Synopsis(provided by the author):
It’s too bad for Scarlet that no matter how sweet a person is, fate can still screw you over.
Now she’s jaded, half of her torn away and the remainder flesh and bones. In her grief, all Scarlet wants to do is to rebel against the life that betrayed her and her roommate provides the perfect lure…
Scarlet awakens when she enters the New York City underground, where vice and fortunes thrive. Hustling, trickery and savagery allow her to discover her true self—-her forgotten soul reemerging. She just can’t promise it’ll come back pure.
It won’t matter that there is a shadow in her periphery. Theo Saxon thinks he can save Scarlet from a world she craves and protect her from the very elements he’s spawned from. But it’s through his unwitting instruction that Scarlet will become a part of his league and find the danger he wants so badly to keep to himself.
Scarlet thinks the stakes are within her control. But she won’t just be betting her heart on Theo and his seductive sins. She will wager her life.

Meet the Author

Ketley Allison began her creative career by writing books as birthday presents for her friends (with her friend as the main character and opposite a super sexy lead, of course) before ending it in order to walk down a path she thought she was supposed to follow.

The writing bug never left her—and, in fact, would often bleed into the official papers she was supposed to write—so now Ketley’s putting down her suit and finally following her dream. While her friends are no longer the stars of her books, she still throws in bits and pieces of them into each and every one of her characters.

As a result, her books tend to focus a lot on friendships as well as love, because let’s be honest, friends are what really get you through—especially when your epic love turns into epic heartbreak.

Excerpt:

“Just what do you think you were doing out there?”  Theo asked me.
“I—oof.” He was so close I almost clocked him with my shoulder. “Well, I was trying to get you into a place like this. To help with your cuts.”
“I don’t need help. I thought I made that clear.”
Shrugging, I said, “Fine. Bleed on the Persian carpeting out there, I don’t care.”
The slam of his fist on the marble countertop was so fast, so deliberate, that I flinched after the fact.
“Why the hell aren’t you afraid of me, Scarlet? What is it you think I do?”
I pondered this. “I dunno, eat girls like me for breakfast?”
He clapped a hand over his forehead. “Fucking hell. Stop being glib for one minute and answer me honestly.”
I sighed. “I don’t know. You haven’t given me a reason to be scared.”
“Oh no?” He moved, an infinitesimal bend that brought him closer. “My tearing you out of a brawl didn’t scare you?”
“No.”
“My cornering you in a bedroom, yelling, threatening, didn’t frighten you?”
“Nope.”
“My flashing a weapon didn’t make you want to run?”
I lifted my chin up, near to meeting his nose. “No.”
“And being caught in here with me. Alone.” He tilted his head, nearer to meeting my lips. “That doesn’t make you tremble?”
 I’d been gripping the countertop, so tight my fingers were throbbing, but they were the only things holding me up. I was shaking, yes, and aching, but not for the reasons he thought. I released the tension and drew my body up to his. “Not even a little.”
