Release Tour, Theresa's Review and Giveaway: Enigma by Danielle Bannister

Title: Enigma Author: Danielle Bannister Genre: Romantic Suspense NA Release Date: May 25, 2016
I’m the girl no one sees. The bum on the street corner you avert your eyes from. The child no one loved. The lost soul no one sees fit to save. A person could go crazy being that alone, but not me. I dug myself out of hell and carried the flames with me. Therapists would call me a pyromaniac if they ever found out my secret. I will always remain an enigma; the puzzle piece that just won’t fit. Since I’m 18, I’ve decided to take charge of my life. Start over. Get a job…then disappear into the populace on my own terms. That was the plan. Until I ended up in Mullen, Nebraska and met Kyle King. He showed me a quiet peaceful life on a farm that was built with love and warmth. The kind of warmth even my precious fire couldn’t provide. Instead of dismissing me like the rest of the world, he chose to look right at me. Maybe the world wasn’t so cruel. Or maybe my downward spiral was just beginning. ***MATURE ADULT CONTENT. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR YOUNGER READERS*** **TRIGGER WARNING:  ABUSE/SEXUAL SITUATIONS**

"...unique, dark, addictive read." ~Two Book Pushers

"I'm not giving up on you."
"I know," I said, tears stinging my eyes. "That's' why I'm giving up on you."

Enigma by Danielle Bannister caught me off guard when I started reading. I went into this book with one expectation and received something totally different but well worth it!

Sarah is a runaway....if you can really call her that. Looking for a fresh start in California she begins hitch hiking her way across the country when she meets Al. Al has an affinity for helping runaways after the loss of his own daughter. He proposes a business arrangement that Sarah cannot refuse.

Sarah doesn't have friends or attachments and she likes it that's all that she has known. But when she meets Kyle everything begins to slowly change for her, including her outlook on the world. But the secrets that she keeps will drive a wedge that she may not be able to undo between her and whatever is slowly (and I mean slowly) brewing between her and Kyle.

Will the mistakes and decisions that Sarah makes throughout her journey to her new beginning be the end or the beginning for her? Will Kyle still look at her the same when he discovers the truth? You need to read to find out.
