I've spent my life cultivating a certain perception.
Evil incarnate. Homicidal hermit.
Fear equals power, and power equals safety.
Keeps people at bay.
Except one, who dives in without knowing the depths of my waters.
She consumes me, an ocean of light I want to drown in.
Now I'm not sure how to let her go.
I've spent most of my life cultivating a certain persona.
Town tart. Unhinged party girl.
Sex equals power, and power equals safety.
Keeps people from getting too close.
Except one, whose darkness ebbs around me, seeks to steal my soul.
He devours me, a monster I can't seem to escape.
Now I'm not sure I even want to.
Sweet Solitude is a dark, enemies-to-lovers, steamy small town romance with mafia elements and lots of angst. If you are not a reader of this genre, this book may not be suitable for you, as it is not recommended for those who might have certain triggers. Reader discretion advised.
Book 2 in the King's Trace Antiheroes series - while Sweet Solitude can be read as a standalone, it's highly recommended, but not required, to read the first book, Sweet Surrender, before to enhance your experience.
