I feel like I am wrapped in a cyclone. Everything is whirling around me, drawing the air out of my lungs and filling me with the best kind of turmoil. Every time his tongue slides against mine, a prickle in my gut tells me how right we are together. How much I need David. How much I need us.

I hope the cyclone never stops.

Emma Searfoss has spent a lifetime trying to escape her abusive stepfather. It’s why she moved far away from home. It’s why she’s kept no ties with her remaining family. And it’s why she’s got a major rage problem. When her neighbor shows up to fix the kitchen in her new apartment, his enigmatic charm calms the fire in her. David is cool and collected, and he makes Emma feel safe for the first time ever. But David has his own chilling past—his six previous girlfriends have all disappeared without a trace. Emma’s walking a dangerous line, but David’s pull is intoxicating. And impossible to resist…

This is a new adult romance with mature content for readers 17 and up.



I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

Okay, let me just say that this book has two of the most twisted, messed up characters in the history of new adult romance. However, they are also compelling and addictive. From the prologue until the very last sentence of the book, I could not put it down.

I read because I want to feel good. This book did not give me a good feeling. Instead, it gave me a dozen more emotions other than that. It annoyed me, scared me, puzzled me. It made me sad. It made me hopeful. It made me everything else.

There is a part two, which is already out, so I am definitely moving on to that book as soon as I finish this review. Claire Wallis has done an exceptional job in creating two characters who are so messed up in a way that readers will still love them and cheer for them and hope that they have a happy ending after all.
