The lines are blurred between what is real and what isn't, the darkness that was once a place I feared was now a place of safety. If I stayed in the darkness, the hellish reality of what was truly happening no longer seemed real.
But I was about to be pulled out from under the consuming blanket of dark shadows, and plunged into the murky depths of my past. I was about to be shown my demons and all it's evil sides, all of it's pain and grief. I could only hope I survive it.
What happens when the world you once knew crumbles and falls at your feet? Who will find me? Who will save me from my demons?
My dark prince or my white knight...
And will I find myself in the process.
I thought I was all “good to go” for FINDING ME but fuck me…I couldn’t be more wrong. My heart aches, my senses are on overdrive. I feel off kilter. I feel buzzed.
SK emotionally roofied me. It’s official.I have OD on emotion.
FINDING ME fucked with me from the get go. And did not let up.
I forgot how much I loved Neva and my beautiful Logan. Angel too, I guess.
Their journey of self-discovery, healing, and love continues @ the jaw dropping cliffhanger from book one, FINDING YOU.
Neva discovers who is responsible for her abduction. It knocks her on her ass. She is an emotional mess. It is heart shattering. This sets in motion a whirlwind of life changing events for the crew. Logan is less alpha this time around but still sexy as hell…so very loyal, loveable, and selfless. I love him. Hmmm. I’m not sure what to say about Angel. He had a bad childhood and daddy issues. He is trying to resolve them. But all I want to scream at him is MAN THE FUCK UP, BUTTERCUP. Angel is kinda on my shit list this time around. When you read FM, you will see why he licks hairy, shit covered dingleberrries off a fat chicks’ sweaty ass. Idk, maybe there is more to him???
I am warning your ass to be prepared. For reals.
You will cry. Hard. Ugly.
You will white knuckle your kindle in fits of “WTF” while having a mini-turrets outburst “dumbass~onenut~cockeater~fucktard~ regurgitated-cum guzzling cunt”
You will find yourself smiling and giggling in certain “sweet spots” ;)
You will have more angst than you can handle at times. Damn, it hurts sooooo good.
You will have your heart beaten, bruised and broken but beautifully mended by the last page.

"Neva, don't walk away from me!" Logan spits.
He is angry. What right did he have to be angry with me? I wasn't the one flirting with another girl. Why was he even here anyway? "Go away, Logan!" I say, walking faster.
Suddenly my arms are latched to my back and I am being spun around. My heartbeat picks up around twenty notches as I come eye to eye with Logan.
"Why the hell are you always running from me? I can't take it when you run from me!"
"I'm not doing this now. Let me go." I say, trying to get my wrist free from his grasp.
"No, we are doing this now. Why the hell did you run?"
"We're all running from something, Logan." I spit, repeating Dex's words.
"You still don't get it do you? How much clearer do I need to be for you to understand that I'm not going anywhere? I have been in love with you for ten years, Neva! Ten years. It isn't just going to go away!"
"I never asked you to love me! Why are you doing this to me?" "Because I hate seeing you fall and not get back up. I want to be the one to catch you, but you keep pushing me away!"
"What do you want from me?" I whisper.
"You. Just you. All of you. Every broken piece."
I bow my head. He releases my wrists from behind my back, and they drop to my side. I can't give him what he wants. I just can't do it. I will break him. Christ, I break myself on a daily basis.
"I can't give you that." I say, taking a step back.
"I'm not giving you up without a fight, Neva. You can't just walk away from us!"
"I am protecting you the only way I know how."
"I don't need protecting. What part of me looks like it needs protecting?"
"Your heart." I whisper. I gulp back the tears that were begging to release. I would not cry. But every time I pushed back that feeling, it hurt just a little bit more.
"You're breaking it right now." He whispers, taking a step towards me.
"I will break it over and over again, Logan. My nightmares will hurt you, my fear of people being ripped away from me will gut you, and my anxiety will spike yours."
"I can take pain, Neva. I had dealt with it for the past three weeks. I would rather have the pain with you, than without you."
"I … I." The words are at the tip of my tongue. Waiting to release, but I know if I say them, everything will change. Nothing will be the same and I will drag him into the pit of hell where my heart lies and my nightmares are real.
