~ Prologue ~
Unable to escape.
Whether I am driving in my car or at work, my mind continues to return to my dreamlike world; a place where all fantasies can come true, a place to escape from reality. My reality, unlike most, is unusual. I have a gift, or at least that is what my parents call it. Sometimes I see things before they happen. Oh and I can see someone’s inner thoughts when I touch them. But those aren’t the only reasons I feel the need to escape. It feels like something or someone is missing from my life. In my world, I can be anything and anyone. More importantly, he’s there, my true love… making it hard to focus on reality.
~ Excerpt ~
We were sitting on the porch enjoying the night air when he started telling me that they are going on the road and he has to leave tomorrow.
Saddened by the news I asked, “What time tomorrow?”
“About three.” He paused as if dreading the moment. “Listen, Natalia, I know we’ve been putting off this conversation for a while but I don’t think it can wait any longer.” He took my hands in his. “I think it’s best that I leave tonight. I won’t be staying.” Releasing me, he went into the house, and to the bedroom to grab his clothes.
I couldn’t believe my ears – he’s leaving me. Running to catch up to him, I asked, “Why?” He started putting his clothes in his duffel bag so I start unpacking his clothes. As he packed, I unpacked. I don’t want him to leave. “Why can’t you stay tonight?”
He grabbed my hands and sat me down on the bed. “If I’m not with you, then Anthony has no reason to come after you. There has been a lot of talk going around. He is angry I replaced him so quickly. He will probably follow me out of town. When he catches up to me I’ll be ready.”
Stunned, I remembered when Anthony was here. With or without Bradley in my life Anthony would be back. It was me he wanted, not Bradley. Hurting him was just an added bonus. Bradley was playing right into his hands.
He repacked the clothes I took out and threw on the bed. “How can we be together when you live there and I live here? Plus, I’ll be on tour in New York. You deserve better than a long distance relationship. Honestly, I should’ve never allowed this to happen. It was bound to end this way.”
~ Review by Venture ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Natalia is very introverted and doesn’t make friends easily. She goes on vacation and literally runs into new friends. She also meets a “man of her dreams”. Bradley says all the right things and she is not looking forward to her vacation being over. His friend starts to start problems and they need to work through obstacles to move forward in their relationship.
This is one of the most interesting books I have read recently. The paranormal aspects with the loveable characters make it a must read. I can’t wait until the next book! I give this 5 books.
