I don’t sleep until my body gives me no choice. I go until the last drop of energy is zapped from my bones and my muscles are too weak to keep my eyes from closing. Only then am I able to achieve true peace: A slumber without dreams, without memories of my real life nightmare. I thought I was escaping my past, finally running toward the future I deserved.
Until I met Ryan. One week with him had me questioning everything I was sure I wanted out of my life. Being with him means I can’t leave my past behind. Being without him might just kill me anyway.
One week destroyed everything.
One week shattered my dreams
One week I lived in the sun
But the darkness never truly fades.
This book is recommended for adult audiences due to depictions of sex, violence and drug use.
I’ve never read any books by Josie Leigh and after reading this one, I’ve got to say, I’m a fan!
This story is about Ryan and Carrie’s seven day journey together. She’s running to escape the things she must do everyday to maintain a roof over her, and her sister’s, head and drugs for her father. Ryan is running from something tragic that happened to his buddy in another town, that had nothing to do with Ryan, but thugs see it differently.
During their journey they fall in love, but don’t admit it to each other, right away. Upon returning to their town, all hell breaks loose.
Let me just say, everyone got what they deserved!
I love a book that has sex, and most importantly, has a story to it! This book has all of those qualities! It’s very well written and you WILL fall in love with Carrie and Ryan!!! Ryan is such a good guy and I’m totally in love with him!
I will be reading more of Josie Leigh’s books!
