Title~SNAP Genre~Psychological Suspense (With some romance) Author~Tara Dawn Cover Designer~RMGraphx
Hazel I never would've guessed my life would lead me where I am today, wedged between a stalker and a stranger in the midst of a drug war that I'm unsure of how I entered. One wants to hurt me, the other seems to want to heal me, but there's more that he's after and I don't know if I can give him what he seeks.Cash I was sent to find answers when no one else could find them. What I found was a woman in need and a psycho dealer working toward his own agenda. I wasn't to get involved, but her eyes call to me and I know they hold the information I seek. Phil She doesn't think I'm good enough for her. But I'll show her. Hazel belongs to me and has since that night that I claimed her. I'll get back into her good graces. I have to. She has something of mine and I'm not stopping until I have it all.
This book...I mean...WOW! I have so many feelings on this. You get pulled into the book from the very first line. I read this book in about 2 days. I could not put it down! I really like Hazel. She is strong and works hard, plus she keeps her apartment a mess and I can totally understand that. Who has time to clean these days. I bring this up because I feel like Tara did a great job making this story realistic. I grew up in a small town in the south and the description of this town reminded me so much of that town. So realistic. I can honestly say that I hated Phil from the beginning and I was so glad when she dumped him. I have so many mixed feelings on Cash. I want to totally love him but I have so many more questions.
Tara Dawn has left me sitting here going, WHAT THE HELL??!!??? I love a good cliffhanger and Tara Dawn delivered. I can't wait for the next book to come out. I am giving this book 4.8 stars out of 5. Go get it and get started. I promise you won't be disappointed. I literally had dreams about this book. So good!!!
~What readers are saying~
"SNAP is an amazing story. Tara has such a way with words. One minute she has you craving a fountain pop like you never have before, then she has you feeling every emotion like you are the character. Every laugh makes you laugh. Every tear will bring one to your eye. Every ounce of pain, you feel, and every second of pleasure will have you squirming. By the end, my heart was pounding and I had tears in my eyes. Great book." -Amie Nichols ~ Author of Amazon Bestseller Deep Blue"Snap by Tara Dawn is a brilliant and hauntingly beautiful read from beginning to end. You're instantly captivated and at the end you're left wanting more. Snap is a roller coaster of emotions, but you'll enjoy the ride." -Laura ~ The Literary Vixen
She stands there for a moment staring at the ground, her shaky hands twisting together.
"Do not make me do it for you, Hazel."
Slowly she unbuttons and unzips her pants. I love that sound. She pushes them down and steps out on unsteady legs. Her hands go the hem of her shirt and grip it so tightly her fingers start turning white. Taking a shuddering breath, she pulls it over her head and drops it to the floor. Her bra and panties are awfully nice for going to work in. She must have worn them for him. Anger scorches my veins at how little she thought of me on our date. She didn't wear anything like this for me. I admire her body in her pretty underthings wishing I had seen the bruises that formed by my hand. As I get to her stomach, my eyes grow wide and a smile spreads over my face. Tiny pink streaks trail down where my fingers once raked her skin. If I thought my dick wouldn't work for a while after she nailed it, I was wrong.
"Take those off too. He's not here to see them."
Against her wishes, I make her shower. She tries to close the curtain, but I pull it open. Shivering beneath the water, she washes her body and tries to hide as much of herself as she can. The suds on her slick flesh make me ache to pinch each and every one until they pop. An image of blood oozing out of every bubble as it bursts has my heart pounding in anticipation of what's to come. Unable to wait any longer, I shut the water off and yank her from the tub. She slips out and lands against me, the water on her body soaking into my clothes.
Without a second thought, I pull her into her bedroom and shove her onto the bed. Looking around, I spot some scarves on top of her dresser and grab them. I attempt to grab her wrists, but she fights me and scoots away on the bed. The word no slips from her lips. My vision blurs as I grow more furious. I hate the word no. I despise being told no. Before I know what's happening, my emotions get the better of me and my fist strikes her face. There's an audible pop and blood gushes from her nose. It makes me think of the bleeding bubbles.
Her hand covers her face as she chokes on her sobs and the blood. It seeps through her fingers dripping on her chest in slow motion. Each drop exploding as it lands on her skin. My darkness, her life. The perfect mix of truth in my world.
