This story isn’t about love, like, lust, or a happily ever after. This story, my story, is about struggle, pain and suffering. Fighting to stay afloat while being pulled under by what feels like the murky and powerful undertow of the ocean. Fighting for strength I so desperately need when all I am feeling is desolate and weak. I’m a girl who exudes hatred when a normal girl of my age and pedigree should be the picture perfect portrait of love.
Alcohol consumes me. Drugs numb me. Sex for money feeds the hollow abyss deep within me. How does a soon-to-be twenty-five year old escort turn her life around when the last several years of her life has been spent traveling down a very dark path?
She became my obsession, my every thought. She is the reason I wake up in the morning, plotting, scheming, exacting a revenge she so desperately deserves. But will she take my offer once she learns my true identity; sees the darkness within me, or will she hate me for lying to her all of these years, leading her to lose herself to the drugs and alcohol that have kept her ghosts at bay? Will she be my Precious?
Okay, wait. What even just happened?! For a second, I thought he was dreaming and couldn’t believe it. I had to reread the last couple chapters a couple times for it to sink in. Wow.
I’m a sucker for dark romance- I’ve been excited for this book since I read the prologue and I think first chapter earlier last year. I’ve been dying to get my hands on it since. If you’re familiar with the Alexa series, then you already know just how heartbreaking T.R.’s writing can be. That shows in this one, but add in the dark elements of romance. I worried it wouldn’t be as dark as I imagined, because for a while it wasn’t. But then the last, maybe 10 chapters it went from a “dark” book, to “pretty freaking dark” quick. After that first chapter, I literally said out loud, “holy crap, wow”.
I’ve only read one other dark book like this (which I won’t mention for fear of spoiling anything) but know it’s a dark book. It doesn’t have a normal ending. I’m trying hard not to give anything away, but take that from this.
I adore T.R.’s writing; I’m excited to see where she will go from here on out with her writing. I’m just in shock from this book mostly and will probably need some time to let this all sink in.
T. R. Cupak was born and raised in the California Bay Area. She now lives in a quiet town south of where she grew up with her husband and their shih tzu Harley. She is obsessed with cars, especially fast ones, and enjoys her music louder than anyone should. When she’s not at work or busy writing, you can find her curled up, reading and enjoying a fabulous glass of wine or a Dirty Shirley.
Despite her lifelong love of literature, Cupak lost touch with her creative side in her early twenties. Her passion for reading was rekindled six years ago, however, and in 2013 she started journaling. This practice helped Cupak hone her creative aspirations, and soon she saw her characters come to life. She has rediscovered her passion for storytelling and wants to share her words with everyone who wants to read them.
