DEVIL MAY CARE
Available May 29th
The anticipated third instalment of the Butcher Boys series is almost here!
Are you ready to go home with Sawyer?
“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home …”
If only I could click my magic heels and get the hell out of here, but I’m not a girl, and I can’t. And besides, for me, miracles never happen.
I’m crazy. Psychotic. One outburst short of snapping the thin grasp I have on reality. But who can blame me?
We all cope in different ways.
And her way is the most confronting of all.
How do you define it? I guess it’s up to the individual. Love can be a sweet gesture of flowers on your anniversary. Love can be a meal waiting at home after a long day at work. Love can be a gentle caress. Or the unspoken words in your lover’s eyes.
Love isn’t a backhand, given because of a warm beer. Love isn’t wearing long-sleeves to hide bruises from the ladies at the supermarket.
I thought I’d never experience love. Such emotion didn’t seem to fit with what I had—who I was.
But he stepped in, and showed me his.
He pulled me from the dark abyss I had lost myself to, and showed me the simple things which could bring such joy. Sun on my face. The smell of fresh coffee. Colours in the autumn leaves. All the little things.
He shows me these things, but he doesn’t share in them. He knows happiness, but he doesn’t feel it. He will give love, but never accept it.
He saved me. Now it’s my turn to return the favour …
** WARNING: DEVIL YOU KNOW IS A DARK CONTEMPORARY, DEALING WITH THE SUBJECT OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE **
When all you have left is choice, how do you ensure you make the right one?
I thought that losing my family was the linchpin to my suffering; the thing which would forever hold my head under the dark waters of regret.
But I was wrong … so wrong.
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, and what threatens us only serves to feed the beast.
My boy is in trouble, and it’s time this father stood up for what he should have a long time ago.
Only, after years of believing I deserved to spend my days alone, punishing myself for the mistakes I made, I’ve finally found the truth—her.
When she needs me as much as my son, how will I decide which path to take? Will I be doomed to forever make the wrong choice?
And will I, once again, lose everything I love and drown in my regret?
