Brutal Slayer of Words
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ― Sylvia Plath

January 18, 2024
This book is an interconnected standalone within the Ends World. While you don't have to read the Ends Duet before reading this book, it is recommended that you do in order to understand the entire Ends World up to this point.
I didn’t mean for anyone to get hurt.
That wasn’t my intention.
And I knew he would come for me.
Was it too much to hope he would just forget about me and everything that transpired between us.
Forget about my betrayal.
Because here I am… In a box.
And he’s out there, lying in wait for me.
He wants me to bleed for him.
To purge my soul.
He wants his pound of flesh, but what he doesn’t know is that I have already sacrificed everything.
My body, my soul, just to save the person I love the most.
And I have nothing left to give.
She thinks I've forgotten, and that I'll just let it go.
But how can I forget about the worst kind of betrayal?
The death of someone I cared about.
So I will push her to the point of desperation, to the point of no return.
I will break her against my cold, dead heart and see what lies beneath her calm façade.
She will suffer my depravity.
She will never see me coming.
What Doesn't Kill Us
Ends Duet, Book 2
October 19, 2023
It was unexpected.
Incredibly inconvenient even, but if it meant she was safe, then so be it.
After a tireless search for a nameless, faceless enemy - still, they remain elusive.
Each day that goes by without her is excruciating.
But I know, she will never be satisfied until she’s back by my side.
Spitting mad and out for blood, she knows what buttons to push to get me there, reminding me of who she belongs to.
It was shocking.
Agonizingly painful even, but if it meant he was alive, then so be it.
After assiduously searching, I will not accept that he is lost to me.
But as each day that goes by, breathing increasingly becomes exhausting.
Until one day, he’s there; fueled by rage and out for revenge - determined to remind me who I belong to.
Ends of Being
Ends Duet, Book 1

She’s a f**king menace.
She has no regard for her safety and dances along the tongue in the mouth of danger.
A loose cannon who torments me day in and day out.
She thinks I can’t rise to meet her challenge. She thinks I don’t know what goes on in that beautiful head of hers.
But she’s sorely mistaken.
Mistaken about who exactly she is to me.
Mistaken about how much danger she’s in.
And mistaken about what I can take.
Challenge f**king accepted.
It’s adorable really. How tough, “Mr. Clark Kent”, thinks he is, in his starched shirts and cashmere sweaters.
A bore to his core, he’s my favorite target of torment. I love to push his buttons and see how far I can take it.
But something about him calls to me.
Somehow I know there is more to him than meets the eye.
What will it take to make him loosen that tie and release the beast?
What harm can it actually bring?
I intend to find out.

Declan Hughes, the MMC in this book, was first introduced in the Ends World Series. While you definitely do not need to read that series to fully understand and enjoy this book, you may want to give it a read just to familiarize yourself with some of the characters who will inevitably make random appearances in Declan's story. Declan first appears in Book 3, A Fine Line, but the best reading experience in my very biased mind is beginning with book one in the Ends Duet, Ends of Being.
So, I'm not exactly a great guy.
Sure, I'm a great musician and a helluva entertainer, but when it comes to the finer nuances
of wooing a woman I may be somewhat lacking in patience and style.
You see, I tend to just want my way, and when it comes to getting my way,
there are no limits, no boundaries, no lines that I will not cross
in order to get exactly what I want.
And right now, I want her.
Sure, she hates me, and she's engaged to another man,
but what is love if you don't have to prove you're the better option.
Or in this case, the best option.
And also, her only option.
I've been America's princess for so long
I don't remember what it's like to be anonymous.
My life in the spotlight has rendered me immune to many things,
but especially the unwanted advances of men.
And for the most part, my ability to deflect and
disengage have served me well.
Up until now.
He thinks he can wear me down,
that he can push someone else aside
and step into his shoes as if that part of my life never happened.
But what he doesn't know is that I've been protecting myself
from the evils of mankind for my entire life, and so far
I'm still batting .500 on coming out unscathed.
And I won't let him be the exception.
