(The final version should have 15 Chapters + an epilogue)

I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well.

Who am I?

Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most importantly, I am the man she loves.

She loves me. It’s quite sick, isn’t it?

Of course, there’s more to our story than can be surmised in a few short sentences, but I’m at a loss for justifying my behavior back then. I assume if you’re reading this, I don’t need to make those justifications. You’ve already made your own.

You’re reading this because you want to know about the rest of the story. You want to know what happened that warm summer night in September of 2010, the night I met Livvie at The Paseo. It was the night my life changed all over again.

It didn’t happen exactly as Livvie said. She’s been very kind to me in the retelling of our story. The truth is far more…complicated.

Book Dame’s Rating 4.5 Stars

I could not stopping thinking about this series!! I wasn’t even sure if I liked this first book, then second I enjoyed more and after read the third I realize that these book really got under my skin. This series was very well written and came full circle. I had a hard time with my own feelings about Caleb and Livvie. I think this book brought so much more out of the love story and yes that is what it is. It really took this book for me to be okay with that! I really loved Caleb in this book, his patience an love was so genuine! I was also astounded by his growth and the way he over came his past! He had such a crazy life and just as much a victim as Livvie maybe more. Looking back at this series I’m floored by the thoughts and feelings it brings out.  I have to say that this dark series ended with a glowing love! Amazing writing and series!!!
