Adrian Recommends
Have you ever read a book that you love, then want to throw against the wall, then love, then have to put down, then love, then have to walk away, then love, then you're so pissed you can't see straight? Me too. This book is beyond crazy intense. It's emotional and gritty and dark. It had me crying and yelling then smiling and laughing. And it's dirrrrrrrrty. Deliciously dirty. It's everything I love and hate and love to hate. [June 2015]

Favorite Quotes

“But for now, the only thing the ears wanna hear from your pretty lips is my name being called out while I fuck away every bad pent-up memory and twisted shit you’ve ever seen right out of your mind.  Cool?”

Ryder’s an all-consuming vortex made up of nothing but pure, primal, fierce, mind-fucking alpha male.  There’s not a girl on campus who doesn’t chew her lip, clench her thighs, or giggle like a stupid twat when he’s within a hundred feet of her.

“I need you a hundred times more than I need my next breath, a thousand times more than I need my next heartbeat, and a million times more than I need to wake up to the sun hanging in the sky.”

Hurt.  Pain.  Confusion.  Attraction.  Lust.  All a lethal but beautiful cocktail that’s about to combust, exploding each of us into a state of numbness, a state of healing through what we need.

Each other.

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author of Collide and Pulse comes a gritty new novel about a shattered young woman who unexpectedly falls for two best friends.

They were a storm I never saw coming, an unforeseen heartbreak on the edge of a dangerous cliff.

Amber Moretti’s life changes in the span of minutes. An orphaned outsider, she is desperate to start fresh the moment she walks onto campus. In the time it takes to cross the university’s dining hall, she meets two men who bring color, air, and light to her darkened world.

They became my addiction, each a needle to my next hit, my high.

Brock Cunningham’s appeal is dizzying, a potent force Amber can’t deny. A green-eyed smooth talker, he instantly attracts Amber. It doesn’t take long for him to consume her every thought, her every breath.

Ryder Ashcroft, a blue-eyed, tattooed, and pierced bad boy, turns Amber off immediately—that is, until he kisses her, stealing a piece of her heart, her soul.

They were as opposite as fire and ice, yet I ached for them equally.

Never knowing she could be broken down in so many unexpectedly beautiful yet petrifying ways, Amber finds herself falling for both men.

Immoral? Maybe. I say undeniable. Uncontained.

But one devastating event changes everything, shattering each of their lives...and Amber isn’t sure she can recover from it.

About The Author
Adrian Perkins

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom’s Jackie Collins novels. I’m a romance junkie and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever BBF.

I’m a Part-time Realtor and full-time Mommy with a husband, 2 kids and 3 cats. I love to travel almost as much as I love to read.
