What book has kept you up all night reading under the covers?
When I first got my iPad three years ago, my cousin downloaded the Kindle app for me, and the first thing I bought was “50 Shades of Grey” on a friend’s adamant recommendation. It was a fun, sexy, passionate, smutty read, and I fell in love with Mr. Grey, of course. The fact that the iPad made reading at night in bed so easy with the black screen and white lettering, I was done for… I kept saying to myself “just one more chapter” and before you knew it, it was 4am.
As a young girl, I was a huge fan of Nancy Drew, and would read one after the other and would always stay up reading way past my bedtime! Now my daughters have inherited my collection.
I am that gash in her soul.
Once I loved Grace, really loved her.
And she loved me, and it was so fucking beautiful.

Are the moments that shape us absolutely random?
Is time not fluid?
I made promises to them, to her.
Especially to her.
Promises I still burn to keep.This book contains adult language, sex, violence and is intended for mature audiences.
