*Author Note: This is not your average romance story. Some people will kill for love.*
He’s come to kill me.
I’m a user and abuser of my own body. In my darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.
Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.
I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X: the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

Mr. X is one stone cold killer... with a past... a dark, ugly evil past that spans generations.
This past is intrinsically intertwined with Jay, a completely lost young woman....literally, as she has no memories shy of just short time before...
Let me tell you that the twists and turns of this story are 'grade A' violently twisted. You feel like you are on a horrific carnival ride for about half of the book just trying to figure out anything about Mr. X and his obsession with Jay, about his past but more importantly, about his reasons "why?" For a while, I felt the ride would never stop.
The abuse he suffered at the hands of his own mother is unfathomable - it is violent, dark, sickening and will never leave me.
This story is about as dark as they come, and I keep saying that word... 'dark,' but I can't describe it any other way. It pulls you in, under, and invades your psyche until the very last page, and then after. It keeps you guessing, cringing and just wanting to devour it so you can try and understand it.
The perfect type of story that I love!!
Not the fainthearted but if, like me, you like a book that shocks you into submission and makes you think... then dark romance doesn't get much better than this!
