Ever get that feeling you’re being watched?
You probably are.
Her sad eyes.
Her thick lips.
Her long dark hair.
Her quickening of breath.
Her hurried footsteps.
Her undiluted fear.
The anxiety a woman has when she knows she’s being followed does something to the sadistic animal inside me.
We all have issues, mine just run a little deeper than most.
My sister and I had a childhood tarnished by an abusive parent.
We grew up two very different breeds of our mothers’ creation.
Then I discover the beautiful, yet broken, Alice Young.
She’s seeking advice, a place to unburden her thoughts.
What she gets is a dangerous, callous predator who wants to quench his thirst with her tears.
My precious, Alice, feels so alone, but she’s not alone.
I’m watching her.
Erik Ross feeds on the fear of others.
Alice Young may prove to be too damaged, for even his appetite.
I didn’t expect a beginning like what our author has created. It’s really rough and heart wrenching – you’ll see why it has a psychological tag. You may even end up with a tear in the corner of your eye – you can always say its allergies.
Erik Ross is not a man you think of when you hear the word “hero”. He seems to be a very intelligent man but in some ways it’s hard to picture him being a businessman. This just shows how well the author has done at creating him. His past is very sad and the author shows how much it has affected his present.
This story is almost telling the reader to be cautious. Just because a man may be handsome on the outside doesn’t mean anything as to what he’s like on the inside. And make no mistake that goes for women as well.
Alice Young is a woman who feels picked on – some may even say bullied. Others may say that people are taking advantage of her. It’s something that will break your heart. There’s not much to this story where you get any sense of happiness.
Our story is one where you just have to let it unfold – you can’t guess. Erik has all the control. He’s the puppet master and we have no choice but to follow. Especially once he has Alice in his sights. There are just so many twists and turns that I was afraid that if I turned away for even a second I would miss something. How can something this dark have a happy ending or any type of ending?
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.
