Your scars, my scars, our scars...

A desperate promise whispered by her lover in the heat of the night. Can it be enough?

Sebastian saw me at my worst and still he gave me his best. When it was his turn to fall, I feared I wouldn’t be strong enough to catch him. The choices he made as a boy threatened everything about the man he’d become. I knew the struggle to keep his love would be the greatest battle my heart's had to face. Still, I could never have prepared myself for what was coming.

World turned upside down, it was hard enough to live with myself after what I'd done. Already unable to trust, I was trapped in a whirlpool of newly discovered truths. How could I live with his wounds when I was already dying from my own?

You can’t take on my burdens without giving me some of yours in return…

A hopeful plea from his lover's lips. How can he comply when telling her means destroying everything they've worked for?

Danielle was spiraling and it was up to me to reel her in. I could’ve lost it all in a heartbeat, but it would’ve been worth it if it meant she was safe. Calculated to the end, I had an iron clad plan to protect her. I just never imagined it wouldn't be enough.

The ghosts of my past were no longer trapped in my nightmares. They were real and they walked among us, waging war on all that I held dear. How could we win the battle when we had nothing left to fight for?

Two damaged souls. Too many mistakes. One future in jeopardy…



Read in September, 2015

Very rarely do I have a series that stays with me, I don't have to read the previous book in order to know what is happening when I read the next. The Run Series is a fantastic read, and it will have you wanting more after you finish each book.

There is one particular line that I love and is imprinted on my brain and that is "Your scars, my scars, our scars...'
This one line is really a signature line for the whole series.

We continue on from book 2, after that cliffhanger that had be swearing and crying out for more. Questions are answered, more truths are told, and really you will be shocked, emotional at these truths.

Sebastian is a complicated man and we find out more as to why he is the way he is, you will want to hold and hug him, punch him and so much more. There will be a flurry of emotions that will be evoked from the scenes in this book. We find out why Sebastian exhibits all control in his life and this is due to his past and experiences as a child. Some scenes will be upsetting, some scenes will have you wanting to lash out.

Dani we find has turned into more of a stronger woman, this is due to the events in the previous book. We see her allowed to take control in the bedroom, and it is surprising and also good to see this allowed by Sebastian.
Their love is a love that is unbreakable I think, and they both compliment each other in ways that are even unknown to themselves.

Dani I feel takes on a role that she feels she need to be alot stronger to support Sebastian. This is a couple that is destined to be together, no matter what is thrown at them.

We also see Kyle in this book and he still hasn't given up, his love for Dani is as strong as Dani's love for Sebastian. Kyle and dani I feel had a relationship that was comfortable and good. But I don't think Dani feels the pull, sparks and excitement with Kyle as she does with Sebastian.

Alana is still up to her old tricks and in this book she is even worse, it has come to a point where we understand now why she is the way she is. But there is no excuse to why she does what she does in this book. It is no secret that this is one character that I would like to punch in the face lol.

This is a read that is full, of passion, some seriously sexy hot scenes, and some emotional revelations that will have you on the edge of your seat.

A book that is so well written, the characters are so real you could imagine them in real life. Kandice has a way of writing that will pull you into every book and never letting you go, leaving you wanting more.

There is a cliffhanger that will have you screaming, angry, emotional and ready to throw your kindle. I will be one of those people that will be begging, stalking, shouting for book 4.
I will not be patiently waiting for the next book as I need it now!

A fantastic 5 star read that will have you wanting more, a series that is a definite must read.

Your scars, my scars, our scars...'

*****I was lucky and privileged to beta read this book********

* ARC given on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * *

OMG, OMG I highly recommend reading this series in order and just when you think you will get answers BAM!!!! You have more questions, but some truths are told. We get a visit from Kyle again and of course his to Dani's rescue but he can rescue me anytime. But I like that we see him and Sebastian have somewhat of a manly discussion, wanted my two alphas yum. We see a deeper side of Sebastian, to me he's like a onion he has many layers and we get a little deeper into those with Run With You.. We experience very sexual control Sebastian as well and we see Dani taki g control in thebedroom, very nice. We see Dani and Sebastian going up and down. They love each other so strongly that they hurt each other thinking it's for the others better good. I love this couple, thier passion it's explosive and addictive. The story flowed great, the characters are real and damn that ending I loved it. I'm so looking forward to bk. 4 . Recommended reading order Bk. 1 Run To You, Bk. 2 Run From You. This whole series is a 5 star read.

Note: This book is going through the editing process and this excerpt is subject to change.
Excerpt from Run With You:
The lights are off when I pull up to her father’s house in Santa Monica, but that car is in the driveway. I will replace it one day, regardless of the sentiments she feels toward it. Her safety is the most important thing. Someday, she’ll understand that.
Climbing from my bike, I walk to the door, and ring the bell. Ordinarily, I would refrain out of respect for her father, but he works nights. Even if he were home, Danielle has already told me that he’s a heavy sleeper. I wait several minutes before ringing it again. Unless he’s in there with her, she’ll get up and answer eventually. On the third try, the door finally opens.
Peering up at me through sleepy eyes, she says, “What do you want, Sebastian?”
I look down at the perfectly plump lips that make up the entrance to that smart mouth. I’d love to fuck her face until I can’t withstand it any longer. There’s getting head, and then there’s getting head from Danielle Stevens. Crossing her arms over her plump chest, she leans against the door frame. I scan my eyes down her body, and over the exposed flesh of her long legs. My cock twitches as I imagine the various things I could do to her.
Drumming her fingers on her elbow, she glares at me with those Jezebel eyes, and repeats, “I asked what you’re doing here.”
Shifting my weight, to allow more room in my jeans, I say, “We’re going to talk.”
Throwing her hands in the air, she sighs, and curses me in Italian. Her hot-headed temper is one of the many things I love about her. Following her into the living room, I take a seat on the coffee table in front of her. She lays down and pulls a throw blanket from the back of the couch, covering her luscious legs that I can’t stop envisioning around my head. Ordinarily, I would chastise her for trying to cover herself from me, but for tonight’s purposes, it is probably a good idea.
“You have to stop shutting yourself off from me,” I begin.
“Oh, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black,” she says, rolling her eyes and turning her head away from me.
Dropping to my knees, I take her face in my hands. “Princess, when we are fighting I can’t function.”
“Then maybe you should have thought about that before you told her what I did,” she snaps.
“I had to tell Alana what happened that night, Danielle,” I say, biting back my exasperation and running my hand through my hair. “Why can’t you understand that?”

“What I understand, Sebastian is that you gave her more ammunition for her arsenal.”

Run To You

I moved to New York for a fresh start.  I did not move here to fall for a man like Sebastian.

Sebastian Black came into my life like a storm in the peak of the night…dark, raging, all-consuming, and guaranteed to leave destruction in his wake. From the moment our eyes met, he had a hold on me. I wanted, craved, and needed him like nothing I had ever desired before.

The problem was he needed total submission. From the moment he handed me the contract, I knew what he was proposing would destroy me. What I had not planned was his ability to make me crave destruction. I would lose myself in him. Sebastian knew how to take me over the edge, and before I even knew it, I wanted to go freefalling.

It was evident that my past had the ability to destroy us. What I had not calculated was the power of his to do the same. My dark, brooding, impeccably sexual, alpha-male had his own crosses to bear. I was not sure I was strong enough to handle them, or the woman who helped chain him there.



Run From You

Sebastian called me his princess, but he was far from my white knight. He was my drug. One hit and I was addicted to him.

I ran from him to save my life. I kept running to regain my sanity. Kyle would help me with that. His warmth and familiarity were just what I needed to get back on track. Beautiful in his own right, Kyle was everything I once knew to be good about the world. Kyle was perfect for me, he always had been.

Except he wasn't Sebastian, he could never be. The horrors of my past pulled me away from him. The nightmares of my present would bring us back together. Confused though I was, I knew Sebastian was the only choice. The damage done was great, our love greater. Surviving each other would take everything we had, but it was the only option.

Every mistake we had made would collapse on top of us, burying us alive in a mountain of anger and guilt. Neither of us could have prepared for what was coming. The only way out was through. The question became, would we be strong enough to make it through together or would our secrets tear us apart once more?



Kandice is…
…a serial lover of all things pink, self-proclaimed chocoholic, home-schooling mother, and wannabe yogi.
Her debut erotica novel, Run to You, the first in the series Run, is coming soon.
Kandi’s love of storytelling can be traced back to her fourth grade year, when a history lesson on Native Americans became too unimaginative for her liking.  She took it upon herself to liven things up by creating a story that was based on half-truths about a self-named Indian Princess. Kandice is in fact of Native American heritage (her great-grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee) and in her own mind a princess, so you can see where her inspiration came from.  Her story was a huge hit with friends, and an author was born.

Kandice was born and raised in rural Arkansas, where she currently lives with her husband and three children. Though, if you ask her she’ll confirm that her soul is lost somewhere on the west coast waiting for the day that her body can rejoin it.
