***Warning: Contains graphic language, frequent graphic sex, violence, and very dark themes.

***First and foremost, The Sordid Promise is a psychological thriller. The erotic elements are secondary. It is not a simple, happy story. This is a twisted, complicated, and broken story.
Please, please read the PREFACE before purchasing.

When physical pain allows you to escape your reality; what do you do when the pain is no longer strong enough to quiet the emotional ache?

Diouana "Nikki" returned to her hometown six months ago to tend to her sick mother. She thought she'd left her "baggage" behind her on the opposite coast, only to find that it never left her side. As her self-destructive thoughts begin to consume her, her mother -- realizing Nikki's torment -- pushes Nikki to complete her last wishes.

Eric Brenton, Nikki's new neighbor, lives in a dark, chaotic world that is easily hidden behind his model good looks and cocky demeanor. Unapologetic about his dirtier intentions, he sets his sights on Nikki with an offer to help her. But his help comes with very unorthodox conditions and a huge price.

And Eric...comes with an extensive black box warning label

My Review

Holy mind-fuck of a book Batman!! That shit was off the hook cray cray and I’m not sure if I loved it or hated it! All I know is that I couldn’t put it the fuck down! I felt so confused most of the time trying to figure what the hell was going on…But I must like that kind of shit because...

This little doozy of a book will leave you feeling confused, aroused, CRAZY, constantly second guessing what the hell is going on, which characters to believe, all the while leaving you panting for more! The story of Nikki and the way beyond hot alpha crazy man that is Eric is one hell of a read that I will not soon forget.

I honestly can’t even really describe what the hell this book is about because days later I’m not even sure if I even know myself. All that I know is that I really think I liked reading it and being made to feel a little crazy in the process. Kudos Mrs. Lane I’m tongue-tied and frankly a bit speechless on how to review this book, other than to say it ‘s a crazy hot assed mess of a read with lots of cray cray and a ton of SEX! Hot and crazy SEX! I’m seriously at a loss for the words! 
(This is probably my shortest review this far!)

So if your looking for an emotionally charged erotic mind-fuck then this is the perfect book!

If you do decide to read it, please share your thoughts with me! I would love to hear others describe this book, because clearly I cannot :)

★★☆ 4 Mind Bending, I think I liked it Stars ☆★★

About the Author

By way of Rochester, NY and several other places before I landed in California. I live with my husband, dog, daughter, and a demon masquerading as a dog.

When I began writing (I know this sounds familiar, over dozens authors state this) it was an outlet for me. Not only that, I was creating fan fiction before I knew what fan fiction was. Eventually, my writing evolved into standalone worlds with standalone characters.

While I write across genres (I find it hard to stick to one genre), I do have an archetype when it comes to the female protagonist — they have to have certain type of strength, strong convictions, and layered personalities. There will often be a lot of darkness and depth to my stories, but I don’t see the point in writing vapid characters who are thrust into “safe” situations.

Writing Science Fiction/Fantasy is my first love. If there is one thing for sure, I'm a bit of a misfit when it comes to Romance. I don't read it much, but I tend to write it a lot -- a very dark version of it.
