“Words are my weapon.
Stories wrap around my soul, choking me, capturing you.
I don’t work in dreams.
I don’t offer escapes.
I cage you within my nightmares.
Magnolia Grace is a horror writer, despite what the name might suggest.
One of the best in the business, if you asked around.
Pressure comes with that title. Expectation for the next nightmare. The next bestseller.
That’s what it is.
She ca’t be healthy. Because that means she won’t write.
And she hasn’t been writing.
A looming deadline and a crumbling psyche drive her into the woods. To a cabin which was the site of a grizzly murder.
A serial killer, butchering women, toying with her.
Her plan is to borrow some of the horror that seeped into the soil.
But hers follows her.
The woods are meant to be her escape. But they are almost her demise.
He was an unlikely saviour. An unlikely muse. He has horrors of his own. A motorcycle club looking to settle a score. A soul too broken to offer her anything but pain.”
This book is 100% a genre-hopping, finger-gripping story that will just drag you into a harsh, raw, world of a struggling author.
When I first picked this one up, the vibes gave off a suspenseful, somewhat-horror, dark and twisted world that slowly meshed into a steamy, MC romance that I was not expecting. It had a little bit of everything, and I can honestly say that I could NOT put it down!
I will say that there are triggers for mental health as the main character struggles heavily with depression and dark thoughts.
If you aren’t a fan of a wounded, morbid writing style, I recommend that you set this one aside. But if you are all for it with a hint of serial killers on the side, this book is right up your alley!
I gave this one a 4 out of 5 stars. This is a novel I recommend going into completely blind as each page gives off the perfect thrilling twist, leaving you flipping the pages to see what could possibly happen next!

*Disclaimer: I requested a free copy of this book from Wildfire Marketing in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
“Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth. As she grew up, her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular, gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to
stop any time soon.
Raised in small-town New Zealand, Anne had a truly special childhood, growing up in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. She has backpacked across Europe, ridden camels in the Sahara, eaten her way through Italy, and had all sorts of crazy adventures. Currently living in London, she’s on a whole new adventure.”
