I am a brother
I am a police detective
I am a contract killer
I don’t want to love
I don’t want to feel
I don’t want … EMPATHY.
They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life.
I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.
I was a daughter
I was a student
I was a victim
Did I have his love?
Did I make him feel?
Did I have his empathy?
When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

:::::MY 5 STAR REVIEW::::
This is going to be a tough review to write, because ever since I finished I just want to talk about how much this book just f**ked with my head and all that has happened. That being said I will try my best to keep this review spoiler free. This book will captivate you from beginning to the end. Then once finished you can’t get it out of your head, it will be implanted in your brain for days, hell even weeks.
Every single thing about this book oozes brilliance, Ker Dukey has mastered the art of crazy in her writing and has created this highly entertaining, suspenseful masterpiece.
Melody has had a privileged upbringing with loving parents. She is fresh at college and is having a hard time adjusting being away from loved ones. There is one guy that has caught her eye, Ryan. Ryan is dark and mysterious in a very sexy way. He seems to shield himself from the world by remaining silent, which has Melody intrigued. When an assignment is brought to the class’s attention she is in need of a partner, unfortunately for her one of the assholes from class has set his site on her. Just in the knick of time Ryan saves the day by saying he is her partner. Lucky Melody.
Shorty after an eventful class Melody literally runs into this intense, hateful guy who she finds out later on is Blake, Ryan’s brother. Blake is dominant, sexy, a walking contradiction if you will. Hero by day, contract killer by night. Yeah you heard that right. When a job turns ugly confusion sets in, things he doesn’t want to feel starts to surface.
When Melody’s loved ones are taken away she changes, her light has been covered in darkness and left her to drown in sorrow. This isn’t her only problem she is in danger….
This book will have you so wrapped up in all the events taking place that just when you get all cocky and think you have it figured out, you will be wrong, so wrong. Blake was sinfully sexy, Ryan was very attuned with his sexual fantasies, and Melody was along for the ride. For all you psychological thriller fans that love some romance entwined within all the craziness, this is your next book fix.
