Clarissa never thought at age twenty-six she would be fearing for her life. Everything was going as planned, until her husband started showing a side of himself she didn’t know existed. Failed attempts at leaving him have now left her fighting for her life. Literally. She knows she has to figure out a plan to free herself from his tight grip, but it’s harder than she imagined.
Rig endured much pain after a tragedy left him trying to figure out his place in the world. He now plows through situations, leaving nothing safe in his wake. He lives for the thrill of danger and loves to be on the open road. He doesn’t mix business with pleasure, and he didn’t expect to fall in love with the girl he is hiding out.
When things get too intense between Clarissa and Rig, he decides he can no longer be her safety net. With his feelings clouding his judgment, it’s hard for him to choose between right and wrong.
Will Rig be able to figure out what he wants in time to save Clarissa’s life, or will she become another statistic of domestic abuse?

She is taking her passion for books and making it her reality with writing, bringing these voices to life. She loves interacting with others talking about great Books and Book Boyfriends. She has a weakness for Sour Patch Kids and has inappropriate fun when she is having her wine at night tweeting her thoughts. She also likes to make up words. The best word to describe her is Winetastic!

Sweet Jesus. Escaping Parker was intense…. and alarming. It begs the question, how well do you really know anyone?!? Or better yet – can someone learn to trust and love again after being treated so horribly.
Clarissa’s life is lived one scheduled and tormented moment at a time. What should be her picturesque marriage is instead a relationship filled with abuse and anguish. Destruction. When given an opportunity to find hope, she isn’t given time to second guess her options. Stay and die or escape to breathe.
Her journey is filled with strangers and self doubt. Fear. The only comfort comes from her traveling companion, Rig. The two connect and contrast all at the same time – because falling in love when you’re running isn’t the smartest idea. Yet, they just cannot not be. The occasions when they surrender to all that they are feeling are amazing – filled with passion and desire. As they fall in love, they are both reborn and it was beautiful to read about.
But their story isn’t some sweet romance. They are trying to escape Clarissa’s past and a very dangerous man. I don’t want to say much about the husband (you need to experience it first hand) and that aspect of the story but know that scenes with him are unnerving. You are constantly anticipating him and you are terrified for Clarissa. He is pure evil.
Clarissa’s book, Escaping Parker has an incredible story – the plot keeps you right on the edge of your seat until the very last page. I highly recommend this suspenseful book – it’s an excellent read.
