Synopsis
Abandoned.
Thrown away.
Invisible.
Every single one of those could be used to describe me. They can tell you my story—my sad past—without a single syllable passing through my lips.
I hate them—those who lied to me. They claimed to love me, but in reality they used me when convenient. My parents. Sister. And now Talan. Loving them has left me empty. Sad.
Alone.
Not anymore. Screw them. My love has turned to anger…hate. Now, what consumes me is the urge to destroy, to force them to see what they wrecked with their carelessness. My name will never be forgotten. Not after I have my revenge.
His tears will be my ultimate retribution.

5 Crazy-ass stars!
**Please note you MUST read Marking Him, and Marking Her before you read this or you will have NO idea what is going on.**
If you have already read them, then you already know what a crazy fuck Janice is! She is the girl you love to hate, and finally you get to hear a bit of the story in her POV. Let me tell you, getting inside Janice's head is one hell of a trip. I have yet to experience anything like it before in all the books that I have read in my lifetime. With that being said, you finally get to understand a bit as to why she is the way she is, and I actually began to *feel* for her character, instead of just wanting to punch her in her face like I did in the past. She's damaged in so many ways, and you are able to feel her pain. She is unstable, but at the same time unwilling to get the help she so desperately needs. Her character is far more complex than you could ever have imagined she would be, and Elena M. Reyes did an impeccable job in showing all sides of this character and her story.

Janice's craziness runs much deeper than we all thought, and she is taking things to the extreme. Her love for Talan is consuming every fiber of her being, and is downright controlling her. She blames Maya for Talan not returning her feelings of love and is prepared to get him back in her life by any means necessary. In her mind, the only way to do this is rid the world of Maya. 

The introduction of some new characters really throws a twist into this series, and I cannot wait to see where things go from here. Just when you begin to learn about the new characters…*BAM* The End. I was left with even more questions than answers but the time I finished reading, and I am left NEEDING more! 

Well played Ms. Reyes… well played! 


   Excerpt  
 “You have three minutes to pull your nasty ass up and get out that door. Three, Janice, or I call the cops. Your call.” Talan laughed and pulled Maya in closer. He didn’t give a shit that I was bleeding on the floor and looking up at their blatant display of affection. Deep down, I knew this was all an act on his behalf. He wanted me, not her. Why continue this lie? When I decided to come over to his house tonight, things played out differently in my head. He was supposed to pull me into his arms and make me feel what I needed to survive. Affection. This wasn’t an empty infatuation on my behalf. I needed him. More than she ever would. I’d followed Maya down to the Seaquarium last night. There was something big going on. The parking lot was full, and it wasn’t with tourists. Everyone wore their uniforms, looking excited as they chatted on their way in. Talan should’ve been alone. This had been my one and only shot to make him hear me out without her interference. Her bullshit lies. If only I’d come right then. Instead, I answered Mother’s phone call. Spent hours listening to her prattle on about how I needed to let the good Lord in, how he would help me release the demons that she and Daddy dearest created. The ones they denied having anything to do with. It was my fault. Every goddamned thing wrong in our family’s life, my repentance would solve. Fuck the fact that my life was crumbling around me. It was too late for her to give a shit. Just another instance where her fucking existence ruined me. Maya turned around in his arms and pulled his face down toward hers. “I want her gone and you naked in our bed upstairs.” My stomach rolled at the sight. He was letting her touch him—enjoyed the jealousy that coursed through my veins. Neither watched as my hands clenched into tight fists and my fingers dug into the skin there. How the blood that ran down my lips boiled with hatred. Still, I loved him. He ground his hip against her, and she moaned. The outline of his hardened cock could not be hidden, nor could the shiver than ran through me be stopped. It should be my body he used—took his pleasure from. I’ve felt that glorious dick inside me. Was made to feel alive by every ridge—its every pulse. “Are you going to punish me?” He smirked down at her, eyes heavy with lust. For the first time, a small ripple of hatred flowed through me at the sound of his voice. Why was he doing this to me? “No.” Maya reached up and nipped his chin. “Just going to teach you a lesson in ownership.” She walked away then. Never looked back toward the woman she assaulted and left on the ground. I was made to feel unworthy. There was no concern in her for me, just a cocky sway to her hips as she marched toward his room. “You heard her.” Talan stood across from me now, door wide open and his arrogant smirk firmly in place. “Get the fuck out, Janice. There’s nothing left for you here. Just go.” When the fuck did he move? “Baby, please. Don't do this,” I begged him one last time as I stood and wiped my lip. Couldn’t he see what his carelessness was doing to me? How he killed me with each word that left his lips? “I don't deserve this. Not again.” His head tilted to the side, an inquisitive expression on his face. “Again? What the fuck do you mean, again?” Ignoring his question, I walked closer. This was not the time to delve into a part of me—a part I couldn’t get a hold on. My hand reached out to grab him, yet he pulled back. Talan’s handsome face was full of the disgust he felt at my mere presence “All I need is for you to love me. See me again.” The room began to feel small, the walls and the truth I’ve ignored closing in on me. My fantasy of happiness began to crumble like a stack of cards blown by the wind. Fuck. My chest hurt. “Please.” It left me as a strangled whisper. My final plea. Talan had to realize that only he held the key to my sanity. He shook his head and sighed. “No. No more. I never gave you hope, nor did I promise you a possibility for more. You did this to yourself.” He made his choice. There was nothing else to say. “Okay.” “Okay? Really? Just like that. After all this…” he waved his hand around the room “…bullshit!” How fucking dare he treat me like this? Like a nuisance. “You know what, Talan? Fuck you and your little whore.” This time, it was he who took a step closer. “Watch your goddamned mouth,” he spat with venom. Fear crept in, building within my gut, but I stood firm. He wasn’t going to intimidate me.
