Crystal Cierlak is an American author born and raised in California. In her two year publication history Crystal has released 10 titles among three original series, including "Zoe Thanatos", a sci-fi romance set in an alternate universe called Terra; "The Romance of Nick and Layla", a 5-part (part 6 coming soon) series about the dysfunctional marriage of a pop star and the woman he married in secret; and "Bidden", a (now) three-part series of novellas about a young woman who puts herself up for auction to the highest bidder for a night of steamy romance, all so she can pay her crippling student loans.

Crystal Cierlak is on page 262 of 320 of Red Queen: Really liking the story so far. It seemed to start off very similarly to The Hunger Games, but then veered off into something new. Can't wait to finish!

Nothing special here

There is nothing you will read here that you couldn't find written better by a more talented writer elsewhere. There is no need for this to be a series. There is nothing to invest yourself or your time in.

“I don’t know what it is that comes over me, but suddenly I’m crossing to his side of the table and sitting down in his lap, arms wrapping around his neck. His lips are soft against mine, and when I part them he tenderly obliges, tasting me delicately. His fingers prod at my back, never going further than the small indent at the base of the spine, and it’s all very lovely and nice.

“I think I could get used to you,” I say, looking down into his beautiful brown eyes, deep like the color of autumn.
(From "Undone, The Romance of Nick and Layla [Part 5"]).”

“And yet … marriage seems to be the worst thing to happen to me. Though there are days I would argue that that wasn’t true at all, and that the worst thing to happen to me is Nick Hudson. Not that picking one definitive answer would change the outcome. Nothing can change that now. Nothing dead can be brought back to life, literally or otherwise.”
