Intoxicating Passion is a series of novellas really. The story involves two really broken people finding themselves and each other. While the romance/sex is there, there is also a lot of self discovery and self awareness that comes with being a new adult. Its SUPER angsty. I’m not sure I was really in the ‘mood’ for such an angsty read. You know, sometimes you just have to WANT something that is this dramatic and I really wasn’t in the mood. Perhaps my feelings/ratings would be different if I was looking for something uber dramatic. The writing is great and it will certainly keep you interested! You really want these two to find love and find themselves!

From Intoxicating Passion:
The scream echoed throughout the car, reaching into my soul and ripping it to pieces. Mere moments before, Korah issued my dare, leaving me staring opened mouthed after her.
It couldn’t be her painful cry.
I didn’t stop to think about it. I dashed from the vehicle, not bothering to close the door behind me, and followed the sound. There were two large dumpsters to the side of the restaurant, cloaked in darkness, and I knew in my gut she was back there. I ran faster, my feet pounding hard against the pavement, my lungs screaming for me to slow.
The dark figure raised an arm, fist connecting with bone, and I somehow made my legs go quicker. I saw the outline of a man as I reached my destination. I grasped the back of his clothing, flinging him to the side. Looking down, I saw Korah crumbled in a ball, her face bleeding, her already hurt neck looking worse than before. I screamed, “Call 911!” praying someone would hear, and focused on Christopher.
He wasn’t getting away this time.
