Release date: September 2013

**This story was inspired by true events. If you liked the movie "Sleeping With the Enemy", then you might like this story too. CONTENT WARNING: Violence, foul language, and adult situations. Not meant for younger readers.**

A ROMANTIC SUSPENSE NOVEL. No one knew a woman lived there or that she even existed. A monster, living in darkness...


At twenty-six, Nicole doesn't even look human anymore. The beast made sure of that. So she hides. A monster consigned to a life of fear and solitude. This is all she deserves, she is quite sure of that.
And then one day out of the blue, the autographed baseball caught by Brian Jensen at the latest Marlins game enters her prison and manages to turn her world completely upside down.
Temptation comes in the form of pity at first, and then perhaps something more.
Does she dare to believe the things she's told, that this is not the life she was meant to live? That being a monster is not her forever-fate? And will she be willing to risk everything, to reach out and accept the helping hands around her? She knows only too well that hands can hurt. Finding out whether they can also heal is a risky proposition, especially when the beast is still out there. Looking for her.

My Review:
I read this book in an afternoon. Each chapter ended in such a way I had to keep reading to find out what happened next.
I was literally hanging on the edge of my seat. This was a very emotional read for me, but a really good one as well.
The author got the point across without delving too deeply which I am glad for, although it still made me cry.
Spoiler Alert *this book will make you cry*

This is the first book I have read by Elle Casey but if it is any indication to the rest of her books I will be reading them all. I have to say I am now looking forward to checking out her NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller, Shine Not Burn.
