Overview

I am Katya Waters.
A survivor of violence.
I fought death and won.
So why do I feel so dead inside?

Katya Waters is a small-town girl, mentally unprepared to deal with her deep, dark past. While walking in her sanctuary, her innocence was torn from her in the most brutal fashion- run to the ground as if she were an animal by a pack of vicious Hunters. After they wounded her spirit, they left her for dead.

How does one overcome a debilitating, tragic event? By strength, perseverance, and an unrelenting will to survive.

Out of desire, Katya no longer wanted to be the hunted. She hungered to be the hunter. Finally taking her life into her own hands, Katya reached for what she'd earned, for the respect every human being so rightfully deserves.

By moving to a new city for the job of her dreams, Katya unwittingly brought her past nightmares to life, slowly drawing the repressed, dark memories into the light. With a deep desire to explore her true nature, Katya entered the BDSM Club, Restraint; never realizing there would be no escape from her secrets within the club's walls. Katya's entire existence turned into a living, breathing, never-ending therapy session from Hell.

The Boss pulled Katya into a thrilling game of Kat & Mouse as a way to force Katya to accept the truth of her past. Follow Katya's heartbreaking journey as she connected the mystery of her past with her thrilling present.

... As long as I have a tomorrow, I can endure today.

Meet the Author

Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.

Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn't speak at all. If it wasn't for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.

Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today- a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.

Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn't allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.

Definitely disappointed in this book. It takes a bit to swallow the premise and Kat's easy acceptance of it, esp. considering her history! So it initially asks for too much to be taken for granted. She knows she's a switch but has never been in a scene, a man shows up inthe middle of the night and she doesn't feel threatened. Huh? Without revealing too much, she goes from only having sex once 12 years prior to falling in with three men easily. There are also more than a few grammar tense errors and continuity/description oversights that can make things hard to follow. The idea of this gradual reveal was interesting but the execution was lacking. At 700+ pages, it's not a bad bang for the buck, but definitely not a favourite.

This is a darker and more twisted story, but really good. The characters are so well developed and the story reels you in almost immediately. Also...it's a longer book...lots of bang for your buck.

I did not want to put it down. Although I could somewhat predict the end, I still had to keep turning the pages. Well done.
