He's desperate to remember.
She'll destroy everything to forget.
BLESK Bellamy is a beautiful 21-year-old musician with a dark past that always seems to corrupt her future. She's starting her first year of university and has secured a job playing at the local campus bar. Her brother and father worship her, and although she has suffered loss, things are finally looking up. . .
When Blesk sees Konnor for the first time she finds his presence captivating. He is gorgeous, intense, cheeky, and enigmatic.
KONNOR Slater is a charismatic 22-year-old grad-student who spends his spare time drinking and screwing his problems away. Konnor is a popular, university rugby player who hides his scars behind a wall of charm when in truth, he is completely lost. . .
When Konnor sees Blesk for the first time he finds himself in a strangely familiar daze. She captures his attention and makes him feel something he thought he’d never feel again.
The attraction between the two is undeniable. It borders on frenzy. Crazy. Impulsive. Two people who have worked their whole lives to find freedom and peace, seem to have found the opposite within each other. Intensity. Volatility. And it all threatens to expose what they have tried to escape.
Jealousy. . . "Where are you going with Drake tonight?” Her lips part and she’s sucking extra air in. Her chest rises and falls with more need. My eyes dart to her mouth to watch her tongue run along her lower lip, and I’m overwhelmed with the urge to taste that lip and that tongue."
Violence. . . "As I pick up the switch knife and feel the cold metal in my palm, I run my finger over the blade, the rigid edge grating my pad. The excitement of the following five-minutes forces blood directly to my groin and I find myself in a state of impatience, eager to show -"
Sex . . . "My lips trail their way desperately down her chin, down to my favourite part of her neck where her pulse throbs frantically, and all over the delicate skin around her chest."
Romance. . . "When I hear that sweet voice, my arms tighten around her, twitching with the need to protect her, and clutching with the need to keep her."
**Facing Us can be read as a standalone and has a HFN with a mystery that won't be unravelled until book three. Each book in the Kids of The District Series is told from a different character's perspective and explores a different romance.**
"This novel has the romance and sexiness of the best harlequin romances, but with a depth and grittiness that sets it apart from this genre.
This is an extraordinary initial offering from this author, and I look forward to her next release." - Verified Amazon Purchase, LibbyC.
"I really enjoyed this book! It was so much more than dark romance. It has suspense and mystery as well. The character development was on point. I can't wait to read the next installment!" - Amazon Review, Noreen Bruce.
"3.75 stars I haven’t given very many books 4 stars , maybe none at all . I don’t even know how I stumbled upon this book but I found it to be very well written . Strong h & h and the plot twist kept me on my toes. It has been a while since I read a book where I actually liked the heroine . This one was strong and likable. Hero was as well. The romance was there . I’ll most likely purchase book 2 of BLESK and Konnors story ." - Amazon Review, Amazon Customer.
