"John Doe" was just another patient. A criminal.

As a prison nurse, I knew the rules: do my job, don’t get involved, and never let a prisoner get under my skin.

I broke all three.

My passion, my obsession, my addiction. I risked my entire life so we could be together.

I thought helping him escape from prison would be the hard part.

Wow! I don't even know where to start with this one. I can't say that I particularly liked either of the main characters, individually, but together, Gracin and Tessa are riveting. The story is beautifully written, and for a tale with such controversial characters, it is oddly compelling. It is a rare occasion when I find myself actually rooting for the bad guys, and make no mistake, Gracin is most definitely a bad guy, but the connection he and Tessa have is undeniable. It's easy to see how Tessa fell for Gracin's charms, considering the hand she's been dealt, and he brings out her dark side magnificently. Toxic is dark, a bit twisted, fan yourself sexy, heart wrenching, violent, and in the end, even hopeful. Tessa's journey from mouse to lion is quite gripping and one that I couldn't put down.

a white hot masterpiece that will rock, shatter, and rebuild every part of your heart.

Toxic is a white hot masterpiece that will rock, shatter, and rebuild every part of your heart. Nothing in this brilliant storyline will allow you to stand still and gather dust. From the first word you are immediately placed on runaway train that is desperate to jump the rails and find its own track and destination. No matter what you occupy the seat of honor throughout every part of this magnificent journey. What a heavenly dream come true of a story!

When one bad decision leads to another, can good possibly be found in its messy aftermath? When your life is ripped apart by darkness can you ever regain any semblance of sanity or peace? Our beautiful and incredible heroine Tessa has to face this nightmare and then some as her life is torn apart so many times, she isn’t sure there is anything left that she can even attempt to put back together. My heart was devastated to watch what all this unbelievably incredible character endures. Not many people could hold onto their sanity or their hope after everything that she is put through over a few short years. Even our hero is nothing that we could have ever seen coming. He is larger them life and everything we both love and hate. Beyond anything else he is the only man who has ever offered a hand to Tessa with no strings or dark intentions attached.

Nicole Blanchard has proven without a doubt that she is a spectacularly epic author who is an unbelievable force to be reckoned with! She has truly stepped up her game and blessed us with a fabulous book that will forever live within my heart. If you have never heard of this author until now, you will never forget her name after savoring each life-changing emotion within these brilliant pages!

Entertaining Dark Romance

Thoroughly engaging, thought provoking, emotionally charged, dark romantic adventure filled with lots of danger, mystery and heart pounding action. Such an exciting and entertaining read I could not put it down.

Gracin Kingsley is a dark, deadly, highly trained killing machine. Tessa Emmerson RN is a woman that has learned to blend in and disappear notice as much as possible. A prison nurse married to the warden (a crazy sadistic man that has abused her for three years) she is not supposed to get close to the inmates and stays clear of her fellow employees as much as possible. These two have so much pain and suffering in their past you can say they are kindred spirits. The attraction is explosive and so darkly sinister could not put my kindle down.
