“Sexy-hot romance meets mind-bending mystery, and all I can do is beg for more!” – USA Today Best Selling Author Samanthe Beck
The world is a scary place, even when you know who you are, where you come from and most importantly, who your enemies are.
So imagine how I felt when I woke up inside of Mayford Mental Institution, strapped to a bed in a dark, empty room with no recollection of how I got there. Try to picture having no family or friends to help you try to remember and adjust to a totally new life.
If only my problems stopped there. If only I didn’t have someone trying to torment me at every turn. If only my life didn’t become more and more complicated the more I started to remember.
It started out okay enough – my friend-turned-psychiatrist Mark found me a job and a place to live. My neighbor Keegan took me in under her wing and helped me adjust. Wyatt, a dark, brooding and dangerously sexy new tenant moved in the day after me, taking on the task of reminding me what blinding lust feels like.
What goes up, must come down, and as soon as life starts to feel like something I can handle, the gravity of my messed up life yanks me right back down on my ass. Kind of crazy how quickly you can go from being completely apathetic about your unknown future, to fearing that your future might not even exist at all….
Anger, fear and confusion team up with each other and throw a tantrum.
She practically skips in his direction, looking at him like he’s been dipped in chocolate and she’s got a craving for something sweet.
I swear, it’s always the damn quiet ones that are truly batshit. They bottle up all their crazy so much that they just fly right past that grey area and straight into crazy town at the drop of a hat.
I am struggling to come to grips with how I feel about this book and how to rate it. I enjoyed the snarky humor, banter, and unpredictable and intriguing storyline. However, I struggled to like the characters; Brailey was an awkward and contrary mess of contradiction and confusion. She was also annoying and tended to exasperate me. Wyatt was sexy yet moody and his indecisive back and forth tendencies were dizzying. Yet – the fact that I continued to care about them and remained interested in the story tells me something. But – the frequent conflict, crankiness, irritability, arguing, push/pull melodrama – but maybe that is just me… I tend to find that tiresome although I know others enjoy being teased and the tension of near constant angst. The suspense was well-paced with considerable twists and turns to keep plucking at my curiosity – I couldn’t decide which characters were trustworthy, as everyone seemed to be playing a role… I developed and discarded numerous theories. In sum, it did not fully register on my meter as being Great or “I really liked it,” but it was considerably better than just Good or “Okay.”

Author, mother, wife, singer/songwriter, aspiring comedian – I wear many hats. Some of them fit, some of them look ridiculous, and all of them are fun. Life’s too short to take anything too seriously, so I don’t.
Sarcasm is my go-to, especially when it’s most inappropriate. Need someone to make an uncomfortable situation even more awkward? I’m the girl for the job.
I’m ridiculously A.D.D. and I own it. I have a serious addiction to ecards and the majority of my Pinterest account is dedicated to them. The key to my heart is glitter and caffeine – my needs are basic.
I’m a bookaholic and I crush hard on my book boyfriends and their authors. Some might call me obsessive, but I disagree. That word really doesn’t do justice to how crazy I get when it comes to something I’m passionate about. I’m not afraid to go fangirl on you, so don’t test me.
Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask. I’m an open book, and I love to hear from readers.
