In the eyes of a young girl with a crush, the perfect man exists.
After the events of the last year, she isn’t young or naive anymore. A brutal attack has left nothing but extreme darkness inside her that not even the people who love her the most can mend. A bus ride and a chance encounter have her shadowed path crossing with someone who nurtures the wildness within her as evil ravages her soul and a journey of self-medicating begins. Sometimes, you have to rip apart and tear away at layers of heartbreak and anguish to find a semblance of peace within the future.
Falling into a headspace so dark that there is no coming back.
Sinking into choices so self-destructive that her body, heart, and soul might never heal.
Spiraling down until she becomes her own worst enemy, inflicting further pain.
Pure evil takes away everything that makes her who she is. Cold touches from the hands of strangers and comfort in the form of injecting numbness straight into her veins can’t help her escape. Forget teetering on the edge of the wreckage.
She’s welcoming, inviting, seeking.
Nothing is ever perfect, and the same can be said here.
This is Teagan Hensley’s story.
Perdition deals with heavy topics of violence and emotional distress. The graphic scenes and the followup are intense and dark. Caution is strongly advised for those sensitive to physical and sexual violence, drug use, and depression. Strong language is also used throughout the story. You’ve been advised.
So here’s my backstory to reading Jennifer Michael’s work. This past September, I told myself to pick one author work to read for an upcoming signing. If you’ve read any of my reviews then you know I’m a sucker for dark romances. Nothing is off the table. Truthfully, the darker the better. Not sure what that says about me but that’s a story for another time. I picked book one in this Love Unauthorized Series and I devoured it. Naturally I went into the second book and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this third one, Perdition. I think we all wanted Kai and Teagan’s story and it’s finally here!
You’ve seen the warnings already but I’ll say it again. There are some serious triggers in this book so please do not read this if you can’t handle the darkness. Most of it has to do with drugs and violence but there’s also a mental darkness that I personally think can mess with some people’s minds. So of course I’m all over it, because that’s who I am.
With all that being said, I could have asked for a better story between these two. I was all over the place. One moment I’m smiling and the next my chest hurts and I’m treating to throat punch the author. True story, I have no remorse for my feelings. What I love the most about dark romances is experiencing a messed up and unwavering, epic love from broken people. Tegan is absolutely broken. Her story is heartbreaking and uplifting combined. Two things that don’t naturally go to gather on paper but make a person who they are in real life. Michael’s just has a way with her character building that brings you into the story with them. You feel their pain. You feel their passion and mostly you feel their love.
Simply put, this is one dark romance you do not want to miss out. Be prepared to immensely feel everything and if that isn’t a great sign of a good book and great writing, then I don’t know what is.

About Jennifer Michael
As a child, Jennifer Michael dreamed of being an author. Life and adulting pushed that dream down to a mere fantasy. Then, as a reader, she found the indie romance world, and the dream that had been long ago deemed unattainable became a reality.
Writing fulfills pieces of Jennifer she lost. She writes stories that range from sweet and sultry to dark and daring. Behind her computer, she’s constantly dreaming up where she’ll go next, not wanting to be put in a specific romance genre box. Pushing limits and striving to conquer wherever the characters take her is the ultimate methods to her madness.
Jennifer resides in southwest Florida where she wishes she spent much more time at the beach. She’s an avid reader of gritty books with deep emotion or dark, twisty plots and fond of more than a few guilty-pleasure television shows. She gets sucked into the world of characters from all mediums.
