Once with him was never enough.
I am the girl you dislike. The girl you snub at parties. I am the one who flirts with men and knows no boundaries. I am the one you whisper about. The one who has no rules. I am the one who takes and uses without any regret or excuses.
On the outside I am perfect. I have money, looks, and a personality that makes people stand up and take notice, but on the inside I am broken and hurting.
Then I met Cash Marshall.
He wasn’t what I needed, but I wanted him anyway. It was Cash’s carved, muscular body I thought about. It was his cool, confident touch I craved. I swore he would only be a one-night stand, another distraction to take away the pain.
But then our world changed.
Our story is not about love. Love is pretty and sweet and full of niceties. Those no longer exist. Our story is about finding each other again in a world gone crazy. It’s about surviving the impossible when war ravaged our land. It’s about saving each other from the darkness and finding out just how strong we could be.
And maybe, just maybe, along the way, we’ll find love…
Once and for all.
I was a huge fan of Promise Me Darkness and Promise Me Light by Paige Weaver and I have been anxiously awaiting Cash’s story (which can be read as a stand alone).
Cat…how do I tell you about Cat. She’s a beauty queen bitch that runs the show, there’s just no better way to explain it. There is this…
“I was going to hell, my grandmother said. I was rotten to the core, my stepmother claimed. I was perfect, my dad insisted. I was all of the above and more.”
I was instantly irritated by her. For a good portion of the book I wanted to slap her. When she said things like:
“He was the first man to show no interest in me. For that, he got my undivided attention.”
I just wanted to throw something at her. I did not want her flirting with Cash…I have staked a claim on him after all. This man is the epitome of everything you could want in a man.
“I was a grown man that was usually calm and collected. I didn’t ask for much. I worked the land. I had a little money. I paid my dues. “
A man in a cowboy hat and boots….working with his hands to make a living. A man with family values and hot to top it all off? YES PLEASE. The way he approaches things so casually was one of my favorite things about him. The chemistry between Cat and Cash was something different for me, opposites attract and all that.
“From the moment I met him, he made my hands shake and my heart race. He pissed me off one moment and made my panties we the next.”
Things change in the blink of an eye….literally the world as they know it stops. Cash is still the same man he was, and more. He kept on doing what he had to which just amplified how much I love him.
“I was a man on a mission. One born to do what I had to do. I knew the land like the back of my hand and could be one helluva problem if I wanted to be. I dared anyone to try to mess with me.”
Cat impressed me too…she stepped up and did what she had to. Becoming a strong independent woman is NOT an easy thing to do and she owned it. It’s funny how things change. The transformation of the characters was impressive and made the story just get better and better. I can’t wait to continue reading their story in the future, looking forward to more for sure!

“He was my darkness and I was his light.
We couldn’t exist without each other.”
For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn’t drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect.
But that was about to change.
Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule – Don’t fall in love.
But some rules were meant to be broken.
We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn’t know there was one thing I wanted and couldn’t have…him.
But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful…
and so is the darkness.
The epic conclusion of New York Times bestselling book Promise Me Darkness.
“I’m darkness, Maddie. Stay away from men like me. You’ll only get hurt.”
At one time my life was simple. Easy. But that was before the war. Now I was no longer an average college student. I was a survivor. A woman living in a ravaged world. My future was not bright and my life was far from perfect. The war had taken so much from me… but it wasn’t finished yet. It wanted more.
It wanted my heart. My soul. The one person I couldn’t live without.
It wanted Ryder Delaney. My best friend. The bad boy. The one person who could fight like no other and love me like no one else. He was the father of my baby. I watched him walk away one hot summer day and I prayed he would return. I needed him like I needed air to breathe and water to drink. Without him I was lost. A light without her darkness.
Until he returns, I’ll wait for him. And I believe he will return because love is powerful…
And so is the light calling him home.
