Since I was old enough to understand I knew I was worthless. A girl child when my powerful politician of a mother prayed for a boy. Someone to mold in her image. I stayed out of her way, until I couldn’t, and she made me regret every stumble, every misstep, every breath.
Like clockwork, she paid off doctors to drag me into a mental hospital at her most crucial career moments. I rotted behind cinderblock walls for six months at a time. It became my life…until I met him.
Ash. A one night stand in the back seat of his car turns into my only solace while locked away. He pretends I’m just another patient, until I force him to see me…the woman…Kory…someone who needs him more than anyone else.
My mother is a monster. I’m nothing more than a pawn. But Ash…he’s my salvation.
Hades and Persephone like you’ve never seen them. This is magic, this is menace, this is myth…with a dark twist.
I was given this book by the author for my honest opinion
When six months of the year Kory’s mom puts her up into a mental institution so that she isn’t in the way during her political campaign. One thing Kory’s mom never figured was that the doctor would actually look into her daughters past and figure out that there was really nothing wrong with her and there’s no reason she need to be mentally instituted. Until Ash came along he was a doctor that was going to look into all of his patients passed and try to figure out the real reason why all the past doctors would allow this to happen. It didn’t matter to him that Kory’s mom was famous political personnel running for presidential office and had paid all the doctors to basically babysit her daughter. He was going to do what his rights were to make it his patient and get her out of the mental institution. But things seem to get tricky when lust fogs both Kory and Ash’s mine and they start falling for each other things get tricky and some might have to sell their soul to the devil. It’s over it was very enjoyable book not as dark as I thought it was going to be, but I really enjoyed it and it was pretty quick read.
