Release Day: Fighting the Dark by Kassidy Carter

 

 

 Fighting the Dark 
By Kassidy Carter
Desperate to escape her past…
Rylee Smith spends her days behind a computer. She hides away in her
home diligently working to make her next deadline. Escaping her
father’s grasp keeps her motivated. Being an author doesn’t leave a lot
of time for a social life. If it wasn’t for her — nagging, yet loving
— best friend she wouldn’t see beyond the walls around her and the
screen.

Determined to prove himself…

Mason Carlson hasn’t had the easiest life. Growing up with a tyrant
for a father and a brother just as demented, he struggles to find his
place within the family. He was given one assignment. Watch her and wait
for further instructions. Mason never expected to become attached to
her. He never expected that her screams would cause him such pain.

Dedicated to righting the wrong…

When secrets are exposed, Mason realizes everything he thought to be
true is lie. It will take everything in him to right those he has
wronged. Everything he has to set her free. And to find a way to Fight
the Darkness.

*Recommend for 18+ due to Violence, language, and adult situations.

 

 

 

Kassidy Carter lives in
Florida with her Husband and two daughters. You can normally find a book
in her hands or doing activities with her daughters. She has a passion
for reading and will read just about anything. Her favorite kind of
stories to read are one’s with happy endings. She has always wanted to
write, but the fear of getting started and not being good enough has
stopped her…until now.
