretty closed off and there are similarities but Taylor has a much darker, edgier element to him.Both Shyla and Taylor have secrets, darkness that consumes them, but when the dark past begins to chase them and blends with the present will it break them apart for good or bring them together?

I have been in love, but this is more than that, this consumes my entire being.This is more than love.I am infatuated.I am possessed.I am bitten.I am sick.He has infected me.

I am infected.

Okay as you should all know, I hate cheating but I let this one slide because it worked in my favour, well its complicated I don't mind cheating as long as the people they are cheating with, are supposed to be together (in my eyes) and then after they cheat they get their shit together and be in an actual relationship. Am I making sense?

This book will leave you reeling, your emotions all over the place and for a good few minutes when you finish the book you will be numb..anddd then want to throw your kindle against the wall, then you will want to switch places with the kindle and throw yourself against the wall!!

Near the ending I was like omg somethings wrong, I have a bad feeling and I was screaming at Shyla, something is wrong!!! RUN BITCH RUNNNNN!!! But yeah bloody idiot ignored me..I know right? How could she? How could she not hear me? I nearly jumped into the book to save her!!

And then the ending..oh my, like my feelings arent already in mess sure just hit me with a cliffhanger and leave me!!

Why?? I ask. Why you gotto do this to me? Whyyyyyyyy!! *Sobs*
All these books ending on cliffhangers and the next book..yeh where the hell are you?! Oh that's right you ain't even finished *hibernates until next book is released*

"Why is it", he said, one time, at the subway entrance, "I feel I've known you so many years?"
"Because I like you",she said, "and I don't want anything from you."
