Seven years ago, a secret had torn them apart, but their love always pulled them back together. Things have taken a turn for the worst, and once again, circumstances have brought them together. Can Rachel continue to hide behind her past, or will she stop running from the one man she would love forever? Can Marshall get his girl back, or will it always be a complicated cycle of make ups and break ups?
Complicated, there is more than complication to Rachel and Marshall's relationship.
" He could unravel me like no other, he could destroy me, but like a moth drawn to a bright flame, I step into my demise."- Rachel
They were deeply in love, hiding their relationship because of a five year age difference. Everything was amazing, but with one major, life altering decision, their relationship will crumble.
Rachel thought she was doing the right thing. But doing that right thing will destroy her and Marshall's relationship. It's a secret she's kept for year's.
"It was never done between us, Rae. True love doesn’t just end, it’s forever."- Marshall
Every now and again, they find their way back to each other, only for it to end as soon as it began.
With one tragedy, it will bring Rea and Marshall together again, but will Rea finally let this secret stop hurting what she wants... a relationship with Marshall?
I've never read the previous book's, so I didn't know anything about any of the characters, and you don't have to. There isn't a better title for this novella, because Rachel and Marshall are definitely complicated. I was wanting her to finally tell him why she pushed him away, but it didn't happen. This book is about 40% sex. We get a cliffhanger, a major one, but I can see what's coming. I need to read the previous book.
Other Books in the series:
The first in a new three book series from Ghiselle St. James:
This is not a fairytale. This is not a story of a woman who is perfect. This is not the story of a perfect couple that sails off into the sunset. This is gritty. This is frustrating. This is heartbreaking. This is my story, hard as it may be to tell.
My name is Sullivan Beal – at least, that’s what I tell people – and I live life by my own rules. Most of my adult life has been spent hiding from my past. That is, until I meet HIM face-to-face.
Ben Hayes is the demanding C.O.O. who is hell-bent on having me for himself. But, I’m wrong for him. I know it, the universe knows it. If he ever found out who I really am, how utterly tainted I am, he wouldn’t waste his time wanting me.
There are things in my past that would destroy everyone in my wake. But Ben is relentless, trying to break down the walls around my heart that a messy past has caused me to construct. It’s a pity he doesn’t know…I am too tainted for love.
“Love isn’t for me, and my kind of love is too tainted, too blemished to share with anyone.”
|Broken Love (Tainted Love Book 2)
The second in a three book series by Ghiselle St. James.
This isn't a perfect story. It's gritty, dark, frustrating but beautiful. Love isn't all hearts and flowers and bullshit declarations that are hollow and empty. If you love someone, you have to PROVE you're worth they're love. The road to happily ever after is paved with mistakes and horrible decisions...don't hold mine against me.
I have been captured by the only person I hate in this life; a person that I once foolishly loved. He is poison to me. Will I ever be free of him? Will I ever see Rachel again? Will I ever see my parents, my brother again? And Ben...will he ever know how I feel about him? So many wasted days I spent resisting him. A tear trickles down my face at that; because as I see Rick shaking that needle with a wicked gleam in his eye, I know this is the last time anyone will ever see me alive.
I've worked very hard to maintain this control I have, but in just a few weeks Sullivan Beal came into my life and toppled my carefully constructed walls, and for a moment I didn't care. Now that she is out of my life, I should be happy...but all I can do is think about her; how I miss her smile and how she made me feel free. I have to get her back. The love I have for her may not be perfect, but our relationship scarcely is. And that's what makes it perfect. She may be tainted with demons from her past that she holds close to her chest, but I will free her from them; because as frustrating as my sweet girl is...I'm in this for the long haul. She might be broken, but I love her anyway.
But one phone call...that dreaded phone call has me in a tailspin. Sullivan is kidnapped & it's a race against time to find her before he hurts her...
Ugh, I hate talking about myself in the third person.
I went to the Jamaica Theological Seminary (haha, yes!) where I studied Social Work and graduated with honors in June 2010. Since then, the writer in me has reawakened and hasn’t gone to sleep. I completed my first novel in January of 2013 which led me
into writing my debut novel South Row in March 2014.
I pray my passion brings you as much joy as it has brought me.
