I breathe in.
I breathe out.
I eat, sleep and breathe.
I'm a survivor.
I'll do whatever it takes to keep my life moving forward.
I shouldn't want to. I should want to be buried in the ground somewhere. I'm stronger than that, better than that. Right?
My name is Becca Carpenter and no one really knows who I am. Becca Carpenter isn't even my real name.
I slink in and out of the shadows because it's the only way I know I'll survive.
They're after me. One day, they'll find me.
Life takes a turn for the better, but I never expected to find a calm happiness in Phoenix, Arizona. But like everything else, I've destroyed that bliss, and my best friend. It's what I do, how I survive.
Falling in love with a man in the spotlight is definitely not in the cards of my life’s story.
But Bryan Hayes, country music's biggest superstar, has other ideas about my past. The only problem is he can't see I'm not the person I pretend to be. He wants me, but will the secrets of my past destroy him?
God knows, it's killing me.
Review by: Erin
This storyline was well developed and flowed easily. The characters were easy to love. Becca's story is heartbreaking, yet empowering. One minute I wanted to give her a huge hug, then the next a fist bump and a "you go girl". She has set her life to "survival mode" and hasn't really let anyone in. That all changes when Bryan steps in the picture. Bryan is a great character. Compassionate and understanding, but also full of passion and lust! Whew! He is the perfect man for Becca. There a few appearances of earlier characters. An all round great book.
Best Selling Erotic, Paranormal and Contemporary Romance author Zoey Derrick comes from Glendale, Arizona. Zoey, was a mortgage underwriter by day and is now a romance and erotica novelist full-time.

Her stories are hopeful yet true to life, skillfully avoiding melodrama and the unrealistic, bringing her gripping Erotica only closer to the heart of those that dare dipping into it.
