He saw me as one. 

I became addicted to the other. 



He saw us as forever. 

I saw our love story as bittersweet. 



Why? 



Simple. 



It was all caused by one thing – total, abominable darkness. 



But that was what we loved the most. 



After all, darkness made these heroine hearts.

“What’s wrong?”
His head snaps up with my innocent question.
“Are you serious right about now?” he asks me, his eyes wide and boring into me. “You’re asking me what’s wrong…”
“Yeah,” I say, gulping back against my dry throat. “You can’t be angry about this.”
“I can’t?” he queries, his eyebrows shooting up, his eyes widening.
“I deserve this,” I say, reiterating the words to make them real.
“Come here,” he orders gently, ignoring my plea.
I do as I’m told, moving toward him slowly. It’s as I get close enough, he reaches inside, placing a hand around my left wrist. He pulls my arm out and through the bars, forcing it to become outstretched and on show. His fingers begin to trail across the points which Santiago forced those needles into my veins, getting his immediate response to me on drugs. They left angry pinpricks across my skin, showing exactly where the high started.
“It’s nothing,” I tell him once more, trying my hardest to get my hand back from him.
He scoffs on that response, not letting me go. “What have they been forcing you to take?” He asks, his fingers falling away from the track marks.
“Heroin,” I whisper, my eyes dropping in shame.
“And you want some more?” he asks me, his eyes coming up to meet mine.
I don’t speak, I just bite down on my lip.
Javier’s face darkens once more, but he’s yet to let me go.
“You do don’t you?”
“It’s all I can think about,” I admit, shamefulness filters into my system, positioned right next to the deep rooted craving. “Just something to make me feel better.”
“It won’t help,” he tells me, trying to make me face up to the facts.
“It will… for a moment,” I admonish foolishly. I yank my arm away from him, moving a little further away from the bars. “It’ll help,” I say it more to appease my own fragile mentality, not to force Javier to believe me. “It will, Javier, it’ll make this all better.”
And now he sees the girl who was presented to him on his first day. The girl with the slow burning addiction and the eager need for punishment in order to justice her every sin.
I took everything that was dealt my way as a way of chastisement. My boss and his son had no idea they were helping a criminal get her penalty for being just as bad as everyone else. Now Javier sees it. He’s slowly seeing what Eighteen is really made of.

REVIEW 

5 Stars
What the fuck???????? I feel like that’s all that’s going round in my head right now!! What a way for the story to end.
I knew this story was going to be darker than my normal reads but I couldn’t have predicted just how much. This book was DARK! It explained things pretty graphically and there were times I shied away from some of the events that took place. In saying that I think that was part of the reason I couldn’t set it down!
Isla was dealt such a shit hand, she was used and abused and still her spirit never broke!! That girl possessed a strength that few women could even have dreamt of! She took on the role of head girl/ carer of the other younger girls and gave them the strength they needed to carry on in the life!
Javier had me conflicted, I loved him when I was first introduced to him. He just seemed liked such a great hero but there came a point in the book I hated his guts! He won me round again though and I fell in love with his character all over again.
Santiago was a complete and utter c%nt, that’s the nicest word I could use for him!! I seriously contemplated and planned the things I would do to him had he been a real person!!
There are times I find a book a little predictable and storylines easily read but this book was totally different. I never knew where the author was going to go next and I couldn’t have even guessed most of the time!
This book was not a story full of fairy tales and romance. It was raw, gritty and sometimes downright scary to read. This is a book that will stay with you long after you finish.

Kirsty is more than comfortable with talking to imaginary people – if it means they’re writing a book! 

She’s a British author with a habit of bad jokes, dirty mindedness and a love of laughing at the worse possible times. She spends her time balancing a full-time job with writing while trying to up her reading game!
