~~About the Author~~
Alice La Roux is a dirty minded, mouthy Welsh author who is still trying to find her genre while dabbling in erotica, fantasy and horror. She’s a bookworm who reads anything and everything and is addicted to social media. She’s happily married to her wonderful husband and loves her lazy little dog. She’s always written but never considered being a writer until she realised she couldn’t live without a pen in her hand.
He was my downfall six years ago.
His actions lead me to a life that tried to ruin me.
Even though I almost cracked under the weight of the world I was in, I managed to win a losing battle.
I fought for my second chance and I made my way back to him.
Because the end game for me wasn’t death; it was him.
And as long as I had him, I was alive.
I made one wrong move in a world I thought I knew everything about and I lost her.
I was stupid and naive to think I was above him, but when he took her, I rose up and took the throne.
Now, the empire was mine. All I needed was her.
When she came back, I could finally breathe. There was no longer a void in my life. I was whole again.
Everything was complete and my empire was solid now that I had my backbone.
Until our world was flipped upside down and the world around us began to crumble from beneath our feet.
