Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 3, 2015
I am the forgotten one, the girl who was left for dead.
In this mental hospital I call prison I plot my revenge.
I remember everything.
Their faces. Their touch. Even their smell.
What they did to me was beyond cruel. I’m going to return the favor.
In here I survive by using someone just as they used me. One of them wants to claim me as his own. A man without mercy, without a conscience, craving the wickedness inside me. But I won’t be a puppet for his desires. I will play his strings like a puppeteer and use him to escape.
And when I do … I will kill them all.
This is Ashley's story and the final book in the Delirious Series. This is a full-length novel. These books should be read in order.
WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, strong language, dubious consent, and graphic violence.
I do what he wants, pursing my lips close together.
“Fuck, you’re so pretty,” he murmurs. “Let me taste that ice cream, too.”
Suddenly he leans in and smashes his lips on mine. I’m caught by surprise as he kisses my lips like he wants to eat me. His mouth is voracious, sucking at my lips, licking the rim. Without thinking about it, my lips part, as he pushes his tongue inside. He’s so forceful, I can’t resist, while he eagerly licks my tongue. He’s greedy as fuck, and somehow this makes me want to latch onto his mouth. I can’t explain it, let alone justify it. He takes my mouth like it was his all along, claiming my lips and tongue like an animal. He groans and sucks harshly, not giving me an inch to breathe. I’m losing it. Losing this battle between me and him, between who holds the power and who is the submissive. Lines are blurred, and I find myself questioning if I could remotely enjoy this. Because if I do … I’m a lost cause. The problem is, I already know I am. I’m insane … but this kiss simply consumes me.
When his lips leave mine, I’m left with a wantonness I’ve never felt before. This kiss turned me upside down, made my lips numb, my brain senseless.
“Fuck me …” he says. “You really are good at seducing me.”
“I didn’t do anything,” I mutter.
“Exactly.” He grabs my chin and then places another peck next to my ear. “You taste so fucking good, Ashley. I wonder what your pussy tastes like. Tell me … how much does your pussy ache to be touched right now?”
My breathing falters as I attempt to temper my lust, but a flush still appears on my face. I can feel him grin against my skin as he plants another kiss on my neck. “Don’t lie. You know what happens if you lie.” His finger trails down from my chin toward my breast, circling around my nipple, making my breathing even more unsteady.
“I can hear you breathe, Ashley. Irregular. Your heartbeat increasing in speed.”
When he touches the tip of my nipple, I stop breathing entirely. “Your body already wants me … it’s only a matter of time before your heart does, too.”
