Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Contemporary Romance
In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks.
Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness.
But that’s the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out.
It’s been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I’ve tasted retribution and crave more of it.
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free.
The plan is perfect, except for her. The one woman I’m forbidden to have, whose soothing touch settles my fractured mind. My angel of mercy sent to silence the voices. Yet, not even she can save me from the black void wherein my skeletons lie buried beneath the truth. Because in order to feed my thirst for revenge, I have to destroy the very thing that gives me purpose.
Tooth for a tooth, heart for a heart.

It was Nietzsche who said, ‘Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings—always darker, emptier and simpler.’
If I lived on emotions alone, I wouldn’t be faced with the task of ruining the one thing alluring enough to save me. The single frayed thread somehow tethering me to a world I no longer gave a shit about. Because the hell of it was, Sera had crawled beneath my skin and set me aflame. Something about that kiss in the library had unhinged me, was all I could think about, along with the taste of her still lingering on my tongue. I craved more of it. More of her.
And it pissed me off.
For the first time in a long time, I’d begun to feel something again, a stirring in my chest that ached every time I looked at her beautiful fucking face, a tightness in my muscles when I thought of someone else so much as touching her, and a realization of the hundreds of times a day I thought about her, that I couldn’t stop thinking about her. Some might’ve called it lust, or obsession. Except, the sickness I’d become infected with ran much deeper than the surface—like venom seeping into my brain and taking command of my body. Telling me to walk away from everything, forget the pain, screw the plan, and spare her life. Something akin to empathy, but to feel empathy, a person would have to know love.
What the fuck did I know of love? Only times I’d come close to it, fate had stepped in with other plans.
I lay back in bed, the darkness of the room settling over me, as the day gave way to night. I’d watched the clock for the last hour, praying I’d slip into another dimension, one where time stood still and I wasn’t tasked with the impossible mission of annihilating the only fragment left of my humanity.
Wasn’t that the way of it, though? A person could spend their life searching for some shred of meaning, some reason to explain why they were still alive, only to find it in a woman they’d vowed to destroy.
