Blurb:  One kiss can change everything.

One month ago I was admitted to a psych ward. Yesterday, Lachlan told me I’m losing my mind. But I know what I saw. Will you believe me?

Behind the walls of a mental hospital, Naomi Carradine feels her world breaking to pieces. She’s starting to believe all the voices questioning her sanity. Only visitors from the outside world keep her tethered to reality. But deep in her thoughts, Naomi is haunted by memories of a golden summer that twisted into a waking nightmare of obsessive love and fractured truths.

Just home from college, Naomi moves in with her best friend, Lana, the daughter of a Virginia senator. At a lavish party thrown by Lana’s father, Naomi meets a sexy stockbroker named Max and finds herself unable to resist his charms. One fiery kiss and she’s going back for more, beginning a terrifying descent. After Naomi witnesses the unspeakable, she has only one hope of escape: unraveling the devastating secrets of her past.

Review: Wow.  Just… wow.  This was intense, crazy, twisted, dark and ugly.  Not typically the style of book I enjoy as it is really dark, but this was just incredibly written.  The story is one of those that once you pick it up, you aren’t going to want to put it down because you are going to want to know how it resolves.

At the point where we get the first critical information reveal, I was beginning to form an idea of where this might go.  The farther into the book I got, the more I though it was possible.  It took me until the very end to realize that I was wrong and that I couldn’t have predicted what was going to happen.

This is just an excellently written book.  I will say that this book may not be a good choice for people that have potential trigger issues.
