I find the love letters in my new dorm room, left behind by a previous occupant.They’re meant for someone else, but the words speak to me. They slide off the page and wrap themselves around my body, touching me in places I never knew existed.

I’m falling in love with each word, unable to stop myself.

And I don’t even know his name.

Until they tell me.

His name is Judson Devereux. They say he’s toxic. Falling for him will be a mistake.

I want to believe them. I want to walk away. But the words refuse to be erased from the invisible parts of me.

I’m hooked on the scent of his poison. It’s bad for me. It could kill me. But I’m in too deep.

*This series contains sexual content, dark themes, and violence that could trigger emotional distress in readers.*

Wow!! This had me from start to finish. I had mixed emotions when I got to the last page.

When ex-model, Ivy Hollifield, goes back to college she thought it would be a path to freedom.
With her mother at her back trying to guilt her back into modelling, she won’t have a bar of it.
The letters. These are what start off a whole lot of events spiralling out of control. The warnings, intuition, and the gut feelings can’t stop Ivy from the way she feels for the person who writes them. They call to her in a way she has never felt before.
Who is he? Professor Judson Devereaux. Former lecturer from Oaklaw University. Now held in prison for murder of a student.
The events that unfold are not in any way normal. What transpires between Ivy and Judson have her confused and unsure if this is the right decision.

I’m not going to spoil what happens because if you want to know you’ll have to read it. I would definitely recommend this book. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this story unfolds. This is the first time I’ve read a book by Dori Lavelle and I love the way she writes. I’ve definitely become a fan and hope to see more from her.
