“Ummm wow! Just wow!! Another 10 star book!! Johnny is just wow with Tahlia!” ★★★★★ Escape Reality Book Blog
There’s only one way this ends, and that’s with her by my side.
It started out as a search for a missing teammate, but quickly morphed into an intense attraction for the beautiful medical examiner.
Lust fueled me to follow her.
To find out everything I could about her.
To save her.
And when it came time to run, she chose me.
Caught up in a deadly game by my boss, Tahlia was the unexpected twist I didn’t see coming.
And the moment she put her hand in mine, I knew I was a goner.
There’s no one that can protect her like I can.
There’s no one that will make her scream like me.
Lust may have started this deadly game, but love will see it through to the end.
She doesn’t know it, but she’s already mine.
“Johnny!” she screamed. “What are you doing?”
“Tahlia, you know this guy?” the chief snapped, his gun aimed at me.
“Tahlia, we’re getting out of here. Come with me,” I ordered.
“Don’t move,” he snapped at her.
“I…what’s going on here?” she asked me.
I could see the panic rising in her eyes. I had to get her out now, or it would be too late.
“They’re accusing you of stealing the body, but you and I both know you didn’t do it.”
“Who are you?” the chief shouted. Thank God his finger wasn’t on the trigger, but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t shoot me.
“Tahlia, I know you’re innocent, and you’re going to have a hell of a time proving it behind bars.”
“How did you—” She shook her head in confusion.
“I bugged your apartment,” I said, being as honest as possible with her. “I know something’s going on with the body, but you’re not going to prove it behind bars.”
“You can’t prove it on the run, Tahlia,” the chief shouted.
“And who’s going to help you?” I snapped. “Him? He’s ready to take you in. He doesn’t even believe you.”
She looked between the two of us, clearly unsure of who to trust.
“If you run now, you’ll be hunted down, Tahlia. Don’t listen to him.”
“I would never let you get hurt,” I said calmly. “I know it’s a lot to ask, but I need you to trust me. There’s more going on than a body being snatched. If you stay, you’ll be convicted because of an altered video. If you want answers, you only have one option, and that’s to come with me.”
“Don’t do it, Tahlia!”
She looked at the chief, but I could feel her shifting to my side. As much as she was scared, she needed answers, and the chief wasn’t about to provide them.
“It’s now or never, Tahlia. The police are on their way,” I snapped.
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
