Summary

Riley Brooks appears to be leading a charmed life on the outside. On the inside, she's spiraling as a result of an abusive relationship. Once the relationship comes to a tumultuous end, she loses very nearly everything, her sanity included. As an effort to promote her career, she is forced to tour with an all-male rock band and is not looking forward to the experience.....that is, until she meets the cryptic, playful lead singer, Landon Stone.

Over time, she finds that he's everything she wants, but he has life-threatening demons and addictions that she's not sure he can overcome. She lets herself be sucked into the turbulent world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, picking up her own addictions along the way. Danger and loss is at every corner, and she isn't sure how much she can take. While she invests herself into this man in efforts to heal him, will she be able to heal herself before it's too late?

I don’t know what I did wrong.

I’d gone over it countless times in my head since that day. The turning point. The first time he smacked me clean across the face.

He apologized profusely and promised me it would never happen again.

“I let my emotions get the best of me. I love you so much. Please, forgive me…”

Initially, I wanted to act like it didn’t happen. After all, he promised me it wouldn’t happen again. It was a blip. A lapse in judgement. Things were heated. Everyone makes mistakes, etc. I was prepared to forgive and forget.

But then I stepped into the harsh white lighting of the master bathroom, and there it was. The insulation pink, puffy blotch in the shape of his hand. It throbbed like a neon light above a New York City pub.

What made things change in that instant? Was it something I said or did? Did I challenge him to the brink? Was I so completely unbearable that he could no longer control himself?

What launched us into this alternative universe where we weren’t soulmates?

 

From that moment on, I began to die.
