#1 Best Seller in Erotic Suspense When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes. In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that's true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I've been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what's left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers...but so far, nothing. Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it's nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiance disappeared while deployed. He never came home, burning a hindrance of pain and agony within my soul. For so long, I lived my life believing everything happens for a reason, until now. 'Cause none of it makes any sense. Why Nate? Why only him? Since getting through each breath is a struggle, I put on a fake persona, pretending I'm someone I'm not, living my life recklessly. Because for me, it was all taken far too soon."

Melodrama and erotica fight for center stage in this jarringly uneven opening to the Every Soul contemporary series. Bain was the star of the UConn basketball team and was planning to play professionally until his twin sister, Kinsey, took her own life. In the six months since then, Bain has spiralled into an abyss of grief and pills. Meanwhile, Arions fiancé, Nate, is missing and presumed killed in action in Afghanistan. Believing she will never find love again, she restricts herself to emotionless sexual encounters. After a chance meeting at a bar, Arion and Bain discover that they share the experience of traumatic loss, and they quickly develop an intense relationship and begin to turn their lives around. Numerous weighty issuessuch as Bains reliance on pills, his mothers alcohol abuse, and the suspicious circumstances of Kinseys deathare hastily swept away, often with anticlimactic resolutions. Given those flaws and a surprise cliffhanger ending, this launch is likely to alienate more readers than it draws in. (BookLife)
