Synopsis (via GR)
One day, Nick Donovan had it all; a beautiful, pregnant wife, a nice house, a great job. The next day he is on his own, starting from scratch with nothing but a few suitcases and his old truck. Nick flees to the opposite coast of Florida, trying to leave his ex-wife and the memories behind. But that couldn’t happen. Soon Nick finds that he is tied to Shelley in a way that he hadn’t expected. And, in her bitterness, she does everything she can to ensure his misery. Brandy is Shelley’s opposite; wild, sensual, free-spirited. With Brandy, Nick is able to rebel against all that Shelley stands for. Brandy quickly leads Nick into a world of sex, drugs, and cash. And now Nick finds himself caught between the two worlds, desperate to stay afloat.
Is there such a thing as Karma?
As the synopsis states, Nick Donovan had it all until he walked into his house to find his wife and best friend in his bed. Devastated, he packs up, leaves and moves 2 1/2 hours away. Having limited funds, since his wife got everything, he rents an apartment and meets Brandy and her friends that also live in the building. There is a strong physical connection to Brandy but he soon finds out that his new friends are into drugs, especially cocaine.
He learns his ex-wife is pregnant and the baby is his, but how can he take care of a baby with no money? The first weekend he has his daughter, he falls in love with her but limited funds is making it difficult to give her the necessities. Brandy suggests maybe making some quick cash by selling the cocaine. He now has a dilemma. Make some fast cash or stick with his morals and beliefs?
This was the first book I read by this author but instantly knew it wouldn’t be the last. I enjoyed her writing style because it allowed me, to not only picture the characters, but also feel their emotions. The story’s pace was nonstop, which had me wanting to read “just one more chapter” and finding I had read many because I had to know how this would end.
Captivating and realistic. Betrayal, murder, love, deception and more filled this book with an ending that was incredible and surprising.
An outstanding riveting read!
