Summary

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.

Contains mature themes.

It's alright kinda meh but somehow addictive

it's ok the overall story is overdone but I listened to it all the way through it is strangely addictive I wanted to find out the ending but it's part of a series maybe it'll get better as it goes on but doubt I'll bother after this.

Captivating!

**update - audiobook just released and I still LOVE this one just as much as I did back in 2018!!! 🖤

WOW!! Where do I begin?? The blurb caught me and the book didn't let me go. Starting a new book by an author you know and love is easy. Starting a new book by a new author, an Indie author at that, is a bit hard. With so many books out here that I want to read, picking up a new book especially by an Indie author was probably the best and worst thing I could have done two days ago. The best because I truly don't believe this is Jessica Ruben's debut novel. It's truly mesmerizing from the first page to the last page. Kudos!! Eve and Vincent's story is captivating. The author has this magic about her writing that just pulls you in and you start craving her written word more and more the more pages you read. And that ending! Balls to the Wall. What did this author do to me. I literally dropped my kindle & was like what??!!?! This is how you do me. I invested my time and you ended it like this. I warned you. I mentioned it was the worst thing I could have done, remember?!?! You simple crave more. This ending, WOW!!! GIVE ME MORE!!! The worst is the wait!! Please Jessica Ruben give us more, and SOON!!!

Sound the alarms. “I love how delicate you are. Soft. You’re a siren on a quiet street. You’re all I hear.” #Swoon

You love a sexy, demanding Alpha male mixed in with a heroine you can't help but to fall in love with, this is the story for you. Move this to the top of your list!!! It's full of everything. The suspense, the angst, all the emotions this book is full of it. Jessica Ruben, you have gained a long time fan. I can't wait to see what's to come. Authors watch out, there's an upcoming RISING Star among you!!
