Product Description

My name is Quinn and in one night my life changed forever. I lost not only part of my family, but also a huge part of who I was. Struggling to make it through each dark day, uncertain of everything in my life, I’m barely living just existing until a professional suggests I start writing down my thoughts in a journal.

My journals help me muddle through the personal and emotional baggage. Allow me to manage the past with all my Anguish; to function in the present plotting Vengeance; and to hope for my Awakening to a future full of all my dreams for a better life.

That is, until my past comes full force into my present and threatens my future. And the only person who can help me is someone from my past. The same person who has been around in the shadows protecting me, even when I didn’t know he was there, apparently has always had my back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome read!!! 22 November 2016

This story is about a woman whose family suffered a terrible tragedy, and how she has coped. Quinn suffered terrible abuse, and after many years she had gotten to a point of living. Her past has come back, both bad and good parts. It has turned her life upside down, but she is determined to get her revenge and keep her family safe. Stone who is her guardian angel, is planning on helping her as well as keeping her safe, especially since she has had a piece of his heart since he first saw Quinn.

It is a rocky beginning, and gonna be a rocky storyline, but I am rooting for Stone and hoping that Quinn gives him a chance.

The story is well written, and has a bit of a darker storyline. Does talk about rape and other abusive actions, which some may find offensive. I cannot wait to read the other books of the trilogy!!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 STARS. Strong and courageous heroine that values friends and family 20 May 2015

I received a gifted copy in exchange for a honest review.

Anguish is quite a thriller of a novel, and it is just the beginning of the trilogy. The story starts off explosive as the past collides with the present. Quinn relives a part of her past when a certain person comes back for a visit. Scared, she fights back and doesn't realize that a stranger she never met but dreams about has been watching her for years.

The story line has quite the conflict involved. Quinn must protect herself and her family at all costs. I believe the climax will continue to grow as the series continues. Certain people are out to destroy Quinn at all costs. It will be interesting to see how the situation resolves itself. Who will be alive at the end of the story?

Quinn was quite the heroine. She was courageous, a fighter, and passionate about her family. Quinn uses her journals to process the horrors she experienced and the anger she had felt. When she initially meets this stranger, Quinn realizes that this person read her journals. That was so wrong on many levels. Quinn has never released what she experienced to anyone. The hero of the story is a surprise. We don't know too much about him. As the trilogy progresses I know he will become a huge part of the story.

I do have to give readers a warning. While you do not read the horrors in detail there is some discussion of what happened to Quinn in the book. It is a horror that I would never wish upon anyone. I can assure you that the whole book does not consist of this violence, but just be aware that there is a section that discusses certain violent actions. If you can handle that then I believe you will find the book has quite a few plusses to it. The biggest being the characters. From friends to family the characters are the highlight of the Anguish. That is what caught my attention while reading.
5.0 out of 5 stars WOW what a beginning 23 November 2016

I have read a couple of other books by this author but I was totally unprepared for the emotional rollercoaster Anguish threw me into. Quinn's story is emotional and jarring. The night that took part of her family and changed her life has had her on the run from someone who was supposed to be part of her family. Little did she know that even though she's been careful and living under the radar, someone has always had her back.
The chemistry between Quinn and Stone is undeniable but the timing is less than ideal. The madman that wrecked Quinn's life is back and she's out to fight back. However, the pair join forces to make sure Quinn has a future and she and her family can come out of the shadows and live a full life. She has a planned how to overcome her past but can the vengeance she seeks really be had? For the first time in a long time, she might have some control of her future and maybe even have someone who can protector in the light rather than the shadows.
Ms. Earl's characters are tough, well developed, and witty. I found the writing down to earth and solid, much like the storyline. I love the banter and tension between Stoney and Quinn and am ready to dive into book two to see how things further develop. Definitely a book to add to your TBR
4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Suspenseful beginning.... 17 September 2015

Oh my.... I don't know where to start. The prologue sucked me in with a few questions. Who is the "him" that was involved in the "it" and what the heck happened to this poor girl.

Clearly Quinn has some issues as a result of some horrific event from her past. She seems to be barely coping but at the same time moving forward with life the best she can. This strong woman is making something of herself at the bakery. When things slowly start coming to light and she is shares her horrible story my heart hurt for this lovely you woman.

Stone has hidden in the background watching for so long but now he is pressed to show his presence. Since that night he has vowed to take care of Quinn and keep her safe. How will he explain to her all that has happened. Will she believe him? Will she accept his help and work with him to get her revenge.

Even throughout the seriousness of the issues that come to light in this book thee is an underlying sexual tension you can practically feel. When that tension releases it is going to be hot as hell.

I can not believe it ended there... I need Vengeance N O W, please.

D.M. does a great job of catching your interest quickly in this story. There is that constant need to keep reading because there is something more to be discovered. Her characters seem genuine and they draw you in like old friends.

An amazing written book. So much emotions packed into a short amount of time. You feel the emotions of each person in the book. The horrific things that happened to Quinn and how she tries to overcome that night, was point on. From the nightmares, therapist, journals, and sexual encounters without feelings was point on. As for green eyed man, the guardian angel, you want to be angry at him until he explains some things and then you want to say thank you God for my protector! DM Earl...I am speechless, right on!!!
