Kristen Luciani

Raw. Cold. Detached. Domineering…

Paul Emerson lives life like he f*cks. It’s the only way to survive, to battle the demons forever lurking in his subconscious, to resist succumbing to the darkness that perpetually overshadows his existence. As a ruthless venture capitalist with an insatiable appetite for power and control, he has no tolerance for emotion or any tryst spanning more than a few hours. Feelings equate to weakness and weakness destroys livelihoods.

Driven. Focused. Bitter. Guilty…

Avery Hunter is tormented by what she can’t change, but letting go is never the preferred option. Her successes aren’t nearly enough to fill the gaping void in her heart and soul. No, revenge always begets satisfaction and fulfillment…except when it extinguishes the last source of brightness in her life. Karma is a bitch and irony is her evil twin sister.

Damaged. Rejected. Broken…

The woman who harbors and the man who resists. With so much baggage and even more angst, can their wounded souls finally find solace in one another? Or is their future happiness doomed to be ravaged by the lies and deceit that litter their pasts?

Rachel's Review~
This is a story about a story based on misguided feelings, misunderstandings, and just plain ole bad luck.
Avery has a deep seated need to hate Paul Emerson..even after he saves her life. It's been years in the why does she get goosebumps when she looks in his eyes? Why does her heart flutter every time he's near? And why, oh why, did she write that book? even with her pen name being virtually impossible to track down...
I loved these characters and the storyline running throughout. Not only do we get a wonderful love story, we get a little lesson. Make sure of the facts before you take it public, or who knows how many people, including yourself, you may unwittingly hurt.
Kristen Luciani writes a great story. The cadence is so smooth and transitory. You're never questioning who is doing the "talking" or where you're at in the story. Everything flows wonderfully.
With enjoyable characters, great dialogue and winning witty banter, this is most definitely a great way to spend a couple of hours! I only wish it could have been longer and let Rochelle's character go to town for a while, causing more angst and suspense.
4.0 Stars
