Empathy Release


I am a brother
I am a police detective
I am a contract killer
I don’t want to love
I don’t want to feel
I don’t want … EMPATHY.

They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life.
I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.


I was a daughter
I was a student
I was a victim
Did I have his love?
Did I make him feel?
Did I have his empathy?
When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.
Ooooooooh holy hell!!!! Where do I even begin with this review? This is me now ................................. Yep reads like a great review right? LOL There is only so much I can say about this book as well without letting the cat outta the bag. But from the start I was hooked. Page one I.WAS.GULED. Sat and read it in one sitting. As I do with Kers books. Because lets face it THERE AMAZING!

Okay *Deeps breathes* Lets start with Melody. She's a fabulous looking young girl in college. Comes from money, and has went threw heartache. Like a lot of people at the age of 19 I suppose. But this girl is special. She just doesn't know it right now. In her lies something that will awaken a beast one she never saw coming. And all because one night her life is turned upside down with a simple trip back home.....

Then there's Blake who lets face it is all kinds of messed up. BUT O.M.G is he hot! He has so many demons in him from the poor life he led. Or should I say the way his mam brought him and his younger brother up. And at the age of 18 his life is changed forever. But he accepts it. Hell he nurtures the demons in him. And now at 25 doing what he has done for years and not feeling a thing he doesn't think anything will change him from doing what he's doing and looking after his baby brother Ryan. Then his hole world explodes when Melody falls into his lap(Not literally).

I wanna say SO MUCH on this book. BUT no matter what way I go to say things I end up saying something that blows the whole book open. So just take my word for it. This book is a MIND F**K. Which you will LOVE! And you will get to the end of the book and be like HO-LY CRAP BALLS! I kid you not. I'm like that now. And I pretty much just messaged Ker that my review would be ......................... Because that's how I feel! So just one click this! DOOOOOOO IT!

And thank you Ker for giving me the chance to read this before it comes out <3

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active, I would want to change the script haha! I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling too  When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts with my younger sister, who shares my soul, we are two peas in a pod.
