Product Description

Product Description

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?

My Review
''I don't quite understand how my heart can be dead, but beating at the same time''

Clarissa aka Parker, was a young woman who had made a terrible misjudgement of character. She'd married a monster and now every day she had to walk a tightrope of orders and the ''right'' way of doing things, one task and one foot in front of the other...if she fails, if she falls, Steven will finally live up to his promise. He'll finally kill her. In a way, she wishes for that, she longs just to sink into the darkness of oblivion and finally never wake, to finally find freedom in the dark...but behind her dull eyes there is a small flame...a tiny seed of hope.
Clarissa receives a mysterious email from a client wanting to buy one of her domain names so she sets up an appointment and in a flash...her world is changed. Andrew promises her freedom, he promises her safety but she has to be brave, she has to put her life into the hands of strangers and she has to run!
This is where we met the enigmatic Rig aka Ryan, he offers Clarissa the protection that she needs but he's as guarded and as damaged as she is. Can the two learn to help and heal each other? Can they out run their demons? Well you're going to need to buy the book to find out...and trust me...you NEED to read this book!
Fawn Zele is the queen of emotive writing, she gets inside of your head and twists your brain, she plays with your heartstrings like a master puppeteer and slowly manipulates your thoughts with her melodic prose until you cant help but sob like a baby. You cling to her words for comfort, never daring to put the book down until she's led you home and tucked you in to bed with a comforting 'The End'
I've found myself re-reading this book 3 times now, each time the journey is the same but the genuine fear Zele incites on Clarissas behalf becomes more real! You notice minute details that you missed the first time...Parker's reaction when a glass smashes, a lingering look, something! and suddenly you've been drawn in again.
Fawn is the Debussy of the Indie community and we are all waiting with baited breath for her next concerto.
5 Amazingly well deserved stars!!! This is My book of 2015 so far.

HASH(0xb9ba6834) out of 5 stars Beautifully written 28 June 2015
By n.bradford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I don't know where to start here. If you love F.T. Zele than you know all of her books are chop full of suspense and romance. This book has all of that and more. The subject is a touchy one. Without giving too much away, it's about a girl who is physically and mentally abused by her husband and has no way out. For years she's lived in his bubble. Always being watched and doing exactly as he asks till one day she's given an out. The kicker is she has to leave everything and everyone one behind to do it. Her journey out of hell is a hard one but with the help of some awesome strangers she might just get away.
There's so much more too. The story was just so well written. I fell in love with the characters And I rooted for the girl to find happiness again. You have to read this to understand it all but it's so worth it. Love is worth fighting for right?

Gifted for an honest review – 3 ½ to 4 stars
I had read Starting From Broken previously so I was aware of Fawn’s writing style and the topics that she can cover in her books well enough. I saw a bit of growth here from the previous novel and I was really pleased to see that although I did find the writing a little flat still. Despite the subject matter it didn’t evoke enough emotion in me and I felt it really should have. It’s not to say that this isn’t a good read because it is, it just wasn’t quite there for me.
I immensely enjoyed Rig/Ryan’s character but found it a little difficult to get on board with Clarissa/Parker. I could totally sympathise with the way she felt due to her circumstances but the woman came across as just a little too curt and dare I say ungrateful. The reasons for Rig thinking that he couldn’t be with Parker seemed plausible enough and the whole plot seemed extremely well thought out and researched. Whilst this had a few problems for me I have to say that I did enjoy this, I had to know how it all ended and what would happen with Steven. Fawn certainly managed to keep me wanting more. As I stated earlier Fawn deals with real issues and domestic abuse is a subject that’s hard to navigate in the literary world I think, all too often I see it glorified for the sake of a story. This author didn’t take that route, and while there are one or two scenes that may have turned my stomach a little, it was telling the story, conveying the actual threat to Clarissa. I think it was handled with compassion and done extremely well.
Loved the cover on this, made a difference from all the “body shot” images we normally see. Great little book but unfortunately it was missing that emotion for me; it might be ok for others in that respect as I am a little hard that way. Recommended still and I’ll definitely read more from this author.

HASH(0xb9ba6b40) out of 5 stars Heartbreaking emotional journey 27 June 2015
By Melissa Mendoza with Alpha Book Club - Published on Amazon.com
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review

“Fresh tears blur my vision while I listen, making sure the monster I once thought was my loving husband has left in the moment everything went wrong. I could barely hear anything above the sound of my ribs cracking. The ringing in my left ear is starting to subside, but I’m still unsure if it’s safe to get up.”

Wow what an emotional read!! Get your tissues handy, this story is so beautiful and so sad. I really enjoyed reading this book!

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?

Without giving away too much, I just want to say that this story is about an abused woman, Clarissa tries to figure out a way to leave her abusive husband. But leaving is a lot easier said than done. Rig loves living on the road, with nothing or nowhere to call home and then he finds Clarissa hiding and his whole world comes to a halt. Like I said I don’t want to give too much away, but this story will have you laughing, crying, nervous and so many other things. I really loved this book, there was never a dull moment with this book. Great, great job!

HASH(0xb9ba69fc) out of 5 stars A Must Read! 26 June 2015
By LHamp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have read Zele's other two books and enjoyed them, but Escaping Parker takes the cake. It is definitely her best work to date. From page one Zele knows how to draw the reader in. You get so sucked into the story that there is no putting it down until it is finished.

Clarissa finds her self fighting for her life. She never thought her marriage would turn out this way. He days are filled with following rules and chores that must be done to a certain standard or deal with the repercussions, which are great. So severe that the next time Steven's hand connects, it could be her last. Every time she has tried to leave, he and his goons have found her. When she finally realizes that she needs to seek outside help to get away from him for good, she didn't think it would show up in quite the way that it did.

When a business meeting turns into the last day she will be known as Clarissa, she has to make a fast decision to accept the help in front of her or take her chances on her own again. Leaving everything behind, her parents, her business, money and belongings is harder than she thought. She can leave no trace of her self behind. With the help and support of of Rig, she slowly begins to build a new life for herself and along the way she learns that she isn't the only one with demons in her past. As her friendship with Rig grows into something more will they both be able to set themselves free of their pasts and try to find a future together? Grab this amazing 5 star read and find out.

Zele has a knack for getting in your head. Her stories are fairly fast passed and filled with suspense, heartache, happiness, friendship and love. An Emotional roller coaster ride so to speak. She writes about a tough subject, but does it with understanding. She give the reader a real look into the life of someone so beaten down that they will do just about anything to find a way to be saved. Extremely well written and thought provoking.
