Darkest Perception (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 23, 2018 10:13AM
Description: I was young, innocent, and looking to start my career in psychology. However, it turned out I was in the wrong class, with the wrong professor, at the wrong time. One decision to become an apprentice changed my entire life. After being left with nothing, including my true identity, money, family, and friends, I was evicted from my apartment. I knew I'd have to run and hide while struggling with starvation, but then a shady job offer became an appealing option in the midst of my desperation. I was fully aware of the risks involved, but I'm well versed in reading people and assuming their intentions. Therefore, I was confident I wouldn't end up being that woman who ran into a trap, decorated with luxurious accommodations and high-class amenities. I also wasn't the type to reach for bait disguised as a gorgeous man with lust pooling in his eyes. As it turns out, though ... I was wrong about everything--almost everything. I fell into the rabbit hole where nothing was as it seemed from the outside, and I had no clue I was the puppeteer of it all.

Shari Ryan Have you added Last Words to your TBR yet? Just a little over two weeks until release! I can't wait to share this one with you guys <3.


Last Words by Shari J. Ryan Last Words <-- Add Book ;)

Last Words, where Non-Fiction meets Fiction, and the lines in between are blurred by forbidden love.
 
Amelia - 1942:
 
The inside of my closet held the last bit of my freedom before I was torn from my home and shoved onto a dark train.
 
Our destination was even darker. “Women and children to the right. Men to the left,” they shouted at us.
 
Everything was taken from me, leaving only the smoke filled air, piercing screams, and soul-burning cries.
 
I was slowly starved and weakened to the bone, but there was a man—a Nazi—who brought me extra food. He called himself a prisoner too, but he scared me, and I wondered if he was the enemy I should fear the most.
 
Emma - Current Day:
 
My grandmother hid her past in an old diary under her bed. The tattered, brown leather book sat there for years until she asked me to find it and read her unspoken words. Now, her stories and secrets are consuming every moment of my life.
 
She’s dying ... and asking for a man no one in our family has ever heard of.
 
I never imagined a hand-written book could change my entire life, but it has. It opened my eyes to a new beginning, and I learned that love is not the unsaid word my grandmother has refused to speak. It’s an action—it’s longevity, taboo and sometimes forbidden. Do we fight for what’s wrong, or do we spend our lives searching for what’s right?
 
Last words were never spoken because love doesn’t stop until a heart is no longer beating.


MELISSA *Mel Reader* Thanks for the friend vite Shari! :))
