Blurb

I was tired. Not the physical kind, where you yern for sleep. but where the one where I was tired of living. Of feeling. I was tired of reminiscing Grace, i craved her., I was tired of feeling this unwanted ache in my chest. Most of all, I was tired of being tired.

Holden

I silently walked into our- well my apartment, wiping the dried tears off my face.

The apartment felt empty.

Useless.

Now that Grace was gone, there didn’t seem to be a purpose in living here.

Grace Willis. Grace Willis was my girlfriend. My dead girlfriend whom committed suicide at the age of 19.

A silent cry escaped my lips, at the sudden thought of her name.

I missed the way she sat at our sofa, with her legs folded, sobbing at those silly tragic love stories that she loved to read. Or when she laughed, that amazing laugh of hers, how she would crinkle her nose. Which was the most amusing sight ever seen.

Oh and her love. How she always seemed to love and accept people for who they were unconditionally. Including me. I was different. I wasn’t the ideal perfect boyfriend one would pick.

I suddenly grew angry. Angry at the fact that she was unhappy, and I didn’t notice. Angry because in some way, I could have helped. Angry, because I could have been that small possibility on why she wouldn’t be dead right now.

Red was all I saw as I smashed my fists into the wooden door. A loud groan escaped my dried lips as I fell to the ground.

I suddenly broke down crying, curling myself into a tight secure ball. I cried for all the times we fought. I cried for all the times I embarrassed her. I also cried for the all those times I took highly advantage of her.

It hurt. Hell, it hurt more than anything I could imagine.

It got to the point where it wasn’t just mentally; but now physically. My heart ached for the brown headed girl who I was madly in love with.

It was a losing battle. And I didn’t know if I should surrender or not.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

reads4fun: I like how the characters are in this story, Death seems sporadic and fun, while Dimitri seems to be more focused but they will argue over the littlest things.

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Dave Allen: Well-rounded. well-detailed story. Bull's done a thorough job developing her characters. An intriguing read!

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
