Death took Jason from Clarissa, and she blames herself. Night after night, she throws herself into the arms of other men—men who abuse and pleasure her, but never take her far enough. She is waiting for the one who will take her over the edge and into death, so she can be reunited with Jason.
Death didn’t take Jason far enough. Every night, Jason watches. His immortal self is trapped inside the club Clarissa owns, and he longs to be with her once more.
Death is a dark angel. A handsome man. The promise of violence in his eyes draws Clarissa to him. Will a single night in bed with Death be all it takes to destroy Jason and Clarissa’s love neverending, or will it be just the beginning?
What would you do if you lost the love of your life? How would you live each day knowing that you would never inhale their unique scent, see their smile, or hear their laughter? Would life really be worth living without the one person you treasure most?
A Love Neverending is a story of two lovers torn apart by death. Clarissa has mourned Jason’s loss for years. In a desperate attempt to detach from the pain of his absence, she has turned to Dom’s who can provide her with pain to mask her torment. Little does she know that Jason’s ghost is trapped in the club she owns, forced to watch as she takes lovers that leave her beaten and broken. A chance encounter with a Dark Angel allows Clarissa and Jason to reunite, but it will take an ultimate sacrifice to see them together again.
Your attention will be engaged from start to finish with this story. From the moment you meet the tortured heroine, Clarissa, you’ll ache for her. She doesn’t want to die necessarily. She just wants to be with the man she loves – even if that means facing death. Jason is equally endearing as a man that made a stupid decision and is paying for it each and every time he watches Clarissa submit to sadist Doms in an effort to find comfort. This isn’t an easy read, but as suicide is a secondary character of sorts, it isn’t supposed to be. The rawness of the work is what is what mesmerizes, as do sequences when the straight-talking Dark Angel Tamiel arrives on the page.
Though the BDSM elements are fairly tame, the ghost/angel/Heaven/Hell themes will captivate and engage your interest throughout. If you’re in the mood for something unique, you don’t want to miss A Love Neverending.
