You know how you hear those stories about once abused kids growing up and overcoming the difficult life they have been dealt and becoming majorly successful like FBI agents or lawyers or something cool like that and never having any lingering problems?

Well this isn't one of those stories.

I used to know how my life as going to be, how I was going to live out my lifeless days, unloved and fearful. Hopeless to the possibility that life, my life could be anything better than what it is now. I knew that I would either give up, or give in, either one would eventually being the end of me and I didn't think that was so bad. I would no longer be constantly reminded that I was shit, and would be shit no matter how hard I tried in life. I thought it was all easier to just slip away.

But that was before....

Where do you start with a book like this? Jeri Williams blew me away with this novel, and I seriously cannot wait for Hurt Me to come out. This is not a novel for weak; if you have any sort of triggers, I would not recommend this book. If you have a thing for tough backgrounds, tough love, and overcoming that part of you life, by all means - GRAB. THIS. BOOK.

Harley has never known the love from another human being. At the age of seven her mother began hating her - in the worse way possible. If anyone as so much attempts to touch her, she flinches. A raised voice has her running the other direction. Being dubbed the town slut - partially from her own doing - she does everything she can to stick to herself. This includes endless hours of reading the romance novels she so wishes she could run away into. Working at the local bookstore helps her escape for a short while from her Monster, but it never lasts long. When she meets bad boy Deklan, her world falls apart in the best way possible...

Deklan is a sleep with them, and ditch them kind of guy. There isn't a gal he won't screw, and he admits it more than anyone else in the world. When he returns home for a very saddening reason, the last thing he intended to do was to fall for a girl that plays hard to get. Deklan is your typical bad boy; has the bad boy looks, a rough demeanor, and has had a rough past himself. But none of that stops him from showing up, and being there for his family (those that want him there) when they need to be. When he accidentally meets Harley, his life unravels, and he is determined to take care of her...

This was a great read. I was intrigued the entire time I read it, and honestly, I didn't want to set it down. Like I said above, it can have some rather detrimental triggers for people that have gone through a tough past life. Jeri did a wonderful job with the characters. I, as the reader, could feel the passion between Harley, and Deklan. The fireworks show that exploded after their initial encounter was phenomenal!

A definite must read! Congratulations to Jeri Williams on a wonderful book! 

His breathing.

My heart.

His breathing.

My heart.

I tried to step back again, and found myself up against the side of the building, the coldness of it hitting my back. Dammit! 

"Harley," he moved his thumb and caressed my bottom lip. His eyes fell to my mouth and he licked his lips, and that was it. I got goose bumps all over, as I flattened my back against the wall I looked into his eyes, now a gun metal color and watched as he searched my face. He shouldn't be allowed to look at a woman like this. 

"What are you hiding?" Those words caused my slamming heart to stop. How could he know I was hiding, when not even Ember knew? I was trying to tell myself he didn’t, it was just a ploy for someone like him to get what he wanted. But deep down, I knew he knew.

"I...I...I don't know what..."

He took a deep breath and closed the already small gap between our bodies. I put my hands up to stop him, and came into contact with his rock hard abdomen. Shit, those couldn’t be real. I wanted to move my hand further and feel what I knew would be a six pack, if not eight. That was the wrong thing to touch if I wanted to stop him. 

"Just a taste..." His grip on my face tightened slightly as he pulled me toward his lips, the heat coming off him felt amazing, it instantly made my vaginal walls tighten and moisture to dampen my panties. I had been waiting 23 years for this kiss, to feel lips on mine. I moved my hands to his side and gripped the sides of his shirt blazingly pulling him closer, I wanted this, I didn’t care that he was a stranger, a customer and that I didn’t even know his name. I. Was. Ready.

He must have taken my actions as a go-ahead and he slowly leaned down bringing our mouths closer. I closed my eyes because that’s what they did in all my books and waited for his lips to touch mine.

"Harley, is that you?" A voice I knew and hated right now called out.

Seriously?! Great fucking timing Ember. I heard him make the sexiest noise I have ever heard as he braced his hand against the wall and leaned down, his lips brushing my ear.

“I smell you. Fuck, you smell amazing.” His voice came out leathery.

If I wasn’t leaning against a wall, I would have fainted epically right there. I was one hundred and thirty-five percent sure he wasn’t talking about my deodorant and it made my panties moisten more.
Jeri Williams lives a super fabulous lifestyle (by fabulous, she mean’s kinda lame) in the hot Florida sun and loves reading of any kind (except instruction manuals and cereal boxes). She has always written stories and made her family listen to them since she was young, although this is her first book she has ever published. She is a mom of an up-and-coming Jerry Seinfeld (in girl form) and also enjoys being right and knowing everything, although she is hardly ever right and really doesn't know anything and is obsessed with inventing miniature zoo animals you can carry around in your pocket (although not really).
