I thought I was done.
I couldn’t take my eyes off her as the bullet tore through me, leaving me with nothing but the hope that I had done enough to save her. The darkness tried to engulf me—to brand me as its own and drag me to my fate.
Waking to see her tear-stained face above me was enough to make my heart stutter. I was alive and free from that place—but not from the toll it had taken on my mind and body. My story should have ended, but one woman kept standing in the way of that.
The only way I could have her was to find a way to put the darkness to rest.

“Ms. Callahan has a unique style of writing that helps transport her readers into the minds of these intense, damage characters, making you feed off of their emotions and in turn making the book, more than just another dark romance read, but an all out intense experience.” ~Shayna Renee
“Skye Callahan blew the retelling in a different pov out of the water… While this book shadows part of Irrevocable… it felt like a whole new experience.” ~Alicia, Mean Girls Luv Books
“The emotions that James goes through are so solid and palpable in this story that my heart literally ached for him… Filled with suspense, passion and a very strong love, this was a 5 star read for me.” ~Naughty Mom Story Time
“The best part of this 2nd book for me was James and Rose having to come to terms with their master/slave relationship, the enjoyment they ultimately got out of it (even though it is very hard for either of them to admit it) and how they are now going to deal with those feelings in the real world, in a real relationship. I found it emotionally interesting (and, yes, I’ll admit, HOT!).” ~Goodreads review
The raw, deep feelings were well portrayed by the author and I couldn’t put it down until I finished. ~Amazon
Damaged and,trying to move on the characters find their way through a mine field of problem and in the end love prevails. This book tackled some emotional roadways and I was hooked with each turn. ~Amazon
“But wow, just when you thought you knew everything that was going to happen from book one…. this author takes you on a completely different crash course.
This book was in no way just a repeat of the previous book in a different POV. This book was raw and gritty, and although we are finally getting everything in James’s POV, he’s still that strong, alpha, mysterious wanna keep man. He didn’t lose himself the more into the book you get.
I couldn’t get enough. ~Amazon”
I thought the first book was great, but reading everything from James’ POV made the story so much stronger. I especially loved learning how he was able to reconcile his actions at the Retreat with his current physical and emotional needs. It would be impossible to expect anyone to live through what Rose and James did and not come out changed and affected. This book showed the true humanity that existed in both of them that allowed them to survive. ~Amazon
