At the start of her freshman year, Addison Hayes's world is tragically turned upside down and she finds herself spiraling into the darkness of destructive habits. Now three years later, she's still battling the ghosts of her past.

With the start of her senior year, Addie finds herself entangled in a twisted game between twin brothers, Chase and Chance Logan. Their path of destruction leaves an already tormented girl feeling even more lost and confused. But sometimes out of complete chaos can arise a blindingly blessed insight whose name is Jake Riley.

Jake is like no other guy that Addie has ever met before. He doesn't scare easily. Unfortunately for Addie, Jake wants her; darkness and all.

Will Addie lose herself in the darkness or will she be brave enough to finally set herself free?


"Why are we in such a hurry?" I asked, as she walked around the corner of the building and came to a dead stop in front of apartment number 107.

    "Don't be mad," she begged as she slid her key into the lock and turned. 
    "What are you talking about?" I asked. This was going to be bad. Any time, Kara asked me not to be mad; I usually ended up pissed as hell at her. 
    "Last week, Devon got a new roommate." She didn't have to tell me who it was, I already knew. 
     "Let me guess," I said, tapping my finger against my lips as if I were thinking and watched her smile grow even wider.
     "I swear, it wasn't on purpose, Addie. I really thought the two of you would hit it off." She pushed open the door and thankfully from the quietness that greeted us, it appeared no one else was at home. 
"Chill out, he's at the shop with Devon. He was asking about you, though. I do believe he's smitten." 
     "Shut up! You and your Regency romances," I said, laughing at her. I didn't really want to hear it. 
     Jake liking me was the last thing that I needed right now. I walked past her, dropped my backpack on the floor and flopped down on the couch where I immediately sank down and gravitated to the middle. The springs were broken. The place was messy, but I'd expected worse. It actually wasn't too bad for two single guys. I'd always thought it kind of small, but the rent was dirt cheap. The kitchen sat off to the side. Everything was open. 
     Kara pointed at the closed door behind the couch, and I twisted around in my seat to watch her. I knew the first room was Devon's then there was a bathroom in between, and then another room. The last time I'd visited, Devon had a set of drums sat up in the other bedroom and a carburetor had lain torn apart and scattered across the floor. 
    "That's Jake's," she said, walking toward the closed door. "Let's look in his room." 
     "No!" I shrieked. "Are you crazy? He could come in and catch us." 
     "No, he won't," she insisted, smiling back at me and wiggling her eyebrows. "Come on, Addie. Live a little. It's your birthday." 
     She already had the door open by the time I got up from the couch and walked around to join her. There was no stopping Kara once she got an idea in her head. "He's a neat freak," she declared in a shocked voice, and I stared around the small cramped space of his bedroom thinking she was nuts. 
     "No, he's not," I denied. He wasn't a neat freak; at least not by my standards. 
     A single black blind covered the narrow window in the room. His bed was unmade. The blankets and sheets twisted. An unwanted image popped into my mind and immediately, I stopped myself before I could even go there. His mattress and box springs sat on the floor along with the clothes he'd worn the night before. I could feel my face growing warm, and I hoped Kara didn't notice. 
     Jake wore boxers!
