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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Klaire's Kollection 28 June 2015
By Klaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking emotional journey 27 June 2015
By Melissa Mendoza - 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love an author that can get me into my feelings ... 11 November 2015
By Lady Amber's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Parker is on the run for her life and Rig has been sent to help her, however neither one of them plans on finding the one thing that scares them most.

Watch out Nicholas Spark, I think you got some competition with F.T. Zele. This is the first book I have read by this author and OMG she totally blew me away. The feelings are real!!! Escaping Parker had me on an emotional roller coaster. I love an author that can get me into my feelings and feel what the characters are going through, that's when you know the author has done her job.

I loved the characters, Rig is probably my fave as I am sure most of the ladies will agree. He really wears his heart on his sleeve. He does anything for anyone not caring about his own safety so long as those he his fighting to protect are safe.

If you loved reading books such as Safe Haven, then I highly recommend you read Escaping Parker. I promise this is one book you don't want to miss, so many will be able to relate to Parker and her story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 23 June 2015

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.

Holy mother of all intense and beautifully written stories!!!!
Where did F.T. Zele come from???

OMFG!!!! I literally got pulled into the story; the prologue will do it and good luck putting it down. This is so different than any other book I have read. It gives you a story you will love, the build up is there (edge of your seat, nail biting excitement) the intensity and spark between Clarissa (Parker) and Rig is so strong it's like two magnets fighting fate.

The suspense, the drama, the love, acceptance, the compassion, the hate, the unconditional love, the fury and the closure. It's all there, in the pages of a book that many may not read because you may think it's not for you. I'm here to tell you, STOP WHAT YOU ARE READING AND READ ESCAPING PARKER!!!!!!!

We all live in our own little world. Some of us just getting by and making the best of our situation. When you meet Clarissa, you will view the world differently. I made me wonder how many woman are living a situation like hers. How many Rigs are out there. Ladies, meet your knight in shining armour. Good God, is he stubborn and strict and oh so freaking perfect!
