YOLO

Yolo

You only live once. It’s been my motto. I’ve been using it far longer than most. I’m a little surprised how well it’s caught on. I’ll explain.

Last night around midnight, I strolled into this lonely bar at the edge of town looking fantastic in my little black dress.

I always do.

I sat by myself at one end of the bar, sipped a glass of whiskey, and waited. I’ll admit I was a bit impatient as I hadn’t had any in a few days. I hoped someone would come soon.

When he walked in, I began to sweat a little. I know my type, and this always happens right before. I sometimes have a hard time containing the excitement.

It didn’t take long for his eyes to catch mine. Then we began the dance.

I was presented with a glass of whiskey I didn’t purchase. “From the guy at the other end of the bar,” the barman said.

He walked over and we began small talk. After a few hours, the barman announced last call, and he offered to drive me home.

A few miles down the road, he stopped and pulled the car over. I knew what was coming next.

“Life is about taking risks,” he said as he moved in for a kiss.

“You only live once,” I whispered in his ear.

I felt him tense up as I bit down on the flesh of his neck. He let out a scream.

After I finished up, I exited the car and began walking down the road.

Another night, another truth.

You do only live once. But me, I live forever.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

Dee: It’s been two years since Lilly lost her best friend to a vicious random shooting. Now, after a prestigious university extends her an offer of study, she has the chance to start afresh and leave all her demons behind. But the last thing she expects is to meet Elliot. He's a criminal. She's hasn'...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...
