Product description

Product Description

Have you ever sunk inside yourself to a place of darkness so deep you couldn’t see the light? Had no hope? Felt completely alone in a world filled with so many people?

I have. I’ve lived it, breathed it.

Why?

Because life hated me.

It disliked me from the moment of conception, despised me when I was born, loathed me when I bounced from each foster home, and kicked me in the gut when I watched the one thing that meant everything to me leave.

For years, I drifted, unable to find my footing, never knowing what the word stable meant. Then a single moment in time rocked me to my core, changing me and making that solid ground I so desperately craved crumble at my feet, causing me to fall farther than I’d ever imagined.

The darkness of the swirling tornado that is depression captured me, pulling me down to its depths, drowning me, suffocating me, owning me.

A depth so deep, I didn’t think I’d survive and didn’t care if I did. I only wanted peace. I wanted the pain to disappear. I wanted to be … free.

Needing to fall into the cyclone of darkness was the only way I could find the light.

This is the first time reading anything by Ryan Michele and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this great story. The author takes us the readers on an emotional journey which is full of pain, and some terrible heartache, this story will grab a hold of you and pull you into the pages from start to finish. Its an intense story that will have you feeling sad, mad, scared, and happy sometime,worry, and so much more. There was times that I wanted to put my tablet up and stop reading this story because I wouldn't believe what was happening . How can someone believe that life hate them . But how can people think no matter what they do nothing is ever good enough. But then you finally have something good your life and then it's taken from them all over again. This is Reign's life and her story, Reign hasn't had a easy life ,she's been abused ,abandoned , and been living on the street ,totally has no friends. The pain that is poor girl has been through will have your heart breaking for her. All I wanted to do through this whole story was hug Reign and wanted to yell at the injustice that this poor girl went through. In the end she hit rock bottom ,but the reason why will totally surprise you. Now Reign will have to learn how to pull herself back together again,can she do it ? But is she strong enough to do it or not ? The amazing transformation that Reign goes through is so touching it will have you tearing up for her.

I - well, honestly there are no words. This isn't the usual biker story that I'm used to from Ryan, but that isn't a bad thing.

In fact, it is quite the opposite.

This is a journey.

It will bring you to tears, and surprise you.

I don't want to say to much, as i'm afraid I wont be able to not ruin anything, but the sheer emotion of this book is heart stopping.

you MUST read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING Jan. 25 2016
By Neringa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Damn. That was... I really can't find words to describe, what this story made me to feel. It really is something different from others Ryan's books. It's not your typical romance. It has a deeper meaning. It's about trying to finding yourself. Finding your strength to find happiness. Even though, life given you the hardest experiences. Finding your strength, even when you think there is nothing worth fighting for. When you believe that you are all alone.

The way the story begins.... I was so over the place. I wanted to cry and rant, and scream. It was just the few pages in the story and I already felt all of it. And much much more.

It was so emotional story. Reaching tender aspects of life. Of pain. Of torment. Of brokenness. Of choices. Of giving up or fighting to your last strength. But fighting for what? To continue living with the pain? With the hole in your soul, that you just know there is no way to heal? Every person you meet let you down. They always leaving you bleeding on the floor, without looking back. There's no happiness. There's no hope.

What I just said is just touching tip of the iceberg. The things heroine, Reign, gone through and still living with... I cried with her, I hurt with her, I bleed with her. I was there, when she hit rock bottom. I felt every little emotion she was through.

You had to know I never was in any way related with a person, who has depression, PTSD or other. So, when I'm reading something deep as this story, I always am... Thorn? On one way I feel the pain of the character with every step they take. On the other thought, it's seems so easy to fight for your happiness. Right? Wrong? Or maybe there isn't right or wrong in this situation. No matter how you look at it, no matter what you think, you would do in this situation, you would never know, until you are there to make the decision. But let's hope, that never comes to it.

I honestly can say, I was disappointed in Reign. Maybe disappointed isn't the right word. It just, when I was taking every step with her I felt beaten. It made me for the first time in my life to understand just a little, how helpless person can feel. You wanna stretch out your heand to help. But you can't. All you can do is just sit and watch a train wreck to happen.

Also at the same time I felt so proud of Reign. She was beaten. She was crushed. But she still struggled to stand up and live. It may be not the life you think she or human to should have, but it was something. Something not to give up completely.

And she was lucky. Reign may through her life meet the worst of the human kind, but she also meet someone special. It may be just one person at the beginning. But it's enough for just one person to catch you, when you need to fall.

There is characters that will make your skin to crawl. And there is character that will outweigh the bad ones. They will make you smile and impress you, with they endless support. And it makes you wish there will be more of them in real life. Because let's face the fact those kind of people is like a rare diamond.

One of those people was Lynx. Oh, man. That man stole my heart. And I don't want it back. He can keep it. Because I know it's in the safe hand. You will love him. You will worship him.

I don't know what more I could say. Whatever I would mention, it wouldn't be enough. It's one of those moments, when you need to personally experience it, to fully understand the emotions behind this bittersweet story.

This book was phenomenally done. I can't even being to state what all this story entailed. It will have you laughing, crying, hugging a pillow and sitting in a corner rocking back and forth. The powerful emotions discussed are unlike anything I've read before. She does a stellar job of pulling in your darkest depths and delivering you on the other side.
This story is not your traditional love story. It touches on fears, doubts, and self worth in a way that will leave you so raw from the emotional toll.
Reign is a girl that just hasn't had the best life has to offer. When she reaches rock bottom, her friend is there to force her hand. Not given a choice, she must fight the demons from within to overpower them and come out winning. I think if you haven't been in the shoes of her before, that this paints an accurate picture as to what she is feeling on the inside. So much is in her head, but that's true, when you are depressed, PTSD, suicidal it is in your head. Showing that side was brilliant. It may seem chaotic or mundane to some but it paint the picture that some may want to say just snap out of it, but it's not that simple.
Lynx - Well isn't he just a hunk and a half. Didn't expect him to come in to this story, but the way he did it brought some light into Reign.
I really wasn't sure how this would end. I struggled with the thought that there would be a hindered codependency between them but Ryan made it flow and work. It was great to see some old faves from her MC series make an appearance.

I don't know where to start my review, but this book will pull you in, take you on a ride and let you off in a position to be truly mesmerized by the writing brilliance of Ryan Michele.

There is serious subject matter covered and may be triggers for some people but if you have ever dealt with depression, contemplated suicide or know anyone that has this book will touch something deep down inside of you. "For once, it was under my control. This was the one tool I could use to make everything stop, to make everything go away, to make me go away. It was the answer to the end the pain."

There comes a time when you either need to make the pain go away or ask for help and Reign was dealt a life where she felt alone and that no one would help her. "I was drowning in darkness and losing what little I thought of myself." The flashbacks, dreams and memories are so vivid that you feel like you are there with Reign.

"I needed it all to end. I wanted to disappear, vanish, leave this life, not feel anything anymore, make everything whirling in my head stop and quiet. I needed to fall."

Reign met Lynx when she was in therapy and was diagnosed with PTSD. "So how I feel is I'm in a big, black void of thick, sticky tar. I've always been in it, unable to get above the surface as it keep pulling me in." Reign starts learning that she can take control of her life and that knowledge in her situation is power.

"Happiness isn't something you've had much of, but its out there, and you need to find it, hold on to it, and embrace it. Don't turn or push it away."

Reign and Lynx's story is one that is not "conventional" on it's face but it is real, it is genuine and it is one that will blossom and grow into something beautiful. "Babe, you'll be just fine. I'm not gonna let you fall."

5.0 out of 5 stars 5+ Star .. a MUST read Jan. 25 2016
By DMHoltry of Wicked Tales of Racy Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was captivated by the roller coaster of feelings and emotions that Ryan Michele was able to portray through the characters of both Reign and Lynx. She has given us a story about a girl, Reign, who has suffered through a devastating past, time and time again, that involved twists, turns and heartaches overflowing. Due to the author's ability to make me, the reader, feel as though I was watching it all play out right in front of me, I was emotionally vested in the book from the beginning and could NOT put this book down. A LOT of issues were addressed in the book and each one is a reality in today's world for more people than we know. So thank you Ryan Michele for giving me an amazing book to read, for opening the eyes of readers to the issues that people suffering with PTSD face.
5.0 out of 5 stars I fell hard for this book Jan. 26 2016

The author was kind enough to ask me to read this and I said I would give an honest review.

For the record, although Ryan had warned me that this wasn't like her other books (meaning NOT like the MC series I love and adore), I still thought it would be Alpha heavy. Boy was I wrong.

We are warned that this is a dark read due to the subject matter, but don't let that deter you from reading about Reign and Lynx. I loved how this story was told and how this story wasn't about an Alpha male and his woman, but more about a woman coming to terms with her past and allowing love in instead of holding it, and everyone at bay.

We see Reign hit rock bottom and fight her way out with the help of her best friend, her therapist, a nurse, and Lynx. I cried for both Reign and Lynx as they both fought their demons both apart and together. It made the story much more beautiful for me. There are twists and turns and a surprise or two and when the story ended, I was upset because I didn't want their story to end.

Make sure you've got tissues at the ready and prepare yourself, it's heavy on the heart and the tears and well worth it.

Thank you Ryan Michele for sharing this story and releasing a copy to me early
