    Looking for gritty and visceral narration? The first person point of view is stunning here, as events unfold it just drags you along. Shane is a young man on edges of society in more ways than one. Torments, trials, and tribulations Shane pushes on with an unbreakable will to live. So yeah, the romance in this story is unconventional and not the primary focus of the story. It's also definitely not a rainbows and kittens' story. There is violence, graphic and harsh. NO hiding here. But if you're [...]

    I beta read this book! I love the MCs voice. This is Devon's first solo story, and I know y'all are a tiny bit over the event by now but please give this a try when you're looking for a dritc story for your entertainment.

    Somewhere between 4 and 4.5 starsThis is harsh. Read those tags if you don't believe me.Shane has had a pretty rotten life, but the past year living on the streets had been even rougher. He's made a family with another homeless teenager, and together they try to stay off a certain mobster's radar, while trying to survive day to day.Liam, a major crime police officer, doesn't see the "too skinny for his worn out clothes" street kid when he looks at Shane. He sees someone who has had a hard life y [...]

    Yay!!! It's out! I'm thrilled! I won't rate as I wrote this ;) This was my first solo piece, and a labor of love (as well as blood, sweat and tears). Just wanted to extend another thanks to everyone who helped- and isn't the cover that Natasha did just lovely?*Claps hands excitedly.*Anyhow, this is my space- feel free to ask questions if you like and I hope you like the story!

    I really loved this! It's a gritty story of life on the streets. It's got a bit of supernatural suspense and an actual plot. I love noir feel of the city, and the slow build romance, and most of all the authorial voice. The writing style of this piece is just beautiful, full of depth and resonance. The main character Shane is brimming with uniqueness and dimension. It was Shane's voice that pulled me through the darker parts of the story and kept me mesmerized as things spiraled onward toward th [...]

    Wow, okay, I was not prepared by how unexpectedly dark and violent this was. Not exactly what I was in the mood for. I was looking more for a hurt/comfort type of fic. I did enjoy the MC's voice. And the writing was pretty great. (view spoiler)[ I think I missed something bc I skimmed the death scene--was Dog killed? (hide spoiler)]

    Wow Shane had a really hard life. Thankfully he found Andy on the streets and she became a surrogate sister of sorts. And then he found Liam, oh Liam who is such an amazing character. He took over caring for Shane and they were wonderful together.

    Maybe 2 and a half stars. It's bleak, slow, and strange. A teen first explains his paranormal ability, then it's a long spell of scrambling for food as an unskilled, homeless youth in Los Angeles. I skimmed a lot of that. He is befriended by a younger girl with a dog and has a guardian angel in the form of a cop. There are a few confrontations with bad guys, then a flight, and the story ends. It's not even a happy for now, it's a still alive for now.Besides the hopeless nature of the story, ther [...]

    That was some good shit.Everyone's corrupt, morals are skewy, interesting imagery, and cool writing to match. Like, what more can a girl ask for?

    This story for me was a little bit hard to follow at times. But overall it was a decent story. We have Shane who was brought up in a loveless household(foster care). But at least he was given food and roof over his head as he worked went to high school. On his eighteenth birthday is kicked out. He was stuck living on the streets and it isn’t an easy life. He is violated and goes hungry. But as he is struggling to survive he meets another street child. She ends up being a ‘younger sister’ t [...]

    That was fairly intense. Not what I expected given the prompt but it did the prompt justice. I loved the characters, the story, the ending, the whole concept. Likeable characters but I would have liked to know the characters better; I wanted to hear Andy's and Liam's history. The story could have benefitted from more detail surrounding the nature of Shane's power. An interesting and worthwhile read.
