***Warning: Contains strong language, violence and scenes of an explicit nature***

Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.

This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge...

And revenge can only lead to one thing.


He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.

His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love.


I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her.

She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.

She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.

How could anyone move on from a betrayal so devastating, it cut down to the bone and rooted itself deep within? You could never forgive such heartache…

Or could you?

From the moment Tyler was six, she fell in love with that cocky eight-year-old boy with the black spiky hair, captivating blues eyes, and scruffy uniform. From the moment he punched a boy for hurting her, Tyler knew there was no going back. They were always meant to be together...


Then everything changed. The stage was set like a tragic Shakespearean play, and Tyler’s and Dean’s world—as they knew it—had ended.

Or had it?


My name was Jessica now. I faked my own death, changed my identity, and moved thousands of miles across the ocean just to escape the one man I would never get out of my heart. I had a four-year-old son I adored more than anything in the world. On one fateful, horrific night, the life I knew disappeared in the blink of an eye. I left people behind. People I cared about. People I would never forget. People I loved.

But had I truly moved on?

No one said leaving behind the one man you had loved since you were six would be easy. I lived life day-to-day. I even met a man and tried to settle down. Evan was a man any woman would desire. So why could I not love him the way he obviously loved me? Why couldn’t I move past the dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who consumed my every thought? I may have left him, but he had never truly left me.

I could never love another man. Dean made sure of that the day he breezed into my life. I was only half a woman now. I had been broken and bruised by the one man I thought I could always love and trust. How could I let go of something like that? I suppose I just had to. I was just getting by with each day that passed. I was coping. I was managing, and that was keeping me from falling apart.

But then disaster struck again. And it was on that day…

Everything changed.


You can’t hide forever, Tyler. I will always be hunting you, always be searching, and will never give up. If there was ever one certainty in your life, it was that. You slipped through my fingers, not once but twice. You took my heart with you when you left me that day. No amount of alcohol, women, or punching bags would block you from my mind. You couldn’t be dead. I wouldn’t allow you to be dead. You’re out there somewhere. I must congratulate you that you had evaded me for this long. You always were a smart girl. How could I not have fallen in love with you? You did escape me this time, but I will find you, Tyler. I promise you that. And when that day comes…

I will finally make you MINE.

Deviant (Deviant, #1)Deviant by Jaimie Roberts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I want to start this review first by saying I got this book on accident. At the time I didn't even realize I was requesting to read the arc. That being said omg I loved every moment of this book. I'm not a person who usually will read these dark books. Honestly though this book had so much depth to the story. At any given moment you had no idea what was coming. And at first I did think it was strange that Tyler would let this stranger come in her house and do the things he did. But I believe subconsciously she new who he was. That's why she was never fearful. I think my absolute favorite thing about this book though was Jeremy I loved there relationship. I'm American so yes I am looking up twiglets maybe I will order some online. Dean was a very unique character he gives you a glimpse of his tender side. And how cold and vicious he can be. But I did love him regardless of the hatefullness he would spew. I think he was just so damaged he needed to blame anybody for the hand he was dealt. I don't even think he knew that he was so wrong about everything. I'm so glad and thankful for this arc and this is my honest review. Now on to the next book.

Redemption (Deviant, #2)Redemption by Jaimie Roberts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The title of this book says everything. This is not as dark and crazy as the first book in this series but it did have a few scenes that kept you on the edge of your seat. But mostly it was about redemption and loss and the most beautiful love of two people you have ever seen. The hurt and agony these characters went through was horrible but beautiful at the same time. I am blown away by everything this book had to offer. Comedy oh my goodness I laughed so much in this book Jeremy was the cutest funniest thing ever. I loved his personality he was a mixture of both his parents. But sadly I really did love Evan he was amazing but her heart could never belong to another. Jimmy was just as amazing as Dean. Both of these characters were strong and heroic type of characters which made me understand them better. This book was really a great chance to get to meet the characters under a different circumstances. But you still see how badass they are. The thing I loved most of all was they felt real.
