When she attends course registration the last week of summer break, she never imagines she’ll meet a student with a past as mysterious as her own.

Based on a true beginning, this romantic-suspense novel contains a psychological twist that will leave you questioning everything. Reviews appreciated. Recommended for 18+ for some steamy scenes & strong language.
My Review: This novel is one ginormous intriguing romance. Why? Elements that seem impossible happen. I love the happily ever after books but this novel has darkness involved, almost a murder by a crazy ex and the mind games are horrible. Love prevails and anyone can get past trials and tribulations, alone or with help. Resources are available. NOTE: If the use of the f bomb bothers you, then don’t read this book. If abuses, especially sexual, bothers or triggers you, don’t read this book. If neither of those bother you, then do read this book and try to figure out the psychological events.
