Twenty-year-old Sophie Blake, is trying her best to get her life back after a horrific dog attack ten months ago. However, this proves to be more difficult than she anticipated. With the help of her best friend Ben Slone, it seems as if she’s making progress, but the truth is that she can feel herself sinking deeper into a black hole…until a tall dark stranger comes knocking, looking for Ben.

Joshua Roxwell has been drowning his demons with Whiskey and woman in an attempt to deal with his guilt after the tragic death of his sister. When he finds an envelope addressed to Ben Slone, written by his sister before her death, he decides to track him down. Instead of resolving their differences, he meets the one girl who silences his demons…but redemption comes at a price.

This is a story of heartache, friendship and love, with a wicked twist…

Excerpt 1:
When we arrive, Matt gets out and talks to the police. The officer told him the bitch and the
owner is inside the house. I watched as they walk to the shed to get the pups. Just then, from
the corner of my eye something black bounces in the tall grass. It is one of the pups heading
towards the road. I get out and pick him up when voices from all directions catch my attention.

My eyes sweep to the officer yelling with his hands up, and then I see it, the lactating female heading straight towards me. I hear Matt call out my name as I turn my back towards
her and reach for the door, but it is too late. I have the yelping pup in my hands when she
jumps me from behind.

I don’t remember much from that point on, except hearing two shots being fired at close
range, then falling to the ground with the pup clenched to my chest. The first week in the
hospital is hell. They keep me on my stomach to have better access to the wounds on my back
and right shoulder. The pain is immense, and I am kept under sedation for the first few nights
because of the nightmares of a big black dog with red eyes standing at the edge of my bed,
fangs dripping with blood.

Ben and Alice visit a few times a day, and Matt comes around too, but it is clear that this
wasn’t what he signed up for. I decide to break it off when I get out of the hospital, but he beats
me to it. The day before I am due to be released he comes by with a mason jar of sweet tea,
compliments of Jimmy, the barman at the pub where we used to hang out. He knew it was my

His eyes betray him the moment he sets foot inside my room. We are history. He carefully
leans over and kisses me on the forehead, then sits down on the edge of the chair, fiddling with
the pocket of his pants. We talk about work, school and then, he blurts it out. I wait for the
ache, but there is nothing, instead I feel relieved that I am free.

I always thought that falling in love should feel like jumping from a cliff. A fall that scares
you as much as it excites you, that leaves you breathless and wanting more. The impossible
kind … that ruins you for everyone else.

This wasn’t it, and my chances of finding it have just become harder. I am not the same girl
that I was before. Finding that special guy prepared to carry my load with me, would be one in a
million, a fairytale come true, and just maybe, an impossible dream…

Excerpt 2:
Liquid fire surges through my veins as his lips crush mine. There’s a moment of hesitation
before my lips start to move with his, but when they do, it’s magical. The butterflies in my
stomach are frantically flapping their wings against my ribcage, my brain is a ball of string, and
my body is buzzing under his touch.

It is as if he pulls every unspoken coveted desire from my soul. His lips dripping with
promises that leave me feverish. Everything about this is so crazy. I do not know anything about
this alluring stranger, except Ben’s warning. The need building inside of me is drowning out the
small voice telling me to stop.

I groan in his mouth as his hands glide down the sides of my waist, then come to rest on
my hips. My lips move with his then he pulls away, leaving my skin on fire under his touch.
Suddenly everything around us disappears.

I can feel his erection pressing against my hip as he captures my mouth again, this time with an
all-consuming urgency, which leaves me breathless. Nothing could have prepared me for this
kiss, and then, too soon and without warning, he pulls away leaving me panting, in a haze of

Alice’s voice slices through the neon smoke and pulls me out of my haze. “Ben, no, WAIT!”
