Katrina is a nurse in a psychiatric hospital. She goes about her day helping the doctors help the patients. She notices things are off, but she just ignores them, even when those things are about herself. Cherry is a photojournalist who wants to travel the world, take pictures of famous men, and sleep with them. The rougher the sex, the more she likes it. Anisa is a spy for the government. She will use her vast abilities to take out her targets; the perfect soldier. What do these three women hav ...more

Katrina Novak lets us know what she looks like – a self-observation. It was certainly an interesting way to start this story. She works in a very sad place. Even though she likes her job, you still feel sorry for her. Cherry Cummins has a freelance job that makes me envious. Anisa Grant is a woman with no feelings. It’s interesting to see how dissimilar these women are.

I found it a good thing that each chapter lets you know which character is doing the talking. There are so many twists and turns

Have you ever picked a book to read but weren't expecting anything great? Maybe it was in a genre you liked but the author wasn't anyone you had heard about. You just wanted to try someone and something new…and then you were blown away by it! That is exactly what happened to me when I read Girl Within Girl by S.P. Aruna. This book is awesome. I don’t want to give away any spoilers because part of the beauty of Girl Within Girl is in the deft way S.P. Aruna unfolds the story. This is the first bo ...more
Book Review originally published here:

Girl Within Girl is an intriguing, dark, erotic read about a woman sharing her mind with many other women. Katrina is never alone in her mind. She’s managed to keep the other personalities at bay, or at least from the center stage for most of her life, but now she’s unraveling, and fast. Her sole hope is Dr. Sean Paisley, a handsome doctor, and the only one who can make her whole again.

The book was a fast read, but an

Girl Within Girl is a fascinating, erotic, dark romance with shades of psychological thriller. It is deliciously deceptive and will keep you wondering what the heck you just read. From the first page, this fast-paced, entertaining read kept me turning pages until the end. Katrina is mesmerizing as she fights to manage her many personalities and maintain her sanity. Dr. Paisley is her last hope. Aruna clearly took great care in writing this book with a quite realistic portrayal of madness and per ...more

This was erotica of a different color. An exciting thriller with hot sex, written with a fast paced narrative that kept me pushing the advance button on my Kindle. The various POV's were well-crafted and the characters come alive in your mind. As for romance, it's a bit underplayed but it's definitely brewing between our heroines and the handsome, dedicated and compassionate young Doctor Sean Paisley, and this is something I expect to see develop in the next book of the series. I also got the im ...more

I had a hard time with this book. I enjoy psychological thrillers and romances immensely and I just don't think I connected well with this book. It was well written with characters that certainly capture a readers attention. I just didn't enjoy some aspects of the book, but I can't say I hated the book. I did like when it got interesting. And I am compelled to want to read the next book. This is a great book for all who enjoy dark erotic thrillers. ...more

A good twist on the usual split personality story which made interesting reading, my only complaint, hence the four stars rather than five was the ending, no real resolution although perhaps open for a sequel - hopefully.

Wow! Holy mother of...! I truly enjoyed every edge of your seat moment of Girl Within Girl! When I began reading this book I was expecting something quite diffrent than what I experience. The author did a fabulous job with the twist she put in this storyline. It's not your typical Erotic Thriller at all. I was blown away and kept glued to the pages from beginning to end. I must say Anisa is by far my favorite of all the "characters." She's stong, sexy, kinky and all around a kick ass chick and t ...more

Simply superb!

Aruna writes a tale about Katrina, who has DiD or multiple personalities. Each personality is unique and different, and helps Katrina experience different aspects life. The story is very well written, and the reader does not get lost, especially when figuring out which personality is present. The story has erotic and steamy scenes, and also contains a lot of adventure and exciting action, all the while Katrina tries to keep herself together. A great story and very highly recommende

I'm honored - I've been chosen to be among the Top Ten Indie Authors of 2018 at Amy Shannon's website.

Actually, writing was an experiment for me, one that I'm putting on hold indefinitely (maybe forever). I'm more of a reader these days, but too lazy to create another profile (as reader).
