Publisher's Summary

Everything done in darkness will eventually be brought into the light. I ran, but all it did was keep me one step ahead of my past. I tried to start over; new name, new identity. But you can't change your soul. A fresh start at college was just what I needed. For a while, it worked. I was the party girl, the one who seemed confident, but it was a lie. When guys kissed me - I felt only pain. When they touched me - nothing but fear. Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone who will see you as their world. But the truth? I was the beast. And as much as I wanted redemption, I wasn't fool enough to think I'd ever get it.
Until he walked into my life. I wasn't prepared to fall for someone. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me peace, he offered me security. I should have known it was just another lie - I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea. But I was powerless to stop myself from falling. And he was powerless to catch me. Because the darkness finally caught up to me, and as fate would have it, a cruel twist almost bled me dry. But I'm stronger than I knew. I'm stronger than you think. You think you know my story, but you don't - after all everyone has Shame in their lives - and I'm no longer afraid to show you mine.

A Tale Of Forbidden Love And A Twisted, Dark Obsession

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! The narration was great and the story was dark and suspenseful. If you've read the earlier books in this series, you won't want to meet this one. It has a darker feel than the earlier books but Van Dyken never fails to deliver a compelling story with captivating characters.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the suspenseful storyline.

Which scene was your favorite?

The night of the masquerade ball when Lisa and Tristan don't know each other's identity.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene when Lisa sees herself being raped.
