Escaping Reality

Rating: 4/5 Cogs


Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?


Wow!  This book catches you in quickly and doesn't let you go.  Liam and Amy are an electric couple, and sparks fly once they meet on the airplane taking Amy to her new life.  There are so many secrets in this book that it's amazing these two breathe, let alone spend any time together.  I felt like a fly on the wall, learning about these two shrouded characters.

The characters were realistic and well developed.  It's difficult to review without spoilers, due to it's crazy ending, but I was amazed by the level of shock that was inflicted upon me when I find out these two have even more secrets that they're hiding from one another.  There's so much left in this story that I just want to know!  None of the characters in this book are what they seem, but I can't quite put my finger on what exactly is going on quite yet. 

I had so much fun with this story, and it's definitely a great start to a new series.  Trust me when I say, the ending will leave you wanting so much more!  I can't wait to read the next installment!
