    Our Recommendation

    Holy WOW, what a debut novel from #Shameless18 author, Jessica Ruben. Eve and Vincent were amazing together. Both fighting to survive. Both facing hardships and struggles. Both grasping for a connection and affection. I loved how Jessica wrote about the gritty, raw, ugly version of New York. The topics discussed are harsh and uncomfortable. I loved how strong Eve was through everything that was thrown at her. She was smart and fierce and relentless. I fell in love with her right away. I loved how rough around the edges Vincent was and the story around how he came to be that way. He adored Eve and the way he protected her tugged at my heart strings. It ends with a slight cliffhanger BUT, Reckoning (book 2) is already out so you do not have to wait! This story was so emotional and REAL, in every sense of the word. Way to hit it out of the park, Jessica!

    Publisher Synopsis

    via Amazon

    As the bus approaches my stop on the Lower East Side, I raise the hood of my black sweatshirt. Anonymity is key in my neighborhood—particularly as a lone female walking at night.

    All I want is to leave my crime-ridden shadow of a home in New York City. I’ve done everything I can to keep my head down and focus on my studies. College is my only goal; love has never been on the map…
    That is, until my sister brings me to an underground fight, where I meet a gorgeous and mysterious man: Vincent.

    He is the ghost in my shadows, showing up to feed me pieces of his upper-crust life, then evaporating into darkness until his next visit. I’m falling hard and fast. How can I trust him amidst the depth of his secrets?

    Vincent may be even more dangerous than the dark world I’m trying to escape.

    I love how delicate you are. Soft. You’re a siren on a quiet street. You’re all I hear.
    It’s just a trace of something unique, and it doesn’t make him look kind. In fact, his face and entire demeanor is absolutely feral.
    I want to lick you until you’re screaming my name.

    I read. I create. I get in trouble. That is me in a nutshell. I live in a snarky, artistic, eclectic world where I make jewelry and where BDSM and Dark Erotica are high on my reading list. I am an Alice in Wonderland Freak, an Edgar Allan Poe lover and an ocean addicted mermaid. I like originality when it comes to my books. The dirtier, the better. I am here to Discover, Share and Obsess. Join me, will you?
