Publication Date:  August 25, 2016
Publisher:  Clean Reads

Orphaned at an early age, now twenty-four-year-old Camryn Lucks is ready to commit to find that special someone, and so accepts a date from a charming, gallant, handsome stranger. The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.

Red roses, a reminder of her parents' killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her life.

Finding herself in a whirlwind of torments shadowed by the blood-colored bloom, Cami finds solace in Isaac, a neighboring police officer. She’s desperate to escape the haunting memories, but she must revisit them in order to catch her would-be killer. Living life in constant fear has driven Cami to second-guess every choice she makes. Will the police catch the illusive murderer, or will Cami be forced to face him once again?

The silky voice of a man on his cell caught my attention. He was tall and debonair in his crisp, black suit with a red tie. I was drawn to him. The slight bend in his nose and his brown hair that reached his shoulders complemented his dark and wild eyes that seemed to hold a heavy secret.  

He ended his call and tucked his cell into his pocket then turned to me. "It's quite a sight out here," he said, my ears melting to hear more of his velvety voice.  

"Yes, it is. It's beautiful, but cold." I wrapped my arms around myself and hugged my torso. 

"Are you waiting for the bus?" he asked. His hands were tucked in his black slacks, keeping warm from the bitter wind.  

"I suppose so. To be honest, I don't think they are out tonight."  

"Oh," he said, taking a few steps closer.  

I felt the heat radiating off his body as he approached. My nose was in heaven as I caught the bold cologne he was wearing. It was just the right mix of musky and sweet. Even though I didn’t know his name, I was attracted to him and that scared me.  

"I don’t mean to pry, but do you need a ride to wherever you are headed?" he asked, flashing a smile.  
"Oh, um, I was just heading home. It's not too far. I can just walk." I looked up at him, then back at the heavy snowfall and mentally groaned.  

"Let me take you home. I have a car. A woman like you shouldn’t be walking home alone at night, especially in this weather."  

My Thoughts

The book starts out with Cami getting a ride home from a stranger named Carson.  He seemed nice and good-natured.  But he was the exact opposite of that.  Carson was a psychopath to the extreme.  He was also so sweet and innocent to Cami and always getting her flowers.  Then the true Carson came out when she did not except his marriage  proposal after of less than a month of dating.  Was he freaking delusion of course she wasn't going to except.  Who does that?

Then Carson tries to kill Cami and she runs over to her neighbors apartment who is a cop named Issac.  Issac was sweet and nurturing to Cami throughout her entire experience with Carson.  He gave her a place to stay until Carson was caught and put behind bars.

Cami did not have a good life right from the beginning, her parents were murdered when she was younger.  Then she lost everybody she loved due to crazy Carson.  He continually stacked her until he was caught.  

This book definitely makes you not want to talk to strangers or get rides from them and to trust no one.  This book definitely keeps you on your toes throughout the entire book!  I am glad Cami could finally find love at the end, despite losing everyone she loves.  She deserves to find true love and a happy life!  I enjoyed this book and recommend it.  I am excited to continue with the series!

I received a copy from Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours for a honest review.
